With Sehwag and Kevin Pietersen doing the bulk of the scoring in the earier matches, the Daredevils middle-order was put to test for the first time and it failed miserably.
The likes of Ross Taylor, Yogesh Nagar should take bulk of the blame as they couldn't stand-up and be counted when their team needed them most. The defeat is certainly a wake-up call for Sehwag's boys.
The Daredevils lost the match within the Powerplay overs as Gambhir and McCullum started off from where they left against Pune Warriors.
