Commentary

That's all we have for you from this game, but action from the Super Kings and Sunrisers match will be coming at you in a few. This is Alagappan Muthu signing off.

M Vijay is the Man of the Match "Actually the wicket was playing a little slow. Wanted to take my time and finish the game for my team, but unfortunately couldn't do that. Had been hitting the ball well in the domestics as well and hopefully I can pull off a few wins for Delhi. Great grounds, great crowds. Good fun"

"Absolutely happy. 50-50 on the toss, our bowlers were magnificent. Quite a difficult wicket to bat on. The boys showed some good application," Kevin Pietersen says. "That's sub-contnient wicket, I thought the way M Vijay played. Goodness me, what a player. We need to keep doing the right things and more often than not we'll be successful"

"Batting [was the problem] 126 was not a score we were looking for. We needed to post something for the bowlers to defend," says Rohit Sharma. "We need to work there definitely, said at the toss as well. We tried everything possible, we changed the batting line up but didn't work. We are looking forward to going to Bombay and playing but I hope the batters will step up here in our last game in Dubai"

Senthil: "MI should take some hard decisions including dropping of Mike Hussey and Corey Anderson despite both them being their most expensive buy at the auction. But I found it hard to replace them with their current squad as only Ben Dunk can replace Hussey and it won't be still good enough, really they have 1 too many overseas fast bowlers instead of an overseas all rounders. I can't see MI qualifying for Playoff this season despite it moves to India sooner"

5.55 pm Mumbai Indians just did not have enough on the board. Delhi Daredevils contrived to make it tougher than it should have been. The bowling is a good positive for KP's side. They exploited a slower wicket wonderfully well and will also be pleased with Vijay's form. Mumbai have a multitude of questions to answer though

18.5
4
Khan to Jadhav, FOUR runs, four to fine leg and that's the game in the bag. Walks across to off stump and clips the length ball with some class. Mumbai have crashed into their fourth loss in a row and those hand shakes and pats on the back would have negligible effect
18.4

Khan to Jadhav, 2 runs, fullish and outside off, he opens the face and steers it between cover and point
18.3
0
Khan to Jadhav, no run, goes length now and Jadhav swings wildly, misses
18.2
1
Khan to Pietersen, 1 run, another short ball and it's a good one too. KP's late on the hook and he gets a bit of a top edge that evades midwicket
18.1
1
Khan to Jadhav, 1 run, dug in short and Jadhav's hook doesn't connect well. Ends up just behind square leg
