All|Overs 1-50
4

to Narine, FOUR, there's the width and there's the first boundary for Narine. No feet movement at all from the spinner, stands his ground and slashes it off the outer half to third man, the fielder was inside the ring and it turned out to be a safe shot

W

to Narine, out Bowled!! Thank you for coming. One ball is all needed to send the dangerous Narine back to the hut. Full, fast and straight - the mantra to get Narine out. angled across the left-hander, Narine's feet went nowhere with the prod forward, the ball beats the outside edge and clatters into the off-stump. Early wicket for DEL. Narine b 4(4) [4s-1]

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, Iyer helps Uthappa to get off the mark with a boundary. Full and drifting onto the pads, Uthappa with the kind of form he's in, clips it through mid-wicket. Iyer did the hard work of getting to the ball, but slipped while gathering it

4

to Uthappa, byes, FOUR, Pant had no chance. 147kph bumper that kept climbing, Uthappa ducked under it and evaded it with ease, but unfortunately Pant couldn't glove it even with a full stretch upwards

4

Anderson to Gambhir, FOUR, first ball from Anderson and it is smashed for four. Short, wide and Gambhir had the width to free his arms, slaps it behind point and third man had no chance

4

Cummins to Gambhir, FOUR, errs in line and that is enough for Gambhir to collect a boundary. On leg-stump, Gambhir gets inside the line and uses Cummins's pace to glance it past the diving short fine fielder

4

to Uthappa, leg byes, FOUR, sprays it down leg, Uthappa can't meet with the tickle, but the ball brushes the pad to beat Pant to his left. Poor ball that from

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, in the air and just over the leaping mid-on fielder. Uthappa is early into the pick up shot, more of a leading edge and the ball balloons over a backtracking mid-on fielder. The practice wickets take care of the rest

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, greeted with a dance down the wicket, gets right to the pitch of the flighted delivery and lofts it with the turn over mid-wicket, one bounce and into the fence. He's one of the best players of spin

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, now Uthappa uses the pace of to pick up a boundary. He waits and waits for the ball to arrive, then at the last second opens the bat face and runs it past the slip fielder

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, lovely shot! Another 50+ stand for the duo. Continuing from where they had left off in Pune. Loopy leg-break on the stumps, Gambhir makes just a bit of room and chips it beautifully inside out. The onus was on timing rather than power. Long-off dived in vain to stop that

6

Morris to Uthappa, SIX, sharp short delivery and Uthappa is up for the challenge. He gets into position quickly and nails the pull behind square, flat and all the way. Good start to the over

4

Morris to Uthappa, FOUR, full on off and middle, Uthappa flicks it uppishly over the mid-wicket fielder. Not timed well enough but has enough fuel to collect himself a boundary

6

Morris to Uthappa, SIX, 16 runs off the first three balls. This is the best of the lot. Good length ball on the pads, Uthappa just picks it up nonchalantly and places it into the stands at deep mid-wicket

6

Cummins to Uthappa, SIX, he promised some fireworks this year and he's keeping up his words. Anticied the length to be short, got quickly into position and smashed the pull over the deep mid-wicket fence

4

Cummins to Uthappa, FOUR, in the air and over the fielder. Cummins pitches it up and Uthappa does not need a second invitation, drives in the air and over Mishra at mid-off. Even a full length jump from Mishy wasn't enough

OT

Anderson to Uthappa, 1 run, fifty for Uthappa. It is his fourth this season. Waves the bat around, walks towards his skipper and shakes hands. Got it in 26 balls against PUNE, today has taken two balls less. Back of a length and on the hips, tucked square on the leg-side

4

Anderson to Gambhir, FOUR, the runs keep flowing. The 100 is up for KOL. The equation is down to a run-a-ball. This should be a cake walk. Banged in halfway down the wicket, Gambhir swats the pull over mid-wicket. He had to really reach out and did well to avoid the fielder

6

to Uthappa, SIX, picks the bones out of this googly from . It was tossed up generously and as soon as Uthappa picked it, he decided it was going in the stands. Heaves it way over long-on. It was right in the slot too

4

Anderson to Gambhir, FOUR, this is gentle pace from Anderson. At 127kph, he has tried to bang it in short. The ball sits up for Gambhir and he pulls it off the waist through mid-wicket

