All|Overs 1-50
W

Kulkarni to Samson, out Caught by Faulkner!! Poor from Sanju Samson. hawal Kulkarni has his fingers aloft as Gujarat get their first breakthrough. Full an jagge back in aroun leg-stump, Samson went for the flick but got it off the toe-en. A tame shot that. Faulkner runs back from mi-on an clasps it over his hea. Samson c Faulkner b Kulkarni 1(6)

4

Kulkarni to e Kock, FOUR, now he gets the line an length he wants, full an wie. e Kock stays put an allows his willow to take over. Flat-bat bang to the left of mi-off

W

Kulkarni to e Kock, out Caught by Raina!! There it is! This was coming, ain't it? e Kock's struggle comes to an en. Slower length ball arrowe wier of off, QK backs away an tries to clear the infiel on the off-sie. Attempts an uppish lofte rive an skews it off the outsie half. Raina at cover waners aroun an gobbles it up. e Kock c Raina b Kulkarni 5(11) [4s-1]

4

Kulkarni to Nair, FOUR, that's a hit-me elivery from Kulkarni. Short an sat up on a length, pulle with sublime timing an panache through mi-wicket

W

Kulkarni to Nair, out Caught by Tambe!! Almost a right-hane version of Raina's ismissal toay. The hip-tickler (obviously short in length) an Nair flicke in the air. Went quickly towars Tambe (at short fine) who anticipates well an reverse-cups it in front of his face. Well one, young man! (tongue-in-cheek). Nair c Tambe b Kulkarni 9(7) [4s-1]

4

to Rishabh Pant, FOUR, that's Pant at his best. We have seen that a lot in the U-19 WC. Waiting for the ball to turn away and then playing the late-cut, placed it to perfection. Well and behind backward point for a sweetly-timed boundary

4

to Duminy, FOUR, that's a candyfloss. Short and served right in Duminy's slot. He rocks back and murders the pull through mid-wicket. Deep fielder had no chance

4

to Rishabh Pant, FOUR, welcome back Mr , keeps it full on the pads of Pant. He whips it over backward square leg

W

to Rishabh Pant, out Caught by P Kumar!! does not take long to get a wicket. Good catch, a tumbling one by PK near the deep backward square leg fence. The youngster's innings comes to a sad end, it was not a great delivery. Shortish on the stumps and he whipped it, the ball did not have enough legs and it dipped in front of PK, who took a good catch. Rishabh Pant c P Kumar b 20(17) [4s-2]

6

to Duminy, SIX, too full and to Duminy's liking, he swings across and smacks it over cow corner for a maximum

4

to Duminy, FOUR, Duminy moves way too across and makes his own length, swipes this flatter delivery. No chance for Smith at the deep mid-wicket fence

6

to C Morris, SIX, a little more effort and that could have gone to Purana Quila! Length delivery and Morris stepped down a little, went through with the loft over long-off. Carried 101m

OT

to C Morris, no run, slower ball and Morris pats in front of cover-point, Duminy was halfway down the track, trying to steal a single. Was sent back, a direct hit and he could have continued running, back to the pavillion though

6

to C Morris, SIX, sinks down on one knee and it is difficult to describe the shot. Let's just say he played an amalgam of flick and whip to clear the deep square leg fence. Morris's big hits are resuscitating this one for Delhi

4

Bravo to Duminy, FOUR, mid-off was inside the ring and JPD has made full use of it. Waited for this slower ball and then lifted it past the fielder at mid-off. One bounce over the ropes

6

Bravo to C Morris, SIX, this is cruel. Short ball and Morris pulls it, get it off the top edge, the ball flies high and the fielder at deep backward square leg can only watch it sail over him

6

to C Morris, SIX, it scraped the skies, still had enough legs to carry the distance. misses the length and drops it under the bat of Morris, he muscles it over the fielder at long-on

6

to C Morris, SIX, and another one. This man is on fire. Drags the slog this time and clears the long-on fielder at ease. is unhappy with himself

4

Kulkarni to C Morris, FOUR, charity accepte. Full toss outsie off this time (he IS teasing them), Morris throws his bat an slashes it over backwar point for a bounary

6

Smith to C Morris, SIX, you don't do that! Just don't. Full toss, really Smith? Swung over deep mid-wicket with a shimmy and disdain. 43 off 22

6

Smith to C Morris, SIX, a Ferrari fifty for Chris Morris! Wow. Just wow. Fastest fifty of this T20 League. Cross-seam but Morris has his magic glasses on. Flat-bats it over Smith's head for 96 metres

