END OF OVER:
20 | 6 Runs | Wayam: 120/7

Delhi beat Wayamba by 50 runs. It was a comprehensive win, with Sehwag, Karthik, McGrath and Nannes taking the lead honours. Wayamba leaked too many and their chase never got off. Nannes and McGrath choked runs. It was good to see McGrath get a game after a long time and do so well. Delhi live on.

"Last time I had a match bowl was in the semi-final of the IPL last year," says McGrath. "I had not done any bowling or training until I arrived here, so I cannot complain. The boys bowled well. I could always land the ball pretty well but I was never quick. I'd rather be able to bowl fast too!" What a legend. Good man.

Do stay with us for the post-match presentation.

First up to speak to Ian Bishop is the Man of the Match, Sehwag: "I think I batted really well because the wicket was staying low. Its very difficult for a stroke player but they bowled a lot of loose balls. Wherever I tried to hit fours and sixes I found it."

Mubarak: "We didn't turn up today, did we? We gave about 50 too many and we've left ourselves with a lot to do on Tuesday. A lot of their runs came in boundaries and especially on a pitch like this we didn't take the right options at the right moments. We have to learn from them and show everybody what we are capable of."

Gambhir: "We didn't play well in the first game. Playing here before Wayamba was a big advantage. Sehwag makes my job pretty easy and it was great to see him hit the ball like that today. Nannes has been bowling well. He has some pace which is useful at the start and at the end and he reverses the ball. Karthik really set up the game for us with the bat."

So folks, that is all we have for you tonight. Do come back and see us tomorrow for a Bangalore double-header. Somerset play Trinidad & Tobago and then Bangalore take on Otago. Good bye!