W

Anderson to Gambhir, out Uthappa Run Out!! Nair has one stump to aim at from point, and he nails it. Uthappa is gone here. He looks surprised as OUT flashes on the big screen. Thought he was in. But he's a yard short at least. Nair is really swift to get onto the ball as Gambhir chops it to his left. Quick gather, quick release and a rocket throw. But the magic in the field has come 10 overs too late. Uthappa punches gloves with Gambhir as he walks off. Uthappa run out (Nair) 59(33) [4s-5 6s-4]

4

Anderson to Gambhir, FOUR, so much time for Gambhir against someone of Anderson's pace. The ball is short and wide, Gambhir plants his back foot a foot outside the off-stump to get to the ball and then slices it away past backward point into the boundary. Brings up two milestones with this one shot. Another fifty for him, as well as 6000 T20 runs

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, really poor delivery from . He strays in line, tosses it up on leg stump and all Gambhir does is paddle him away fine into the boundary

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, that's a tired dive from Zaheer at backward point. He's struggling with his hamstring too, so can't really blame him. But is just seething. He turns around in disgust. But this is awful bowling to begin with. Bowls it short and wide again, and Gambhir slices it neatly to the left of Zaheer. A younger fielder would have stopped that

OT

to Gambhir, 1 run, pushes a single down to long-off

4

to M Pandey, FOUR, drops it short again and Pandey swats him to the right of long-on to finish a truly horrendous over from . 13 off it

W

to M Pandey, out Bowled!! Absolutely shatters middle and leg-stump. Pandey doesn't have a clue. A pacy, full ball at 146kph which bursts right through bat and pad. His feet aren't moving, he is playing across the line, he is beaten for pace. Poor technique from Pandey. exposes it and how. M Pandey b 5(4) [4s-1]

4

Morris to Jackson, FOUR, that's more of a steer than a cut. Width on offer from Morris as he starts a new spell, Jackson times it beautifully as he guides it past backward point

4

Morris to Gambhir, FOUR, DEL are just waiting for this to get over. The field is well up. Morris bowls it full just outside off and Gambhir just has to get his placement right as he drives through extra-cover

4

Morris to Jackson, FOUR, a good little cameo this from Jackson. He's handling himself really well. Short of length into the body, he swivels nicely and pulls it away through backward square. Uppish but in the gap

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, flicked away to the mid-wicket boundary. No one bothers to move. Huge open space in the field. Poor from DEL. Not at all mindful of the net run rate

4

to Nair, FOUR, first boundary of the match, short and angling into Karun's hips, he gets inside the line and tucks it behind square on the on-side. Fine leg was inside the ring and the ball rolls away to the fence

4

Yadav to Samson, FOR, nicely played by Samson, short of a length and on the stmps, he leans forward, presents the fll face of the bat and flicks it over mid-wicket, beats the infield and rolls away to the fence

6

Yadav to Samson, SIX, cracking shot, fraction too short from mesh, Samson is qick to swivel across, ses the pace on the ball and helps it on its way, went sailing over the ropes at backward sqare leg

4

to Nair, FOUR, too straight from , ends up drifting onto Karun's pads, he uses the pace on the ball and flicks it behind square on the on-side. The man in the deep was very square and has no chance

4

to Nair, FOUR, lovely, no wonder - the Delhi are backing him despite poor form. This is a top shot, 'exquisite - a proper cricket shot', gushes KP on air. Nothing wrong with the ball, on a good length and just outside off, Karun leans forward, drives it on the up and splits the gap past cover-point, no need to run for those

4

to Samson, FOUR, nicely played by Samson, back of a length and just outside off, he waits on it, opens the face of the bat at the last moment and taps it past the lone slip, beats the man getting across from third man

4

to Samson, FOUR, beautifully played, on a good length and just outside off, Samson leans forward, drives it on the up and splits the gap between cover and cover-point, rolls away to the fence in a hurry

4

to Samson, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries for Samson, this is some supreme batting from the two Delhi openers. Cross seasm delivery from , but it's short and wide of off, Samson waits on it and cuts it behind square on the off-side, beats the inner ring and rolls away to the fence

W

to Nair, out Lbw!! has got past the dangerous opening partnership. Karun was looking solid, but gets too ambitious and pays the ultimate penalty. This was tossed up on the off-stump line, Karun went down on his knees as he looked to play the slog sweep, missed it completely and was struck on the back thigh-pad. Was the impact outside off? Need to have a look at the replays, but it was certainly hitting the stumps, the umpire doesn't think a lot, up goes the dreaded finger. Replays prove he was just about right, both impact and hitting the stumps remained with the umpire's call. Nair lbw b 15(17) [4s-3]

