Delhi Daredevils 167-6 (Karthik 56) beatKolkata Knight Riders 166-5 by four wicketsIndian Premier League 2014, DubaiScorecard

JP Duminy played an outstanding innings of 52 not out in 35 balls to steer the Delhi Daredevils to a four-wicket Indian Premier League 2014 win over the Kolkata Knight Riders in Dubai.

At the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, he took Delhi home to 167 for six in 19.3 overs, wherein they were chasing Kolkata’s score of 166 for five.

Delhi had gotten off to a bad start after Murali Vijay was run out for a duck in the first over itself.

Then, stand-in skipper Dinesh Karthik and youngster Mayank Agarwal put together 39 runs for the second wicket, setting the platform for a showdown at the end. Kolkata’s spinners then came into play after Morne Morkel (2-41) removed the opener in the fourth over. He scored 26 crucial runs off 14 balls, inclusive of three fours.  

But the slower bowlers weren’t able to get breakthroughs, as Jacques Kallis (1-15) provided the vital wicket of Ross Taylor (6).

Karthik played a dominant hand, scoring his first half-century of the tournament off 36 balls, with five fours and two sixes. In doing so he took the Daredevils’ score past the 50-run mark in the seventh over, and to three figures in the 13th over. They were making good pace when Karthik was dismissed by Morkel in the 15th over, providing another twist to the game.

It brought Duminy to the middle and the South African batsman manhandled his countryman, taking 21 runs off Morkel’s final over and putting Delhi back in command.

Sunil Narine (1-18) and Piyush Chawla (1-27) tried pulling things back in the final two overs, but Duminy’s lusty hits – three fours and three sixes – were enough to bring victory to Delhi with three balls to spare.

Earlier, Kolkata won the toss and elected to bat first. They got off to a torrid start with openers Gautam Gambhir and Jacques Kallis both falling without opening their account.

It was down to young Pandey to rebuild the innings and he did so amply using his good form, putting on 64 runs for the third wicket with Robin Uthappa.

Pandey carried Kolkata past the 50-run mark in the eighth over but narrowly missed his half-century, dismissed for 48 runs off 42 balls. He hit five fours.

At the other end, Uthappa did reach his first milestone of the season, scoring 55 runs off 41 balls, hitting six fours and one six. His half-century had come off 38 balls, taking Kolkata past the 100-run mark in the 15th over, but when he fell two overs later, Shakib al Hasan carried the score to its finishing mark.

The all-rounder scored 30 not out off 22 balls, with two fours and one six, while Mohammad Shami (1-33), Nathan Coulter-Nile (2-27), Jaidev Unadkat (1-25) and Shahbaz Nadeem (1-29) took wickets for the Daredevils.

Video - Bring On Delhi, Say Knight Riders

After their win against the Mumbai Indians, a confident Kolkata Knight Riders team say it’s time to bring on the Delhi Daredevils in the latest series of behind the scenes videos.

First though, they get a chance to show off their modelling skills, dressing to impress after their victory over the reigning champions. Look out for a ‘regal’ looking Jacques Kallis…

Chris Lynn and Suryakumar Yadav tell the story behind their tattoos

Next, it’s time for some football, but as Lynn says, the boys are lucky they can play cricket as this is not their strongest suit!

It always seems to be somebody’s birthday and this team it is team analyst Srikkanth’s turn to ‘take the cake’…

And there is more celebration as the team pass on their messsages of congratulation to Yusuf Pathan, who headed back home to be with his newly-born son.

And with the Daredevils game just hours away, there’s a great mood in the camp.

Bayliss’ Kolkata comes out firing

TREVOR Bayliss’ new-look Kolkata Knight Riders stormed to a 41-run victory over defending champions Mumbai in the opening match of the Indian Premier League.

Aussies in action

Mike Hussey was the sole Australian representative in the IPL opener. And it didn’t go well.

Hussey was bowled by West Indian mystery spinner Sunil Narine for just three from 13 balls at the top of the Mumbai order.

Hussey was the highest run-scorer in the IPL last year and continued his hot Twenty20 form in this summer’s Big Bash League with the Sydney Thunder.

