wicked Nannes ends with a bouncer, Trivedi sways out of the way without incident. Easy win for Delhi
So a professional performance from Delhi keeps them in line for the top spot. It also was the first one-sided after a long while. Good to have you read this. Okay bye.
Warne: Probably they got 15 too many. We dropped our catches, but that's the way it goes. Had we got a good start, it still could have been a par score. [On Munaf's last over that went for 25] Well Munaf has been pretty special, he was sensational in that last over against Mumbai, and this can happen to anyone in twenty20
Sehwag: Pretty happy with the performance. The batting didn't click, still AB and Dilshan carried on from their good form. I knew 150 is a good total here because we almost won against Punjab after scoring just 120. I haven't got any runs, so I can use the next two games. It is important for my team.
de Villiers, Man of the Match: My game plan was to get myself in the first 20 balls or so, and I scored freely after that. That's how I have played throughout this tournament.
Finally --- finally --- finally we get a one-sided game. Thanks to the last few overs of Delhi's innings and the first few of Rajasthan's. More seriously, Rajasthan are now on the brink. They will back themselves to beat the whipping boys of this tournament, Kolkata, but that might not be enough. Good thing is, their last game is three days down the line. And by the time they play that in Durban, they will have a fair idea of whether a win will do them any good. But they haven't been knocked out yet. Not mathematically at any rate.
that's the end of Munaf's fun, bouncer, backs away, looking to sway out, but the ball finds the bat and rolls along to third man
oh almost another boundary, short of a length, on the off stump, Munaf makes room, and slashes, looking to go over pint, but misses
tries a yorker, but it's a bit short, and Munaf makes room, and drives through extra. Three boundaries in a row for Munaf. Has he ever done that before?
Not long ago, though, Munaf gave away 25 in the 19th over
and Munaf gets four more, full and straight, same shot, Munaf makes room again, and it goes over point again. Munaf is having good fun
shot Munaf, round the wicket, short, and Munaf makes room and slashes it over point
Last over, Nannes will bowl, 28 to get. Not happening
slower ball, almighty slog from Trivedi, and needless to say he misses
back of a length again, Trivedi makes room, and is beaten by the extra bounce as he looks to run it down to third man
full, outside off, and Munaf crashes it through the off side, straight to Gambhir again, at sweeper-cover
makes room, and chips this over the infield on the off side, falls short of sweeper-cover
back of a length, Trivedi makes room, and hits to right of sweeper-cover for two
on the stumps, back of a length, chopped towards point
Nehra is back
and he has something to talk about, gets out of harm's way again, and looks to play with an open face, gets an inside edge to fine leg for four
lots of friendly banter going on between Munaf and his Delhi friends
shot Munaf, not bad at all for a No. 11, makes room, and guides it between gully and backward point. Good harmless fun
another short one, Munaf gets out of the harm's way, and then looks to run it down, but misses
full, on the stumps, and Trivedi makes room to get a single to sweeper-cover
another bouncer, Munaf makes room and looks to upper-cut, and gets a single to third man
fuller, on the stumps, and a single to third man
bouncer, too high, and Trivedi looks to upper-cut but misses
Nannes to look to finish matters
and third time lucky for Mishra, Warne steps out again, Mishra plays ball, flights it, and Warne looks to go straight, misses, and doesn't even make an attempt to go back in
