Lee to Sehwag, OUT, Lee strikes, the short ball works this time, it was quick and aimed at Sehwag's ribs, not his favourite area, Sehwag tries to play it towards backward square leg but gets a faint edge through to the keeper

V Sehwag c †Sangakkara b Lee 9 (8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Delhi Daredevils 19/1   G Gambhir 7* (8b)   B Lee 1.4-0-12-1

Pathan to Gambhir, 1 run, OUT, superb throw and that's the end of Gambhir, the batsman chopped that towards deep backward point, and rushed back for the second, Wilkin Mota latches onto the ball and fires it in right over the stumps, Sangakkara collects and breaks the stumps, that's another massive wicket for Punjab

G Gambhir run out 8 (11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

Delhi Daredevils 20/2   TM Dilshan 0* (2b)   IK Pathan 1.3-0-7-0

Sreesanth to de Villiers, OUT, Sreesanth strikes, not the greatest of deliveries but he won't be complaining, that was short and sat up to be hit, de Villiers could have hit it anywhere on the leg side, he manages to pick out the man at mid-on with a powerful pull though, and Delhi are in a bit of trouble here

AB de Villiers c Yuvraj Singh b Sreesanth 11 (11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Delhi Daredevils 46/3   TM Dilshan 8* (14b 1x4)   S Sreesanth 1.2-0-12-1

Sreesanth to Dilshan, OUT, Sreesanth gets another big wicket, a better ball than the one that got de Villiers, length ball on off, Dilshan wanted to chip it over mid-on, Yuvraj's the fielder there and he latches on to it over his head

TM Dilshan c Yuvraj Singh b Sreesanth 10 (19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

Delhi Daredevils 51/4   M Manhas 3* (6b)   S Sreesanth 2.1-0-14-2

Mota to Manhas, OUT, there's the breakthrough, Manhas is gone, that was a full ball on middle, Manhas looked to swing it over to deep midwicket but didn't get the elevation he wanted and finds the midwicket fielder in the circle

M Manhas c Sohal b Mota 26 (25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 104.00

Delhi Daredevils 101/5   KD Karthik 23* (20b 1x6)   WA Mota 0.4-0-3-1

Lee to Maharoof, OUT, stunning over from Lee, knocks out Maharoof's middle stump, a wicket-maiden at this stage is priceless, it was a length ball, Maharoof, as he has all over, was looking to give himself room to swing his arms, he misses Lee hits the stumps to end Maharoof's misery

MF Maharoof b Lee 3 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Delhi Daredevils 104/6   KD Karthik 23* (20b 1x6)   B Lee 3-1-12-2

Pathan to Vettori, OUT, Delhi lose another wicket, that was short and just outside off, Vettori goes for the pull, top-edges it to mid-off, David Shepherd would have been hopping before this delivery

DL Vettori c Sohal b Pathan 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Delhi Daredevils 111/7   KD Karthik 29* (24b 1x6)   IK Pathan 3-0-16-1

Lee to Bhatia, OUT, Nelson and Lee strike again, Lee on a hat-trick, short and not particularly wide, sliced to the waiting fielder at third man, can Delhi at least play out their overs?

R Bhatia c Chawla b Lee 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 111/8   KD Karthik 29* (24b 1x6)   B Lee 3.1-1-12-3

Pathan to Karthik, OUT, Karthik is gone, it was a length ball, Karthik was looking to get under it and play over the cover, hits the bottom of the bat and flies towards long-on, who takes a simple catch

KD Karthik c Mota b Pathan 32 (29b 0x4 1x6) SR: 110.34

Delhi Daredevils 116/9   PJ Sangwan 2* (3b)   IK Pathan 3.3-0-18-2
