Cape town: Ajit agarkar’s all round display backed by a composed half century from virender sehwag helped delhi daredevils beat perth scorchers by three wickets and move a step closer to a semifinal berth in the champions league twenty20 here on sunday. After delhi’s pace duo of morne morkel and man of the match agarkar restricted scorchers to 121 for five in 20 overs, the daredevils struggled despite sehwag’s half century but finally reached the target in 19.3 overs.
However, rimmington made amends as he came on to bowl in the next over, removing both irfan pathan (14) and sehwag to reduce delhi from a relatively comfortable 94 for four to 96 for six. Needing 8 off the final over, agarkar hit a cover drive off rimmington and then took a single as negi took the strike. Needing three from four balls, young negi blasted rimmington through the mid-wicket for a four much to the delight of his dug out.
