Chasing a steep target of 207 runs, Delhi Daredevils were bundled out for a paltry 126, hence losing by a wide 80-run margin in an Indian Premier League encounter on Sunday. The man who grabbed the spotlight was Krunal Pandya. He fared well both with the bat and the ball. He picked up two crucial wickets (2-15) and smashed a powerpacked 86 in the first innings to take Mumbai Indians to vantage point.

Earlier put in to bat, openers Rohit Sharma (31) and Martin Guptill (48) helped the defending champions get off to a decent start scoring 45 runs without losing any wickets. In the dying overs the innings, Buttler (18 not out) and Ambati Rayudu (13 not out) played useful cameos to take the team past 200-run mark. Mumbai Indians are still alive in the tournament and can still hope for a playoff berth.
