Innings break The Royals scrape together 9 for 115 after choosing to bat first. Riyan Parag held the innings together with an excellent half-century. He showed great maturity in becoming the youngest man to reach 50 in an IPL game. Ishant and Mishra took three wickets each to decimate the Royals. Ishant says "We have spoken about Net Run Rate but it's important to just go out and win the game first and worry about that later."

Gaurav Sundararaman: "If DC win this in 10 overs they will go past CSK. DC need to look at this like a 10 over game. Even if they lose it does not matter. To have a chance at top 2 they have to win in 10 overs. If they do CSK has to win tomorrow to finish top 2."

That's the task for Delhi. But this pitch is slow and tough to score on.

Elsewhere, India's popular Pro Kabaddi League will have to face some competition from May 13 onwards. But will the newly launched Indo International Premier Kabaddi League click with the fans?

Boult to Parag, OUT, caught at long off! He didn't get the distance this time. He got under it trying to launch over long off but skied it high to Rutherford who stood under it and held the catch well.
