The win was another two points for the Mumbai Indians, who on the day, in support of the ‘Education For All’ programme, had 11,000 children inside the stadium, dedicated their victory to the under privileged kids.
Chasing 184, PWI got off to a horrible start as Aaron Finch (0) was bowled first ball by Johnson. Ross Taylor (4) was run out by Ambati Rayudu and it only got worse as Johnson swung the ball sharply to send Uthappa's (7) off-stump cart-wheeling to reduce PWI to 13 for 3.
Tirumalasetti Suman (23) opened his account with two glorious boundaries through the point region. He fell trying to clear the fence caught by Kieron Pollard off Harbhajan Singh.
Yuvraj Singh (24) hit the first six of the PWI innings depositing Pollard behind square leg in the 8th over. Just as he was looking good, he was dismissed, caught beautifully by Rishi Dhawan. PWI lost their sixth wicket as Angelo Mathews (19) fell in pursuit of runs to Pragyan Ojha.
Mitchell Marsh kept the fight going hitting a few sixes including a monster 99 meter hit off Johnson. Lasith Malinga dismissed Abhishek Nayar (6) and Marsh's (38) wicket off Johnson, caught brilliantly by Dhawan was the last nail in the coffin for PWI. They eventually finished at 142 for 8.
Earlier MI opted to bat and openers Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar started positively. Ponting hit Bhuvneshwar Kumar for two boundaries before Tendulkar went after Ashok Dinda smashing four successive boundaries. Tendulkar was put down by Yuvraj Singh off Rahul Sharma at mid-on and the Master responded by depositing the next ball over the ropes. Yuvraj Singh soon made amends dismissing Ponting (13) caught at point. Aaron Finch got PWI their second wicket having Tendulkar (44) caught by Marsh.
Dinesh Karthik stroked Yuvraj Singh for consecutive boundaries in the 12th over before pulling Angelo Mathews for a six the next over. Mitchell Marsh trapped the in-form Karthik (41) leg before to provide his team another timely wicket. Dinda's day got worse as Rohit Sharma (62*) slammed him for consecutive sixes, taking 19 runs off the 17th over. Marsh's next over went for 21 runs as Sharma and Pollard (19*) pressed their foot on the pedal. Some more lusty blows by Sharma in the last over propelled MI to 183 for 3 from their 20 overs.
Man-of-the-Match: Rohit Sharma
Brief Scores: Mumbai Indians 183 for 3 (Rohit Sharma 62*; Aaron Finch 1-11) defeated Pune Warriors India 142 for 8 (Mitchell Marsh 38; Mitchell Johnson 3-33) by 41 runs.
Mishra drags SRH across the line; DD woes continue
By Arun Gopalakrishnan
Mumbai 13 April 2013
Delhi Daredevils’s woeful run in the Pepsi IPL 2013 continued with the Sunrisers Hyderabad defeating them by three wickets at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi on Friday night. The win was set up for the Sunrisers by their bowlers who restricted DD to just 114 before their batsmen huffed and puffed their way with DD putting up an inspired fight.
Chasing a meager 115, SRH lost Akshath Reddy (1) to a spectacular run out by Shahbaz Nadeem. Kumar Sangakkara and Parthiv Patel got a partnership going as the two added 44 runs before Patel (19) was dismissed caught and bowled by Nadeem to give DD their second wicket. Johan Botha then had Sangakara (28) edge to Virender Sehwag at slip before Nadeem had Cameron White (4) stumped.
Hanuma Vihari departed the next over to Morne Morkel bringing DD back into the game. Morkel then removed Ashish Reddy (16). Irfan Pathan got the much needed wicket of Thisara Perera (2) holing out in the deep to reduce SH down to their last three wickets. However Amit Mishra (16*) played sensibly to guide his team closer to the target. With SRH needing 6 runs to win off the final over, Dale Steyn ran two off the first delivery and then punched the ball straight down the ground for a boundary to take his team home with four balls remaining.
Earlier DD won the toss and chose to bat but found an intimidating Dale Steyn as he bowled a first over wicket maiden, dismissing the in-form David Warner. Mahela Jayawardene was then given a reprieve the very next delivery as Patel failed to hold onto an edge. DD were dealt a major blow when Ishant Sharma had Jayawardene (12) caught by Steyn at mid-on. He followed it up with the wicket of Sehwag (12) caught at slip the next delivery to leave DD stuttering at 26 for 3.
The slide continued as Johan Botha (9) was caught at point off Anand Rajan. At the halfway stage DD were at 46 for 4. Amit Mishra removed Manpreet Juneja (15) to further dent the DD innings. Kedar Jadhav (30*) finally got a move on for DD hitting Ishant Sharma for a four and a six in the 17th over. Perera then struck dismissing Pathan (23) and Morkel (0) in quick succession. Jadhav's innings – the lone saving grace, ensured that DD reached 114 for 8 in their 20 overs.
Man-of-the-Match: Amit Mishra
Brief Scores: Delhi Daredevils 114 for 8 (Kedar Jadhav 30*, Dale Steyn 2-11) lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad (Kumar Sangakkara 28, Shahbaz Nadeem 2-17) by 3 wickets
