- DD finished last and MI 5th
The first match of Super Sunday’s knockout matches saw the Delhi Daredevils knock the Mumbai Indians out of this year’s Indian Premier League. With the Mumbai Indians travelling to the Ferozshah Kotla just two points behind the Rajasthan Royals and a much superior net run-rate than them, MI knew that any sort of win would see them cement their place as the fourth side in the play-offs this year It was not to be a fairytale finish for them though after they succumbed to Delhi’s spin on the day to lose by 13 runs and with it end their season for this year. No one is to blame for their exit but themselves. A topsy turvy season ended up being their demise. Failing o find consistency at any point this year, Mumbai did manage the most epic of come-backs, only falling short by a whisker in the end. For the Delhi Daredevils who had the worst imaginable season possible, wins against the Chennai Superkings and Mumbai Indians in their last two matches will help put the team in good stead ahead of the next season.
Coming back to DD vs MI IPL match highlights, Stepping out to bat in the 4 pm kickoff, Delhi found themselves in a spot of bother after failing to read Mumbai’s line and length. A visibly pumped up Mumbai side were out for the kill and looked to be in a really good position before Rishabh Pant happened to them. The run-scoring machine that the youngster has become this season was in full flow once again as he signed off in style from this year’s IPL with a superlative 64 off44. He along with Vijay Shankar gave Delhi’s innings the much needed impetus to take them to 174-4.
Given the perfect start by Elvin Lewis at the start of the order, Mumbai failed to go for the kill when it mattered the most for them. After failing smoothly for almost 10 overs, Amit Mishra and Kuldeep Yadav stepped in to create havoc in their ranks. A 4 over spell by them saw Mumbai lose 4 wickets for just 23 runs and walk out of the tournament with that.
