Delhi Daredevils scored 152 for four against the Rajasthan Royals in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 contest at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, Delhi. After winning the toss, Delhi chose to bat first and were led by Quinton de Kock to start with and JP Duminy then helped them finish well. It could have been a bigger score, but the Rajasthan bowlers hit back well after a good start and helped restrict Delhi.

There was some delightful batting early on with de Kock and Murali Vijay starting off well. Both batsmen were flicking with panache and seemed to be in great touch. While de Kock went on to score 42, Vijay was dismissed in the fifth over when he got a top-edge off James Faulkner for 13.

With Kevin Pietersen and de Kock in the centre, there was some exhilarating strokeplay on display. De Kock walked across his stumps with authority and placed them well behind square. The shot that stood out was when he smacked one over fine-leg for six. Pietersen also essayed some great shots. Tambe was driven through the covers and Rajat Bhatia was hit through point for four.

There was some controversy though. Early in his innings, Pietersen was run-out, but the umpire ruled it not out. Although Rajasthan got to know from their dug-out that the umpire had erred, there was no way Sanjay Hazare could have referred it now.

Rajasthan were hoping that Pietersen doesn’t hurt them and Tambe ensured they get back in the game when Delhi were looking good at the half-way stage. In the tenth over, Pietersen smacked one straight to long-on off Tambe and later, de Kock offered a return catch. Delhi were suddenly 71 for three in ten overs.

Dinesh Karthik and Duminy then came together and it wasn’t easy for them. Tambe and Bhatia maintained a leash over the bowling in the middle overs and did not let them get away. The leg-spinner finished with two for 26 in his four overs and it was yet another spell that showed his consistency. Karthik was dismissed for 12 and Kedar Jadhav came to the middle.

Both batsmen then played a more attacking hand at the end with both Duminy and Jadhav finding the boundaries. Duminy fell in the last over when he tried to hit a six, but was caught brilliantly by Bhatia in the deep. But Jadhav gave the finishing touch with a four and a six to take Delhi past 150. The last five overs went for 58 runs. Jadhav finished with 28 off 14 balls.

Brief scores:

Delhi Daredevils 152 for five in 20 overs (Quinton de Kock 42, JP Duminy 39; Pravin Tambe 2 for 26) vs Rajasthan Royals.
