Indian Premier League, 1st match: Kolkata Knight Riders v Delhi Daredevils at Kolkata, Apr 3, 2013
Kolkata Knight Riders won by 6 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)
3 April 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Lee to Chand, OUT, what a start that is to the season, forget Pitbull, this is what people want to see, Lee steams in and fires in a lethal away-cutter, Unmukt Chand is clueless against that one, off stump is reclining on the turf, all those wanting to see Chand will be disappointed, but Lee is jumping for joy

UBT Chand b Lee 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 0/1   DA Warner 0* (0b)   B Lee 0.1-0-0-1

Narine to Warner, OUT, there's the impact Narine can have, Warner is gone, that was a tough tough delivery first up for Warner, it spat up off the pitch, a lot more than Warner expected, he edges it through to first slip, where the man with one of the safest pairs of hands, Jacques Kallis, snaps it up as comfortably as he has over the past 15 years

DA Warner c Kallis b Narine 21 (30m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 110.52

Delhi Daredevils 44/2   DPMD Jayawardene 20* (15b 3x4)   SP Narine 0.5-0-3-1

Balaji to Juneja, OUT, terrific catch by Shukla, Juneja continued to throw his bat at everything, he skipped away from the stumps and skied that towards deep point, the ball is in the air for ages, Shukla has plenty of ground to cover, he charges in and lunges to take a low catch

MC Juneja c Shukla b Balaji 8 (13m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Delhi Daredevils 59/3   DPMD Jayawardene 27* (24b 4x4)   L Balaji 2.5-0-15-1

Bhatia to Ojha, OUT, the lack of runs has forced Ojha to go for the bit hit, he steps out and sends it a long way in the air but not long enough, he picks pout Brett Lee at long-off, no problem taking that one, Delhi losing their way here

NV Ojha c Lee b Bhatia 9 (9m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Delhi Daredevils 79/4   DPMD Jayawardene 38* (34b 5x4)   R Bhatia 3-0-18-1

Bhatia to Botha, OUT, goes for the reverse-sweep, he misses and that wasn't going to miss the stumps, struck on the thigh pad just outside off stump, and he's a goner, a touch unlucky for Botha, more reward for Bhatia, who continues to be a canny customer in the IPL

J Botha lbw b Bhatia 7 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

Delhi Daredevils 88/5   DPMD Jayawardene 40* (36b 5x4)   R Bhatia 3.2-0-19-2

Narine to Pathan, OUT, Narine is magic in the IPL, how long before the questions over his 1.9million tag crops up, he was much too early into his hoick, sends the ball high and not far at all, Tiwary gets under that at long-off, and Delhi have lost another

IK Pathan c Tiwary b Narine 4 (10m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Delhi Daredevils 97/6   DPMD Jayawardene 44* (41b 5x4)   SP Narine 1.2-0-5-2

Narine to Russell, OUT, this was coming , Russell really didn't have much of an idea of what Narine was bowling, he closes the face much too early to a legspinner and that lobs up off the leading edge to Narine, who collects that easily, doesn't bother celebrating, just drops the ball at his feet, 'boringly easy this is,' he seems to be saying

AD Russell c & b Narine 4 (11m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Delhi Daredevils 113/7   DPMD Jayawardene 55* (48b 7x4)   SP Narine 2.5-0-10-3

Lee to Jayawardene, OUT, another full toss from Lee, this time the result is completely different, Jayawradene looks to make room and chip it over the off side, ends up chipping it to Narine at cover, Jayawardene is distraught at that

DPMD Jayawardene c Narine b Lee 66 (94m 52b 8x4 1x6) SR: 126.92

Delhi Daredevils 125/8   S Nadeem 1* (3b)   B Lee 4-0-40-2

Narine to Nehra, OUT, and another wicket for Narine, Nehra goes for the midwicket swipe favoured by tailenders, he can't get it far enough, and Delhi have lost nine

A Nehra c Shukla b Narine 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 128/9   S Nadeem 4* (7b)   SP Narine 3.5-0-13-4

Narine to Nadeem, OUT, Delhi are all out! the batsman goes for another heave, bottom edges it not too far from the stumps, and there's some confused running, easy run-out at the non-striker's end

S Nadeem run out 4 (13m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Delhi Daredevils 128/10   UT Yadav 0* (0b)   SP Narine 4-0-13-4
