Riding on the magnificient 83-run knock from Shreyas Iyer and a superb spell of bowling from Imran Tahir, Delhi Daredevils defeated Mumbai Indians by 37 runs in the 21st match of the IPL 8 at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. 

Chasing a stiff target of 191, Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel got Mumbai Indians off to a good start as the duo added 35 runs in 4.2 overs before Domnic Joseph struck to get rid of Simmons. Unmukt Chand walked in at number three and along with Parthiv, he tried to steady the ship, but both got out in quick-time and Kieron Pollard followed them soon, leaving MI reeling at 82/4 in 11 overs. Leggie Amit Mishra grabbed the scalps of Chand and Pollard whereas Mathews got the better of Parthiv.

MI skipper Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu then played sensibly and put on 49 runs for the fifth wicket in 5 overs and just as when it looked like we might have a cracker-jack of a game, Rohit played a loose shot and Shahbaz Nadeem took a great running catch on the bowling of Nathan Coulter-Nile to banish MI’s any hopes of winning the match. In the 16th over, leggie Imran Tahir took three wickets and Angelo Mathews delievered a fine last over as DD cruised to their third win of the tournament.  

Earlier after being put into bat, Iyer and skipper JP Duminy led DD’s charge with 154-run partnership for the second wicket and Mathews played a little cameo at the end to take the team’s total to 190. Duminy played an brilliant knock of 78 off just 50 balls whereas Mathews scored 17 off 8 balls.

Brief Scores: DD 190/4 (Iyer 83, Duminy 78*) defeated MI 153/9 (Rayudu 30, Tahir 3-22, Mathews 2-15) by 37 runs
