Champions League Twenty20 - 7th match, Group D

Delhi Daredevils v Wayamba

Delhi Daredevils won by 50 runs

20.00 Dilshan and Sehwag pump fists and walk out and the Delhi fans go wild. Welegedara to bowl. No slips in place. Plenty of room in frond of cover. Some issues in the field so we're delayed a bit.

19.55 Five minutes to go. The umpires, Billy Doctrove and Sanjay Hazare, walk out. The teams walk out and the crowd cheers. Players line up for the pre-match formality ritual, handshakes, kids and all. How cute. Now they all go off and we can get the cricket started. Wayamba have a huddle.

19.30 Its time for the toss. Gautam Gambhir and Jehan Mubarak are with Pommie Mbangwa. "We know what to expect from this track so its a positive for us," says Gambhir. "It looks low and slow and turns a bit, so we need to put up a good score and defend it," says Mubarak. This is all before the toss. Now the coin is flipped and Gambhir opts to bat, cuing a loud cheer from the crowd. Gambhir is happy with 130-140. Delhi have called in Glenn McGrath for Pradeep Sangwan and Manoj Tiwary for the injured Mithun Manhas. A couple big changes there, especially McGrath. Its been a while since he played.

Kumar Sangakkara singles out Michael Vandort as the man Wayamba will bat around. Their bowling includes Ajantha Mendis, Farveez Maharoof, Isuru Udana and Kaushal Lokuarachchi.

19.15 A very warm welcome to you wherever you may be. Game two from the Feroz Shah Kotla is coming up soon and its a crucial one for the hosts Delhi Daredevils. They need to win to stay alive in the tournament and it won't be easy against Wayamba, Sri Lanka's domestic Twenty20 champions. This is Wayamba's first game here in India and they have 11 players with international experience. Here's hoping for a good game. I'm Jamie, your commentator, and Raghav will be on scoring.

0.1

Welegedara to Dilshan, no run, starts off very full and gets some swing, Dilshan punches to cover

0.2

Welegedara to Dilshan, no run, comes onto the front foot and clobbers the ball to mid-off

0.3

Welegedara to Dilshan, no run, change of pace and angles, serves it up on a length and wider this time and Dilshan flashes and misses

0.4

Welegedara to Dilshan, no run, full and straight, Dilshan pushes off the front foot to mid-off

Good stuff so far, not much room on offer, and a hint of swing.

0.5

Welegedara to Dilshan, no run, another swish and a miss from Dilshan, who flashes at one pitched up just outside off stump and goes away with the angle

0.6

Welegedara to Dilshan, no run, superb over, and a great ball! Welegedera fires in a yorker on middle and leg, Dilshan just manages to jam the bat down on ball and it stops dead in its tracks

It is not often you bowl a first over maiden to one of the most destructive batsman in this format.

End of over 1 (maiden) Delhi Daredevils 0/0 (RR: 0.00)
TM Dilshan    0* (6b)      UWMBCA Welegedara    1-1-0-0
V Sehwag    0* (0b)     

Another left-armer comes on, Isuru Udana.

1.1

Udana to Sehwag, FOUR, and he gets the treatment first ball, overpitching on off stump, and Sehwag drives that straight back for four, top shot

1.2

Udana to Sehwag, no run, well stopped at point! Sehwag sees width and cuts hard into the off side, and Kulatunga intercepts with a full dive to his right and then returns a very good throw

1.3

Udana to Sehwag, no run, again he gets up and flashes at wide ball, this time getting an under edge and chopping the ball to the off side

1.4

Udana to Sehwag, 1 run, slower ball, wider length, Sehwag dabs the ball to third man

Still a bit of uneven bounce. The last ball stayed a bit low.

1.5

Udana to Dilshan, no run, full toss but Dilshan cannot put it away, instead just pats it back

1.6

Udana to Dilshan, no run, full on the stumps and Dilshan is early into his drive, and using too much bottom hand, so the ball turns away loosely to midwicket

Very impressive start from the two left-arm bowlers. Dilshan scoreless after eight balls.

End of over 2 (5 runs) Delhi Daredevils 5/0 (RR: 2.50)
TM Dilshan    0* (8b)      I Udana    1-0-5-0

2.6

Welegedara to Dilshan, no run, another yorker-length ball just outside off stump and this time Dilshan chops at it and gets beaten

That is another good over from Welegedera. Changes his pace, varies the length. Impressive.

TM Dilshan    1* (12b)      UWMBCA Welegedara    2-1-3-0
V Sehwag    7* (6b 1x4)      I Udana    1-0-5-0

3.1

Udana to Sehwag, 1 no ball, that is a good ball, nearly a yorker which Sehwag digs out, but he has overstepped so we have a free hit lined up

3.6

Udana to Sehwag, FOUR, shot, man! Full and wide and Sehwag opens the face, squeezing the ball between cover and point and third man has no chance, excellent placement

A few shots now from this pair ... the crowd loves it!

TM Dilshan c Mubarak b Welegedara 10 (16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

That ball was hit with power but Mubarak made it look easy. Came at him fast but he was too good.

4.3

Welegedara to Gambhir, 1 run, walks into his first ball, a full one, and pushes it down to mid-off, sets off immediately and Sehwag is slow to get off, Jayawardene collects and throws it down to the other end but Sehwag just makes it home

4.6

Welegedara to Sehwag, FOUR, dropped but that is a tough catch! Sehwag makes room and forces that one very hard to the off side, this time Mubarak dives from short cover to his left and gets fingertips to it but cannot hold on, the ball is hit so hard that it runs away to the ropes

End of over 5 (9 runs) Delhi Daredevils 32/1 (RR: 6.40)
V Sehwag    20* (14b 4x4)      UWMBCA Welegedara    3-1-12-1

5.6

Maharoof to Sehwag, FOUR, now Maharoof pitches full but its too straight so Sehwag just picks that off leg stump over midwicket, one bounce and four and the Kotla goes berserk

G Gambhir lbw b Mendis 3 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Aggressive shot, the length was short so the pull was on but Gambhir was beaten by the lack of bounce. Swung and missed. Mendis strikes early. Here's Karthik.

6.5

Mendis to Karthik, 1 run, turns back in and Karthik works a single

Up comes Delhi's 50 and the fans lap it up ...

18.5

Mendis to Karthik, 1 wide, OUT, stumped, and good work too! Mendis bowls it very, very wide as Karthik comes out and reaches for the ball, he then loses balance and falls over, de Zoysa collects, fumbles briefly, changes the ball from one hand to the other, and breaks the sticks

Welegedara to Shah, OUT, peach of a ball splays the stumps! Gem from Welegedera, aims for the yorker and tails the ball back in through the air from outside leg right into the base of the stumps

OA Shah b Welegedara 18 (10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 180.00

19.3

Welegedara to Bhatia, 2 runs, good ball, right up there, Bhatia toe-ends it into the gap between cover and point, the sweeper fumbles and Bhatia gets back for the second

19.4

Welegedara to Bhatia, 1 run, full on the toes, aiming for that yorker again, flicked out to the deep

19.5

Welegedara to Tiwary, 1 run, full again, just marginally outside the line to Tiwary who plays the paddle-scoop and just gets a faint bit of bat on ball, running it to short fine leg

19.6

Welegedara to Bhatia, 2 runs, full toss outside off and scooped down to long-off for two

Very good score put up by Delhi, owing plenty to Sehwag and Karthik. Wayamba were not very sharp after a good start and will have to chase a big score here. Glenn McGrath is doing push-ups and stretching, eager to get back to the bowling mark.
