Indian Premier League - 23rd match

Delhi Daredevils v Deccan Chargers

Delhi Daredevils won by 5 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)


Morkel to Sangakkara, OUT, top-edge and caught! That was on the middle-edge, Sanga was getting frustrated with all those hits to the fielders and he tried to half-pull, half-flick it away, only gets a leading edge and it soared high in the air before landing safely in the hands of the fielder. Well-caught by Nagar and Morkel has stuck immediately!

KC Sangakkara c Nagar b Morkel 1 (9m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Deccan Chargers 10/1   S Dhawan 9* (7b 1x4)   M Morkel 0.2-0-1-1


Nadeem to Dhawan, OUT, first ball and he has a wicket! Straighter one from Nadeem and the batsman tried to go for the reverse sweep, he missed it and that one seemed to be crashing straight into the stumps.

S Dhawan lbw b Nadeem 44 (40m 29b 5x4 1x6) SR: 151.72

Deccan Chargers 81/2   PA Patel 34* (19b 5x4)   S Nadeem 0.1-0-0-1


Nadeem to Patel, OUT, swept and out, caught! He was missed off the previous such stroke no such luck this time. Nadeem has his second wicket as Patel's sweep has been well caught at deep square-leg by the fielder, who judged it rather well at the fence. And no problems with the sun either.

PA Patel c Jayawardene b Nadeem 45 (42m 27b 5x4 1x6) SR: 166.66

Deccan Chargers 106/3   DT Christian 12* (10b 1x4)   S Nadeem 2-0-8-2


Nadeem to Duminy, OUT, that is spooned away to the short mid-wicket fielder for a simple catch for Virender Sehwag! Duminy tried to play it to the leg-side and the slowness of the deliver seemed to have affected his stroke, got a bit of an edge and he has to go now.

JP Duminy c Sehwag b Nadeem 4 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Deccan Chargers 113/4   DT Christian 15* (15b 1x4)   S Nadeem 2.4-0-11-3


Yadav to Christian, OUT, short from Umesh Yadav and Christian has unleashed a pull, does not get on the top of it, a bit of a top-edge and it goes into the hands of Nadeem again at deep square-leg.

DT Christian c Nadeem b Yadav 19 (30m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.47

Deccan Chargers 125/5   B Chipli 8* (9b 1x4)   UT Yadav 2.1-0-28-1


Morkel to Jhunjhunwala, OUT, Edged and caught! Goes down the track and wanted to clear the long-off fielder, gets a thin edge through to the wicket-keeper. They wanted to check the no-ball, but it looks fine.

AA Jhunjhunwala c †Ojha b Morkel 4 (4m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Deccan Chargers 132/6   B Chipli 10* (11b 1x4)   M Morkel 2.2-0-14-2


Morkel to Steyn, OUT, short of length and Steyn wanted to go over Sehwag at short cover, manages to only get it up to him and they are now seven down.

DW Steyn c Sehwag b Morkel 2 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Deccan Chargers 134/7   B Chipli 10* (11b 1x4)   M Morkel 2.5-0-16-3


Morkel to Mishra, 1 run, OUT, out, run-out! Poor running from Mishra there, that was an easy two. Short from Morkel, cut away but loops in the air, it was away from the fielder and should have been two. The batsman was busy looking at whether the fielder was going to catch it and he missed coming back quickly for the second. Woefully short of the crease.

A Mishra run out 6 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Deccan Chargers 156/8   B Chipli 25* (17b 3x4 1x6)   M Morkel 3.5-0-22-3
