May, 10 2017 IST
  • That's it from us today. We will be back tomorrow bringing the Live coverage of the game between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab. Thanks for following Firstpost tonight

  • Shreyas Iyer is awarded the Man of the Math for his brilliant innings of 96

  • ALL OVER! Delhi Daredevils beat Gujarat Lions by 2 wickets

    Amit Mishra with two boundaries off the last two deliveries gets Delhi Daredevils home, but the real hero was Shreyas Iyer who made the chase possible for Delhi with his brilliant knock of 96 runs. Gujarat once again fail to defend a total. The result means little to either teams as both of them are out of the running for the play-offs, but this is a big win for Delhi Daredevils

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    96 is Shreyas Iyer's highest score in T20 cricket. His previous highest was 86 which he made for Mumbai against Vidarbha at Mumbai in 2016.

  • FOUR! Amit Mishra scores a boundary off his first ball. Delhi need 3 runs off 3 deliveries

  • OUT! Shreyas Iyer 98 (57) b Basil Thampi. Delhi need 7 runs off 4 balls with 2 wickets in hand

  • After 19 overs,Delhi Daredevils 187/7 ( Shreyas Iyer 94 , Pat Cummins 24)

    Good over from Faulkner, just six runs off it and a wicket. Delhi need 9 runs off 6 balls

  • OUT! Pat Cummins 24 (13) b James Faulkner c Dwayne Smith 

  • OUT! Pat Cummins 24 (13) b James Faulkner c Dwayne Smith 

  • After 18 overs,Delhi Daredevils 181/6 ( Shreyas Iyer 94 , Pat Cummins 24)

    Good over from Basil Thampi in the situation of the game. Just eight runs off it. However the equation favours Delhi who need 15 runs off 12 balls

  • After 17 overs,Delhi Daredevils 173/6 ( Shreyas Iyer 92 , Pat Cummins 18)

    Pat Cummins starts the over with a huge six to put Faulkner under pressure. Delhi score three off the next two deliveries before Shreyas Iyer hits a massive six over long off. Iyer then picks up a couple before beating mid-off to score a boundary. Another big over for Delhi who are favourites now

  • After 16 overs,Delhi Daredevils 152/6 ( Shreyas Iyer 80 , Pat Cummins 9)

    Dhaval Kulkarni continues and has a nightmare over. Shreyas Iyer who is playing one of the finest innings of this season, scored three boundaries off the first three deliveries without taking any risks as all the shots were down the ground. Two runs come off the last three deliveires, but it’ still 14 off the over which suits Delhi

  • After 15 overs,Delhi Daredevils 138/6 ( Shreyas Iyer 67 , Pat Cummins 8)

    Just as when one though Delhi's chase has fizzled out, Iyer and Cummins conjure up a 17-run over to get them back in the hunt. Shreyas Iyer with two beautiful cricketing shots to get two boundaries, before Pat Cummins hammered two more off the last two balls. Delhi need 58 runs from 30 balls

  • After 14 overs,Delhi Daredevils 121/6 ( Shreyas Iyer 58 , Pat Cummins 0)

    Excellent over from Dhaval Kulkarni who concedes just two runs in the over and also gets a wicket of the dangerous Carlos Brathwaite. The required run rate for Delhi is now over 12 runs per over

  • OUT! Carlos Brathwaite 11 (10) c & b Dhaval Kulkarni

  • OUT! Carlos Brathwaite 11 (10) c & b Dhaval Kulkarni

  • After 13 overs,Delhi Daredevils 119/5 ( Shreyas Iyer 57 , Carlos Brathwaite 10)

    Nine runs off the over. Brathwaite with a couple of boundaries off Jadeja. One of it was slightly fortuitous. But still a decent over for Delhi

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Three Delhi Daredevils batsmen run-out in an innings in IPL:

    v KKR, Delhi, 2012
    v MI, Visakhapatnam, 2016
    v GL, Kanpur, 2017*

  • Peter Miller, Cricket Writer and podcaster

    The Lions have been struggling to take wickets and they seemed to have found a solution — just get run outs. There have been three now as the Daredevils implode in the pursuit of a tricky but not insurmountable total. The Lions will be cocker-hoop that the Daredevils batsmen have been so happy to go for singles that aren’t there and that Jadeja and Raina have been good enough in the field to catch the batsmen short of their ground. 

