    1.2 Dilshan is cleaned up, bowled by a ball that stayed low after pitching back of a length, Dilshan was looking to play that off the backfoot, he misses and the ball crashes into middle and off 1/1
    1.4 what an over from Klenveldt, Gambhir bottom-edges the ball from just outside off onto middle, Delhi are in deep trouble here with their two best batsmen out 4/2
    8.5 the arm-ball does the job, it was slightly quicker as well, Tiwary was looking for the sweep, he misses, the ball strikes offstump 44/3
    9.4 If Owais Shah is around, can terrible running be far behind? Karthik is gone after a massive miscommunication, it was a slower ball on the pads, Shah wrists it towards midwicket, Puttick dives to his right to stop it, no single in that, he sets off, Karthik had stopped but Shah continues to sprint, both batsmen are virtually at the same end as the keeper whips off the bails 46/4
    not out
    16.2 Delhi's hunt for a boundary remains elusive, Nagar goes for a powerful sweep, the ball lobs to short fine leg, and that's the end of Nagar 80/5
    16.5 Bhatia is cleaned up, looking for the off-drive, is tricked by the turn Ontong got, the ball sneaks between bat and pad 87/6

    3.6 Nannes is on fire here, another quick delivery, 146kmh, 91mph, much too quick for Puttick who is well back in the crease, the ball keeps low and he sees his offstump uprooted 17/2
    0.2 Gibbs goes first ball! Short of a good length outside off, turns in sharply, gets across to work it into the leg side, is rapped on the pads and the umpire Dharmasena takes his time and raises his finger, was he struck outside the line? We need a replay 1/1
    8.2 plays the ball late again, Duminy opens the face to get it towards backward point point., great throw from Sangwan catches Davids inches short 44/3
    10.6 gone, Duminy is out, Delhi probably have the upper hand now, big turn gain for Mishra, comes in after pitching outside off, Duminy misses as he looks to poke at the ball, it sneaks though between bat and pad, and he's bowled 57/5
    10.4 Kleinveldt is gone, a tossed up delivery well outside off, Kleinveldt belts it down sweeper cover's throat 57/4
    14.3 Dilshan gets the wicket, Ontong is bowled, Delhi definitely have the edge now, looks to loft the ball towards the long-on, it goes through the gap between bat and pad 72/6
    18.3 game over, Delhi have won, Cobras have been bowled out for 84, it was a short ball, the batsman swung it towards deep midwicket, Dilshan jumps at takes the catch just inside the rope, the umpire ask for the replay which shows he never touched the boundary, so Cobras lose 84/10
    15.5 Nannes does what he was brought back for, a back of length ball cannons into the bails, Canning has to go, Cobras collapsing here 78/7
    15.6 Henderson has a short stay at the crease, he had to keep out only one ball from Nannes, wasn't up to the task, it was fast and full, barrels into offstump 78/8
    16.2 Cobras lurch towards defeat, a short ball is slapped straight to midwicket, Zondeki also goes for a first-baller 79/9