6

Yadav to Samson, SIX, well tossed up delivery and the batsman slog sweeps it out of the park. That brings fifty for Samson! This has been a fine knock from the keeper-batsman. This might as well break the shackles

4

Grandhomme to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, dragged down short livery and down onto the leg-si, the batsman swivels on the pull and gets it fine past the man at short fine leg for a four

OT

Grandhomme to Shreyas Iyer, 1 run, fifty of the combo comes up! That was on the pads and clipped away uppishly for the man at ep mid-wicket

6

Grandhomme to Shreyas Iyer, SIX, short livery, sans any pace and the batsman hammers the pull away over the man at ep mid-wicket for a sixer. Iyer has changed gears as well

OT

Grandhomme to Shreyas Iyer, 2 runs, pushes it away into the off-si for a quick single and a direct hit at the bowler's end would have seen the back of Shreyas Iyer but he survives as there was no direct hit and in the end, gets an extra run on the overthrow

4

Yadav to Shreyas Iyer, FOR, Looks to heave the ball away, the ball trims the leading edge and soars p for the man at third man to make a meal of that. The ball bonced p after landing in front of the man at third man - Pathan, who tipped the ball over the bar

4

Yadav to Shreyas Iyer, FOR, poor ball, tickled away past the man at short fine leg and back-to-back bondaries get Delhi off a to a good start in this over

6

Yadav to Samson, SIX, Bang!! Boom!! Short ball and the batsman transfers his weight ever so slightly to thwack the ball over the on-side towards cow corner region for a hge six. That was almost lost in the clods

W

Yadav to Samson, ot Lbw!! The ball tails in and raps the batsman in front of the sticks. The mp had no hesitation in raising his finger. The batsman was trying to walk into the clip bt lost his balance in doing so and missed the fll, straight ball. End of another good knock from Samson, he contines to have a good season with the bat. Samson lbw b Yadav 60(38) [4s-4 6s-3]

4

to Pant, FOUR, drops it short does and the batsman scooters back to pounce on it. Munches the cut past the man at backward point to send the ball racing into the fence

W

to Pant, out Lbw!! That was full and straight from round the wicket and the batsman misses it to be out LBW. That was going down is what I feel. But the ball tailed in a touch and the batsman was falling over a bit to give the impression to the umpire that the ball struck the batter adjacent to the wickets. A lucky one for KOL there. Pant lbw b 6(4) [4s-1]

4

to Chris Morris, FOUR, short, wide, room, batsman cashes in. Opens the face of the blade and gets a four. Just used the pace of the bowler

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, that was an explosive drive from Shreyas Iyer. Full and wide, the batsman threw the kitchen sink piled with utensils to spear that between cover and mid-off. Iyer is getting a move-on

W

to Shreyas Iyer, out Lbw!! The full swinging in delivery does it again. A hint of reverse and the batsman again misses trying to play across the line of the sticks. He was as dead a as a dodo. That delivery was quick as well and didn't allow the batsman to bring his bat down in time. NCN vindicates his skipper's decision to bring him back. Shreyas Iyer lbw b 47(34) [4s-4 6s-1]

D

Yadav to Corey Anderson, no run, lucky is Corey Anderson! That was scooped back to the bowler who lets it pop out. Dolly of a catch it was as the batsman pushed it back on the clipped drive

D

Yadav to Corey Anderson, 1 run, shot back like a bullet by Corey Anderson and the bowler spills another one. This was a tough one and almost burst through the hands of the bowler. It was a flighted ball and the batsman found it in his radar and slapped it back with ferocity for it to be fluffed

W

to Corey Anderson, out Corey Anderson Run Out!! Corey Anderson finally runs out of luck and commits harakiri. Pushed the ball away with soft hands into the off-side and then yes-no, yes-no in the middle ensured both men were stranded mid-way. In the end, the ball was flicked up to the batter's end and the keeper did the rest to find Corey Anderson well short. Corey Anderson run out (Gambhir/Jackson) 2(5)

4

to Bawne, FOUR, full on the sticks, the batsman winds up for the heave and picks the delivery away into the on-side for a four. There was no one square on the on-side and a four to start the over

W

to Chris Morris, out Caught by Woakes!! Full delivery sliced away and Woakes in the deep came charging in and takes a great catch diving forward. That was full and again some tailing movement accompanied the ball. The batsman despite getting a meaty part of the bat on it failed to clear the man in the deep. In this sapping heat, Woakes putting in an effort like that speaks volumes of his fitness. Chris Morris c Woakes b 11(10) [4s-1]
