Commentary (Delhi Daredevils innings)

Virender Sehwag is named the Man of the Match. That's it from all of us then. Switch to the other tab to catch all the action from the match between Kolkata and Hyderabad. Will be back shortly.

Virender Sehwag was in full flow today and he blasted 87 runs off just 48 balls. Jayawardena and Pietersen played along but it was Sehwag's show all the way. The Pune bowlers did not get enough assistance from the strip. On top of it, the bowling was just below par. Inspite of Ganguly winning the toss and electing to bat, the strip seemed to be favouring the team batting second.

Delhi do have their revenge here and they have done it in comprehensive style. Pune's batting was mainly held by Manish Pandey and Robin Uthappa. Buy they did not have enough runs on the board to trouble Delhi.

Sourav Ganguly himself comes to bowl now.

5.6 A Nehra to K Pietersen, SIX! That's superb now. Full length at 128.7 kph, Kevin Pietersen stays inside and clobbers it over mid on. It reaches the ropes on the full. With this form of his, the match may not last 20 overs. 61/1

5.5 A Nehra to K Pietersen, FOUR! KP style! Just a touch short, Kevin Pietersen comes down and just drives it down the ground. Excellent timing on that. 55/1

5.4 A Nehra to V Sehwag, Fuller length delivery, drilled down to mid off to take a quick single. 51/1

Luke Wright comes on now. His first match today.

2.5 A Thomas to V Sehwag, OUT! Jayawardena has to depart now in an unfortunate situation. Sehwag flicks it to Wright at mid-wicket. A couple of 'yes, no' shouts and both the batsmen are mid-way.

Commentary (Pune Warriors India innings)

Pune had won the toss, elected to bat first and did not live up to the expectations. Just 50 runs had come off the first ten overs, where Ryder and Ganguly crumbled earlier on. It was left for Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey to hold up the innings and they did it exceedingly well. Pandey, in not so good touch, showed some genuine shots from his arsenal for his 80 runs. Delhi have a powered-pack batting line up, but can Ganguly's side be written off? Stay tuned to find out.

19.6 M Morkel to M Pandey, Short and stopping on, Pandey clips it down to mid on and runs well to take two. 146/2

19.5 M Morkel to M Pandey, FOUR! That's sweet timing. Fuller outside off, Pandey just gets his bat down and squirts it past point. Excellent cricket shot. 144/2

19.4 M Morkel to R Uthappa, In the yorker zone outside off, Pandey has a go, the ball goes on a bump and moves down. Ojha does extremely well to pouch it. Delhi appeal for the catch while the batsmen cross over. Replays confirm that the ball had hit the ground first. So just a run. 140/2

19.3 M Morkel to R Uthappa, Full and slow at 127.6 kph, Uthappa slogs and it skies into the empty mid on area for a couple. 139/2

19.2 M Morkel to M Pandey, Waits on and just dabs it down to third man for one. 137/2

19.1 M Morkel to M Pandey, FOUR BYES! Once again Morkel is unlucky. Full down the leg side, Pandey flicks and misses. The ball just kisses his boot and goes down past the diving Ojha. Byes given, in fact. 136/2

18.6 U Yadav to R Uthappa, Well wide outside off, Uthappa sets up for the scoop first up, but then dabs it past point for two. 132/2

18.5 U Yadav to R Uthappa, FOUR! Sublime that. Fuller outside off, Uthappa clears out and whacks it over covers. They should aim to touch 150 now. 130/2

18.4 U Yadav to R Uthappa, Well wide outside off, crossing the wide guidelines. But Uthappa himself had reached the wide line and hence the umpire does not give it. Excellent decision from the umpire. 126/2

18.3 U Yadav to M Pandey, Punches it on the off side for a single. 126/2

18.2 U Yadav to M Pandey, Fuller outside off, Pandey initially aims to go leg side. But the ball was in the yorker zone well wide outside off, hence Pandey is forced to block. 125/2

17.2 M Morkel to R Uthappa, FOUR! Unlucky there, Morkel. Follows the batsman and hurls in a steaming yorker at 143.8 kph, Pandey backs away and only gets a chinese cut through his legs to fine leg. 115/2

17.1 M Morkel to M Pandey, Length delivery down the leg side, Pandey chips it down for one. 111/2

Morne Morkel comes on.

16.6 U Yadav to R Uthappa, Looks to work it away but only gets a bottom edge on that. 110/2

16.5 U Yadav to M Pandey, Again the same ball outside off, Pandey jams it down to Morkel at third man to jog across. 110/2

16.4 U Yadav to M Pandey, FOUR! Excellent cricket skills. Low full toss outside off at 143.7 kph, Pandey just about manages to squirt it past third man. 109/2

16.3 U Yadav to M Pandey, FOUR! Nice shot. Short of a length delivery at 142.2 kph, Pandey pulls it over mid-wicket. Minimum of fuss there. 105/2

100 partnership!

6.4 P Negi to R Uthappa, FOUR! That's a bad ball. A rank long hop outside off at 87.2 kph, Uthappa thrashes it past a diving cover fielder and that's enough to meet the ropes. 34/2

5.6 A Nehra to K Pietersen, SIX! That's superb now. Full length at 128.7 kph, Kevin Pietersen stays inside and clobbers it over mid on. It reaches the ropes on the full. With this form of his, the match may not last 20 overs. 61/1

5.5 A Nehra to K Pietersen, FOUR! KP style! Just a touch short, Kevin Pietersen comes down and just drives it down the ground. Excellent timing on that. 55/1

5.6 M Morkel to R Uthappa, Fullish length outside off, Uthappa tries the on drive and the ball goes off the inside edge, hits his pads and rolls down towards square leg for one. The stifled LBW appeal is turned down. 28/2

4.5 L Wright to K Pietersen, Fuller outside off and slow as well at 113.6 kph, driven down towards mid off. 46/1
