Delhi have had real issues this year in the IPL and find themselves second-bottom in the table after having played four matches.
They came close to victory in their latest game against Sunrises Hyderabad, but in the end, they fell just short by four runs.
The Daredevils bowlers struggled to contain their opponents first up, with Hyderabad racking up 184-1 in their 20 overs thanks to two superb knocks from Australians Aaron Finch and David Warner.
In the end, they fell just short as their innings closed on 180-1, meaning they were defeated by a very narrow margin and find themselves increasingly adrift near the foot of the table.
The Indians batted first but could make just 141-7 from their 20 overs with only captain Rohit Sharma passing 50 runs.
In reply, Harbhajan Singh took two wickets, but Mumbai could not stop Chennai marching to a very comfortable victory.
Both teams have endured indifferent starts to this year’s IPL, so they will be determined to get back on track with a win here.

Having been missing through injury, Pietersen is back and hopeful of making a big impact in this year’s IPL.
The former England batsman has become a freelance Twenty20 cricketer, and he will be determined to stamp his authority here.
He may not have quite found form just yet, but West Indian Pollard will certainly be one to watch here.
With his aggressive batting and seam bowling, he is still one of the premier all-rounders in Twenty20 cricket.
