Delhi Daredevils defended 164 against Mumbai Indians and sealed a hat-trick of wins for the first time since IPL 2012. After Mumbai appeared to be cruising for much of the innings, legspinners Amit Mishra and Imran Tahir strangled Mumbai in the middle overs before seamers Zaheer Khan and Chris Morris fired inch-perfect yorkers to seal Daredevils' tense 10-run victory.

Mumbai still had a chance when the equation was 42 off 18 with Kieron Pollard on 8 and Rohit Sharma on 50. Morris, coming back for his third spell, conceded ten runs in the 18th over and Zaheer followed it with the wicket of Pollard to push Daredevils ahead. Morris was left to defend 21 off the last over. Hardik Pandya slapped the first ball to long-off and Rohit gave Mumbai hope by clouting the second ball for a six. A ball later, when scampering back for a second run, Rohit collided with Hardik Pandya near the middle of the pitch and was run out. Mumbai also had to bear the anxiety of Rohit being helped off the field by the physio. Morris trapped Harbhajan Singh lbw the next ball and consigned Mumbai to their fourth loss in six matches.
