IPL 4: Delhi chase down 187 against Pune

Mumbai: Delhi Daredevils beat Pune Warriors by three wickets in their Indian Premier League match on Sunday.

Brief Scores:

Pune Warriors: 187 for five in 20 overs. (Yuvraj Singh 66 not out, Jesse Ryder 60; Shahbaz Nadeem 2/39).

Delhi Daredevils: 190 for seven in 19.2 overs (David Warner 46, Virender Sehwag 37; Yuvraj Singh 4/29).


Ryder, on 46, pulled Nadeem hard and straight to the deep mid-wicket fence, where Dinda dropped a sitter to give the batsman his second life.

The Kiwi accepted it gleefully and smacked the next ball over long-on for his fifth six to reach his half century in only 24 balls.

Ryder swung the bowler for another four to the square leg fence before holing out to Aaron Finch.

After that, Daredevils fought back in the next five overs to arrest the run-rate.

At the end of the 15 over, Pune were 128 for five but in the next, Irfan conceded 13 runs.

Mohnish Mishra, who played a match-winning 21-ball 37 in the previous game against Kochi Tuskers Kerala, failed to get going and fell cheaply to Dinda.

What followed after that was total carnage as Yuvraj took the Delhi bowlers to the cleaners.

The flamboyant left-hander swung Dinda over midwicket for his first six, and then slammed him over long-on before pulling him over midwicket to spoil the bowler`s figures.
