  • 23:36 (IST)

    Mumbai Indians win by 80 runs

    Krunal Pandya finishes things off with the wicket of Zaheer Khan. It was fitting that Krunal closed the contest after a breathtaking knock that saw Mumbai Indians post a mammoth score of 206. He followed that up with a brilliant bowling spell that saw him pick up two wickets for just fifteen runs. Delhi Daredevils had a bad day at the office when their bowlers, especially their spinners had an off day. Thei changes didn't work at all, while everything went according to plan for Mumbai Indians. With this big win Mumbai Indians move up to third in the rankings 

  • 23:30 (IST)

    OUT! Imran Tahir run out 5 (7b 1x4 0x6)

    Brilliant fielding from Mumbai Indians today. Tahir too slow as direct hit sees him depart

  • 23:16 (IST)

    OUT! A Mishra b Bumrah 1 (5b 0x4 0x6)

    Bumrah is on a clean-up job. Brilliant bowling as Mishra's off stump is uprooted from the ground

  • 23:14 (IST)

    After 15 overs, Delhi 108/6 (Chris Morris 11 , Amit Mishra 1)

    Wickets have completely derailed the Delhi Daredevils chase. Mumbai Indians sniff a great chance to address their run-rate. Morris' wicket is key for Mumbai Indians if they are to improve the run-rate

    Bumrah on a hat-trick. 

  • 23:00 (IST)

    OUT! JP Duminy c †Buttler b Bumrah 9 (9b 1x4 0x6)

    Duminy top-edges a Bumrah delivery which goes right up in the air. Buttler does well to judge the ball and take a good catch

  • 22:56 (IST)

    After 12 overs,Delhi 90/4 ( Rishabh Pant 20 , JP Duminy 6)

    De Kock's wicket has completely flattened Delhi Daredevils who are now looking for damage limitation more than anything. Mumbai Indians would on the other hand would be looking to wrap up the Delhi innings as early as possible and improve their run-rate

  • 22:50 (IST)

    OUT! SV Samson run out 6 (11b 0x4 0x6)

    Mix-up between Samson and de Kock leads to Samson having to return from more than half-way up the pitch. Harbhajan is quick to sense the opportunity as Krunal Pandya completes the run out

    OUT! Q de Kock c †Buttler b Pandya 40 (28b 4x4 2x6)

    Massive wicket for Mumbai Indians. The dangerman de Kock is back in the hut. Brilliant bowling from Krunal Pandya to build the pressure. What a day he is having

  • 22:37 (IST)

    OUT! SV Samson run out 6 (11b 0x4 0x6)

    Mix-up between Samson and de Kock leads to Samson having to return from more than half-way up the pitch. Harbhajan is quick to sense the opportunity as Krunal Pandya completes the run out

  • 22:28 (IST)

    After 6 overs,Delhi 49/2 ( Quinton de Kock (W) 31 , Sanju Samson 2)

    Quinton de Kock has been excellent so far and clearly Delhi Daredevils' hopes rest on his shoulders. Most importantly, de Kock's knock so far has been effortless and has found the boundaries without much of a risk

  • 22:21 (IST)

    OUT! KK Nair c Bumrah b Harbhajan Singh 8 (8b 1x4 0x6)

    Soft dismissal. Nair tries to scoop it over short fine-leg, but fails to get a telling connection as Bumrah takes a simple catch

  • 22:13 (IST)

    After 3 overs,Delhi 21/1 ( Quinton de Kock (W) 11 , Karun Nair 2)

    Harbhajan Singh is handed the ball for the first over, as Mumbai Indians opt for off-spin to begin their reply with the ball. Mayank Agarwal goes big in the fourth ball, hammering the fourth ball over deep square-leg to clear the rope comfortably. 10 runs conceded in the first over. Vinay is handed the ball in the second over, and gets rid of Mayank Agarwal, who gets an inside edge onto his stumps! McClenaghan has been quite disciplined as well. The problem for Delhi Daredevils is that they can't waste many deliveries trying to get set and it won't be easy to get going on this track

     
     

  • 22:07 (IST)

  • 22:06 (IST)

  • 22:05 (IST)

    OUT! Length delivery from Vinay along the middle stump, and Mayank Agarwal is cramped for room, getting an inside edge onto his stumps to depart for 8. Delhi lose their first wicket with just 11 on board! 

