All|Overs 1-50
W

to Samson, out Caught by Simmons!! This is not how you climb a Mt Everest. This is not the start you dream of. A fuller ball and Samson swings across the line. Wants to dominate with ball one. The bat turns a bit in the hands, taking the power off the shot. Carries to the man at deep square leg. The fielder moves a bit to his right and grabs that with ease. Samson c Simmons b 0(1)

W

to Shreyas Iyer, out Caught by Harbhajan!! Not for once in this innings did he look at ease and eventually hands a dolly to Harbhajan at mid-wicket. Short ball, Shreyas Iyer is clearly done in by the pace. Is late on the pull, the ball hits the splice and skies. Second one down for Delhi. They are not helping their cause. The move to send him up the order falls on its face. 150 wickets in the T20 League for the great Sri Lankan. Shreyas Iyer c Harbhajan b 3(6)

4

to Nair, FOUR, cheeky and effective. Makes a bit of room to this shortish ball that was going across him, guides it over the slip fielder, who is fairly wide. Third man too is in the ring

4

to Nair, FOUR, the swipe that Delhi batsmen have been attempting to no avail. But this time he has got a bit of bat on it. The delivery was slower than usual, might have helped his cause. Hits over mid-wicket and fetches a four

6

to Nair, SIX, sound! Often that is an indication of the timing. Nair clubs the length ball over mid-wicket. Looked a bit early on the shot but manages to put more than enough behind the shot to power it over the lurking fielder at the boundary

W

to Pant, out Caught by Simmons!! You got to look at Pant. He cannot believe it. Looks dejected. As if has been robbed of hope. The scoreboard pressure gets the better of him. A shortish ball that he tries to help with the pull, does not quite manoeuvre it well. Ends up hitting in the air at deep mid-wicket. The fielder onrushes a few yards and accepts the offer. Pant c Simmons b 0(3)

4

to Nair, FOUR, wickets are tumbling at one end but Nair continues to impress. Arches back to this short ball and ramps it over the keeper. A couple of bounces and into the fence

4

to Corey Anderson, FOUR, starts round the wicket and gets it to turn a bit around off. Corey Anderson goes back to cut, the ball keeps a bit low and takes the under edge. Goes between the legs of Parthiv. Bumrah, from short fine leg, gives the chase for a while before the ball beats him to the fence

W

to Nair, out Caught by Rohit!! Now Nair departs. Wheels coming off the chase. Nair, like the previous occasion, stepped down again. This time is smart enough to shorten the length. However, that does not deter Nair who goes with the shot, whips it well but does not get the elevation. Rohit Sharma at mid-wicket leaps a bit and plucks it. Nair c Rohit b 21(15) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

to Corey Anderson, FOUR, drags the mighty heave from around off. For a moment he seemed to have found mid-wicket. But it was in the gap between mid-wicket and mid-on

W

to Corey Anderson, out Caught by Karn Sharma!! Short ball and it devours Corey Anderson. He was trying to make some room but saw that the line was pretty close to his body. Decided to go for the pull, but the ball skid on. Could not get enough power behind the shot and found long-on to his left. Corey Anderson c Karn Sharma b 10(8) [4s-2]S

W

Sharma to Samuels, out Caught by Rohit!! Where did this come from? Rohit Sharma has taken a catch that for me qualifies as the grab of the tournament, at least so far. Samuels goes back to cut this leg-break, outside edges that flies to right of Rohit at slip. He spots it, not sure what was the reaction time, and plucks it one-handed when it has almost gone past him. Blinder from the Mumbai skipper. Samuels c Rohit b Sharma 1(5)

6

to Pat Cummins, SIX, he goes and goes big. What helps him the sensible approach - that is to go with the turn. Clubs over cow corner for a maximum

W

to Pat Cummins, out Caught by Parthiv Patel!! Mumbai are running through Delhi. Pat Cummins stays back to defend, plays for the extra turn. There is not much, takes the edge and settles into the gloves of the keeper. Pat Cummins c Parthiv Patel b 10(10) [6s-1]

W

Sharma to Rabada, out Caught by Rohit!! Nothing shot from Rabada. Goes back to cut a googly that is not short by any stretch of imagination. Gets a thick edge and Rohit Sharma is catching everything tonight. How can he drop something destined to go into his lap!? Rabada c Rohit b Sharma 0(5)