  • After 12 overs,Delhi Daredevils 110/5 ( Shreyas Iyer 57 , Carlos Brathwaite 1)

    Basil Thampi has been expensive tonight and another one of his over cost 12 runs. COrey Anderson hit him for a boundary, but was dismissed by a superb piece of fielding from Ravindra Jadeja. The wicket just gave the over some respectability

  • OUT! Corey Anderson 6 (6) run out Ravindra Jadeja

    Another one from Ravindra Jadeja. Corey Anderson not even in the frame as Jadeja hits directly once more

  • OUT! Corey Anderson 6 (6) run out Ravindra Jadeja

    Another one from Ravindra Jadeja. Corey Anderson not even in the frame as Jadeja hits directly once more

  • After 11 overs,Delhi Daredevils 98/4 ( Shreyas Iyer 52 , Corey Anderson 1)

    Ravindra Jadeja with a fine over. Gives just six runs away when the required rate is over ten. Puts pressure back on Delhi who have batted really well so far, especially Shreyas Iyer. 

  • After 10 overs,Delhi Daredevils 92/4 ( Shreyas Iyer 47 , )

    Shreyas Iyer once again attacking the bowlers, hits the wily Faulkner for two boundaries. It was an excellent over for Delhi until Ravindra Jadeja with some excellent fielding ran Marlon Samuels out. Still 10 runs come off it

  • OUT! Marlon Samuels 1 (4) run out Ravindra Jadeja

    Excellent fielding from Ravindra Jadeja who gets another batsman out run out this season

  • After 9 overs,Delhi Daredevils 82/3 ( Shreyas Iyer 37 , Marlon Samuels 1)

    Shreyas Iyer keeping Delhi firmly in the chase. A big six off Jadeja makes it a nine-run over instead of a below par one for them. Marlon Samuels out to bat now and Delhi need him to fire today

  • After 8 overs,Delhi Daredevils 73/3 ( Shreyas Iyer 29 , Marlon Samuels 0)

    Excellent over from James Faulkner, gets the big wicket of Karun Nair and gives away just two runs. Could be a crucial over for Gujarat

  • OUT! Karun Nair 30 (15) b James Faulkner c Dwayne Smith

    Katun Nair fails to time a slower one and is caught at extra cover

  • Peter Miller, Cricket Writer and podcaster

    Two early wickets and then a fifty run stand leaves this brilliantly well poised between these two teams, but for me the Daredevils are still favourites to chase this down. 

    Nair and Iyer are going well but they need to bat another five overs together. 

  • After 7 overs,Delhi Daredevils 71/2 ( Karun Nair 30 , Shreyas Iyer 27)

    Ravindra Jadeja into the attack and straightaway the Delhi batsman find it hard to play their shots against him. Just three runs come off the first five balls, but Karun Nair plays a risky reverse sweep that pays off and gets him four runs

  • After 6 overs,Delhi Daredevils 64/2 ( Karun Nair 25 , Shreyas Iyer 25)

    Huge over! Dwayne Smith hit for 17 runs as Delhi end the PowerPlay in charge of the situation. Firstly Shreyas Iyer hit a boundary on the offside, while Karun Nair smashed three straight fours to end the over. Delhi fighting back hard after tough start

  • After 6 overs,Delhi Daredevils 64/2 ( Karun Nair 25 , Shreyas Iyer 25)

    Huge over! Dwayne Smith hit for 17 runs as Delhi end the PowerPlay in charge of the situation. Firstly Shreyas Iyer hit a boundary on the offside, while Karun Nair smashed three straight fours to end the over. Delhi fighting back hard after tough start

