IPL T20 2011 – DD vs PWI: Delhi Finish Last After Washout

By on May 21, 2011

Match abandoned due to rain. Delhi Daredevils 56 for 3 v Pune Warriors

And so it’s Delhi Daredevils who finish at the bottom of the pile. A heavy downpour forced the game to be abandoned after Delhi struggled through to reach 56 for 3 from 10.1 overs against Pune Warriors.

Delhi just lurched along aimlessly before the rain saved them from further embarrassment. David Warner offered brief respite to the Delhi fans with a pulled six off Alfonso Thomas and a six over long-on against IPL debutant James Faulkner. That was it, for it was Pune who controlled the game. Pune, in their first IPL season, finished ninth in the table, ahead of Delhi on net run-rate.

Faulkner had a good night bowling his left arm seamers; he delivered a lovely slower yorker – released out from back of the hand – to knock out Warner and bowled a couple of jaffas that kicked up from a length at Matthew Wade. Another IPL debutant Shrikant Mundhe struck in his first over to end the misery of Naman Ojha, who had missed more than he connected; and Mitchell Marsh produced a yorker to terminate Wade’s limp innings. Then the clouds opened up. Game over.
