Indian Premier League - 46th match

Deccan Chargers v Delhi Daredevils

Delhi Daredevils won by 4 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

Hello there. Welcome to Deccan v Delhi. A tale of two inconsistent teams.

Please read the Preview by Dustin Silgardo.

Dustin has David Warner in the spotlight. He writes, "David Warner scored three half-centuries and a 46 in his first five matches of this IPL, but has since reached double figures just once. He needs to find that early form in order to take some of the pressure off Sehwag."

Toss Delhi has choosen to bowl first.

Sangakkara We have always had great wickets here in Hyderabad. Any team coming in can expect great tracks.

Sehwag: We have to win all five. It's possible. Last time Deccan Chargers did it; so hopefully we can do it this time. We talked about in the meeting that we should play fearless cricket. We would like to use whatever is in the track and bowl well. We should give our best in this game. Warner, Van Der Merwe, and Umesh Yadav are out. Avishkar Salvi, Aaron Finch and James Hopes are in.

Sangakkara: For us this is a good opportunity to challenge ourselves and put up a good score. Pragyan Ojha is out and Ishant Malhotra is in. "

TV flashing that JP Duminy in for Cameron White. Sanga didn't say that; this is from the tv.

Just ten odd minutes for the start of the game.

0.1

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, What a shot. Especially if you consider that it was the first ball. Shikhar Dhawan leaned forward to play a peachy extra cover drive. The front elbow high and lovely punch at the point of impact. It was a full pitched delivery

0.2

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, Edged this time, past second slip. It was a good-length delivery that moved away from Dhawan who stabbed out at it.

0.3

Morkel to Dhawan, 1 leg bye, ha! yorker on the boot! It screamed full towards leg stump line, Dhawan didn't have any time to get his bat down in time and he tries to get his foot up and away from the line of fire. Too late. The ball rams into his boot

0.4

Morkel to Ravi Teja, no run, short of length, climbing outside off, edged away towards second slip

0.5

Morkel to Ravi Teja, 1 leg bye, another one that moves past the prod and runs away of the pad

0.6

Morkel to Dhawan, no run, shout for lbw but that was high. It landed on a length and straightened on the leg and middle line. Dhawan was beaten by the pace and by that straightening and was hit on the pad. I think it was high. Let's see if they show a replay. Replays in: It pitched outside leg stump

End of over 1 (10 runs) Deccan Chargers 10/0 (RR: 10.00)

2.1

Salvi to Dhawan, FOUR, Crunchy! It was a length delivery on the middle stump line and Shikhar, aka babu as they call him, wafts it up and over the bowler. Imperious swing of the bat. Very nonchalantly done.

2.5

Salvi to Ravi Teja, OUT, Late on the pull. Done in for pace and the bounce. A gentle dolly of a catch to the keeper. Teja went for the pull against the short delivery and only managed to top-edge it high and the keeper settled under it. He tried to fetch it from well outside off and that also did him in

DB Ravi Teja c †Ojha b Salvi 2 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

2.6

Salvi to Sangakkara, no run, What was that? Sanga tries the "idea shot" as its called in some gully cricket. He tried to leave a length delivery outside off all alone but was late in withdrawing the bat. The ball ran off the bat to the right of the keeper who does well to make a diving stop

End of over 3 (5 runs) Deccan Chargers 19/1 (RR: 6.33)
KC Sangakkara    0* (1b)      AM Salvi    1-0-5-1

3.1

Pathan to Dhawan, no run, leans forward to flick this full delivery to midwicket

3.2

Pathan to Dhawan, FOUR, Very cool! he is in some form tonight. It was the outswinger around off but he waited, covered for the swing, opened the bat-face and unfurled a stylish cover drive through point. Very neatly done.

4.5

Salvi to Sangakkara, no run, tries to heave this over wide mid-off region but makes no contact.

