Sreesanth to Karthik, no run, back of a length on middle, looks to defend off the back foot, the ball drops dead at the batsman's feet, wonder whether to go for the single before deciding against it


Sreesanth to Karthik, no run, a bit of width for Karthik to work with, he opens the face and pushes the ball towards point, no run again


Sreesanth to Karthik, no run, lovely delivery from Sreesanth, the outswinger that made him famous beats Karthik, who was feeling for it outside off


Sreesanth to Karthik, 1 run, back of the hand slower ball, 92kmh, probably too slow, giving the batsmen time to adjust, turned towards mid-on

Powar to Karthik, 1 run, given some air, overpitched on leg, turned towards the leg side

Delhi Daredevils 53/4   KD Karthik 2* (5b)

Yuvraj Singh to Karthik, 2 runs, full ball is punched wide of long-on, wide enough to give the batsmen time to get two, Karthik was racing through for the second which meant the fielder had to throw to the wicketkeeper if there was to be any chance of a run-out, 14 off the over

Delhi Daredevils 97/4   KD Karthik 20* (18b 1x6)

Mota to Karthik, 2 runs, very short and down the leg side, swung away to deep backward square leg, not enough power on that to take it for four
