Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils: As It Happened

Delhi were tottering at 24 for six at one stage before a 91-run stand between Kagiso Rabada (44) and Chris Morris (52) raised their hopes.

However, it only reduced the margin of defeat.

McClenaghan (3/24) rocked Delhi's top-order and Bumrah (2/21) broke the solid seventh-wicket stand between Rabada and Morris to shape his side's win.

Delhi needed 30 runs off the final 12 balls but Bumrah and Hardik Pandya denied the rivals a win.

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra returned exceptional figures 4-0-18-2 while Australian paceman Pat Cummins (2/20) also chipped in with two wickets in Delhi's good bowling show.

Earlier, It was Hardik Pandya's 24 off 23 balls and West Indian Kieron Pollard's 26 off 29 balls that helped the home side to go beyond the 140 run mark after being 84/5 at one stage.

Mumbai managed to score only 32 runs in the last five overs as Delhi skipper Zaheer made some good bowling changes.

For the visitors, Australian paceman Pat Cummins (2/20), Rabada (1/30) were impressive.

Openers Parthiv Patel and Jos Buttler stitched 37 for the first wicket in four overs. Buttler made his intentions clear as he hit a six off Chris Morris in the second over, followed by a boundary.

Buttler, the star of Mumbai s game against Kings XI Punjab, got a life on 11 after being dropped by wicket-keeper Rishab Pant on the last ball of the second over.

The Englishman then hammered Rabada for a maximum over the mid-wicket fence. However, in the same over, Rabada, clinched his first IPL wicket as he cleaned up Parthiv (8.

Buttler struck Zaheer for two boundaries in the fifth over. But Buttler s stay at the crease was cut short by a brilliant throw by Sanju Samson, who came from short cover to hit the stumps as Mumbai slumped to 47/2.

Buttler made 28 off 18 balls, hitting two sixes and three fours.

In the eight over, Cummins removed in-form Nitish Rana (8) as he gave a sitter to Corey Anderson at deep mid-wicket.

In the very next over, skipper Rohit Sharma (5) again fell to a leg spinner, this time Mishra as he was caught by Cummins at deep backward square leg.

In the 13th over, Mishra claimed his second wicket as he sent back Krunal Pandya for 17 as he edge to stumper Pant.

Half of the Mumbai side was back to the pavilion on 84.
