Indian Premier League - 39th match

Delhi Daredevils v Rajasthan Royals

Delhi Daredevils won by 1 run

5.1

Cooper to Taylor, no run, shortish ball, hurrying on to the batsman, tries to pull it away but beats the bat and hits his pads.

5.2

Cooper to Taylor, no run, on the middle stump, pitched up and Taylor has to go forward to defend it back to the bowler.

5.3

Cooper to Taylor, no run, and another one with perfectly the right line and length and Taylor cannot do much apart from defending it back to the bowler.

5.4

Cooper to Taylor, 1 run, on the front foot to this good length ball and driven on the up to mid-on for a single

5.5

Cooper to Sehwag, SIX, fullish ball and Sehwag has drilled it over mid-off for a six! That was hit rather flat after the batsman made room and it carried the distance

5.6

Cooper to Sehwag, no run, takes a little pace off the ball and Sehwag looked set to give himself some room yet again, tries to drive it through the covers. A bit of mistiming and there is no run.

Delhi Daredevils 42/2   KK Cooper 1-0-7-0

12.1

Cooper to Taylor, no run, good length, on the up and driven to the short covers.

12.2

Cooper to Taylor, no run, pitched a little up this time and driven, yet again to the short cover.

12.3

Cooper to Taylor, no run, shorter, down the leg side and Taylor misses. He has a puzzled look why the umpire did not call that wide.

12.4

Cooper to Taylor, 2 runs, on his pads yet again and this time he has drilled it to the deep square-leg for a couple of runs.

12.5

Cooper to Taylor, no run, outside the off stump, full and he tries to dab it to third-man but misses

12.6

Cooper to Taylor, 2 runs, length ball, on his pads, flicked away to the leg side, where the deep square leg has to rush to his right to clean up.

Delhi Daredevils 99/2   KK Cooper 2-0-11-0

16.1

Cooper to Ojha, 1 run, slower, floated it up outside the off stump and the batsman waits for a while before he decides to dab it to the off side for a single

16.2

Cooper to Nagar, 1 leg bye, quicker this time and pitched right up to the bat, missed and there was an appeal for an lbw, not-out given. Cooper tried to kick the ball to the stumps because the batsman was out of his crease, it missed the stumps and they go for an overthrow.

16.3

Cooper to Ojha, 1 run, yorker length again and driven to the off side for a single

16.4

Cooper to Nagar, no run, very slow, rolled his fingers over it and beats the batsman

16.5

Cooper to Nagar, 1 leg bye, quicker down the leg side, does not get any timing on it and misses it. Hits the pad and they are away for a single

16.6

Cooper to Ojha, no run, short of length and the batsman was almost waiting for a slower one, it was quicker this time and the pull shot does not connect.

Delhi Daredevils 118/4   KK Cooper 3-0-13-0

18.1

Cooper to Pathan, 2 runs, on his pads, fuller and flicked away to the deep square-leg region and they sprint well for a couple.

18.2

Cooper to Pathan, 1 run, slower ball, shorter as well and Pathan taps it away to the leg side for a single

18.3

Cooper to Nagar, 1 run, some bounce there or was it a case of playing on the front foot to a ball pitched up, tries to defend, hits his gloves and it rolls over to the off side

18.4

Cooper to Pathan, 1 leg bye, on his pads, pitched outside the leg and misses the bat, some appeal but they are off for a leg-bye

18.5

Cooper to Nagar, 1 wide, a wide this time, down the leg-side, the batsman isn't reading Cooper too well and that is making it difficult for him to get any bat on it.

18.5

Cooper to Nagar, 1 run, slower outside the off stump, 108 km/hr, tries to cut but gets it only up to the point region

18.6

Cooper to Pathan, no run, quick, yorker and dug out by Pathan, but fails to get it any other place but back to the bowler.

Delhi Daredevils 132/5   KK Cooper 4-0-19-0
