Indian Premier League - 35th match

Delhi Daredevils v Mumbai Indians

Delhi Daredevils won by 7 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)

7.1

Bhatia to Nayar, no run, back of a length on the off, turned away to midwicket and calls for a single, would have been out had that hit, Pinal was sent back and was struggling to reach on his way back

7.3

Bhatia to Shah, no run, stump-to-stump, defended towards midwicket on the front foot

7.4

Bhatia to Shah, OUT, Pinal's gone, and like the last game against Deccan, he's thrown it away, full on middle and leg, made room and struck it straight to long-on, poor shot under the circumstances and whoever it was rooting for him, sorry bud

PR Shah c Mishra b Bhatia 11 (20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.00

12.1

Bhatia to Bravo, no run, slower ball, pitched right up, and Bravo pushes into the off side

12.3

Bhatia to Bravo, 1 bye, smart change-up delivery, much straighter and on a length and it beats the bat and the wicketkeeper, running down toward short fine leg

Bhatia to Nayar, 1 run, on middle and leg and worked down toward mid-on for one

12.5

Bhatia to Bravo, no run, gets across and clips a fullish ball straight to Gambhir at midwicket

AM Rahane c Sangwan b Bhatia 12 (12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

19.5
