21:14 IST Monday, 19 May 2014

How much can Delhi score in last 5 overs, with Maxwell and Miller in Punjab's ranks, they should be aiming to somewhere near 180-200

Hendericks comes back

OUT,  low full toss, JP tries to heave that one out of the park, but only manages to find Maxwell on long-on boundary, out for 17

Kedhar Jadhav is the news batsman out in the middle

Sandeep Sharma comes back into the attack

OUT, Maxwell is everywhere, length ball from the bowler, it was there to be hit, but Jadhav hits it only as far as deep midwicket, where Maxwell takes a simple catch, out for 0

Mayank Agarwal comes in

SIX, UP AND OVER ! lenght ball over the wicket, Mayank makes it room and crisply times it over the cover boundary

From 140/2 to 164/7, Delhi lost 5 wickets in last 12 balls

Delhi Daredevils 164/7 in 20 overs

 

 

From 140/2 in 16 overs to 164/7 in 20 overs, this sums up the scenario of Delhi Daredevils in this entire IPL, they have had starts but failed to make a mark, earlier after being put onto bat first Kevin Pietersen and Dinesh Karthik's blizzard propelled the Delhi's score, at one stage they  were cruising but a good come back from Punjab bowlers to restrict them to a less destructive total, though 164 is really good on this track but they could have got more, with the likes of Maxwell and Miller in Punjba's batting line-up, this is a very small score, but Delhi will do their best to make a game out of this one.