  • 21:48 (IST)

    After 20 overs,Mumbai 206/4 ( Jos Buttler (W) 18 , Ambati Rayudu 13)

    Brilliant comeback from Mumbai Indians after their two poor batting displays at Vishakhapatnam. Buttler and Rayudu finished the innings in style, but it was Krunal Pandya's 86 off 37 balls was the key in derailing the Delhi Daredevils bowlers off their plans. This is only the third 200 plus score in this season's IPL and only the first by any team other than Royal Challengers Bangalore

  • 21:38 (IST)

  • 21:34 (IST)

    OUT! KA Pollard c †de Kock b Morris 3 (6b 0x4 0x6)

  • 21:16 (IST)

    OUT! MJ Guptill c Nair b Khan 48 (42b 2x4 3x6)

    Guptill fails to middle a full toss as Karun Nair takes good catch in the deep

  • 21:07 (IST)

    After 13 overs,Mumbai 120/1 ( Martin Guptill 47 , Krunal Pandya 42)

    Krunal Pandya and Martin Guptill have really taken the attack to the Delhi Daredevils and all the ghosts from the first two games at Vishakhapatnam have been buried. Both the batsman have never allowed the the Delhi bowlers to settle and Mumbai are on course for a big score

  • 20:53 (IST)

  • 20:52 (IST)

    After 10 overs,Mumbai 84/1 ( Martin Guptill 29 , Krunal Pandya 24)

    Delhi Daredevils have managed to get rid of Rohit Sharma but promoting Krunal Pandya up the order has proved to be a smart thing for the Mumbai Indians. He has kept the pressure on the Delhi Daredevils as Mumbai Indians are on course to sey up a good platform for the likes of Pollard and Buttler

  • 20:34 (IST)

    OUT! RG Sharma c Pant b Mishra 31 (21b 1x4 3x6)

  • 20:29 (IST)

    After 6 overs,Mumbai 45/0 ( Rohit Sharma (C) 31 , Martin Guptill 14)

    Rohit Sharma and Martin Guptill have consolidated Mumbai's position and from a slow start, a few boundaries have made it into a pretty good powerplay. Zaheer Khan must keep an eye on the score and mustn't allow the Mumbai Indians to get away. The wicket will get slower as the game progressed and Delhi wouldn't want to chase a very big score

  • 20:17 (IST)

    After 3 overs,Mumbai 17/0 ( Rohit Sharma (C) 15 , Martin Guptill 2)

    Steady start from Mumbai Indians. The home side haven't lost any wickets so far unlike the two previous occasions in Vishakhapatnam. Rohit Shrma has looked good so far and Guptill has looked assured.

    Welcome to the live blog of the IPL 2016 game between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils.at Vishakhapatnam

Visakhapatnam: Fresh from a comeback win over Sunrisers Hyderabad, a confident Delhi Daredevils will aim to seal their place in the play-offs when they take on an inconsistent Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.

Being at third position with six wins from 10 matches, Delhi, with 12 points, will have one eye on toppling Hyderabad and Gujarat Lions (both at 14 points each), when they face fifth-placed Mumbai.

On the other hand, the defending champions with 12 points from as many matches, will need to pull off a win in their penultimate league match, if they are to stay in contention.

Going into Sunday's clash at the VDCA Cricket Stadium, the Delhi side will look for a repeat of their brilliant show against Hyderabad. The Zaheer Khan-led team has been an improved side in this edition having approached each game with a horses for courses strategy.

In the batting department, the Rahul Dravid-mentored side will once again bank on a good start from openers Quinton de Kock and Rishabh Pant, with the likes of Sanju Samson, Karun Nair, Sam Billings, Carlos Brathwaite and Chris Morris adding firepower in the middle-order.

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra has been his impressive self as usual while pacers Zaheer and Mohammed Shami have also been amongst the wickets. Spinners Imran Tahir and Shahbaz Nadeem have also been impressive in the limited opportunities they got.

On the flip side, Mumbai, who have been over-dependent on skipper Rohit Sharma, will hope for a good start from the India opener along with Parthiv Patel. The opening partnership has been a headache for the side as the opening combo has repeatedly failed to provide a decent start.

In case the opening combo fails again, Ambati Rayudu, Nitish Rana, Keiron Pollard and Jos Buttler will have to shoulder the responsibility of the batting. Mumbai will also look for some improved all-round performance from the Pandya brothers -- Krunal and Hardik.

The New Zealand duo of Mitchell McClenaghan and Tim Southee have led the pace attack well with Jasprit Bumrah while the Ricky Ponting-coached side will depend on an improved show from veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh to take on a confident young Delhi side.
