Lee to Gambhir, no run, slips in the bouncer, 142.1kmh, just outside off, has Gambhir fishing at it, doesn't get a nibble on it though, that nearly bounced twice before reaching the keeper


Lee to Gambhir, 1 run, back of a length ball on middle, nudged towards square leg by Gambhir who sets off for the single, Sehwag is late to react and would have been run out if there was a direct hit


Lee to Sehwag, FOUR, Sehwag starts with a bang, short and wide, rocks back and crunches it through the covers for a boundary, Sehwag's never been one for the "get-the-eye-in" theory


Lee to Sehwag, 1 leg bye, pushes up his length, on the legstump, Sehwag tried to glance it to fine leg, is hit on the pads, and the balls dribbles behind square leg


Lee to Gambhir, 1 run, Gambhir gets another quick single to retain the strike, it bounced a bit more than he expected, adjusted well to turn it to the leg side

Delhi Daredevils 7/0   B Lee 1-0-6-0

Lee to Sehwag, 1 wide, Lee will have to re-bowl that one, that was way down the leg side


Lee to Sehwag, no run, this time Lee sends down a slower bouncer, 123kmh, Sehwag waits for it and lashes it hard towards cover, placement was poor, so there's no run for the taking


Lee to Sehwag, 1 wide, another slower ball, much fuller this time, 107kmh, didn't get above ankle height, down the leg side though


Lee to Sehwag, FOUR, length ball outside off, Sehwag cracks it through the covers for a boundary, raises his front leg to balance himself as he plays that stroke


Lee to Sehwag, no run, similar length but closer to the stumps, Sehwag bunts it towards mid-off off the back foot


Lee to Sehwag, OUT, Lee strikes, the short ball works this time, it was quick and aimed at Sehwag's ribs, not his favourite area, Sehwag tries to play it towards backward square leg but gets a faint edge through to the keeper

V Sehwag c †Sangakkara b Lee 9 (8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50


Lee to Dilshan, no run, another quick bouncer, 144 kmh, Dilshan loves the pull and he goes for it first ball, hits him on the body as it rolls behind the stumps


Lee to Dilshan, no run, another fast bowler, Dilshan thinks of pulling but decides not to go for the shot, good over from Lee that

Delhi Daredevils 19/1   B Lee 2-0-12-1

Lee to Maharoof, no run, starts with a slow bouncer, Maharoof backs away and tries to slap it but doesn't connect


Lee to Maharoof, no run, another bouncer, this one is quick, 141 kmh, Maharoof had to get ouot of the way quickly


Lee to Maharoof, no run, yet another bouncer, this was 126kmh, Maharoof saw it and wanted to jab it over the keeper's head, but he doesn't get bat on ball again


Lee to Maharoof, no run, great over so far, Maharoof was giving himself room, so Lee sends it fast and full outside off, Maharoof bends his knees and swings at it but doesn't connect


Lee to Maharoof, no run, can Lee send down a maiden, Maharoof again moving towards leg, Lee pushes it wide outside off and the batsman can't reach it


Lee to Maharoof, OUT, stunning over from Lee, knocks out Maharoof's middle stump, a wicket-maiden at this stage is priceless, it was a length ball, Maharoof, as he has all over, was looking to give himself room to swing his arms, he misses Lee hits the stumps to end Maharoof's misery

MF Maharoof b Lee 3 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Delhi Daredevils 104/6   B Lee 3-1-12-2

Lee to Bhatia, OUT, Nelson and Lee strike again, Lee on a hat-trick, short and not particularly wide, sliced to the waiting fielder at third man, can Delhi at least play out their overs?

R Bhatia c Chawla b Lee 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Lee to Karthik, no run, no hat-trick for Lee, Karthik shows the full face of the bat as he defends back down the pitch


Lee to Karthik, 1 run, the slow bouncer has been Lee's favourite delivery today, this one was 123kmh, Karthik was looking to pull, had to delay his shot, he adjusts well to get it away to midwicket


Lee to Sangwan, no run, another short ball, fast and outside off, has Sangwan fishing for it outside off


Lee to Sangwan, 1 run, overpitched on offstump, driven firmly toward cover for a single to get off the strike and the mark
