Indian Premier League, 51st match: Delhi Daredevils v Kolkata Knight Riders at Delhi, May 7, 2012
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 6 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)
7 May 2012 - night match (20-over match)

All set for the start. KKR out in the middle. Sehwag and Warner walk out. Lee with the new ball

cricketsimpleton: "Rather than MI which just thrives on freaky wins, this is the best two teams which virtually knocks the opposition out with authority. I really wish this should live up to the billing."

arasu: "I don't understand why sehwag doesn't use A.Russell, he is a very good allrounder, he can be handy with both ball and bat and can contribute better than Ross."

Pratul: "@Abbas - just the way you drop Pawan Negi who picked up 4 wickets in last match."

Santosh: "Yusuf Vs Irfan. That's not a bad contest either."

TAhmeed: "KKR have more local Delhi boys than DD." Gambhir, Bhatia, Sangwan, yep

Abbas: "How can you drop de Lange who picked up 3 key wickets in the last match ???"

Anand: "Gambhir outdid Dada in Kolkata, will he do the same against Viru in Delhi?"

prabu: "Sangwan up against Delhi......Hmm i would love to watch him bowl against his old team mates."

7.30 pm Sehwag wins the toss and Daredevils will have a bat

Sehwag says that Daredevils can play freely now, without the worry of keeping an eye on the points table. "The last time we played on this track, we got 200-odd runs against Mumbai [Indians]," he says

Varun Aaron, the India fast bowler, is fit and comes into the XI in place of Pawan Negi. David Warner is also playing in place of Pietersen. Daredevils are playing after a five-day break

Brett Lee and Pradeep Sangwan, the local boy, are in for KKR, in place of Marchant de Lange and Iqbal Abdulla

How about this fast bowling attack? Morne Morkel, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron and Irfan Pathan

Gambhir [when asked whether he is hiding Narine from Daredevils today]: "Obviously he is playing today. He is our key bowler."

7.10 pm While Saturday was all about dada and Eden Gardens, today's clash is the big one, between leaders Delhi Daredevils and second-placed Kolkata Knight Riders

Here is Kanishkaa Balachandran's preview for this game. Some things to watch out tonight. Sunil Narine, with 13 wickets at 5.25 runs per over, will be up against two of the best players of spin in the game, Virender Sehwag and Mahela Jayawardene. Sehwag has already said that the Kotla pitch will not help Narine as much as the Eden Gardens one has.

It is time KKR's batsmen, excluding Gautam Gambhir, made some runs. Their captain has smacked 421 runs; the next-best for KKR is Jacques Kallis, with 184

Daredevils have lost Kevin Pietersen to the upcoming England-West Indies series; David Warner has joined them. The last time he played in India, Warner hammered two centuries in five innings at a strike-rate of 172.63 for New South Wales in the Champions League T20

0.2

Lee to Warner, no run, fuller and moving in to the pads this time, played out softly to midwicket

0.3

Lee to Warner, no run, now one that angles across the lefthander, widish outside off, Warner goes reaching out for it, and is beaten again

0.4

0.5

Lee to Warner, no run, pushes a length ball very carefully towards cover

0.6

Lee to Warner, no run, Lee starts with a maiden, to Warner of all batsmen, Warner plays this length ball from the crease and pushes it tamely to point

Sangwan to Warner, 1 run, Sangwan has surprised Warner with a 135.4 kph short delivery angled into him, he went belatedly for the pull, but the top-edge fell short of Lee at third man

1.4

Sangwan to Sehwag, FOUR, high full toss now, and this time Sehwag does not miss out, he had been going too hard at Sangwan earlier, now he just opens the face and times it between cover and point

5.6

Kallis to Jayawardene, no run, massive shout, huge, KKR are absolutely convinced Mahela has edged that one to the keeper, big sound as the length ball passes Mahela's attempted drive, bat did not hit the ground, pad nowhere near bat, that could only have been one thing then, what a let-off

ryan: "To think that before this match some of the comments on the preview were calling for Kallis to be dropped. This is a man who bats in the top 3, is second highest run scorer for KKR after GG, and takes top order wickets. Madness to leave him out."

Gautam having a chat with McCullum, Mahela having one with umpire Cloete

Omar: "The 9 lives of Mahela Jayawardene."

Giri: "Doesn't DD batting look thin without Pieterson? If the top 3 get out soon, Delhi batting does look pretty thin. Today's game will be a huge test for DD."

Karn: "@Ryan - Plus, he's possibly one of the best safety nets you can hope to have. If Gauti gets out, it's this man on whom you can rely to bat out the 20 overs. Rightly said, madness for calling him to be dropped. If anyone has to be dropped it has to be YKP."

Time Out

Bhatia and Gambhir in discussion with Lee, who will bowl now

Akash: "This is the problem that Delhi has, once top 3 are out and with Taylor in a horrible form, they dont have anyone to take them to a good total, someone like Pollard or Matthews is what they need!"

Rohit: "They should give Yusuf a bowl. Irfan may become emotional and get out."

IK Pathan st †McCullum b Narine 36 (34m 22b 4x4 1x6) SR: 163.63

19.4

Narine to Nadeem, OUT, wickets tumbling this over, big Morne gone without facing a ball, Nadeem missed the carrom ball as he tried to sweep, appeal for lbw turned down, they went for the leg-bye, there was a direct hit at the striker's end, all Morne could do was take evasive action

19.5

Narine to Aaron, 1 run, skips down the track to a carrom ball and mistimes the loft over extra cover

19.6

Narine to Nadeem, OUT, he walked across and outside off looking to scoop him over short fine, misses as the ball turns in, non-striker was looking for a bye, and there is a run-out as Baz gets the ball to Narine

VR Aaron run out 1 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Irfan's knock giving Delhi something to bowl at, they stumbled in the middle of the innings. There was some nip off the pitch for the fast bowlers at the start, and some swing for Lee towards the end. Does not look like it will be an easy chase, given Delhi's pace attack

AB: "Irfan destroyed Delhi earlier in the league in Kolkata. He has done it again. Both times with the bat though."

End of over 20 (12 runs) Delhi Daredevils 153/9

    • S Nadeem 0 (2b)
    • SP Narine 4-0-23-2
