IPL3. Day.33. Match.47. Mumbai Indians Vs Delhi Daredevils.

Mumbai Indians 188 for 4 beat Delhi Dardevils 144 for 7 by 39 runs, to extend their lead at the top of the table.

Batting first, all Mumbai Indian batsmen in contributed with the bat. Madan made 15 of 19, Sachin 30 of 26, Ambatti Rayudu 24 of 21& Saurab Tiwary 38 of 28. But the most exciting feature of the match was the unbroken 50 run partnership between Duminy 21 of 14 and Pollard 45 of 13. In the partnership, Duminy's contribution was a mere five to Pollard's 45.The 20th over by McDonald yielded 25 runs and in the last five overs, 75 runs were scored off. Nehra with 1 for 30, Sangwan 2 for 35 and McDonald 1 for 42 were the wicket takers.

Delhi Daredevils surrendered meekly making just 144 for 7 loosing by 39 runs. Other than Warner's 31 of 15 at the top and unbeaten 33 of 31 by McDonald down the order, no other score is worth a mention. Fernando with 2 for 32, Harbhajan 1 for 24 and Ali Murtuza with 2 for 18 were among the wickets.

Who are going to join Mumbai Indians in semis, is still an unsolved mystery.
