Delhi won the toss and are fielding first in this MUST WIN game.

Mumbai 5/0 after 1
come on DD come on DD come oooooon lets beat the daylights out of Mumbai pretenders!!!
25/0 after 3 overs, McGrath's been hit for a coup,e of 4s by Tendu and Jaya. DD decided to give a debut to a new Aussie bowler, Geeves. Not really a clever move considering he's bowling to one of the batsman whos in the best form so far!
Bif over there from Jaya, hitting Geeves for 14 in 3 balls! 40 after 4
6.2 Maharoof to Tendulkar, 2 wides, stumping chance! He slides wide down the legstump and Tendulkar trods out of his crease as he tries to flick it, Karthik fumbles and lets it slip through


69/0 in 7th over
6.6 Maharoof to Jayasuriya, no run, Appeal: He fails to pick the slower ball and gets into the pull rather early, Maharoof was super confident the ball went through straight and struck him on the pads in line with the stump but the umpire reckoned he got an inside edge, that was mighty close :88:

Finally Tendulker gone, Mahesh get his man!!!!!!! 70/1
Now just gotta get Jaya out!!
Dwayne goes, but we want Jaya hit-man Surya!!!!!!!!

Get this butcher outttt!!!!!!!
umpires are being too harsh on DD. couple of wide calls unfair, and 2 plum lbw not given
Magnificent over from Manesh there, just the 2 off it and the wicket! 109/2 after 13


Jaya Gone, Dilshan And Mishra U Beauty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Another 1 bites the dust!!!!!!!

114/4 Nayar gone, and Geeves gets his first wicket
Pollock bowled by Maharoof after getting hit for a 4. 143/5 in 18th over
17 runs off McGrath's final over, having an off day today. 162/5 with 1 over to go
3 wickets, 2 sixes and 2 singles off the last over, DD will require 177 runs in their 20 overs to stay in the IPL!

8 off the last over
8 is not an easy number
not too much, but not that little either
Yes. Back to back 4s by Maharoof. What a legend he is. Asif is nowhere near as valuable in this format.
"Dinesh Karthik's heroics, and Maharoof's towards the end, have given Delhi a **** at the semi-finals." On cricinfo. See it before they fix it.

OK they've changed it to "Shot" after taking a crash course of vowels.
