FROM! CAUGHT! The team in red is ecstatic and why not? They were on the back foot in the Powerplay but they did a good job removing the two openers. Udana strikes, and the gamble to pick him up is now worn out for Kohli. Udana throws a good length ball around the center, Dhawan makes some space and rents it out to the long region, but his timing isn’t the best on this occasion as he’s running right down the tall man’s throat. Moeen Ali does not drop these catches.
9.3 overs (2 runs)
A slower one this time outside, Dhawan waits for it and tosses it over the coverage area, but the timing isn’t quite right as Finch runs in and cuts it off. The batters gather a pair.
9.2 overs (1 run)
Behind a length ball around the leg, Iyer jumps and crawls under the ball and works it towards the square leg area for another single.
Isuru Udana is active again. 1-0-13-0 so far.
9.1 overs (1 run)
Throws a full length ball around the middle and leg, Dhawan works this back to Udana and it comes off his foot and goes to the man halfway. A single taken.
The Delhi coach, Ricky Ponting, is up for a chat. Is happy with the start of his team and says the focus in their last 2 matches was to get a good and fast score in the Powerplay. Stays in Prithvi Shaw’s class and his strengths against spin and pace. Ponting notes about Shaw changing his technique a bit, but says that as a coach you don’t want to look at things too much. He adds that Shaw himself has decided to step up on a tree stump more and what works best for him should be left that way. Furthermore, says that different people have different trigger movements. For example, people in Australia like to be ahead of the game, while in other countries they like to play back and play late. As a batsman, he says that you need to have a clear mind and play freely, taking full control of the game as the T20 format is the hardest to play. Finally, he says, as coaches, they are here to help batsmen experience exactly that kind of environment.

8.5 overs (1 run)
Back from a long leg drop, Dhawan pushes this up to the deep square leg area, but it lands safely and the batters take a single.
8.4 overs (0 Run)
BOUNCER! Siraj sees Dhawan coming across the lane and he does well to bowl this bouncer. Dhawan is just diving among these.

Iyer has another good length ball around the middle and leg, and he slides this into the square leg area to switch ends with Dhawan.
8.2 overs (0 Run)
A misfield could have gotten Delhi a run, but they decide not to. Good length around the middle, Iyer flashes this to the man in the middle of the wicket and he fumbles but the batters don’t go for the single.
8.1 overs (1 run)
About a good length round off, Dhawan works this on the ground, but the man half way through it dives well and stops it. Taken a run.

BUMPER! Siraj goes for the bouncer this time and Iyer ducks under this one and leaves him alone.
6.5 overs (4 runs)
FOUR! ANXIOUS! What a shot to start by Iyer! Iyer doesn’t have a good length ball around the leg, but he hits this fine to the deep square leg area and the timing is right and will set him a boundary.
Captain Shreyas Iyer comes in at number 3 and replaces Shaw.
6.4 overs (0 Run)
FROM! CAUGHT! Siraj has struck to Bangalore and the very dangerous Shaw will now walk back. This is the start Kohli wanted from Siraj when he handed him the ball and he has not disappointed. Siraj throws a back of a length ball around the middle and leg, Shaw looks for the pull but it comes out of his gloves and de Villiers with the gloves does nothing wrong. Shaw will be extremely disappointed as he would like to grow up and move on, but he will have to walk back.
6.3 overs (1 run)
On a good length outside, Dhawan is working this towards the coverage area for a single.
6.2 overs (4 runs)
FOUR! Not a great start by Siraj and Dhawan welcomes him with some style! This is another half pitcher around the center, Dhawan is pulling hard here and he will cross the fence deep in the middle. Crack.
6.1 overs (0 Run)
Back of a long ball around center, Dhawan crawls underneath but bounces just a few paces away, Shaw comes running for the single but is bounced back by Dhawan. Siraj has a shy at the bowler’s end, but misses.
Mohammed Siraj is on the attack.
Time for an early DRINKS break. Delhi got off to a good start here, attacking almost every bowler except Sundar. The reason for this is that Sundar hardly leaves room for the batsmen to capitalize. But now, with the field spread out, the spinners will retreat to pick wickets. Watch out for Moeen Ali who has an uncanny knack.
5.6 overs (1 run)
Flatter ball around center to finish and Dhawan shoots this from his back foot to the square leg area for another single. Delhi got off to a really good start, collecting 63 runs without losing a wicket at the end of the Powerplay.

5.4 overs (4 runs)

5.3 overs (2 runs)
Another short ball around center, Shaw pulls it hard to the square-legged area and will take a few more. Great run and hit through these two.
