Delhi Daredevils 31/0 (3) (de Kock 14*, R. Pant 16*)

Skipper Raina decides to bring himself to the attack. A quiet over, this — five singles and a double. Seven off this one.

Delhi Daredevils 24/0 (2) (de Kock 9*, R. Pant 15*)

Dhawal Kulkarni to bowl the second over. Wow! The ball’s racing off Pant’s bat here. Three fours — he flicks the first one off good length, a check-drive off the second and a square off the next one. He’s making it look easy.

Delhi Daredevils 10/0 (1) (de Kock 9*, R. Pant 1*)

Praveen’s bowling them short and de Kock’s finding it easy to work it on the leg side — two fours off this one. Super start by Delhi here.

Gujarat Lions 149/7 (20) (Ishan Kishan 2, R. Jadeja 36*)

Shami to bowl the last over. Jadeja welcomes him with a six over long on — he was waiting on the backfoot and has muscled it over the ropes. Shami’s mixing it up here, a lot of slower ones. And,Gujarat Lions finish at 149/5 at the end of 20 overs.

Gujarat Lions 138/6 (19) (James Faulkner 7, R. Jadeja 28*)

Death over specialist Morris to bowl the 19th over. He’s bowling it fast, straight and full. What an over! 2,1,2,1,2,W. He was consistently bowling it full and Faulkner, expecting another one, moves inside the line to play a ramp shot but doesn’t make any contact — that’s hit the leg stump on full. Super over!

Gujarat Lions 130/5 (18) (Dinesh Karthik 53, R. Jadeja 25*)

DK reaches his 50 in style, moves away and Shami follows him. Karthik waits on that and pulls it behind square leg for a boundary. OUT! DD strike at the right time, again! This time, it’s Karthik. He makes room but misses a straight ball — the ball kisses the bails. Shami’s in the middle of a terrific spell — at the end of three overs, he’s given away only 21 runs.

Gujarat Lions 123/4 (17) (Dinesh Karthik 49*, R. Jadeja 24*)

Jadeja’s going after Zak now — he’s hit the DD skipper over the ump’s head. And, another four! This time he waits on the backfoot, and punches the slower one behind point. And that’s forcing Zak to change his line, and bowls a wide. Zak’s almost got Jadeja off the last one — a slower one and Jadeja’s into the shot early. But Nadeem’s diving effort goes in vain.

Gujarat Lions 110/4 (16) (Dinesh Karthik 49*, R. Jadeja 13*)

Karthik’s on the charge here. A couple of 2s in the start of the over and Jadeja makes it an even better start to the over — drives one with some power behind it. Good over for GL, this — 12 runs came off it. With four overs more, can GL get to 150?

Gujarat Lions 99/4 (15) (Dinesh Karthik 44*, R. Jadeja 6*)

Shami’s here. And Jadeja gets going with a pull in front of square — it was a slower one and Jadeja’s happy with it. But he’s still struggling to score off the fuller ones. Only seven came off this one — Shami’s going at exactly seven per over.

Gujarat Lions 92/4 (14) (Dinesh Karthik 41*, R. Jadeja 2*)

Zak starts with a short one — a knuckle ball and DK’s got enough time to pull that one for a boundary. He’s playing it nicely here, 40 off 34 balls for the GL ‘keeper. But Jadeja’s finding it hard to rotate the strike — only a single, apart from the boundary.

Gujarat Lions 87/4 (13) (Dinesh Karthik 36*, R. Jadeja 2*)

Duminy to continue. He goes on the backfoot and thumps one in front of square — he remains the key for GL.

Gujarat Lions 81/4 (12) (Dinesh Karthik 31*, R. Jadeja 1*)

Another phase of rebuilding begins for DD. Zak brings himself to the attack and bowls a tight over. Only six off this one. They’ll get to 135 if the persist with the same scoring rate.

Gujarat Lions 75/4 (11) (Dinesh Karthik 26*, Suresh Raina 24)

DD’s looking to get through the overs quickly here. But GL’s also playing it sensible — they’re getting runs off every ball and dispatching the loose ones. OUT! Mishra gets Raina. The GL skipper makes his intention of stepping down the wicket early and Mishra’s seen that — bowls a wide one and Raina’s stranded in the middle. Super stuff, this.

Gujarat Lions 65/3 (10) (Dinesh Karthik 17*, Suresh Raina 23*)

Jean-Paul Duminy’s into the attack. The batsmen have recovered well after the terrible start but will look to stay in the centre till the 15th over at least. He’s coming around the wicket for Karthik. They’re doing it easy, in singles and doubles. Eight have come off this one — DD’s run rate’s still below 7.

Gujarat Lions 57/3 (9) (Dinesh Karthik 12*, Suresh Raina 20*)

The run rate’s climbing slowly — 6.8 now. Mishra bowls a tight over — everything’s full and bowled slow. The batsmen are happy taking singles.

Gujarat Lions 52/3 (8) (Dinesh Karthik 9*, Suresh Raina 18*)

Karthik improvises — moves away and plays a ramp shot. He’s made it look so simple — no fuss and effort but effective. Now, it’s Raina. He gets on top of the bounce and taps it with some confidence — the ball is placed in the gap and it’s a four. He’s persisting with this length — short and into the body of both the batsmen. DD make 13 runs in this one.

Gujarat Lions 39/3 (7) (Dinesh Karthik 3*, Suresh Raina 12*)

Leggie Amish Mishra’s here. He’s bowling them slow and getting the batsmen to stretch for runs. He’s started off well — only 4 of this one.

Gujarat Lions 35/3 (6) (Dinesh Karthik 1*, Suresh Raina 10*)

Shami will loook to continue the good work done by the other DD bowlers. Raina moves away and guides a short one over the thir man boundary — a much-needed six this! He needs to up the pace if he wants to persist with this length. Eight off this one.

Gujarat Lions 27/3 (5)

DD is losing the plot — they need group and rethink on their strategy. Morris continues and he’s bowling in the high 140s here. Karthik’s getting serious short ones here — Morris has him jumping and fending ones off his chest. Terrific over, this — only three off this.

Gujarat Lions 24/3 (4)

Now, both the openers are gone. Smith perishes, looking to smash the spinner out the park. Morris takes an easy catch at long-on. Two new batsmen — Suresh Raina and Aaron Finch — at the crease. And, he strike again, OUT! Finch’s stay at the middle is short — tries to sweep Nadeem’s arm ball but only manages to get top edge. Pant takes a simple one at short fine leg. A dream start for DD here.

Gujarat Lions 52/3 (8) (Dinesh Karthik 9*, Suresh Raina 18*)
