IPL3. Day6 Match 9. Mumbai Indians Vs Delhi Daredevils

A totally one sided affair. Delhi Daredevils won the toss and opted to field. Mumbai Indians riding on a fine 63 of 32 deliveries from Tendulkar and 61 of 31 deliveries from young Tiwary finished strongly at 218 for 7. Every DD bowlers were taken apart excepting Nennes, with a reasonable four overs for 35 runs. Ladda took 2 for 44.

Gambhir had to get back to pavilion at the beginning of the match itself with a groin injury.

Sehwag was taken after 26 of 16 balls and Mahroof after 28 of 18 balls. No one else did anything of note, and Gambhir did not bat. DD were 120 for 9 when the innings was terminated at 16.3 overs, giving a comfortable 98 run victory to Mumbai Indians. Jayasurya, Bravo and Harbajan finished with 2 wickets each.

Mumbai Indians after the arrival of Bravo and Pollard appear to be the Team to beat and with the best chance to win IPL3. However these are still early days.
Too many players are in the Injury list at the start itself. Were they carrying the injuries, or is it too much of cricket ? Brett Lee. Graeme Smith, Mascrenhas,Duminy and now Gambhir. Let us hope there are no further breakdowns.
