Hopes finishes it off with a sliced drive over backward point! Good for the tournament that Delhi have pocketed their first win. Yuvraj shakes hands with Sehwag and pats him on the back with a smile
Abhi::"IPL Warning :: Don't score above 185 while batting first"
Sehwag: "It's a happy moment for us; finally we have a win. Yuvraj bowled and batted really well; I was hoping he wont bowl the over he did and take Finch out but he did! We knew this ground is smaller and you can hit sixes here. We thought the wicket would help the fast bowlers and so we played four fast bowlers. James Hopes did well. Venu gopal Rao was brilliant."
Yuvraj Singh is the Man of the Match: "You have to give it to Delhi; they played really well under pressure. We didnt take wickets in the first six and didnt bowl well in the end. Venugopal Rao batted really well in the end after Sehwag and Warner gave good start. I was thinking spinners in the end yes but in the end your main bowlers have to bowl well. You have to give them confidence."
That's it from us. Ta
