Sreesanth to Dilshan, no run, starts with a back of length ball, Dilshan goes for his favourite pull again, but is beaten by the bounce


Sreesanth to Dilshan, FOUR, shoddy work from Lee at third man, slapped down towards him by Dilshan, and that should only have been a single, Lee makes a mess of it in the deep, Sreesanth doesn't need this


Sreesanth to Dilshan, 1 wide, short and very wide, Dilshan chases it but doesn't reach it


Sreesanth to Dilshan, 1 run, shortish and again a bit of width, Dilshan reaches out and guides it towards third man, Lee collects cleanly this time


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


Sreesanth to de Villiers, no run, a closer lbw call this time, pitching on a length, just outside off, de Villiers was looking to defend on the front foot but was rapped on the pads

Delhi Daredevils 38/2   S Sreesanth 1-0-11-0

Sreesanth to Dilshan, 1 run, good start to this Sreesanth over, length ball angling into leg stump, Dilshan pushes it towards mid-on


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


Sreesanth to Manhas, no run, Mithun Manhas defends his first ball cautiously off the front foot


Sreesanth to Manhas, no run, a slow bouncer from Sreesanth, 127kmh, just outside off, this time Manahs shows us his backfoot defence


Sreesanth to Manhas, no run, very good from Sreesanth, bowling from a bit wide of the crease and angling it in, pitched on a length outside off and was heading for middle, Manhas prods it towards the covers


Sreesanth to Manhas, 2 runs, short and wide from Sreesanth, chopped into the ground and over point by Manhas, Lee raced around to cut that off at the boundary, the sweeper Chawla was rushing in from the other side and nearly collided with Lee, just jumping over a sliding Lee at the last instant

Delhi Daredevils 48/3   S Sreesanth 2-0-14-1

Sreesanth to Dilshan, OUT, Sreesanth gets another big wicket, a better ball than the one that got de Villiers, length ball on off, Dilshan wanted to chip it over mid-on, Yuvraj's the fielder there and he latches on to it over his head

TM Dilshan c Yuvraj Singh b Sreesanth 10 (19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.63


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


Sreesanth to Manhas, no run, end of an accurate over from Sreesanth, length ball in the corridor, Manhas defends off the front foot, and that's the strategic time-out

Delhi Daredevils 52/4   S Sreesanth 3-0-15-2

Sreesanth to Manhas, 1 run, shortish and on middle stump, turned to midwicket


Sreesanth to Karthik, no run, back of a length outside off, Karthik opened the face to guide it to third man but doesn't connect


Sreesanth to Karthik, no run, fuller and on middle and leg, dug out inside out towards extra cover, another dot ball


Sreesanth to Karthik, 2 runs, fullish on offstump, played with soft hands towards cover, rush through for a single, a direct hit from Chawla gives away an extra run


Sreesanth to Karthik, 1 run, a touch wide outside off, opens the face and bunts it towards point for a single


Sreesanth to Manhas, 1 run, short of a length, a bit of width for Manhas, he throws his bat at it and gets a thick outside edge through to third man for a single

Delhi Daredevils 67/4   S Sreesanth 4-0-20-2
