Wooden spooners Delhi Daredevils knocked defending champions Mumbai Indians out of the Indian Premier League after the trio of Sandeep Lamichhane, Amit Mishra and Harshal Patel starred with three wickets apiece for an 11-run win in their last league match in Delhi on Sunday. Set a target of 175, Mumbai Indians crumbled against quality leg-spin bowling by Sandeep (3/36), Amit Mishra (3/19) and medium pace of Patel (3/28). The visitors lost three wickets - Evin Lewis (48), Kieron Pollard (7) and Krunal Pandya (4) - in five balls at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Hardik Pandya (27) and skipper Rohit Sharma (13) added 43 runs before they were sent back as Mumbai slipped to 122 for seven in 14.5 overs. Ben Cutting tried his hand with a 19-ball 37 before MI were dismissed for 163 in 19.3 overs.

Once again, Rishabh Pant was the star performer with an attractive 44-ball 64. He and Vijay Shankar resurrected DD after they had lost three wickets in the first nine overs. Together, they added 64 runs for the fourth wicket, setting up the base for the challenging score. Defending champions Mumbai Indians need 175 to stay alive in the tournament. Back in their element at the business end of the tournament, defending champions Mumbai Indians will be firing on all cylinders against wooden spooners Delhi Daredevils in their bid to clinch a playoff berth in a must-win Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter on Sunday. The cash-rich league is still alive and kicking with only Sunrisers Hyderabad (18 from 13 games) and Chennai Super Kings (16 from 13 games) having clinched playoff spots. Statistically, five teams save Daredevils are still in contention, with two playoff spots still up for grabs. In the mid-table clutter, Mumbai Indians are among the four teams who are at 12 points and fighting for a spot in the playoff. Mumbai Indians (NRR +0.384) will be praying for a favourable result for Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last home match against KKR (14 points and NRR -0.091). A KKR win meant that only one slot is left during the final two encounter with an eye on run-rate. (Play Fantasy cricket and win cash daily)

While Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore will face off in one of the two matches, Kings XI Punjab takes on Chennai Super Kings in the final round-robin match later in the evening at Pune. However, the performance in the past few matches is sure to have boosted the confidence of Rohit Sharma and his men. Mumbai had a topsy-turvy campaign so far after a series of defeats early in the tournament, they were able to string in the victories when it mattered most. However, Daredevils can be the banana peel and Mumbai Indians will be wary after CSK slipped in their penultimate game. For DD, there is nothing but pride at stake, which makes the young team dangerous oppositions. The last time the two teams faced off, it was DD won by seven wickets win in a last-over thriller. (SCORECARD)

Mumbai's batsmen have been inconsistent so far with skipper Rohit Sharma scoring only 273 runs in this edition so far. It took a strokeful fifty from Kieron Pollard to help Mumbai post a competitive score against Punjab in their last match. Suryakumar Yadav (500 runs) has been among runs after being promoted as an opener while West Indian opener Evin Lewis (334) has had his moments on and off. Skipper Rohit's poor form is a big worry for Mumbai. Apart from his match-winning knock against RCB, Rohit has failed to live up to the expectations of the fans and MI need him to contribute big time, so that Pollard and the Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal can provide the late charge if needed. Jasprit Bumrah's (16 wickets) sensational three-wicket haul in the last match will give him a lot of confidence apart from his consistent show in most death over situations.

Hardik (18 wickets and 233 runs) has been solid without being spectacular while Krunal (224 runs and 11 wickets) has again been impressive. For Delhi, it has been another forgettable season as they looked below par throughout the tournament. Despite having legendary Ricky Ponting on board as coach or handing the captaincy in the middle of the tournament to young Shreyas Iyer, they have once again brought up the rear. However, a break of five days seemed to fresh them as they outclassed formidable Chennai by 34 runs to restore some pride. Vijay Shankar and Harshal Patel helped Daredevils post 162 for five and then leg-spinners Amit Mishra (2/20) and young Sandeep Lamichhane (1/21) managed to restrict CSK to 128 for six and Iyer would expect a similar effort from his team.

IPL 2018, DD vs MI

That's it from us. Switch over to the next game where Chennai play host to Punjab. Thanks for joining us.

!

Amit Mishra has been awarded the Man of the Match for his terrific spell. His figures of 4-0-19-3 choked Mumbai and eventually, helped his side win the game.

!

The man who made a difference in the visitors' last game, Pollard, failed to deliver today. It was Maxwell's brilliance in the field which sent him packing. Cutting came in and hit a few lusty blows to keep the visitors on track. He had an opportunity to become the hero but failed to overcome the last hurdle. A disappointing end to an eventful season for Mumbai.

!

Mumbai got off to a brisk start but they also kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Lewis was going great guns and it seemed that he will take the game away from the opposition. However, Amit Mishra was in his elements and got rid of the big West Indian. The leggie bowled with needle-like precision and ended with figures of 4-0-19-3 to push the tourists on the back foot. Do not forget the other spinner from Nepal, Sandeep Lamichhane, who also took three wickets.

!

Delhi have played the party spoilers to shut the doors on Mumbai! Cutting's flourish at the fag end almost took them over the line but he was probably left with too much to do. This is only the second time since 2009 that the defending champions have failed to make it to the top four. Credit to the hosts for playing with authority.

Harshal Patel to Jasprit Bumrah

OUT! That's the final nail in the coffin! MUMBAI FAIL TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS! Fullish delivery, Bumrah goes hard at it but mistimes it towards long on. Boult takes a couple of steps in and takes an easy catch. DELHI WIN BY 11 RUNS!

!

Mustafizur Rahman is the last man in. Do the tailenders have it in them to script a fairy tale for their side?

Harshal Patel to Ben Cutting

OUT! That's probably the game for Delhi! Cutting gave it is all but had to do too much. Slower ball outside off, Cutting swings at it but ends up miscuing it towards deep mid-wicket. Maxwell is cool as a cucumber and takes it with ease.

Harshal Patel to Ben Cutting

SIX! Whoaaa! What a hit in a pressure situation! The big Aussie is in the mood tonight and is also displaying nerves of steel. Short delivery, sits up nicely for him. He pulls it with aplomb over fine leg and clears the fence with ease.

!

Jasprit Bumrah is the new man in. Meanwhile, Harshal Patel will bowl the last over. He has 17 runs to defend. Can Cutting emerge as the hero for Mumbai? Edge-of-the-seat stuff!
