Pune Warriors India bowlers kept it tight and scalped three wickets halfway through the Delhi Daredevils innings in their Indian Premier League match at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi.

Mitchell Marsh dismissed Mathew Wade for 11 when he was looking to rebuild Delhi innings with Colin Ingram after the early loses.

James Faulkner provided the first breakthrough when he dismissed the dangerous Delhi opener James Warner for 19.

Before his dismissal, Warner freed up his arms to hit a four and a six in the fourth over of the innings off Alfonso Thomas. The left-handed Delhi opener then welcomed Faulkner with a six on the first ball of his spell, but missed to pick a slow yorker.

Delhi made a slow start after captain James Hopes won the toss and chose to bat first, as the first two overs saw only three runs being scored.