6

Smith to C Morris, SIX, holy moly! A hat-trick of sixes. When was the last time he played a dot? This is getting crazy. Smith is clueless. Bowls it on back of a length and it's slow again, Morris takes the invitation to generate his own power and clobbers it over deep mid-wicket. What over...this was into the stands

W

Bravo to Duminy, out Caught&Bowled!! Oh Duminy! You just had to take a single. Instead uses his feet on this slower delivery, the premeditation meant that he couldn't adjust, was early and the intended loft over Bravo's head was mistimed towards mid-on where the bowler collected with a shuffle - ran back and let his bucket hands do it all. Duminy c and b Bravo 48(43) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

Bravo to C Morris, FOUR, no line and length is going to do. Pitches this up, was off-pace again but Morris is in the mood. Lifts it wide of mid-off delicately and doesn't even bother to run

4

Bravo to C Morris, FOUR, Morris! Morris! Morris! Pure timing. Almost squeezed out this length ball with a punch and tailored the gap between cover and extra cover. Raina ran back, dragged the ball in and but couldn't arrest the head-first slide in the deep. Parries over the ropes...with the ball

4

Bravo to C Morris, FOUR, Faulkner has let it (the match?) through. Morris squeezed it out to cover-point, Faulkner leaps to his left but cannot catch it. Races away to the fences. How costly would that drop be?

OT

Bravo to C Morris, 2 runs, can you believe? Jadeja again! Full toss again! Flicked to long-on where Jadeja fires it wide of the keeper. DK fumbles to collect and had he grabbed it, Morris was gone, he had given up. DK also hurt his fingers in the process...

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, that's a starter for Smith. Full ball pitched wide enough for Smith to lean into it and flog it through the covers. Was expecting it to come in, didn't, and Smith could middle it to perfection

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, he's India's very own version of Mustafizur. *slow claps* Rolls his fingers, gets it to dart away from a length and Smith's leg-side tuck ekes out an outside edge. Wide of the diving gully and through the gap for a boundary

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, edged and wide of the fielder! Duminy was motionless. Gets it to bounce off the turf, Smith raises his bat to punch it, couldn't make up for the bounce and it flies to the left of slip to give him another boundary

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, that's a good over which has leaked 18 runs. On a length and robbed of pace, angling away, and this is deliberate from Smith. Opens the bat face, glides it wide of the gully and shaves it through to the third man fence

6

Nadeem to Dwayne mith, IX, mith ha a bazooka. Not a willow. Hint of turn from middle, mith get under it and loft it nonchalantly over long-off. mooth thi. o un-mith thi

6

to Brendon McCullum, SIX, drama! Length ball angled across to allow enough width, McCullum flogs it with a cut shot. Had enough time to play it in front of square, thumps it uppishly and there Samson was. At sweeper cover. Leaps high, may be a tad late and tips it over. Oh...

6

to Brendon McCullum, SIX, open the tin cans! Popeye! Shortish ball, sitting up pretty, McCullum swings across the line and clobbers it over deep mid-wicket. Oh boy, is it the seatbelt day or what?

6

Nadeem to Dwayne mith, IX, thi i a hort ball and gue what, it' been murdered. With feet glued to the pitch and a bat-wing that could wat flie. Get the wing going and pull over deep mid-wicket

OT

Nadeem to Dwayne mith, 1 run, nudged off the pad to deep mid wicket to bring the fifty run tand, the fatet one thi T20 League

6

Morris to Brendon Mullum, SIX, try telling Mullum that his methods are flawed. 100th T20 League six for Brendon Mullum. This length ball skids on with the angle, Mullum gets under it, takes it on the up and massares it into the downtown territories

4

Morris to Brendon Mullum, FOUR, it's a highball day, fellas! Get in the game. Short ball, Mullum uses his bat like a push iron, pulls it nonhalantly and the ball just dips inside the long-on ropes to make it 12 runs off the over

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, no other way to put it. That's been dismissed. Imagine a flick shot with the swagger you execute a pull shot. Swings his bat, razors it off his pad with a high followthrough and dismisses it round the corner

4

Nadeem to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, drift it on leg with the intention to cut the room but McCullum doen't cut the lack. traightened from a length and McCullum rocked back in a hurry to pull it through deep quare leg

