JP, Iyer steer Daredevils home

2015-04-24 00:00

JP DUMINY and Shreyas Iyer combined for a 154-run stand before the Delhi Daredevils completed a 37-run win over the Mumbai Indians in their Indian Premier League match at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi yesterday.

Iyer blasted his way to 83 off 56 balls with seven fours and five sixes while Duminy was just as effective as he weighed in with 78 not out off 50 deliveries with three fours and six sixes with the pair’s second-wicket partnership coming up off 16.1 overs to make it the highest partnership by any team in this year’s IPL as Delhi posted a formidable 190-4.

Mumbai could only respond with 153-9 as they slipped to their fifth loss in six matches with legspinner Imran Tahir claiming three wickets in four balls to end with 3-22.

Delhi made a poor start to their innings, after being asked to bat, with Mayank Agarwal (1) caught at square leg off the bowling of left-arm quick Mitch McClenaghan in the first over. Iyer and Duminy were initially content to blunt Mumbai’s bowlers with their 50-run stand coming up off 42 balls on the slowish pitch.