6

to Shami, SIX, that is a good hit! Slogs with the turn and hits it well over the long-on fence. 91 metre hit that

W

to Shami, out Caught by Pollard!! Goes with the turn again. No, not really. It is the attempted doosra from Bhajji. Does not turn much but does the trick, Shami miscues the big loft. Pollard gets under it at long-on and pushes Delhi closer to embarrassment. Shami c Pollard b 7(4) [6s-1]

W

Sharma to Zaheer, out Caught by Nitish Rana!! Delhi lose by 146 runs and it's an T20 League record. Zaheer tries to clear the straight boundary but mistimes in the air for Nitish Rana to run across from long-on and catch it. Juggled a few times but managed to hold on. Zaheer c Nitish Rana b Sharma 2(11)

4

to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, that's a poor ball, spoils the over for . Down the leg-side, the cutter gone wrong. Parthiv Patel helps the pull past the man in the ring at short fine leg

6

to Simmons, SIX, reminds of that night in Mumbai. Flat-batted pull on this back of a length delivery. Does not go high in the air, almost goes flat to the deep mid-wicket fence. So much power behind this one

4

to Simmons, FOUR, now he is playing with the mind of . It's a short ball, gives himself some room and slaps over cover-point

6

to Simmons, SIX, that is not the longest part at Kotla - the area behind square on the on-side. And to make things easy, it is a short ball down the leg-side. Simmons waits and thunders the pull well over the fence. Simmons is turning it on. Does not take much time to change the entire context

4

Cummins to Simmons, FOUR, that's as Caribbean as anything. Clears the left-leg and slaps this length ball over cover

4

Cummins to Parthiv el, FOUR, how far has that gone. Far enough but bounces just inside the ropes. Parthiv el took on the short ball and went for the hook, hitting it high and almost handsome. One bounce over the ropes at deep backwars square leg fence

4

Cummins to Parthiv el, FOUR, Parthiv el is giving it all. Backs away to this fuller ball and slices it past the ring, races to the third man fence

4

Cummins to Parthiv el, leg byes, FOUR, Cummins switches to round the wicket to finish the over. Does not bring about a change in fortunes, drifts down the leg and Parthiv el helps it past the keeper. In fact between the keeper and the man at short fine leg with a whippish pull. That is what I saw, the umpire saw things differently and correctly. Given as leg-byes, must have come off thigh or something else

4

to Simmons, FOUR, shortish ball. Bad ball to start off the over. Might have been warming up. Simmons makes full use of it, cuts past the man at backward point

4

to Simmons, FOUR, he is cracking those off the back foot. And the length from is not helping the cause of Delhi. Bit of width, Simmons creates some more and cuts it past the man at point

OT

to Parthiv Patel, no run, direct hit at the striker's end and Parthiv Patel was gone. But as luck would have it, Cummins missed the target. It was again a short ball and Parthiv Patel went for the pre-meditated hook, could not get behind the shot and ended up deflecting off the face of the bat toward mid-wicket. Was blinded through the motion and did not spot where the ball went. Heard the call late but was back in time

W

to Parthiv Patel, out Stumped!! This was coming. Parthiv Patel was not quite able to find the fence despite his regular attempts. This time curmudgeonly steps down to go down town. The googly was always going across him. Once he did not meet the pitch of the ball, the doom was waiting. Pant did not do anything silly, collected the ball and whipped the bails. Parthiv Patel st Pant b 25(22) [4s-3]

4

to Simmons, FOUR, he is not going to budge, this man who beats jetlags. Clears the front leg and hits it flat over mid-off, one bounce and over the ropes

OT

to Simmons, 1 run, tossed up outside off, driven down towards long-off for a single, brings up another T20 League fifty

6

to Pollard, SIX, massive, nicely tossed up on off, Pollard gets his left leg out of the way and swings through the line, plenty of height and way into the stands, long-off was a mere spectator

6

to Pollard, SIX, the short straight boundaries has worked against here. He can't believe it - for a moment, long-off thought it was an easy chance, but he kept watching it soar over his head. Coming to the ball, it was another lovely leg-break, Pollard was completely done in by it, mistimes it badly and still gets a maximum. Who wants to be a bowler in T20s?

