Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 7 Runs 1 Wkt | KXIP: 202/6

  • AM Nayar17 (13b)
  • RJ Harris1 (1b)
  • AB Agarkar4-0-47-2
  • VR Aaron4-0-36-1

Varun Aaron talks to Harsha Bhogle: "I had fun, it was good to win. There wasn't any pressure to bowl quick, I have been bowling quick since I was small, and I want to continue bowling quick."

Aakash: "Ajit Agarkar is the highest Wicket Taker of the match. Take that haters." As usual, the wickets and runs column are both high for Ajit.

Here's the latest points table.

August: "@Harish K, the problem is, Agarkar gives away 15 even when the required rate is 10 :)"

Ryan: "Marsh always conveniently gets injured just as he cements his place in the Australian team."

More support for Marsh. Boris writes in from Australia (how early in the morning is it there?) : "@Bryn- Couldn't agree more. Rather than using hyped players like Hughes and Smith who just don't perform, guys like Marsh and Warner deserve the chances to do well."

Presentation ceremony
First up Adam Gilchrist: "Exciting day for the crowd, it was a belter, and there were short boundaries. Two or three little things we did wrong, and this is where Delhi hurts us."

Virender Sehwag, unsurprisingly, gets a massive cheer: "It was good to bat on, the ball comes nicely on to the bat. It is hard on the bowlers, Twnety20 is like that. We have plenty of good fast bowlers, and we can rotate them, and play well at home. Aaron is exceptional, he's bowls good yorkers too."

David Warner is the Man of the Match: "It was a good wicket, similar as home. You back yourself hit the distance, I have had to learn my game a bit in the IPL."

That's it from us from the IPL today. If you haven't had your fix of cricket yet, hop over to the WI v Pak match, where Sriram Veera will entertain you with some midnight ramblings.

And lastly, Agarkar as usual defied all predictions, none of the truckloads published today got it right.

Thanks all for tuning in, and the many mails. See you at tomorrow's game.

Agarkar to Nayar, 1 leg bye, Nayar was backing away, Ajit chases him with a full ball outside leg, edged towards point, and that's victory for Delhi, they take this one by 29 runs, 433 runs in this match, the mind reels

Ajit to close this one out
