Morkel to de Villiers, FOUR, and what a poor loosener, angling down the leg, and deflected away fine, very fine, just to left of Dhoni, and easy four


Morkel to de Villiers, 1 run, superb running, full delivery played straiggt to mid-on, and they scramper through for one


Morkel to Dilshan, no run, full, on the off stump, and Dilshan looks to drive through the off side, but can't beat the cover ring


Morkel to Dilshan, FOUR, fulltoss, mistimed heave, beats midwicket, and deep square leg has no chance of stopping this


Morkel to Dilshan, FOUR, wrong line, with fine leg in the circle, on the pads, and flicked away to the left of the fielder, that was easy


Morkel to Dilshan, FOUR, three in a row, the best of the lot, full, on off, Dilshan clears the front leg, and drives it powerfully between mid-off and extra. Quick outfield, and Dilshan is enjoying it

Delhi Daredevils 46/2   JA Morkel 1-0-17-0

Morkel to Dilshan, no run, Morkel comes back, and beats Dilshan right away with a slower delivery, he is into the shot way too early


Morkel to Dilshan, no run, and a yorker to follow it up with, quick, seam-up, and Dilshan hits it straight into the ground and back to Morkel


Morkel to Dilshan, OUT, out to a fulltoss, it's on the stumps, maybe leg, and Dilshan looks to make room, but can't get enough room to get the elevation to clear Suresh Raina at extra cover. Some might say a lucky wicket, but the pressure from previous two dot balls worked. At any rate, what a little gem from Dilshan

TM Dilshan c Raina b Morkel 50 (27b 7x4 2x6) SR: 185.18

Delhi Daredevils 109/3   JA Morkel 3-0-27-1
