Right, that wraps up game 33. I don't need to remind you to tune in at 1600 IST for Warne v Tendulkar. And then we have Pune v Bangalore in the evening. Until then, this is Nitin Sundar signing off. Cheers!

Presentation time:

Tiwary is Man of the Match "Thanks to the bat sponsors (what a smart plug!), thanks to them I am connecting my shots. I tried to stay till the end, and the others played around me, things worked well for me today. (As he speaks, the team owner pounces on him from behind and hugs him...). Hope to continue my contributions."

Gambhir: "The guys showed a lot of desperation, we all wanted to win desperately ... I never expected so much spin on such a grassy wicket. Everyone contributed in his own way, and if you manage to defend a score of 148 it gives the team a lot of confidence. Our bowlers showed what they are made of. My heart and soul is with KKR, I am not a Delhi boy anymore (big cheers before he says that, not so big after.)"

Sehwag: "We had enough batsmen, but no one took the responsibility to finish the job for the team. I said 150-160 is easily chasable, but KKR bowled well."

Mayank: "Atleast Agarkar did better than a first ball duck.." Leave that man alone I say!

Akhilesh: "Long Long ago.. Agarkar used to be an Allrounder"

Jigar: "A message to IPL teams from Lee: You run me out, I run two of yours out!"

Brett Lee describes Iqbal Abdulla's first ball thus: "It was like Warne to Gatting, wasn't it?" Haha!

Balaji to Yadav, 1 run, Delhi have lost five games. Not good for them. Yadav drives the last ball to mid-off for a single. Not close to enough. The Kotla bustles without the kind of energy that was there earlier in the day. Finally, Gambhir has a half-smile.
19.5
W
Balaji to Nagar, OUT, Nagar is gone now, he's not timed the pull to another slower bouncer, he looked to swat it from well outside off, and ended up popping it to the keeper.

Gambhir is jumping around, exhorting his troops and looking very pensive. He can relax now, this game is in the bag.

Balaji to Morkel, 1 run, Morne gets a single, not enough. Full and straight, played without timing past mid-off for a single.
19.3
0
Balaji to Morkel, no run, Bala wisely keeps it as wide outside off as possible. Morne backs away, and despite his height he can't reach this.
19.2

Balaji to Morkel, FOUR runs, lucky, Morne squeezes a low full toss outside off down to third man. He just flailed at it wildly, and it ran away to the fence.
19.1
0
Balaji to Morkel, no run, dot ball to start off, Morkel misses a slower ball that comes in IPL 2012. Swing and a miss.

Bala for the last over.
