DD 137/3 | Overs 17.5 | Warner 66*, Rohrer 10*

Ben Rohrer wants to finish this ASAP as he carts Yusuf Pathan over deep mid-wicket for maximum! He finishes things up with a flick off the pads for a single. Comfortable win for DD in the end.

DD win by 7 wickets with 13 balls to spare.

DD 126/3 | Overs 17 | Warner 65*, Rohrer 0* OUT! Chand 37(39)

David Warner gives himself room and slashes Brett Lee over extra-cover for half a dozen. Unmukt Chand then goes for the big pull, but on this large Raipur ground can only find deep square-leg. A good innings from Chand comes to an end.

Delhi need 11 runs from 18 balls.

DD 114/2 | Overs 16 | Chand 36*, Warner 52*

David Warner brings up his fourth half-century of IPL 6 with a well-placed pull wide of long-on, before flicking L Balaji off the hips for four more square of the wicket. A nasty collision follows between Unmukt Chand’s bat and Manvinder Bisla’s neck; the latter looks to have taken a hard blow and is flattened for a while. KKR’s night gets worse as Sumit Narwal spills the simplest of catches at third-man.

Delhi need 23 runs from 24 balls.

DD 100/2 | Overs 15 | Chand 33*, Warner 43*

Sunil Narine completes his typical economical spell with figures of none for 14. Unfortunately for KKR, the wickets column — the most important today — is empty.

Delhi need 37 runs from 30 balls.

DD 96/2 | Overs 14 | Chand 30*, Warner 41*

Unmukt Chand executes a cheeky upper cut off the bowling of Jacques Kallis and gets four behind the keeper. The Daredevils are picking up their rate now, as the two batsmen look well settled in.

DD 85/2 | Overs 13 | Chand 22*, Warner 40*

Sunil Narine bowls one short and wide outside off, as Warner makes room and cuts it to the deep point fence for four. Delhi are cruising along here.

DD 78/2 | Overs 12 | Chand 21*, Warner 34*

Unmukt Chand pulls Rajat Bhatia to the deep mid-wicket fence for his second boundary. David Warner then lofts the medium-pacer towards long-on where Jacques Kallis gets his fingers to the ball, but pops it over the fence for six. 15 come from the over.

DD 63/2 | Overs 11 | Chand 14*, Warner 26*

Delhi Daredevils take seven runs off L Balaji’s third over and move slowly towards their target. As things stand, the Daredevils should get to an easy win.

DD 56/2 | Overs 10 | Chand 11*, Warner 22*

Medium-pacer Rajat Bhatia  comes into the attack and bowls a good over, save for the penultimate delivery where he gives Davey Warner width. The Australian gets a late cut in and sends it to the fence. KKR keeper Manvinder Bisla then misses a stumping off the final delivery. That’s the second chance KKR have let slip — a crime when you’re defending such a low total.

DD 50/2 | Overs 9 | Chand 11*, Warner 16*

Sunil Narine comes back for a second over and brilliantly mixes it up. Unmukt Chand just about manages to hold on to his wicket. Just one run comes from the over.

DD 49/2 | Overs 8 | Chand 11*, Warner 15*

Jacques Kallis bowls short to David Warner and the Australian powerfully pulls it into the stands for six. Massive hit, that! 11 runs come off the over.

DD 38/2 | Overs 7 | Chand 8*, Warner 7*

Brett Lee comes in for a third over and concedes just four runs. Delhi showing no signs of haste, which is how it should be.

DD 34/2 | Overs 6 | Chand 5*, Warner 6*

Sunil Narine comes into the attack and bowls a tight over. David Warner has to take the responsibility of helping Delhi shake off this early wobble with young and inexperienced Unmukt Chand at the other end.

DD 32/2 | Overs 5 | Chand 4*, Warner 5* OUT! Jayawardene 5(8)

KKR pick up one more! Mahela Jayawardene edges L Balaji to first slip where Jacques Kallis takes an easy catch. Could we be in for a spectacle here? Delhi suddenly in trouble!

DD 27/1 | Overs 4 | Chand 4*, Jayawardene 5* OUT! Sehwag 17(15)

Virender Sehwag gets a boundary with a simple looking stroke towards the point region off Jacques Kallis’ first ball of the fourth over. But the bowler has the last laugh as he gets Sehwag caught by  Yusuf Pathan at the first slip, who fumbles a bit. Unmukt Chand, the new man in, gets a boundary from the cover region off the last delivery.

DD 19/0 | Overs 3 | Sehwag 13*, Jayawardene 5*

Virender Sehwag brings up 3,000 runs in Twenty20 cricket with a flick off the pads for four after Brett Lee drifts down the leg. Sehwag then uppishly drives Lee straight to Gautam Gambhir at cover, but the KKR captain drops the danger man. KKR cannot afford such chances!

DD 12/0 | Overs 2 | Sehwag 7*, Jayawardene 4*

Virender Sehwag pulls L Balaji to the fine-leg fence for the first boundary of the innings. Earlier, Mahela Jayawardene survived a loud leg-before appeal.

DD 3/0 | Overs 1 | Sehwag 1*, Jayawardene 1*

Brett Lee steams in and bowls a good first over, conceding just three runs. KKR will be looking for early wickets.

So, 44 runs have come off the last four overs. It’s upto the KKR bowlers now how to make it count. Delhi would hope that this late surge will not prove to be costly. Join us in a bit for the chase.

KKR 136/7 | Overs 20 | R Bhatia 26*, Lee 16*

Ashish Nehra bowls short and Brett Lee powerfully pulls the left-hander just over deep mid-wicket for six. Lee, no mug with the bat, follows it up with a massive slog over long-on for half a dozen more! Valuable runs these for KKR! 16 come off the final over and KKR have certainly gotten themselves to a total that has been defended before.

