2031 hrs IST: Karthik steps out, meets the ball on the full and plays it in the gap for a boundary. 50 up for GL

2029 hrs IST: McCullum stops the bowler in the run-up. He’s not happy with the movement behind the bowler’s arm

2028 hrs IST: In his slot, and McCullum muscles it over mid-off for another boundary

1958 hrs IST: Dwivedi makes his intentions clear – dances down the track, manages a thick edge and it races to the ropes

1954 hrs IST: David Warner leads his team out, McCullum and Dwivedi the two openers for Gujarat Lions

1940 hrs IST: Trent Boult finally gets a game but he has big shoes to fill. M Rahman had been doing a great job for SRH

1914 hrs IST: SRH on the other hand seemed all bases covered against KKR. Bowlers delivered in the modest defence. Bhuvi and Mustafizur, as it has been the story throughout the tournament, were on top of their game

1910 hrs IST: Gujarat did a good job in the Qualifier 1 but were undone by a special AB de Villiers knock. Positives for them from that match – Kulkarni with the ball and Smith with the bat

1905 hrs IST: This is how the pitch for Qualifier 2 looks like. Typical Delhi wicket

1900 hrs IST: This makes an interesting read ahead of the mouth-watering contest

THE BUILD UP:

Warner and Finch divided by teams, united by craft

After Aaron Finch wrecked England with the fastest hundred in the shortest format, in the ethereally-splendid Rose Bowl, a few months before the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh, Finch was thrown up a question he has been asked perhaps most often in his career. Do you compete with David Warner? So Finch hadn’t to rummage through his stubble to reply. He put it succinctly, if not with candid self-depreciation: “The day you start trying to compete with Davie is the day that your career goes downhill pretty quick.”

Aravind: RCB’s man with the golden arm quietly making an impact

WHEN SREENATH Aravind laced up for only his third game in IPL 9 on May 11, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were languishing at No.6 on the table, needing to win all their remaining matches. He was yet to appear in two consecutive matches. In four of the five matches from that point on as RCB incredibly raced to the playoffs, the gangly left-armer picked up a wicket in his first over. Neither Aravind nor RCB have looked back ever since — though they did go down to Mumbai Indians on that night before commencing their unbeaten run.
