Delhi Daredevils won by 6 wickets (with 28 balls remaining)
1 May 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Negi to Rahane, OUT, the reverse sweep goes wrong, what a way for such a good partnership to end. He hits it from outside leg stump to Sehwag at point, easy catch

AM Rahane c Sehwag b Negi 42 (36m 32b 7x4 0x6) SR: 131.25

Rajasthan Royals 71/1   R Dravid 26* (20b 4x4)   P Negi 1.4-0-7-1

Negi to Watson, OUT, huge wicket this, Watto is gone as he looks to swipe that towards his favourite midwicket region, that stayed lower than Watson expected and sneaked under his bat, off stump is on the ground, Negi is jumping for joy

SR Watson b Negi 8 (7m 9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 88.88

Rajasthan Royals 87/2   R Dravid 34* (24b 5x4)   P Negi 2.5-0-15-2

Yadav to Shah, OUT, Rajasthan are three down, and rapidly losing their way, Shah is the man who's gone this time, looking for a cute shot over short fine leg,doesn't get enough on it, off the glove I think, and the ball lobs towards the keeper, easy as they come for the keeper

OA Shah c †Ojha b Yadav 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Rajasthan Royals 90/3   R Dravid 36* (26b 5x4)   UT Yadav 1.4-0-14-1

Negi to Hodge, OUT, Negi's dream day continues, Hodge is the man to go, and this is turning into an alarming collapse for Rajasthan, looking to smash that from outside off, off the back foot, couldn't keep it low and that flies to backward point, and what seemed a formidable middle order of Shah, Watson and Hodge has folded in the space of ten deliveries

BJ Hodge c Sehwag b Negi 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Rajasthan Royals 93/4   R Dravid 38* (28b 5x4)   P Negi 3.2-0-16-3

Negi to Menaria, OUT, Negi gets four, 4 for 18 for Negi, easily the best bowling figures for the 19-year-old, Menaria was looking to power that off the back foot, a bit of a top edge on that and the ball balloons towards Pietersen at long-on, easy take for him and Rajasthan have slumped from 87 for 1 to 95 for 5, that was the last ball of Negi's spell as well, not a bad way to finish

AL Menaria c Pietersen b Negi 2 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Rajasthan Royals 95/5   R Dravid 38* (28b 5x4)   P Negi 4-0-18-4

Morkel to Dravid, OUT, Morkel outstanding IPL continues, the 19th over changed the game two days ago, this time he starts the 19th with the wicket of Dravid, a back of length ball that Dravid wanted to club but ended up inside-eding onto his pad and then the stumps

R Dravid b Morkel 57 (76m 43b 7x4 0x6) SR: 132.55

Rajasthan Royals 128/6   SP Goswami 12* (16b 1x4)   M Morkel 3.1-0-17-1