4

Nadeem to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, that' abolute filth. Give width, the length' hort and and it' been cut....but wait...there' Pant in the deep. What ha he done? Mifield it at weeper cover. Let the ball lip through. Oh my. And then let the ball lip a he collect the ball and trie to throw back in. Nerve, people call it

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, French Open's here. Dragdown that's mediocre enough and McCullum rocks back to thump it over . Uses his forehand, bottom hand and everything to power it off his bazooka

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, fired flat but not much wide. McCullum shuffles across, protracts his hands on the sweep and slots it through mid-wicket

OT

to Brendon McCullum, 1 run, and Brendon McCullum gets a full toss to get to his fifty. A tip of a hat. Lovely innings. Why has he retired, again? On the pads and McCullum opts for sanity, tucks it to long-on and runs for the milestone

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, this is the 21st century. You don't use the width on legbreak to flash a cut. You switch around and reverse-sweep it uppishly (and nonchalantly) through third man

OT

to Brendon McCullum, leg byes, 1 run, gets the googly out of his armoury, like Mishra. Raps the pads, like Mishra. And gets away as the turn would have taken it down leg. Off the pads to allow a leg bye

6

to Dwayne Smith, SIX, that hasn't been hit, this has been couriered. Straight down the ground. Deliciously flights this, Smith feasts on it and lofts it over in the most humiliating of ways. It's carnage, as Alan Wilkins calls it

W

to Dwayne Smith, out Lbw!! has struck, finally a wicket for Delhi. Respite in the end! Flipper, quicker than Smith expected, was trying to work it around the corner from his crease, failed to get any bat and the umpire obliged the appeal. Smith was not happy with the decision though. He even showed his bat to the umpire. Might have to lose a chunk of his match fees. Was there an inside edge? Replays showed that there was no inside edge and the ball would have clipped the leg-stump. Dwayne Smith lbw b 53(30) [4s-5 6s-3]

W

Morris to Brendon Mullum, out Bowled!! The notion that the full toss is a bad delivery is a fallay. At least on this oasion. It was a slower full toss, that dipped in as well, Mullum swung aross and missed it. The ball hit the base of the leg-stik and Mullum's herois see an end. He grimaes in pain as he walks bak. Perhaps that bak ontinues to trouble him. Brendon Mullum b Morris 60(36) [4s-6 6s-3]

W

Morris to Raina, out aught by Nair!! This is what happens when you have a bowler as the aptain. That fielder at short bakward square leg was kept for this shot by Raina, where he hops bak and tuks the shortish ball around the orner. The ball was short hurled towards the rib-age area, Raina played it straight to the fielder there. Brilliant field plaing by Zaheer Khan. Raina Nair b Morris 2(5)

4

to D Karthik, FOUR, how beautifully was that done! Shortish ball and played the cut well in front of square on the off-side, more of a flat batted shot to find the gap

W

to Jadeja, out Caught by de Kock!! Amazing captaincy, how well has Zaheer planned things today! Quicker delivery that had some room to flay the cut, Jadeja did that but not with perfection. Got a faint edge and de Kock gobbled that up. Delhi are delighted. They should be, the ploy has worked for them. Jadeja c de Kock b 4(7)

6

to D Karthik, SIX, that will do for Gujarat. This one has come after a long break. Gets underneath this delivery and flogs it over the bowler, the ball just about clears the long-off fence

W

to Ishan Kishan, out Caught by Duminy!! He looked fidgety ever since he arrived and has to depart. Misery comes to an end. flighted this goggly that went across the left-hander, he wanted to go up and over the cover region, could only manage to slice it off the toe part of the bat, the ball skied high at cover and an easy catch for the fielder. Ishan Kishan c Duminy b 2(6)

W

to D Karthik, out Caught by Duminy!! Good catch by Duminy at short fine leg, dives in front and takes it inches off the ground. Nothing bad with the intention of Karthik, he had to go anyway. Moved across the line, eyeing to find the gap through fine leg on the sweep. Did not place it well and Duminy dived in front to make it two in two. Hat-trick ball coming up. D Karthik c Duminy b 19(17) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

Morris to Faulkner, FOUR, low full toss and Faulkner was baking away, arves it away in the end, there was no sweeper over and gets a four as a result

4

Morris to Faulkner, FOUR, one bad ball and it has been punished. Missed the yorker and ended up dishing a full toss, Faulkner flogged it to beat the man souting the deep mid-wiket fene. Duminy was the man who ran to his right but ould not stop it from rossing the fene
