Commentary (Delhi Daredevils innings)

AB de Villiers has been named the Man of the Match for his innings earlier which turned out to be a match-winning one. It actually led a fine recovery to help Bangalore post a competitive total. That's it from this game. Tune in for the second game of the day between Hyderabad and Chennai.

Bangalore have started off their season 5 campaign with a win at home. They had a decent target to defend but their experienced bowling attack did the trick which was complimented brilliantly by some great fielding. Muralidaran bowled a beautiful spell in his first game for Bangalore. Sehwag's failure would have cost Delhi this game but they needed someone to stay on and play a big knock. It didn't happen today.

0.5 I Pathan to C Pujara, Back of a length delivery, on off, Pujara pats it down on the off side and they cross for a quick single. The fielder turns and goes for the direct hit at the non-striker's end. He misses and the fielder backing up fumbles to allow another run. 3/0

0.4 I Pathan to C Pujara, Oh, good delivery! Pitches on middle and swings back in to strike Pujara high on the pads. Pathan was excited but that was too high. 1/0

0.3 I Pathan to C Pujara, Wide outside off stump, the batsman leaves it alone. 1/0

0.2 I Pathan to A McDonald, Good length on off, nips in and McDonald turns it down to fine leg off the inside edge for a single. 1/0
