Mumbai Indians increased their lead at the top of the IPL 2017 points table with a convincing 14-run win over Delhi Daredevils at the Wankhede stadium on Saturday night. The win was made possible courtesy some brilliant bowling by New Zealand pacer Mitchell McClenaghan, who took three wickets for just 24 runs in his four overs. Delhi at one stage were reduced 24 for six and looked to be on course to bundled out very soon but an exceptional 91-run partnership between Chris Morris (52 not out) and Kagiso Rabada (44) brought Delhi back from the dead. However, it was not enough as Mumbai held on to their nerves and bowled well in the death to not let the match get away from their grasps.
Earlier, a great bowling effort from Delhi Daredevils (DD) helped them restrict host Mumbai Indians (MI) to 142/8 in 20 overs. Delhi had won the toss and had no hesitation in electing bowl. However, they didn't have the best of starts as Jos Buttler (28) and Parthiv Patel (8) gave the hosts a flying start. Delhi first removed Parthiv and then got the wickets of Buttler and the impressive Nitish Rana (8) in quick succession. Rohit Sharma (5) once again fell to a leg-spinner -- this time Amit Mishra -- as Mumbai lost all impetus in their innings. Mishra was excellent taking two wickets in his four overs and giving away just 18 runs. Pat Cummins too was impressive taking two wickets for 20 runs in his four overs. (Scorecard)
