Delhi Daredevils vs. Mumbai Indians: Video Highlights, Scorecard, Report
Str

Delhi Daredevils picked up their second victory of the season against the struggling Mumbai Indians, winning by six wickets in Sharjah.

Having chosen to bat at the toss, Mumbai's rejigged top order failed once more, and only some late hitting from Kieron Pollard propped their total up to 125-6.

It never looked like being enough, and though the Daredevils did not race after it, they knocked it off in relative comfort.

After four games, the defending champions are still winless this season.

They rarely threatened to change that in this game.

Openers Rohit Sharma and Aditya Tare fell for single-figure scores, and while Corey Anderson and Ambati Rayudu lasted longer, they could not up the tempo.

Mike Hussey, dumped into the middle order, laboured to an 18-ball 10 before Jaidev Unadkat put him out of his misery.

At that point the Indians were struggling to make 100, but Pollard's 33 from 30 balls did boost the score.

That said, the batting errors continued, with the West Indian power hitter denied all but one ball of the final over in a confused batting display.

IPL Official

Delhi showed signs that their batting has picked up in their last game, and although Quinton de Kock struggled for rhythm as he posted 16 from just 24 balls, Murali Vijay was far better, scoring 40 from 34 balls before falling victim to India team-mate Sharma.

At 74-2, though, the Daredevils had Kevin Pietersen to call upon, and the captain looked in fine touch after a slow start.

His unbeaten 26 gave the team a timely boost as they prepare to continue their tournament in India.
