After a run-out controversy involving Delhi captain Pietersen, Rajasthan spinner Pravin Tambe struck twice in the 10th over of the match to peg back the hosts, who were going well till that moment in the match. While Pietersen was caught by Steven Smith near the boundary ropes, de Kock gave a return catch to the veteran spinner. Tambe did well to put his side back in the game.
In the fifth over, Vijay tried to loft Murali Vijay over the top and merely scooped it high in the air and was taken by Shane Watson at mid-off. Kevin Pietersen has walked out to bat and Quinton de Kock is in the centre. In six overs, Delhi are 46 for one. 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.
