Delhi have arrested the slide finally, after three straight defeats, and they have done it by beating, probably the best team in the fray. There was little doubt over which team was better today though. Warner came out firing on all guns and gave them the momentum to overcome a middle overs wobble and Kedar Jadhav played a blinder in the end to take them home.

Bangalore's chase got off to a good start, though they could not get off to a flier. Amit Mishra and Umesh Yadav bowled really well to stifle the runs and strike crucial blows. Bangalore's running left a lot to be desired.

Venki: "Umesh Yadav seems to be an interesting prospect for developing into a genuine fast bowler. He is consistantly nearing 90 MPH. If he is trained well he can be a future Indian prospect." Well, we've seen India's pace prospects mysteriously losing their pace once they break into the main-stream, so fingers crossed on that one.

Hang on for the presentation.

Kumble: "Credit to Delhi, we did well to restrict them to 180. We had a good start, but a couple of run outs, and some bad shot selection cost us the game. No regrets with our decision at the toss, the wicket was slow.. It was one of those days for us."

Dinesk Karthik: " The team is very happy with the way things went. Warner batted bautifully, it is a blessing to have him, we are very happy with his batting. (On the run outs) When you have fielders like AB de Villiers, such things can happen."

Man of the match - On debut, it is Kedar Jadhav "I was pretty confident about my batting, I knew I could do well if I got in. You have to ask our trainer (for my secret ability to hit the ball long!)."

On that happy note, this is Nitin Sundar signing off on behalf of the Cricinfo team. Do log in for the next match, Chennai v Mumbai, the big news is that Dhoni is back. See you all!

McDonald to Kumble, 1 run, and it's all ova! Kumble can't do much with that short of a length ball outside off and gets it away to cover for a single. Bangalore have fallen well short today.

Great work from Delhi today in the field. They have stifled Bangalore right through.
