Delhi quicks keep Perth to 121
The clouds hung heavy over Newlands but the rain that has blighted much of this Champions League Twenty20 stayed away, allowing the first game of the group in four days. Perth Scorchers, needing to win both their remaining matches to stay alive, struggled for momentum and were kept down to 121 for 5 by Delhi Daredevils.
Daredevils, the only IPL team with a chance of reaching the semi-finals, made the most of winning the toss on a track which wasn't the easiest to bat on. Each of their four-pronged pace attack played their part in keeping Perth down to what should be a gettable target.
The batting is Scorchers' strength but they were unable to impose themselves on the Daredevils quicks. Their troubles were highlighted by Shaun Marsh's lack of fluency. A career average above 40 and a strike-rate above 130 show Marsh's Twenty20 credentials, but he wasn't able to find the boundaries with any regularity today. After facing 25 deliveries, he had made only 15, and though he rebuilt the innings with Simon Katich after the early loss of Herschelle Gibbs, the pair couldn't shift to a higher gear.

Ajit Agarkar, regularly pilloried for his high economy-rates, removed both batsmen on his way to superb figures of 4-0-14-2. The strikes came just after a couple of Marsh boundaries in the 12th over which finally lifted Perth's run-rate over six, and suggested the start of an extended period of big strokes from Perth.
The double-blow again sucked the flow out of the innings, and Morne Morkel, Daredevils' bowler of the tournament in the IPL, returned to inflict more damage. The highlight was the 19th over, when with Perth looking to swing at everything, he conceded just a single and dismissed the dangerous Mitchell Marsh.
All right that's it from this game. We are working frenetically to get the furniture ready for the next match. See you on the flip side
Quotes from presentation
"140 was where we needed to be," says Marcus North. "Looking at how it panned out, 140 looks like a good score. We had chances to get there, but we lost our way, losing Shaun and Simon in the middle. Still a lot of pride to play for and get our first win up."
"We haven't played for a week," says Mahela Jayawardene, "so good to get out and play a good game. We made a few mistakes, which nearly cost us the game. We didn't handle a few situations well. We will have a chat, but our bowlers and fielders did really well. Ajit batted really well, the experience showed. Credit to them, they fought really hard."
"It's a good thing following them because Irfan, Morke and Umesh have been bowling really well," says MoM Ajit Agarkar, who is yet to remove his pads. "Some days it works for you in T20, some days it doesn't. As long as your ideas are right, you can hope for the best. Some times it is nice to get over the line the hard way. Hopefully we will win a few easy ones later."

Scorchers tried hard to stay alive with the ball, but their batsmen didn't give them enough to defend. They kept taking wickets, but all it took to tip scales was two good shots from Agarkar in the end. Scorchers will be heart-broken, but they are out of the running for the semi-final.
"Sorry Tim, Today is the day of Bombay Ducks with Beer.Cheers" Ronald, as I always keep saying, it ain't over until Ajit has had his say. And that applies either way. However, I am surprised the BCCI hasn't pulled Ajit out yet, fearing workload before the upcoming Test series
"Shane Watson is the Ajit Agarkar of Sydney Sixers." Vignesh, tributes to the only Mumbai centurion at Lord's since the glory days of Dilip Vengsarkar are flowing thick and fast....,