4.6

Salvi to Sangakkara, 1 run, around the off stump line, punched down to mid-off

Abhi: "Deccan do the right thing by dropping White..but they make the mistake of not sending Sunny Sohal to open, when he scored 50+ in about 24 balls last match. I think it's the minor mistakes like these that's causing them to lose games."

End of over 5 (6 runs) Deccan Chargers 30/1 (RR: 6.00)
KC Sangakkara    5* (9b 1x4)      AM Salvi    2-0-11-1

5.1

Morkel to Sangakkara, no run, kicks up from back of length, moves towards off, Sanga gets behind the line to defend it back to the bowler

Morkel to Sangakkara, FOUR, edged over slips. Morne stares. It's a length delivery angling across Sanga who chooses to slam it over midwicket. The ball flew over wide slip

5.3

Morkel to Sangakkara, FOUR, Crashed! He cleared his front foot and slammed the length delivery on the up and to the left of the bowler.

5.4

Morkel to Sangakkara, FOUR, What a lovely shot! Treat! It's a length delivery around off stump and he leaned forward and lifted it ever so beautifully, ever so classically, over mid-off. Pure class.

7.1

Morkel to Sangakkara, no run, full in length outside off stump and Sanga drags it down to mid-on. He finds the fielder, though

Bharat: "@ Abhi - Sohal is a player who is extremely reliant on luck, not to detract from his scoring abilities, but I would say the gamble of sending Ravi Teja up the order though it failed was one worth taking.."

7.2

Morkel to Sangakkara, no run, shuffles across and goes for the pull. But ends up lapping it to right of the keeper. He didn't get hold of that obviously

7.6

Morkel to Dhawan, FOUR, cuts in from outside off, from that round-the-stumps angle and this is the third time (iirc) that Dhawan gets an inside edge on the attempted cut. It runs down to fine-leg region. The angle cramped him

End of over 8 (5 runs) Deccan Chargers 53/1 (RR: 6.62)
S Dhawan    26* (15b 5x4)      M Morkel    3-0-26-0
KC Sangakkara    22* (24b 4x4)      AB Agarkar    1-0-4-0

8.2

Agarkar to Dhawan, 2 runs, top edge but lands safely. Agarkar having no luck today. His fans will say that's the story of his life. It was banged in short and Dhawan edged his pull. The ball landed clear of fine-leg fielder

8.3

Agarkar to Dhawan, 1 run, pushes this towards covers. Sanga wants a run, has to get back and manages to do it in time to beat the direct hit. Overthrows, though.

10.3

11.5

Hopes to Sangakkara, FOUR, Slog time! Edgy. He ran down the track and tried to slug this length delivery across the line. The lucky edge. And the ball runs past the leg stump to fine-leg boundary

11.6

Hopes to Sangakkara, 1 wide, And so James pushes this even further outside off. Wide, though.

11.6

Hopes to Sangakkara, OUT, Sanga's slog-mood has done him in. He was playing so so beautifully but suddenly started to play the across-the-line hoicks. This was full and on the leg stump line, so the shot to the leg was on but he would have normally whip-flicked it. Instead, this time, he tried to heave it but only got a top edge to covers

KC Sangakkara c Sehwag b Hopes 44 (36b 8x4 0x6) SR: 122.22

14.4

Nagar to Duminy, (no ball) 1 run, Turn Brad Hogg mode on- He would have screamed "J P is not happy!" He top edges the slog sweep and it's a simple catch to deep midwicket. Hold on JP Will be happy! That was a no ball! The replays confirm that and Duminy is back. The crowd roar!

14.4

Nagar to Christian, FOUR, full toss time! Bang. The ball is being picked from wide midwicket boundary

14.5

Aravind: "Regarding umpires checking for no ball when they have a doubt; they do this only if a wicket falls of that ball, else they don't do it. So how many no balls have gone undeclared and how many free hits do the batsmen miss this way?"

Sanjeev: "If there ever was a "Most Popular Player" award on Cricinfo it should go to Agarkar! A match hasn't gone by where we dont mention him! Irrespective of him playing or not! Agarkar ki jai ho! (hail Agarkar)"