  • After 5 overs,Delhi Daredevils 47/2 ( Karun Nair 13 , Shreyas Iyer 20)

    Basil Thampi comes into the attack and he was thumped by the confident Delhi batsmen. Shreyas Iyer hit two boundaries off the second and fourth deliveries before Karun Nair scored a huge six off the last ball. 15 runs off that over

  • After 4 overs,Delhi Daredevils 32/2 ( Karun Nair 7 , Shreyas Iyer 11)

    Pradeep Sangwan continues but this time Delhi batsmen get the btter of him. Shreyas Iyer who has looked in fine form thus far hammered him for two boundaries on the offside. 10 runs come off the over. Delhi not getting bogged down despite the wickets

  • After 3 overs,Delhi Daredevils 22/2 ( Karun Nair 2 , Shreyas Iyer 6)

    Dhaval Kulkarni bowls a good over that could have been even better had Shreyas Iyer not hit him for a boundary off the last ball. After the last over, it was important to keep the Delhi batsman under pressure and not give away too many runs and Kulkarni did a decent job. 

  • After 2 overs,Delhi Daredevils 15/2 ( Karun Nair 1 , Shreyas Iyer 0)

    Excellent over from Pradeep Sangwan. It didn't start off too well for the bowler as Samson smashed him for a boundary, but Sangwan hit back by castling him next ball. Rishabh Pant who walked out to bat despite his injury pulled Sangwan for a boundary on the very first ball, but a moment of brain fade meant Suresh Raina ran Pant out. Big blow for Delhi at the start of the innings

  • OUT! Rishabh Pant 4 (2) run out Suresh Raina

    Suresh Raina with some quick thinking and excellent fielding gets Rishabh Pant run out. Poor awareness from Pant

  • OUT! Sanju Samson 10 (7) b Pradeep Sangwan

    Samson plays it onto his stumps

  • After 1 overs,Delhi Daredevils 7/0 ( Sanju Samson 6 , Karun Nair 1)

    Sanju Samson starts off the innings with a boundary off Dhaval Kulkarni. A good punch on the offside. But Kulkarni does well to bounce back from the bad starts anc concedes just three more runs. Rishabh Pant has his pads on. Karun Nair has come to open the innings in his place

Preview: With their campaign in the 2017 Indian Premier League (IPL) already done and dusted, Delhi Daredevils and Gujarat Lions will look to salvaging some pride when they clash in a league tie at the Green Park Stadium at Kanpur on Wednesday.

Languishing at the penultimate spot in the standings, Delhi's slimmest hopes of making the IPL play-offs were on Monday dashed when Sunrisers Hyderabad beat table toppers Mumbai Indians by seven wickets.

With four wins and seven losses, Delhi have once again been hugely inconsistent this season. The 2012 semi-finalists had raised hopes of making it to the knockout stage after pulling off sensational wins over Sunrisers and Gujarat at the Ferozeshah Kotla.

But Zaheer Khan and his men could only blame themselves for the disastrous batting display, getting bowled for a mere 66 in their response to Mumbai's target of 213 in their previous home game.

On the other hand, Gujarat are a notch above Delhi at the sixth spot with four wins and eight losses. Gujarat's lack of depth in bowling have been the main reason for their doom this season.

For the two teams now, it would be a battle for not finishing last in the tournament. The last time both this teams faced each other, it was the Daredevils who rode on a phenomenal innings from Rishabh Pant to romp home by seven wickets at home.

Delhi Daredevils: Zaheer Khan (Captain), Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Mohammed Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant (WK), Chama Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Marlon Samuels.

Gujarat Lions: Suresh Raina (Captain), Akashdeep Nath, Basil Thampi, Shubham Agarwal, Dwayne Smith, Chirag Suri, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Manpreet Gony, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Shadab Jakati, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Dhaval Kulkarni, Praveen Kumar, Brandon McCullum, Pradeep Sangwan, Jason Roy, Jaydev Shah, Shelly Shaurya, Nathusingh, Tejas Baroka.
