Indian Premier League - 51st match

Delhi Daredevils v Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders won by 6 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)


Kallis to Sehwag, OUT, Kallis has struck the big blow, Sehwag was in the crease after those two short balls, this one was a length delivery, he tried to work it on the leg side, missed, and that looked like hitting leg stump, the ball seemed to come in a bit after pitching as well

V Sehwag lbw b Kallis 23 (17m 9b 3x4 1x6) SR: 255.55

Delhi Daredevils 40/1   DA Warner 15* (12b 1x4 1x6)   JH Kallis 0.3-0-6-1


Kallis to Warner, OUT, JH Kallis, the veteran, takes out the dangerous openers, Warner tried the same stroke over cover again, this time there was no width available even as he made room outside leg, and the ball bounced to take a thick edge to the keeper, Gambhir likes that, he is pumped

DA Warner c †McCullum b Kallis 21 (27m 19b 2x4 1x6) SR: 110.52

Delhi Daredevils 49/2   DPMD Jayawardene 3* (6b)   JH Kallis 1.4-0-13-2


Narine to Taylor, OUT, Mahela is gone this time, that was too tight a single to attempt, Taylor dropped a length ball behind point, Gautam was upto it quickly, fell forward and lobbed the ball along the ground for a direct hit, Mahela out by atleast a metre, while still on the ground, the KKR captain pumps his fists

DPMD Jayawardene run out 30 (45m 27b 3x4 1x6) SR: 111.11

Delhi Daredevils 95/3   LRPL Taylor 13* (21b)   SP Narine 1.4-0-8-0

LRPL Taylor c Bhatia b Sangwan 16 (44m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 59.25

Delhi Daredevils 100/4   IK Pathan 2* (4b)   PJ Sangwan 3.2-0-34-1


Lee to Nagar, OUT, and Lee's response is a stinging, slightly inswinging, yorker that uproots middle and leg stump as Nagar flails in vain

Y Nagar b Lee 10 (13m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

Delhi Daredevils 125/5   IK Pathan 17* (13b 2x4)   B Lee 3-1-26-1

Delhi Daredevils 152/7   M Morkel 0* (0b)   SP Narine 3.3-0-22-2


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

M Morkel run out 0 (2m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Delhi Daredevils 152/8   S Nadeem 0* (1b)   SP Narine 3.4-0-22-2
