Pepsi Indian Premier League, 23rd match: Delhi Daredevils v Rajasthan Royals at Delhi, May 3, 2014
Rajasthan Royals won by 7 wickets
3 May 2014 - night match (20-over match)
4.1

Faulkner to Vijay, OUT, and produces magic straight away. Vijay looks to force the pace off a back of a good length delivery and has spooned a catch to mid-off. Would have done better to punch off the back foot, but Vijay is most comfortable pressing forward. Went through with the shot and the bat face turned on impact. Ends up a simple catch after Watson called mine

M Vijay c Watson b Faulkner 13 (20m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 118.18

Delhi Daredevils 33/1   Q de Kock 20* (14b 2x4 1x6)   JP Faulkner 0.1-0-0-1
9.3

Tambe to Pietersen, OUT, picks out long-on! This skewed off the inside half of the bat and it's Steven Smith down there. You know the rest of it. Tossed up and he looked to take it on. His timing fails him and this time the umps don't bother about the front-foot no-ball check

KP Pietersen c Smith b Tambe 14 (23m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 93.33

Delhi Daredevils 69/2   Q de Kock 42* (31b 5x4 1x6)   PV Tambe 2.3-0-19-1
9.6

Tambe to de Kock, OUT, another one, Tambe, you legend! Looped it on off stump and De Kock could not resist. Went for a drive against the turn and the ball pitched just before his flaying blade, took the inside half of it and sat safely in the hands of the bowler himself. Tambe was pushed to the floor while taking the catch, but he had it under control

Q de Kock c & b Tambe 42 (48m 33b 5x4 1x6) SR: 127.27

Delhi Daredevils 71/3   KD Karthik 1* (1b)   PV Tambe 3-0-20-2
15.2

Faulkner to Karthik, OUT, holes out at deep square leg! Another crucial wicket at a crucial time for Royals. Dug in short and he chose to take it on. Hit high on the bat as he looked to pull. The man in the deep hardly had to move

KD Karthik c Binny b Faulkner 12 (28m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Delhi Daredevils 95/4   JP Duminy 11* (17b)   JP Faulkner 2.2-0-7-2
19.3

Richardson to Duminy, OUT, what a catch! Bhatia has picked up a sensational catch while skirting the long leg boundary! This was full and on leg stump and again sat up for Duminy to swing away. The fielder had to run to his right, had his eyes on it all the way and pouched it. But then he made sure he kept his balance. Faulkner was right beside him just in case he couldn't and needed assistance

JP Duminy c Bhatia b Richardson 39 (45m 31b 4x4 1x6) SR: 125.80

Delhi Daredevils 141/5   KM Jadhav 17* (11b 1x4 1x6)   KW Richardson 3.3-0-28-1
