Delhi Daredevils 27/2   AB de Villiers 2* (4b)

Sreesanth to de Villiers, FOUR, well this is turning out to be a poor over so far, on a length, on middle and leg, de Villiers whips it gracefully off his pads for four to square leg, 1000th boundary of the IPL


Sreesanth to de Villiers, no run, that was better from Sreesanth, jagged back sharply after pitching just outside off, hit de Villiers high on the pads, a bit of an appeal from Sreesanth but that was going over


Sreesanth to de Villiers, 1 wide, very wide outside off, and that's another free run

Powar to de Villiers, 2 runs, lovely shot from de Villiers, that was flighted and overpitched, de Villiers chipped it to midwicket, Lee has some ground to cover before fielding, he rifles the throw in that hit de Villiers after he makes his ground


Powar to de Villiers, 2 runs, another couple to midwicket for de Villiers, good running from the batsmen


Powar to de Villiers, 1 run, down the leg side, de Villiers looks to sweep, doesn't quite get hold of it, gets it away fine down the leg though

Delhi Daredevils 44/2   AB de Villiers 11* (10b 1x4)

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   AB de Villiers 11 (11b 1x4)