KKR 120/7 | Overs 19 | R Bhatia 25*, Lee 1* OUT! Narwal 23(15)

Sumit Narwal falls after a valiant cameo as he skies Umesh Yadav straight to Unmukt Chand at long-on. Rajat Bhatia gets a boundary off the last ball as KKR reach the 120-mark. How many from the final over?

KKR 112/6 | Overs 18 | R Bhatia 21*, Narwal 23*

Morne Morkel finishes his spell with a five-run over. Morkel’s figures read 4-0-22-1.

KKR 107/6 | Overs 17 | R Bhatia 21*, Narwal 16*

Sumit Narwal gets two more useful boundaries for KKR after smashing Umesh Yadav straight down the ground, and then pulling the pacer to deep mid-wicket. 15 runs come from the over.

KKR 92/6 | Overs 16 | R Bhatia 16*, Narwal 6* OUT! D Das 18(26)

Ashish Nehra comes into the attack and dismisses Debabrata Das straight away by getting him to edge to keeper Kedar Jadhav. New man in Sumit Narwal then gets the top edge off an attempted pull to run down to the fine-leg fence. KKR will take them, however they come!

KKR 84/5 | Overs 15 | D Das 19*, R Bhatia 15*

Morne Morkel’s delivery brushes the off-stump of Rajat Bhatia, but the bails remain intact. Some good luck finally coming KKR’s way! Bhatia rubs salt by hitting Morkel for four off the last ball.

KKR 76/5 | Overs 14 | D Das 17*, R Bhatia 8*

Debabrata Das hits a six over long-on off Shahbaz Nadeem’s final over to bring some relief to KKR.

KKR 65/5 | Overs 13 | D Das 10*, R Bhatia 6*

Irfan Pathan finishes a magnificent spell of one for 16 that included 14 dot balls. Five runs came off his last over. KKR will have to push on at some stage here.

KKR 60/5 | Overs 12 | D Das 7*, R Bhatia 4*

Debabrata Das gets KKR a much-needed boundary off Shahbaz Nadeem, who had earlier bowled 11 dots out of 15.

KKR 54/5 | Overs 11 | D Das 2*, R Bhatia 3*

Morne Morkel charges in to bowl yet another tidy over for the Daredevils, giving away just four runs.

KKR 50/5 | Overs 10 | D Das 2*, R Bhatia 0*

Shahbaz Nadeem comes back to bowl a maiden over as KKR stare at a large barrel.

KKR 50/5 | Overs 9 | D Das 2*, R Bhatia 0* OUT! Kallis 12(15)

Irfan Pathan offers width as Jacques Kallis goes for the lofted drive over point, and everyone in the stadium expects the ball to sail over Ben Rohrer. But the Australian jumps high and sticks up his left hand and the ball sticks! We’ve seen three brillian catches today, but that was something else.

KKR 49/4 | Overs 8 | Kallis 11*, D Das 1* OUT! Morgan 10(9)

More trouble for KKR as Eoin Morgan sweeps Shahbaz Nadeem towards deep square-leg, where Umesh Yadav runs in from fine leg to take a brilliant catch! KKR are falling apart like nine pins!

KKR 42/3 | Overs 7 | Kallis 11*, Morgan 5*

Eoin Morgan gets off the mark by flicking Irfan Pathan to the deep mid-wicket fence. Like many times in this tournament so far, Morgan is expected to step up and shoulder KKR. The stage is set for Kallis to go for a big innings too.

KKR 37/3 | Overs 6 | Kallis 11*, Morgan 0* OUT! Y Pathan 20(16)

Yusuf Pathan lofts Morne Morkel over long-on, before going for the same shot but mistiming. The ball flew high in the air towards deep mid-wicket where brother Irfan got under it and took the catch. Needless to say, Irfan did not celebrate his elder brother’s fall.

KKR 29/2 | Overs 5 | Y Pathan 12*, Kallis 11*

Umesh Yadav offers width to Jacques Kallis and the South African thrashes it to the deep point fence via a tall cut. Kallis then shuffles across and whips a straight delivery that would have crashed into middle to the fine-leg fence. Risky, but then, it’s Kallis!

KKR 20/2 | Overs 4 | Y Pathan 12*, Kallis 3*

Ashish Nehra comes back to bowl a tidy over, giving away just four runs as KKR struggle to shake off their early wobble. Jacques Kallis will be key to KKR’s fortunes today, it seems.

KKR 17/2 | Overs 3 | Y Pathan 11*, Kallis 1* OUT! Bisla 4(7)

Umesh Yadav bowls a wide, then a peach of a delivery that beat Bisla’s edge, before knocking over the latter’s off-stump. Umesh is getting the bowl to swing a mile here! Brilliant bowling and Delhi are on top at Raipur!

KKR 15/1 | Overs 2 | Bisla 4*, Y Pathan 11*

Ashish Nehra angles away from Yusuf Pathan down the leg with just three fielders on the leg-side, and the latter helps it away to the deep backward square-leg fence. Yusuf then drills Nehra straight down the ground for four more. Nehra recovers well to bowl three dot balls.

KKR 5/1 | Overs 1 | Bisla 4*, Y Pathan 1* OUT! Gambhir 0(0)

And we have a wicket straight away! Gautam Gambhir gets himself run out without facing a ball! Great start for Delhi as Yusuf Pathan comes out to face his brother Irfan.

Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir has won the toss against the Delhi Daredevils and elected to bat first.

The big news from the centre is that Brett Lee is back in the KKR team.
