player of the match
David Warner
Delhi Capitals

Easy win in the end after it looked at one stage that Delhi were in big trouble chasing their modest target, but a smart chase from Warner and Chand and some poor fielding from the Knight Riders gets them to the win.

Presentation quotes in a while.


We need to play better cricket. Stupid on my part to get run-out like that. We need to take up responsibility, cannot be 60/6 at any stage. Need to pull up our socks. Cannot play well as a unit. Not been consistent as a team. We need to take each game as it comes and think it's a do-or-die situation.


Handling situations much better than before, outstanding fielding and that makes a huge difference. Pushing ourselves and one game at a time. Guys working hard on our fielding and it's paying off. We need to look at one game at a time, cannot look too far ahead. This stadium is great and so is the crowd.

Warner gets the man of the match.

Lovely wicket, and love to bat here. For the team I can bat anywhere and while I like to open the innings, this is what my team wants from me and that's where I will bat.

Pathan to Rohrer, 1 run

and he laps it to fine-leg for a single, gets it away to notch up their third win!

Pathan to Rohrer, SIX runs

what a shot! he pulls it like it was an after-thought, it was a short alright but he does not go for it till very late, gets it off the middle and smack, goes for a six

Pathan to Warner, 1 run

on his pads and short enough to pull it away, he does exactly that and it runs away to deep square-leg for a single

Pathan to Warner, no run

quicker and angling in from round the stumps, tapped to the off side

Pathan to Rohrer, 3 runs

short from Pathan and easily played it through the backward point, they get an easy two and tell you what, they want to come back for the third and they do that!

So Lee gets Chand out again but this time Delhi are way ahead. 11 needed from 18. Rohrer comes in at five. Pathan with the ball.

Lee to Warner, FOUR runs

very short again and Warner hooks it away to the fence, through fine-leg and not a chance for the fielder there given how fine it went

Lee to Chand, OUT

top-edge and that's caught, stop the press I tell you! it was short of length and Chand was looking to hook it away, it was wide outside the off stump and that made the shot difficult, it takes the edge and goes high, not too far and Balaji gets under it takes it well

Unmukt Chand c Balaji b Lee 37 (64m 39b 4x4 0x6) SR: 94.87
Lee to Warner, 1 run

shorter in length and pulled it away to the deep square-leg for a single

Lee to Warner, SIX runs

slapped and for a six! that's a good definition of opening one's shoulders, it was wide and it was on a length, he slams it over long-off for a six!

MK: "@lovetanmay: I do not agree.. Given the KKR batting and bowling line up, Kallis is very important part of the team. He has scored more than 200 runs and taken 9 wickets this season so far. If an alrounder needs to be dropped, I would vote for Yusuf."

Lee to Chand, 1 run

outside the off stump and wants to open the face of the bat through to third-man, gets bit of an inside edge, still goes through to third-man

Lee to Chand, no run

on the middle stump and defended off the back foot, to the right of the bowler

Lee is on.