Mumbai will expect more from him in their next match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Mumbai’s other Australians Josh Hazlewood and Ben Dunk were not named in their final XI for the tournament opener.

Similarly, Kolkata coach Trevor Bayliss opted against selecting Aussies Chris Lynn and Pat Cummins.

Match summary

After winning the toss and opting to bat, Kolkata got off to a poor start, losing a scoreless Gautam Gambhir to be 1-4 in the second over.

But they quickly bounced back with Jacques Kallis and Manish Pandey putting on a 131-run partnership before Lasith Malinga claimed the second wicket.

Malinga was a bright light for an otherwise lacklustre Mumbai, taking 4-23 off four overs.

Chasing a total of 163, Hussey opened Mumbai’s batting along with Aditya Tare but fell to Sunil Narine after notching up just three in 13 balls.

Coming in after Tare departed for 24, captain Rohit Sharma attempted to get Mumbai back on track, but was sent out for 27 as Kolkata took full command of the match.

Narine continued to cause problems for Mumbai, eventually taking three more wickets (4-20-4), as the defending champions only managed to clock up a 122 total.

Quote of the match

“We bowled really well in the first 10 overs, but let them off the hook after that. We let Jacques Kallis and Manish Pandey build a very large partnership and then they had a couple of really big overs. What really cost us the game was the catch I dropped of Kallis when he was on 34.” – Lasith Malinga

Mumbai Indians 122-7 (Narine 4-20) by 41 runs
Indian Premier League 2014, Abu Dhabi
Scorecard

Jacques Kallis with the bat and Sunil Narine with the ball were the star performers as the Kolkata Knight Riders beat the Mumbai Indians by 41 runs in the opening match of the Indian Premier League 2014.

Kallis struck 72 in 46 balls and Manish Pandey made 64 in 53, the pair doing the bulk of the scoring as 2012 champions the Knight Riders posted an imposing score of 163 for five, despite Lasith Malinga taking four for 23.

In reply, reigning champions the Mumbai Indians never really got into much rhythm, largely thanks to Narine’s haul of four for 20.

They closed on 122 for seven having been well beaten.

On a track that was unusually green, it did not take long for the tournament’s first wicket to arrive when Gautam Gambhir was bowled by Malinga for an eight-ball duck.

However, Kallis then struck five fours and three sixes with Pandey adding six fours and two sixes in a 131-run partnership for the second wicket.

Malinga dismissed both men, and removed Shakib Al Hasan for one, but Kolkata still finished strongly, Suryakumar Yadav ending on 13 not out in five balls.

Zaheer Khan, with one for 23, was the other wicket-taker for Mumbai.

Although he did not take a wicket at first, Morne Morkel then put Mumbai under early pressure with an outstanding spell, using the conditions to his advantage.

Even a player as experienced as Michael Hussey was subdued, and after scratching around for three in 13 balls, he was bowled by Narine in the fifth over.

Aditya Tare (24 in 22 balls) had just started to play some big shots when he was caught and bowled at the second attempt by Shakib Al Hasan, leaving Ambati Rayudu (48) and Rohit Sharma (27) with plenty of work to do.

The pair added 61 for the third wicket but progress was fairly slow and after Sharma hit Morkel for six, he was caught in the deep by Kallis off the same bowler as he attempted to repeat the stroke.

That was the 16th over and they had mustered just 106 runs by then, and that left the big hitters Kieron Pollard (6 not out) and Corey Anderson (2 not out) with far too much to do.

Narine, however, was bowling superbly. He had Rayudu stumped – at the second attempt – by Robin Uthappa and then bamboozled Anderson and Harbhajan Singh (0) to bowl both players.

Chidhambaram Gautam (7) was the other batsman to fall, stumped from the final ball of the game as Piyush Chawla snaffled a late wicket.

Tomorrow’s match sees the Delhi Daredevils take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Delhi will be without captain Kevin Pietersen who has a fractured finger and will be led by Dinesh Karthik.

Kolkata and Mumbai test the waters
ABU DHABI: Mumbai Indians 10, Kolkata Knight Riders 2. That’s the head-to-head count of the result of matches between these IPL heavyweights.

Going by figures alone, there won’t be much debate over who the favourite is for Wednesday’s league-opener at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here.

