Mumbai Indians won their first match at home routing Delhi Daredevils by 44 runs. MI, led by electric knocks from Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma, posted a mammoth 209 before their bowlers put on a good show to hand DD their third loss in three matches.
Defending a huge 210, MI struck with the very first ball of the run-chase as Ricky Ponting pulled off a spectacular catch to dismiss Unmukt Chand (0). Mitchell Johnson then struck sending back DD captain, Mahela Jayawardene (3) to further dent the chase. Johnson's 5th over was dispatched for three boundaries as DD, under Warner and Manprit Juneja (49), attempted to rally back.
Juneja survived a few anxious moments as a stumping appeal was referred to the third umpire off Harbhajan Singh. Warner smashed Kieron Pollard for a six and a boundary in his 10th over but despite Warner and Juneja's best efforts, DD still required 126 runs at the halfway stage.
Johnson got rid of the dangerous Warner (61) in the 11th over, caught by Ambati Rayudu at deep point. Pollard then caught Jeevan Mendis (0) of his own bowling and the slide continued as Irfan Pathan (10) holed out, followed by Kedar Jadhav (1) and Shahbaz Nadeem (2). Morne Morkel smashed Johnson for three successive boundaries in the 19th over but it was all a little too late, as the visitors fell short by 44 runs.
Earlier, MI won the toss and chose to bat. MI started badly losing their champion openers, Ricky Ponting (0) and Sachin Tendulkar (1), with just a run on the board. First Pathan had Ponting caught at mid-off before a brilliant throw from Jayawardene caught Tendulkar short of his crease. Dinesh Karthik (86) resurrected the innings with a magnificent counter-attacking knock. He hit Ashish Nehra for a six before following it with a boundary. He and Rohit Sharma (74*) led the charge adding 132 runs for the third wicket.
Karthik brought up his fifty in just 29 deliveries, taking apart Umesh Yadav's 9th over smashing three boundaries. The runs continued to flow as Karthik and Sharma found the fence at will. Karthik was eventually dismissed by Morne Morkel with MI at 133 for 3. Pollard (13) played a few lusty blows before Nehra dismissed him. Rayudu played the perfect cameo near the end scoring 24 of just 8 balls. Rohit Sharma finished the proceedings with a flurry smacking three sixes of the final over to take MI to 209 for 5.
Man-of-the-Match: Dinesh Karthik
Brief Scores: Mumbai Indians 209 for 5 (Dinesh Karthik 86, Ashish Nehra 2-49) beat Delhi Daredevils 165 for 9 (David Warner 61, Pragyan Ojha 2-34) by 44 runs.
After losing their previous encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore evened the score with a convincing seven-wicket win at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. RCB were led by their captain who scored an undefeated 93 to see his team home.
Chasing 162, RCB got off to a flier with Mayank Agarwal dismissing Hanuma Vihari for a six and a boundary in the very first over. Chris Gayle also got into the act and RCB scored 15 off Ishant Sharma's 5th over. Thisara Perera (29) then struck sending back the dangerous Agarwal.
Sharma struck soon after having Gayle (13) edge to the wicketkeeper.
Virat Kohli played some aggressive shots and along with AB de Villiers counter-attacked putting on 49 runs for the third wicket. Cameron White provided the breakthrough, when de Villiers (15) pulled a long hop but found the man in the deep. Kohli brought up his 50 of just 31 deliveries before hitting Amit Mishra's 16th over for two consecutive sixes, taking 21 runs from it. He followed it up with three boundaries of Perera putting RCB in the driver’s seat. Playing some breathtaking shots, Kohli enabled RCB to reach the target with 14 balls to spare.
Earlier SRH won the toss and elected to bat. RP Singh playing his first match of the season got RCB their first wicket when he had Akshath Reddy (12) caught at mid-on. Parthiv Patel (20) and Kumar Sangakara put on 38 runs for the second wicket before Muttiah Muralitharan bowled Patel. Disciplined bowling by the RCB bowlers restricted the flow of runs and SRH struggled to find any sort of momentum scoring just 62 runs by the halfway stage.
Sangakkara (23), giving the charge, fell to Murali Kathik, caught by Kohli. Perera (40) hit the first six of the SRH innings when he smashed Kartik over long off. White, along with Perera got into the act smashing Henriques for 18 runs, following it up with 19 runs off R Vinay Kumar. RP Singh provided the much needed breakthrough when he got rid of Perera but not before he had added 80 runs with White. White (52), who brought up his fifty with a massive six fell soon after holing out in the deep. SRH eventually finished at a competitive score of 161 for 6.
