short on middle, defended off the back foot to cover
A comprehensive win for Australia's Twenty20 champions. 145 was a competitive target but more was expected from the Eagles, who struggled from the outset in their chase. Only two Eagles batsmen reached double-figures, with Ryan McLaren top scoring with 40. No doubt it wasn't the best track to bat on, but just a cursory glance at the scorecard will indicate how bleak the surrender was.
We apologise again for the loss of commentary. Blame it on technology!
The presentation is about to begin. Bipasha Basu makes a special appearance.
Dippenaar: "I thought we bowled well at stages. We still have a good chance of making the next ground so it's important we learn quickly. We'll come back strongly on Tuesday."
Katich is also the Man of the Match for his 53 and two direct hits: "Our bowlers did a great job in the first six overs. Clark did a fantastic job, Lee upfront was magnificent."
7.15pm: Part 2 of the double header coming up very shortly between Delhi Daredevils and Victoria Bushrangers. The toss should happen in 15 minutes. Thanks for your company. Cheers guys.
