Commentary (Delhi Daredevils innings)

Umesh Yadav is named the Man of the Match. That's it from us today. Tomorrow is a crucial clash between Mumbai and Kolkata. Do join us for that. Good bye till then!

So, Mohali need to win both their matches now to pose a chance of qualifying for the play-offs, while Delhi are through now.

Delhi actually won the match in the 18th over, when Awana conceded 15 runs even after having an initial superb spell of 3-0-7-3. At one stage, Delhi were 4-37. Naman Ojha and the experience of Mahela Jayawardena came handy to keep the chase alive. Late jitters were dismissed as Irfan Pathan struck three boundaries off Awana, and then it was just formalities in the penultimate over.

18.6 A Mahmood to M J'dena, FOUR! DELHI WIN BY FIVE WICKETS! Short in length, Jayawardena pulls it through mid-wicket. Handshakes all over. Delhi have QUALIFIED for the playoffs! 140/5

Fifty for Mahela Jayawardena!

18.4 A Mahmood to M J'dena, FOUR! That may have just sealed the match for Delhi. Fuller delivery, Jayawardena creams it tremendously well through covers. No need to run at all for that. 132/5

18.3 A Mahmood to I Pathan, Comes around the wicket and bowls full, Pathan eases it down through mid on to take one. 128/5

18.2 A Mahmood to M J'dena, Short outside off, Jayawardena makes room and cuts it straight to point. The fielder tumbles, that allows the batsmen to cross over. 127/5

18.1 A Mahmood to M J'dena, Chops it away straight to the man. 126/5

Azhar Mahmood will bowl the penultimate over.

17.6 P Awana to I Pathan, FOUR! 15 off the over! Awana changed the complexion of the match earlier on. Has he changed it again, against his side? Half-volley on the pads, Pathan flicks it well over mid-wicket. No one in the deep. 126/5

17.5 P Awana to I Pathan, FOUR! Excellent strike! Fuller outside off at 139.4 kph, Pathan gets under it and heaves it away over covers to send it one bounce into the ropes. 122/5

17.4 P Awana to I Pathan, Fuller down the leg side, once again Pathan swings it away through the same region, this time the man was quite square and he gets there with a dive. The throw is not full enough and Pathan rushes back inside the crease for the second. 118/5

17.3 P Awana to I Pathan, FOUR! That's the boundary Delhi need every over. Short in length, fine leg was up, Pathan gets it fine off him with a pull. 116/5

15.3 P Chawla to M J'dena, LBW SHOUT! The googly. Jayawardena steps ahead in defense but gets rapped on the pads. Huge shout but the umpire does not consider it. Replays show it was pitched just outside off. 103/5

Irfan Pathan walks in.

13.6 P Chawla to N Ojha, OUT! Chawla cannot get better luck than this. Serves a poor long hop, which was asking to be hit out of the ground. Ojha unveils the slog over mid-wicket, but gets more height than distance. Mandeep Singh takes it near the ropes. Chawla himself finds the funny side of it with a smile. 95/5

12.4 A Mahmood to N Ojha, DROPPED! Chawla is the culprit! Ojha mistimes his lofted shot straight to long on. Piyush Chawla tries it the Australian way, the reverse cup, but puts it down. One run conceded. 83/4

Commentary (Kings XI Punjab innings)

No bigger partnership than 29 runs and that sums up Mohali's batting for today. Hussey was the top-scorer with 40 runs, almost run-a-ball. Aaron and Yadav bowled well to take two and three wickets each. Should be an easy chase for Delhi unless Mohali spring up a miracle.

19.6 V Aaron to P Awana, The slower yorker outside off, Awana digs it back towards the bowler and the batsmen rob a single with Aaron's slight fumble. 136/8

19.5 V Aaron to D Hussey, Length delivery, heaved away over covers this time. Not well timed though for a run. 135/8

19.4 V Aaron to P Awana, Over-pitched outside off, smacked down to long off to rotate the strike. 134/8

19.3 V Aaron to D Hussey, Short and slow, Hussey pulls it through mid-wicket for one. 133/8

19.2 V Aaron to D Hussey, Looks to work it away but gets an inside edge on that. 132/8

19.1 V Aaron to P Awana, Short delivery, helped down through fine leg for one as his bottom hand gave away. 132/8

Umesh Yadav is named the Man of the Match. That's it from us today. Tomorrow is a crucial clash between Mumbai and Kolkata. Do join us for that. Good bye till then!