In fact, those who’ve been queuing up for tickets here have no doubt that Mumbai Indians are the one to watch out for.

They’re the defending champions, have been title-favourites last four years on the trot, have retained proven-match winners at the auction and arrived here with the necessary arsenal – attacking batsmen and a good set of spinners.

The Knights, on the other hand, have been quite unsteady at all times except for the year they won the title. From underdogs to wooden-spooners, they’ve seen it all, have let go of useful T20 players like Brendon McCullum and Eoin Morgan and may have to start from scratch yet again.

But if statistics and auction-strategies are kept aside, Mumbai Indians technically can’t claim the ‘favourites’ tag, simply because neither team has played a match at this venue before. For the same reason, the Knight Riders aren’t exactly in a spot because of what the head-to-head count reveals.

The pitch, the outfield, the weather – it is unbearably hot — and the toss will be important. As MI and KKR do battle, they’re likely to set a precedent for other teams to follow at this venue over the next two weeks.

“It (conditions) is the same for everyone so and I suppose it depends on how the teams handle it. We won’t know until the first few games are out of the way,” says Knight Riders coach Trevor Bayliss. “But it will be good to leave the UAE with a number of wins under your belt before we get back to India.”

While MI have retained the core of the team and have brought back Zaheer Khan at the cost of letting Mitchell Johnson leave, the Knight Riders have roped in some good young hands in Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey.

The crowds, nevertheless, aren’t flocking to the stadium just to watch these two teams — they will also keep a keen eye on two stars who have backroom jobs.

Sachin Tendulkar is back in the Mumbai Indians dressing room as an ‘icon’ and will play a part in building the franchise’s strategy. Shah Rukh Khan is here to cheer for the Knight Riders and capable of swinging crowd support in his favour because of the immense fan-following he enjoys here in the UAE. On Wednesday, expect Tendulkar devotees and Shah Rukh-struck men and women to fill the stands.

'I will never sell Kolkata Knight Riders'

MUMBAI: Drama has been as much a part of Kolkata Knight Riders’ journey in the IPL as linseed oil in an old bat. But then that is what one would come to expect from a franchise owned by a couple of versatile and successful cine stars.Thus, it was only …

IPL Player Auction 2014: Day 2: Performers in Domestic Circuit get their value worth

Railways legspinner Karn Sharma and Himachal Pradesh allrounder Rishi Dhawan became the two most expensive uncapped players on the second day of the IPL player auction. Karn, who played for Sunrisers Hyderabad last season, was bought back for a startling Rs 3.75 crores while Dhawan went to Kings XI Punjab for Rs 3 crores.

A total of 84 players were bought by franchises today making it an aggregate of 154 across the two-day auction. Today, franchises spent Rs 50.25 crores ($8.38 million) taking the total spend to Rs 262.6 crores.

The second day of the auction saw most franchises contest fiercely for the lesser-known Indian domestic players to build their squads after they had bought the core of the team on Monday. Maharashtra batsman Kedar Jadhav (Delhi Daredevils, Rs 2 crores), South Africa fast bowler and top wicket-taker in this season’s Ram Slam T20 Beuran Hendricks ( Kings XI Punjab, Rs 1.8 crores) Delhi allrounder Rajat Bhatia (Royals, 1.7 crores), Karnataka opening batsman Mayank Agarwal (Daredevils, 1.6 crores), MP and India fast bowler Ishwar Pandey (Chennai Super Kings, 1.5 cores), Punjab batsman Gurkeerat Singh (Kings XI, 1.3 crores), Gujarat fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah (Mumbai Indians, 1.2 crores), Mumbai seamer Dhawal Kulkarni (Royals, 1.1 crores) and Karnataka opener KL Rahul (1 crore, Sunrisers Hyderabad) were the biggest earners in the morning.

This is was the first time uncapped players were brought into the auction, a move welcomed by all franchises who said it provided a level-playing field for everyone in the wake of the controversies in the past seasons when teams would pick players with under-the-table deals and offers.

Karn was the last name to come out of the first set of uncapped spinners. Last year he had picked 11 wickets at an economy rate of 6.60 and had listed his base price Rs 30 lakh. Sunrisers joined the bidding and raised it to 1 crore by King XI which was doubled in less than a minute as both franchises refused to budge. Despite having assembled a good squad, Kings XI did not have any spinners in their line-up at the time and were desperate for him.

