Mumbai snuff out Daredevils

2014-05-24 00:00

MUMBAI — Tremendous death bowling from Marchant de Lange and Jasprit Bumrah snuffed out any chance of a consolation victory for the Delhi Daredevils in their Indian Premier League match against the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium yesterday as the home side triumphed by 15 runs.

Chasing 173 for victory, the hapless Daredevils were restricted to 158-4 to record their 11th defeat in 13 games. The result technically kept alive the Indians’ hopes of a play-off place although they will need a series of other results to go their way.

Mike Hussey got the home side off to scorching start before a clatter of wickets saw them finish with a disappointing total of 172 all out after being asked to bat first.

Daredevils bowlers were flogged mercilessly. Tahir recovered from an early mauling to finish with 3-37 while J-P Duminy returned a tidy 4-0-31-0. Bottom place was guaranteed for Daredevils even before their penultimate match.
