End of DC’s innings

Rabada run out!! A wicket off the final ball of the innings. Fuller length that’s cutting back in, Rabada misses the slog once again. They are eager to snatch a bye. De Kock quickly lobs the ball to the bowler and Bumrah does the rest. Under-arms a throw and hits the wood. DC- 110/9 after 20 overs

4.59pm
DC go 8 down

Boult gets his third. Ashwin looks to loft it down the ground, doesn’t connect it off the middle, it flies off the toe end of the bat in the air, Krunal runs to his left from long on, Pollard too was charging towards the ball but then Krunal pouches it safely and goes tumbling. Good call and communication between the two fielders.

4.57pm

Mumbai Indians won’t mind these singles. Krunal cleverly altered his lines and lengths with the batsmen using their feet and gave away just 4 runs. Don’t know what DC are trying to do with just two overs to go. DC- 96/7 after 18 overs

4.54pm

Both the batsmen looked to employ sweep against Chahar in that over. Praveen Dubey got down and swept one fine for a couple, but mistimed one off the third ball. Chahar mixed them up well with leg spinners and googlies in that over. 5 runs off it. DC-92/7 after 17 overs

4.50pm

Coulter-Nile has used his pace variations well to adjust to the track. Ashwin hit a six and a two in that over but it was another over where DC lost a wicket and it was the crucial wicket of Hetmyer. 9 runs and a wicket off it. DC-87/7 after 16 overs

4.44pm
Hetmyer gone; Strategic Timeout taken

4.42pm

Chahar missed his line off the second ball in the over and Hetmyer tucked it past short fine leg for a four. But apart from that blip, Chahar was disciplined with his lines and lengths. He gave away just one more single in the over and ended up giving just five runs. DC- 78/6 after 15 overs

4.38pm

Bumrah strays in line and Harshal Patel whips it past mid-wicket for four. But Bumrah has the last laugh – he gets him out lbw off the last ball. Bumrah in the middle of a dream spell! He is ripping through Delhi’s middle-order. Four runs and a wicket. DC-73/6 after 14 overs

4.37pm
Bumrah on fire!

Harshal Patel walks back to the pavilion. Good length delivery outside off, angling in and goes straight on. Harshal Patel stays in his crease and looks to flick, he misses and gets his high on the pads. The umpire lifts his finger on the appeal. With no reviews left, he had no option bit to walk back to the hut.

4.34pm

Rahul Chahar continues. Just six runs from that over and nearly a run-out. Hetmyer sprinting back for a second off the final ball; a direct hit would have been curtains for the Caribbean. A couple of braces and as many singles from that over. DC-69/5 after 13 overs

4.31pm
Big over for MI

Bumrah removes Stoinis and Pant in the same over. Shimron Hetmyer is in next along with Harshal Patel who comes in to the crease after Pant’s dismissal. Six runs and two wickets from that over. DC-63/5 after 12 overs

4.29pm
Bumrah strikes for the second time in the over

It’s a good length delivery outside off, angling in, it jags back in further. Pant stays in his crease and looks to tuck it to the leg side but misses. He is trapped right in front. The umpire raises his finger on the appeal. Pant opts for a review only to see three reds on the big screen. It was hitting middle and leg. FOW-62/5.

4.26pm

Stoinis’ struggles continue. He goes for 2. It’s that man Bumrah who gets his first wicket. Hits that hard length again. It tails away after landing. Stoinis, with his feet rooted to the ground, feels for it and gets an outside edge to the keeper who at first fumbles but then grabs it safely.

 

4.20pm

Shreyas Iyers stumped by Quinton de Kock. A flighted delivery and Iyer wanted to play it across the line. Misses it and de Kock is quick enough to do the rest. Replay shows Iyer’s back leg was in the air. Third umpire signals out, Iyers walks back.

4.01pm

Krunal Pandya is back into the attack. Good start to the over – just three off the first three. Pant and Iyer need to target a bowler or two. Just five off the first five balls. And a single to end the over – just six from it in the end. DC-28/2 after 7 overs

3.56pm
End of Powerplay!

DC-22/2 after 6 overs

3.53pm

Boult continues. Caught behind appeal off the first ball. Iyer the batter in question. Pollard reviews. No edge detected on the replays. Iyer survives. Boult has been superb with the new ball, especially in the Powerplays. Has repeatedly got breakthroughs as has been the case today. Shaw was Boult’s 12th wicket in the PP! Excellent over again. One run from it. DC-19/2 after 5 overs

3.49pm

Good start from Yadav. He bowled tight lines and on good lengths. Pant and Iyer were cautious and dealt in just singles. Just three runs off the over. DC-18/2 after 4 overs

3.44pm

Another successful over from Boult. Prithvi pulled one for a four behind square leg but then went for a swing across the line and got an outside edge over slips for a streaky four. He went for one shot too many again but Boult cleverly adjusted his length, bowled it short and Prithvi got a top edge on his pull charging down the track, de Kock made no mistake. 8 runs and a wicket. DC-15/2 after 3 overs

3.42pm
Boult strikes again!

Boult has cleaned up both the openers within power play. Short one from boult, Shaw went for the pull and got a top edge. Went straight up in the air and taken by Quinton de Kock.

3.40pm

A decent start from Krunal. Prithvi looked a bit shaky. He went for a slog sweep but got a top edge which fell well short of the deep square leg fielder. Shreyas then lofted one over mid off for a four. Krunal bowled a wide down the leg side but apart from that he was tight in that over. 6 runs off it. DC-7/1 after 2 overs

3.34pm

Dhawan walks back on 0. Slightly wide and Dhawan tries to open the face of his bat. Unfortunate for the batsman as his shot falls right in front of Suryakumar Yadav, who takes a good low catch. FOW-1/1
