Commentary

Presentation time George Bailey: "The way Awana and Mitchie bowled, that set the tone. We'll go back to basics now. It doesn't matter what order you finish. Everyone starts from zero come finals time."

Bailey also asked what a bowler has to do to win Man of the Match, and, well, bowling Delhi out for 115 isn't the answer to his question. Manan Vohra is the Man of the Match

"It's my home ground, so it's always fun to bat out there," Vohra says. "I guess the management had a better plan for me. I was just waiting for my turn. I knew when I get a chance I could do something special. Players like Maxwell, David Miller, George, Viru pa. They're strokeplayers, and it gives me the freedom to go after the bowling."

That's it from us for this game. Pop over here for our live commentary from the Mumbai-Rajasthan game, which will begin very very soon. Thanks for tuning in, and for posting your comments.

ramu: "2 overs for Unadakat. KP, are you kidding me? 2-0-3-1"

Viru is beaming as he comes out to shake hands with his former teammates. Daredevils might wonder if they were better off with their bespectacled basher on their side. But then, they didn't do particularly well last season either.

It's been a crushing defeat for Daredevils in their last match of the season. Ninth straight defeat for them, and they've lost all nine matches they've played in India this season. Lots of soul-searching to do, because you'd think, looking through their squad, that they have too many good players to perform this poorly.

Kevin Pietersen apologises to Delhi's fans He says they batted poorly, and shouldn't have posted such a low total on this pitch. He then sums up the season: "It's been an enjoyable experience, but on the field there's been a lot of not-so-good stuff."

Imran Tahir to Miller, SIX runs, That's the winning hit, and it's an emphatic winning hit. It's tossed up on the stumps, and Miller's slog-swept that out of the planet.

Imran Tahir to Miller, no run, short, turns in from outside off, and Miller slaps it straight to cover

KP (I assume it's the same one): "Who is ahead on D/L?"

Imran Tahir to Bailey, 1 run, Bailey is down the pitch to this, and he flicks it to deep midwicket from outside off

avi: "Even GOD is crying watching this performance of Delhi Daredevils..."

What a time for a rain interruption. They only needed four runs! Oh, wait. They've come back on. Bailey is in.

Imran Tahir to Vohra, OUT, got him! Pitches wide outside off and the googly spins back viciously to knock back off stump as Vohra misses the cut. The rain starts coming down concurrently, quite heavily, and the players go off the field

Imran Tahir to Miller, 1 run, short, turns in from outside off, punched towards cover

Gaurav Manchand: "Duminy has been DD's most economical in this season." Yes, he is, if you discount Coulter-Nile, who only bowled four overs before getting injured. Tells you all you need to know about Delhi's season

END OF OVER:
