Attacking Warner brings relief to Delhi

A counter-attack in the middle order from David Warner and a miserly 18th over in the chase from Umesh Yadav gave some relief for Delhi Daredevils with a victory in the battle of the bottom-placed teams this season

That's all we have for today. Cheers

"Disappointing with the ball in the last five," says Aaron Finch. "That cost us at the end of the day. We are a bit conservative in the chase, but we could have made up. Morne, Umesh and Nadeem bowled really well. We have got only ourselves to blame for where we find ourselves. We haven't been consistent. We need seven from seven to get to nine wins. We have nothing to lose now."

"We had a really good game," says Mahela Jayawardene. "We had to adjust to the wicket upfromt, which we did. Davey batted really well towards the end. The bowlers bowled really well. I thought 140-150 might have been par, 160 was pretty decent. We need to keep this momentum, keep working hard and get wins under our belt. We haven't been consistent, hopefully we can do that now."

"To bat through is the role I have been given," says David Warner, the Man of the Match. "I am enjoying it. I just thought if I could get myself in and bat 20 overs, we could put a decent score on the board. We were always trying to get 10 an over for last five, sixty was bonus. You want the ball to follow you in the field, you want to be in the hot spots. You see Kohli, AB, they want to do that too. Hopefully we can take the momentum into the next game."

How good was that Umesh Yadav over? Yorker, yorker, slower-ball wicket, bouncer, slower short ball, the sharp bounce that got the big Yuvraj Singh wicket. Delhi move off the bottom of the table now. Pune inhabit that slot. Do hang around for quotes from the presentation

19.6
1
Nadeem to Manhas, 1 run

this makes it official. Manhas chips one to deep midwicket. Delhi have won by 15 runs

19.5
Nadeem to Manhas, no run

quick yorker, hit back to him

19.4
1
Nadeem to Smith, 1 run

nearly the yorker, Smith can't get under it. Only the single to deep cover. Delhi have won now

19.3
6
Nadeem to Smith, SIX runs

that's one of the four sixes needed. Nadeem bowls length for the first time, and he has launched this over wide long-on. Not sure Smith will get this length again

19.2
4
Nadeem to Smith, FOUR runs

this time he stands his ground but is yorked again. However, this one he has squeezed past short third for four

19.1
Nadeem to Smith, no run

Smith charges at him to york himself up. Dug out back to him

Last over coming up. Is there a last twist in store? Nadeem to bowl. Had Yuvraj been here, this would have been interesting

18.6
Nehra to Manhas, no run

moves too far across, looking to pull it behind square, misses a straight, short-of-a-length delivery

18.5
1
Nehra to Smith, 1 run

Smith is charging, gets a high full toss, gets only a single to long-off

18.4
1
Nehra to Manhas, 1 run

Delhi bowler to Delhi batsman. Manhas is backing away, Nehra follows him, concedes just the single

18.3
1
Nehra to Smith, 1 run

looks to swipe this, gets a single off the inside edge

18.2
Nehra to Smith, no run

slower ball, beats the almighty slow from Smith

18.1
4
Nehra to Smith, FOUR runs

Smith might have other idea. Plays the pick-up to a length ball on the pads, clears short fine leg with ease

Thirty-five to get off two overs. Not happening

Yadav to Yuvraj, OUT

superb bowling from Yadav. This is the sharper bouncer. Between the shoulder and the head. Yuvraj is going nowhere with the pull, and the top edge is taken at deep square. This has been a lovely over from Yadav

Yuvraj Singh c Rohrer b Yadav 31 (41m 24b 4x4 0x6) SR: 129.16
17.5
Yadav to Yuvraj, no run

slower short ball, beats the pull

17.4
2
Yadav to Yuvraj, 2 runs

sensational work from Warner, not so from Yuvraj. He has pulled this superbly wide of long-on, Yuvraj is jogging he has got four, but Warner hares across the outfield to put in the dive and keep it in

Smith is the new man in, but he is not on strike

17.3
W
Yadav to Wright, OUT

what a superb over so far from Yadav. He has pushed Wright out of his comfort zone with those two quick deliveries, and now slips in the slower ball, which he has lobbed to long-off

Luke Wright c Warner b Yadav 19 (35m 18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 105.55
17.2
Yadav to Wright, no run

lovely bowling. The perfect yorker on middle and off, dug out back to him

17.1
Yadav to Wright, no run

well bowled. Spots him backing away, and he goes full and wide to eke out a dot

Yadav to bowl his last over

Morkel to Yuvraj, 2 runs

this time Yuvraj pulls, and he has managed to get it wide of deep midwicket for a couple

16.5
Morkel to Yuvraj, no run

short of a lenght, hip high, no room, Yuvraj can't do much with it
