Nathan Coulter-Nile403037.50142201
1.2 to BB McCullum, all right, this one hasn't cost Daredevils too much. Yuvraj gets a chance to make amends immediately. mcCullum charges at COulter-Nile who pulls the length back, and the top edge flies over the keeper's head. Yuvraj runs back to take an easy catch. 20/1
3.6 to SK Raina, and Raina is bowled. Coulter-Nile has struck twice in two overs. Raina was pegged back first, then made to play defensive shots. And that's it. That is enough in T20 to create pressure that can make you play a low-percentage shot. And he just slogs already. The head falls away, is beaten, and the leg stump is pegged back. 38/2
19.5 to MS Dhoni, and this is a lovely bouncer. He has been mis-hit for two sixes by Dhoni, but this is aimed right at the melon. Dhoni backs away, and is in no position to pull. Manages a massive edge that settles with mid-off. 148/7
Domnic Muthuswami301816.00103000
16.4 to DJ Bravo, skiddy ball and he out lbw. every batsman that Yuvraj misses gets out next ball. pretty straight, and just short of a length, and it skids through to beat him and trap him in front. Height is the only issue, but Vineet Kulkarni has raised his finger. 120/6
Imran Tahir402716.7582000
8.1 to DR Smith, short ball, Smith has sent it straight down the throat of deep midwicket. Coulter-Nile plays a part in yet another wicket. Just one of those shots, though. The ball deserves to be hit, but it has perhaps skidded on to him, and he is hurried into the pull. Easy catch for Coulter-Nile at deep midwicket. 71/3
Amit Mishra402115.25100100
15.2 to RA Jadeja, well that was the plan with Jadeja to hit the leggie with the turn, except that Mishra turns this away. Jadeja hasn't been watching them out of the hand, which turns his advance down the wicket into a highly low-percentage shot. Beaten comprehensively by the googly, and is stumped by a mile. 117/5
Jean-Paul Duminy201517.5041010
12.2 to F du Plessis, the first special catch of the IPL, after eight drops. But it is a goodie from Shreyas Iyer, the Mumbai youngster. Du Plessis backs away again to go over extra, but is cramped up this time, which means he ends up hitting it mush straighter than he wants to. Iyer camps on the fence, and takes this coolly overhead. 100/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ashish Nehra402536.25123010
2.3 to CM Gautam, and Nehra has won the early contest. Gautam never looked comfortable against him, trying to manufacture shots. Yet again he tries a shot that is not on. Looks to go over mid-on, but this length ball is too close to him, and he has sent this straight down mid-on's throat. Nehra blows him a kiss as he walks off. Love is in the air. 15/1
2.6 to MA Agarwal, and Nehra has taken out the openers in one over. Agarwal tries one shot too many. Nehra has run his fingers on this. Slightly off-pace with another forceful shot, and he is early into it. The outside edge is taken by Dhoni. 20/2
4.6 to SS Iyer, this is not the smartest bit of batting. He has fallen to an old little trap from Dhoni. More experienced/better batsmen do better. After that four first ball, Dhoni has guessed off side is Iyer's game, and has placed a deep point and opened the third man region. The next three balls: a slog into the leg side, an attempt to open the face, and another slog. This slog goes a mile in the air and settles with du Plessis at extra cover. You have got to make them work harder for your wickets. 39/3
Mohit Sharma403318.2583110
13.1 to KM Jadhav, soft. Softest ever. Any softer and it would be wax. Jadhav looks like Duncan Fletcher giving catching practice to the slips and point. Just opens the face on a short and wide ball to give point an easy catch. 87/4
Ishwar Pandey403017.5094000
15.4 to JP Duminy, Duminy has been running balls down to third man well, but Pandey has kept getting closer and closer to off. This time Duminy gets the inside edge onto the stumps. Huge wicket. 106/6
Ravichandran Ashwin402516.2582010
17.4 to NM Coulter-Nile, and Ashwin has that wicket. Coulter-Nile makes up his mind to slog-sweep, Ashwin fires one in full and fast, and it squeezes under the bat to knock the stumps back. Ashwin has again done the job for his captain. All down to former Super Kings player Morkel now for Daredevils. 123/7
Dwayne Bravo403629.0063120
14.3 to Yuvraj Singh, Yuvraj is not looking at the ball as he pulls. There has been a plan to bowl at his head, he has managed to keep it down twice, but this time he is late into the pull. The head falls away, he is not looking at it, and the ball comes and hits the bat as opposed to the hat hitting the ball. Easy catch for midwicket. 99/5
19.3 to Imran Tahir, Tahir slogs, mis-ihts a length ball, he top-edges it to deep midwicket, and Tahir has done half his job of getting off strike, but has managed no run off it. Easy catch for Raina at deep midwicket. 137/9
