Pietersen was actually run-out in the seventh over. A ball lobbed off his pads and fell on the leg-side close to the wicketkeeper. Pietersen took a couple of paces down and tried to get back. But by then Samson had hit the stumps and the umpire gave him not out. However, replays showed that it was out. But, it was not referred.

This could come back to haunt Rajasthan later on. Pietersen smashed Pravin Tambe for a four through the off-side in the next over. Later, de Kock walked across the stumps to Rajat Bhatia and slammed him behind square on the leg-side.
Earlier, Shane Watson won the toss and elected to bat. Delhi made one change as Rahul Sharma came into the side in place of Laxmi Ratan Shukla. On the other hand, Dhawal Kulkarni replaced Iqbal Abdulla for Rajasthan.
