KKR batting

20:06 IST Saturday, 19 April 2014

The umpires come out onto the field

Now the Delhi players are out

Dinesh Karthik is still leading the side

Gambhir and Jacques Kallis are the openers (as usual)

One wide off the first ball. Mohammad Shami is bowling

Edged and taken! Kallis is out second ball of the innings, edging to second slip.

KKR 1/1

Manish Pandey is the new batsman

5 wides. Shami sprays it wide down the leg side and it goes for 5 wides.

Cut away behind point for two

Gambhir now on strike for the first time

Another wide down the leg side, just its not 5 wides this time

Banged into the ground and Gambhir leaves it outside off.

Very long first over, but a wicket to cheer about for DD. 10/1

Oh. Pandey nearly played at an outswinger and then took his bat away, it hit the edge and nearly carried to slip

Tickled to point for no run

OUT. Another wicket. Gambhir dabs outside leg and is out caught in the slips. That was coming.

Gambhir is gone for a duck

KKR 11/2

Placing the leg slip there was genius. The plan worked.

KKR 11/2 after 2 overs

Pandey drives through the covers for two

Short and wide, Pandey clips it to third man for one

KKR 16/2 after 3 overs

Nathan Coulter-Nile into the attack, Manish Pandey lazily puts out his bat at the ball and doesn't get a nick.

Single to the off side

Robin Uthappa on strike

Quick single to mid off

KKR 18/2 after 4 overs

Shami continues

Nice shot through the on side for a ball of good length. One run

Another beautiful shot through the on side, Pandey gets two

Good delivery from Shami to end the over. Tucked the batsman up

Bowls the first ball short and it lands in no man's land for a single

Steered to third man for one

Pandey flashes but misses, no run

KKR 31/2 after 6 overs

Short again, but steered down to third man this time

Very wide and full, Uthappa smashes it through cover for four

KKR 44/2 after 7 overs

Pandey advances down Utthappa style, can only get a single on the on side

Short, slow ball, it came on very slowly, Pandey was through with the shot, it was a difficult chance for short mid on and he spooned it.

Smashed to deep mid wicket for one

KKR 50/2 after 8 overs

It's time for the strategic timeout

Jimmy Neesham concedes two off his first ball

Two singles follow

Two more singles follow

Oh. They almost ran a non-existent single and Utthappa almost got run out.

Unadkat is back

Almost a run out again. Pandey was strolling back for the second and was miles out but the bowler could not collect the throw

Another single milked to the off side

Bludgeoned down the ground but the long on fielder dives to cut it off the straight boundary

Shakib Al Hasan comes in, obviously with a script to be assertive against the bowling

Utthappa reverse sweeps and the fielder makes a hash of it, it goes for four

KKR 82/3 after 12 overs


21:09 IST Saturday, 19 April 2014

Good lord. What has happened here!. The bowler tried to stop a quick single. He first misfielded. Then he hurled the ball wide of the keeper, who threw up his hands in frustration. A boundary results for no reason.

SIX! Shakib Al Hasan goes straight down the ground and it's into the stands.

Shahbaz Nadeem is taking a beating tonight

KKR 93/3 after 13 overs

Jean-Paul Duminy has been introduced

Utthappa gives room to smash that, but barely gets bat on it in the end

Dropped, or was it short? Robin smashed this to long on, where the fielder put in a desperate dive to catch it, but it just fell short.

Shakib waltzes down the track and lifts Duminy over extra cover inside out. The fielder in the deep did a really good job to save the four. Two runs.

Delhi have fielded well so far

KKR 99/3 after 14 overs

Shakib shimmies down the track. The bowler bowls it wide and Shakib can barely reach it. Gets an edge to third man.

100 up for KKR

SIX! Hit straight down the ground for six

Dismissed over the midwicket boundary for four. Almost went for six.

Yorked and he still gets a single to square leg. Oh, the wicketkeeper fails to collect the throw and then they try to run a second off the overthrow. There was then an appeal for run out which was referred to the third ump, but he was in.

KKR 112/3 after 15 overs.

Big over, 13 off it.

Scooped away to the square leg boundary for four.

Another scoop over square leg for four. Uthappa is getting into his groove big time

Yorker thumped away to the off side

Last ball gets slogged to long off for one. KKR 124/3 after 16 overs

From here, KKR will be disappointed at anything under 170

It's time for Delhi to regroup, and so we have a timeout


21:28 IST Saturday, 19 April 2014

Jaidev Unadkat bowling his last over, single first ball

Shakib makes room and goes over extra cover again. Just a single.

Inswinging delivery outside off stump, half volley. Careened for four through point.

The faster they come, the faster they go

Slapped to long off and the fielder almost let it go through to the boundary

In the blockhole and Shakib can only get a single

Out. Uthappa is out caught on the deep midwicket boundary. Good innings from him. 55 off 41.

KKR 132/4 after 17 overs

Yusuf Pathan lumbers out to the crease. A fast bowler is on, which is not so good for Pathan

But Pathan smashes it to the midwicket boundary first bal, where the fielder tries very hard in vain to stop it

Single to long on

Slower, short delivery and Shakib pulls it to long leg for one

Ugly hoick from Pathan lands in between two fielders

Short and going down leg, Shakib pulls successfully this time for four.

KKR 144/4 after 18 overs

Mohammad Shami is back

What a shot by Shakib. Reverse-scooped a slower delivery for four

Yorker, but on off stump. Pathan digs it out and rushes for the single. 150 up.

Two balls left.

Almost a yorker, dug out to deep long on

Single straight down the ground

KKR 154/4 after 19 overs

Wide off the first ball. Nathan Coulter-Nile is bowling the last over

Single off the second ball, now Pathan on strike

Very good bowling, better fielding. Perfect yorker, Shakib dug it out. The bowler dived to stop the ball passing him. Dot ball.

