Commentary

That's that then from me, thank you for all your comments and feedback! Will be back tomorrow for the Hyderabad v Punjab game, ciao and have a very good night (or day!)

**************

Presentation

Mahela Jayawardene: Couple of days now, keep it simple, let players think of what went wrong. No shouting or anger from me, I am diplomatic, I will keep it that way. Hard to explain, everyone has to lift their game and create situations from where we can win matches. We have had enough chats and the boys are professional enough to realise what's expected out of them.

MS Dhoni: 170 was not on the cards, wasn't that kind of a wicket, Hussey got off to a start and it was important to capitalise. Look at the number of overs to decide who bats where, we also look at the bowlers and their overs remaining. You got to used to the pace of the wicket, did not think it was a fast wicket, at Chennai it's difficult to hit it so important to give yourself a few deliveries. We have lost a few games but it's good to get the perfect combination by the end. Quite a few came in the yellow tees and got a lot of support and fans help you when you are not going through a great time.

Michael Hussey, man of the match: I think opening's a very good place to bat, enjoying batting here. I don't think we have a clear defined role for me, it's about assessing the pitch quickly and along with the others, try and get going. Good to receive the sixes award too.

Joel Muthuraj: "Wait....Bravo gets Rs.1 lakh for his dance moves??? Damn, why did I chose to be a software engineer???!!!!"

HillSideMoon: "With 6 out of 6 gone, DD will have more important role to play with in IPL6. Thats to detain any of the team from play-off when it is necessary for that team to win."

Subramanian Venkatraman: "It is something unique in world sports events that foreign players get such standing ovation from the locals even when their own players are put down without any mercy!"

vishal: "Its time IPL should have multiple leagues, so that teams can be relegated"

**************

Lowest score in IPL 2013, 83 all out beats 92 all out that happened last night. I hope we have something better tomorrow.

Michael Hussey batted through the innings to lay a good foundation and in the process was helped by first Suresh Raina and then MS Dhoni. Dhoni's was a whirlwind of an innings that saw Chennai pushed to 169 in their 20 overs.

Mohit Sharma then picked up three early wickets to peg the Daredevils back and from then on there was no looking back. The middle-order offered no resistance bar Kedar Jadhav and there was a capitulation. Six losses in a row for Delhi. Either they turn things around miraculously or they run the risk of finishing at the bottom. 10 more games remain for Delhi and stranger things have happened in this sport.

Bravo to Yadav, OUT, hits it straight to the fielder at long-on to end what has been a depressing innings to watch. it was fuller, was slower too and he tries to repeat what his top-order did, hit over the fielder but much like the top-order, the ball goes straight to the fielder

Bravo to Yadav, no run, very full this time but the flick shot does not come off from Yadav, gets hit on his pads

Bravo to Yadav, no run, slower one from round the stumps and that's defended off the back foot, back to the bowler

Morkel to Nadeem, no run, it is on a length and on the off stump, he punches it on the rise but it does not go away too far
