Indian Premier League - 9th match

Chennai Super Kings v Delhi Daredevils

Delhi Daredevils won by 9 runs

0.1

Balaji to Gambhir, OUT, And Bala has struck first ball. It looked like a harmless leave. Gambhir walked a couple of steps down, and while shouldering arms he could have got en edge to it. Not clear from replays so far. It moved in a bit, and brushed the glove on the way. What a start for Chennai

G Gambhir c †Dhoni b Balaji 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Delhi Daredevils 0/1   V Sehwag 0* (0b)   L Balaji 0.1-0-0-1

1.6

Gony to Sehwag, OUT, the was coming all along, Sehwag has not at all looked good today, and here he puiills a delivery that is too full, and he top-edges it this time, lobbing it to Morkel at mid-on. So the underdogs of this openeing battle, Bala and Gony, have struck once each. Sehwag and Gambhir gone

V Sehwag c Morkel b Gony 6 (9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Delhi Daredevils 8/2   AB de Villiers 2* (2b)   MS Gony 1-0-6-1

8.3

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 76/3   AB de Villiers 20* (14b 1x4 1x6)   JA Morkel 1.3-0-17-1

13.6

Balaji to Karthik, OUT, and he gets his Ranji captain, luckily, though, this was a poor delivery, full and on the pads, Karthik connected but couldn't get enough power. And what a cool catch from Flintoff yards inside the square-leg fence, he moved to his right, and just about got his fingers under it

KD Karthik c Flintoff b Balaji 18 (16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Delhi Daredevils 114/4   AB de Villiers 39* (31b 1x4 1x6)   L Balaji 3-0-13-2

19.5

Balaji to Tiwary, OUT, and Bala gets Tiwary with a slower one this time, scratchy innings this has been. Under 100ks, and Tiwary gets more height and less distance in his flick and holes out to Flintoff at square-leg fence

MK Tiwary c Flintoff b Balaji 9 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Delhi Daredevils 188/5   AB de Villiers 104* (53b 5x4 6x6)   L Balaji 3.5-0-18-3