It was the second-most eventful bid of the morning after Dhawan’s. He nearly went unsold as the auctioneer received no bids before a late entry by Sunrisers. Mumbai, for whom he has played for before, took the bid to Rs 40 lakh before they quit. The bidding crossed the crore-mark before Sunrisers decided to quit.

If Kings XI appeared happy and convinced they had Dhawan, the most successful bowler this Ranji season with 49 wickets, they were in for a surprise as Rahul Dravid, Royals’ coach, raised the paddle when the bid was at Rs 1.2 cores. As it crossed the 2-crore mark , both teams started to negotiate before deciding to raise the bid. Finally Dravid signaled Royals were out once Kings XI had raised the bid to Rs 3 crores.

There were two overseas players also sold this morning. Netherland’s Ryan ten Doeschate, was bought back by his former IPL employer Kolkata Knight Riders for the base price of Rs 1 crore and West Indies allrounder Kevon Cooper went back to the Royals for a base price of Rs 30 lakh.

Other Domestic performers were also awarded rewarded. Jadhav was the top run maker this Ranji Trophy. Rahul was No. 3 on the same list. Karun Nair, instrumental in Karnataka emerging as Ranji champions, was bought by Royals. Mumbai bid strongly for Gujarat fast bowler Bumrah and got him.

Daredevils flashed the right-to-match card twice to get Jadhav and Jharkhand left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem, Kings XI raised the card to retain Mandeep, Royals got the 41-year-old legspinner Pravin Tambe for his base price of Rs 10 lakh and Royal Challengers exercised their card to retain Haryana seamer Harshal Patel.

Players who remained unsold on Wednesday were brought back into the auction once again after lunch today. New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor, who was bought for his base price of Rs 2 crores by Daredevils, one of his previous franchises. Former Indian left-arm-spinner Murali Kartik, a precoius player, was picked up by Kings XI for his base price of Rs 2 crore.

Madhya Pradesh wicketkeeper batsman Naman Ojha, who represented Daredevils in the previous IPL seasons, was bought by Sunrisers for his base price of Rs 50 lakhs. Australia’s Chris Lynn was contested by Royals and Knight Riders, who eventually bagged him for Rs 1.3 cores. Knight Riders also grabbed West Indies allrounder Andre Russell, who previously was at Daredevils, for Rs 60 lakhs.

A departure from the past auctions was franchises cutting down on the expenditure on overseas players this time. Instead, they focused on players who could fill up a certain position. But it was evident that the franchise scouts had kept an eye on overseas Twenty20 tournaments. Cape Cobras’ left-arm fast bowler Hendricks who was the higher wicket-taker in the recently concluded Ram Slam T20. Queenslander Ben Dunk, who was part of Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League who was the tournament’s best player, was picked by Mumbai Indians in late bidding for just 20 lakhs. Jamaican left-arm fast bowler Krishmar Santokie, who was Caribbean Premier League’s highest wicket-taker (representing Guyana Amazon Warriors), also went to Mumbai at his base price of 30 lakhs.

Morgan opts out of IPL

Having represented Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2010, Eoin Morgan played for Kolkata Knight Riders from 2011 to 2013

Eoin Morgan has withdrawn from Thursday’s Indian Premier League auction, meaning he is set be available to Middlesex earlier than expected.

The 27-year-old tweeted: “I would like to thank @IPL for accepting my request to withdraw from this year’s auction. Good luck with the tournament.”

Morgan, who has previously represented Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore, would have almost certainly been bought in the auction, denying Middlesex his services for the early part of the season.

However, following the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh – whose final coincides with Middlesex’s first LV= County County Championship game – and a period of rest, the Panthers’ new white-ball skipper should get some championship action in April and May.

The batsman, who was recently named England’s limited-overs vice-captain, is then likely to be involved in a one-day international with Scotland on May 10 and limited-overs internationals versus Sri Lanka in May and June.

Morgan, whose last Test was in early 2012, will hope for a recall to the five-day team for two matches against Sri Lanka during June.