6

Cummins to Simmons, SIX, massive, once again the batsman seemed to be done in by the length, but Simmons has still managed to send this one way into the stands at wide long-on. On a good length and on the stumps, Simmons was backing away on the slog, had to drag it in the end and still gets plenty of bat on it

6

Anderson to Simmons, SIX, cracking shot, slower short ball from Anderson, Simmons walks across the stumps and pulls it high and over mid-wicket, went a long way into the stands

W

Anderson to Simmons, out Caught by Samuels!! Catching practice for Samuels and Simmons falls after a fine knock. Relief on the faces of the Delhi fielders, this was short and on the stumps - asking to be smacked. Simmons shuffled inside the line and was looking to help it fine, went off the middle and straight into the pouch of Samuels - at short fine leg. He doesn't drop those, juggles and takes it on the second attempt. Simmons walks off to a good ovation. Simmons c Samuels b Anderson 66(43) [4s-5 6s-4]

4

Anderson to Rohit, FOUR, beautifully played! This was a back of a length delivery outside off, Rohit waits on it, uses the pace on the ball and dabbed it behind square on the off-side. Backward point dived to his left, short third man to his right - but both can't stop the ball

6

to Pollard, SIX, sheer power from Pollard, helped his cause with a long hop, Pollard rocks back and flat-bats it back over the bowler, deep into the stands at long-off

6

to Pollard, SIX, another biggie and Pollard has deposited this one into the top tier of Kotla. gave this one plenty of air, Pollard gets a big stride forward and dismisses it high and over long-on. He's looking extremely dangerous

4

to Pollard, FOUR, Pollard gets way with another slice of luck. He came down the track, set himself up for the lap sweep, spotted it and went wider, finds the outside edge and it loops past Pant. Can't do much as a bowler in this format of the game

4

to Pollard, FOUR, full marks for effort from Iyer, but he could not stop the boundary. Length delivery on off, Pollard heaved and the inside edge squirted towards fine leg. Iyer ran across from deep square and dived, but the ball won the race

W

to Rohit, out Caught by Mishra!! That's the pace of . Rohit is one of the finest pullers in India and still he's undone by the South African's speed. Dug in short and gets a nice lift on this, Rohit goes for the pull tad too late, the top-edge pops towards short fine leg and Mishra completes the formalities. Big wicket for DEL at this stage of the game. They need few more to take control. Rohit c Mishra b 10(6) [4s-1]

4

Cummins to Pollard, FOUR, fifty for Pollard. The move has paid off. He raises his bat and acknowledges the applause from his team mates. He shouldn't have been on strike for this ball. The basics in cricket I tell you. Low full toss and Pollard drills it past mid-off. No stopping that

6

Anderson to Hardik Pandya, SIX, the ball hits the ad cushions on the full. Slanted across the right-hander, Pandya stands his ground and smokes it over extra cover. Two men in front of square riding the boundary and he split them to perfection

4

Anderson to Pollard, FOUR, good finish to the over. Anderson misses the yorker by a couple of inches and that is enough for Pollard to tonk it back over him, one bounce and evades the long-on fielder

D

to Hardik Pandya, 3 runs, dropped! First, Iyer spills one and then takes ages to release the ball. Allowing the duo to scamper back for the third. Short of length and Hardik is hurried on the flat-batted pull, spliced towards mid-off. Iyer rans back and tries to take it over his left shoulder, got both hands but the ball pops out

4

Cummins to Pollard, FOUR, lovely batting. Low full toss outside off, not far from the yorker, Pollard is deep in the crease, opens the bat face and drives through extra cover. No chance for the sweeper

4

Cummins to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, this was not the area Hardik was targeting. He was looking to go over extra cover, but the bat turned on impact and the length delivery was sliced over backward point

6

Cummins to Hardik Pandya, SIX, brings up the 200 and the 50-run stand in style. The cross-seam full delivery, Hardik stays right back in his crease and lifts it over mid-off, the 146kph delivery sailed over the rope

6

Cummins to Hardik Pandya, SIX, they have recovered from that tidy last over. Back of a length delivery and Hardik short-arm pulls it over deep mid-wicket, the short boundaries taking care of the rest