Out. Full length ball from Nile, Pathan got down on one knee and tried to send it into orbit. Instead he inside edged it onto the stumps.

KKR 157/5

The new batsman, SK Yadav tries the weirdest reverse sweep and misses.

Now a chest-high full toss, the batsman tries another wild scoop. The ball gets top edged over short third man for four

Last ball is a low full toss. Yadav reverse-scoops it to the third man boundary.

That was some innovative batting in the end. A very good last over was spoilt by a beamer and some strange but effective shots from Yadav.

KKR have scored a competitive 166/5 thanks to a good batting effort.

Delhi innings

One wicket has fallen. Murli Vijay was run out without scoring.

Vinay Kumar is having a tough time with the ball

Karthik flays Vinay Kumar over the off side for four

Brisk start from Delhi, athough they have lost a wicket

Delhi are playing aggressively from the start

Agarwal's brief blitz is over

Vinay Kumar continues.

Thrashed to long leg for two

Single to short cover

Single to deep midwicket

Four. Shakib bowls outside off, Taylor takes it from there and slog sweeps it to the square leg boundary

Almost a run out. Taylor tried to pierce the off side field again, and failed. He set off for a single but was sent back just in time

Cut straight to cover

KKR 49/2 after 6 overs

End of the powerplay

Kallis is into the attack

Four. His easy pace gets flicked away to fine leg by Karthik

Kallis bowls a little short and on middle and leg, Karthik lofts it over square leg for six!

Again the wrong line, but this is just a single

Bowled. Now this goes straight through the gate and Ross Taylor is gone. That was a shot very unlike him.

DD 60/3 after 7 overs

Shakib continues, Karthik scores a single

Down the track and played to deep mid wicket for one. Duminy is in.

DD 66/3 after 8 overs

Karthik misses a low, fast delivery from Kallis

Inswinger of good length on middle stump, Karthik misses and that will be a leg bye

103 to win off 70 balls

Steered away for one to third man

Single to long on for one

Driven to long on for one. DD 71/3 after 9 overs

And it's time for the timeout

Piyush Chawla comes into the attack, now this could go either way

Slower short delivery pulled away in an ugly manner for one

Oh. Duminy was almost stumped. He missed a straight ball from Chawla and his foot barely made it into the crease.

SIX. Karthik goes big on the on side, on one knee. Six over long leg.

Four. Short and moving away and Karthik latches onto it to send it to the point boundary.

DD 84/3 after 10 overs

Dinesh Karthik is playing a gem. 42 off 28.

The wily Sunil Narine has finally been given the ball. 

Cut away by Duminy and they get a quick single

Punched away to deep square leg for one

Oops. That kept low and Duminy nearly played on.

Delhi 88/3 after 11 overs

Huge appeal for LBW and in all honesty that looked plumb, but was turned down. Maybe an inside edge.

Single to short third man

Great shot. Duminy scoops a slow ball over the keeper for four. Dilscoop...almost.

Delhi 97/3 after 12 overs

70 needed off 8 overs

Swept away to square leg for one

Single to short mid wicket

DD 104/3 after 13 overs

Shakib Al Hasan gets hit by Dinesh Karthik for four

Two runs

Terrible misfield in the deep and another boundary results

Delhi 117/3 after 14 overs

13 runs off that last over.

OUT. Dinesh karthik is out LBW. He tried the reverse sweep and was trapped in front. Narine gets a big fish.

DD 118/4

Edged for four! Nothing the bowler or keeper can do about that

They are still trying the reverse sweep. This time it fetches the new man Manoj Tiwary a single.

Wide outside off stump, Duminy lets it go but is dismayed to see that it is not called wide.

DD 123/4 after 15 overs

Morne Morkel is back

Tiwary mistimes a cut to the sweeper

Duminy gets beaten by a ball that kicks up

OUT. Manoj Tiwary swished at a wide and short delivery outside off stump and found deep third man

Delhi 127/5 after 16 overs

Strategic timeout time. Both teams need it. Delhi a bit more.

Jimmy Neesham is the new batsman

Chawla comes back and bowls two dot balls. These are crucial dots.

Tucked away to the on side for one off the third ball.

Pushed into the leg side for one

The pressure is broken. Six off the fifth ball as as Neesham charges down the track and lofts it over long off.

Now he misses a leg break and looks confused

Delhi 135/5 after 17 overs

Morkel to bowl his last over. 

Duminy swings and misses the first ball, 32 needed off 17

What a shot and what good fielding. Duminy picked a wide yorker out into the gap between gully and third man. The fielder made a really good stop. Duminy lost his bat and ran two without it.

Four! Smashed into the long off boundary for four

Too short and also called a wide. Perhaps more for line than for height as Duminy ducked.

SIX! This could be the clinching blow. Duminy bashed a short ball into the square leg boundary for six.

Six more. That is an astonishing shot. The ball was way outside off, and slow. Duminy followed it, then Dilscooped it over fine leg for six!

Now scooped over the wicketkeeper for four!

Delhi 156/5 after 18 overs

This was surely THE defining over of the match. What a display of batting by Duminy.

Great ball by Narine and Neesham missed it completely.

Another attempt at a reverse sweep. Duminy gets into a tangle but gets a leg bye.

Duminy tried to go big over the leg side and missed

Delhi 161/5 after 19 overs

Piyush Chawla to bowl the last over, Neesham misses.

OUT! Neesham has holed out to deep mid wicket and the match is not over yet folks.

That was a very unnecessary shot

Delhi 161/6

SIX! Duminy does it for the Devils! Launches Chawla into the leg side boundary for six!

What a game. And how good was Duminy?
