After setting up a mammoth target of 219 runs, Mumbai Indians bowlers displayed brilliant skills to beat Delhi Daredevils by a convincing 98 runs in the Indian Premier League encounter on Wednesday.

The hosts were cruising well when openers Sehwag and Dilshan were at the crease. But Lasith Malinga gave Mumbai the first breakthrough when he clean bowled Tillakaratne Dilshan (17 off 12).

The visitors got a big relief when Bravo got his first wicket when swashbuckling Virender Sehwag (26 off 16) was caught by Ambati Rayudu off Bravo.

Soon after Bravo clean bowled AB de Villiers to scalp his second wicket of the match.

The Daredevils then lost all hope and continued to lose wickets at regular intervals.

Earlier, Sachin Tendulkar (63) and Saurabh Tiwary (61) smashed blistering half-centuries to propel Mumbai Indians to a huge 218 for seven against the Daredevils.

Tendulkar drove, pulled and cut the Delhi Daredevils bowlers with ease after being invited to bat.

Tendulkar's knock, his fourth IPL fifty, came off in just 32 balls and was studded with 11 fours in front of a packed Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium crowd.

Young Tiwary took the cue from his captain and smashed an aggressive 37-ball 61, laced with four fours and three sixes to take Mumbai Indians to the highest total of IPL-3 so far.

They surpassed their own earlier highest of 212 for six which they made against Rajasthan Royals in their first match on March 13 in Ahmedabad.

Ambati Rayudu also contributed a 21-ball 34 with the help of a four and three sixes.

Tendulkar, who was dropped on 36 by Amit Mishra, shared three substantial partnerships in quick time.

First he raised a 38-run stand with his opening partner Sanath Jayasuriya and then shared a 36-run partnership from 17 balls with Aditya Tare.

Together with Tiwary he rattled up a quickfire 48 from 26 balls to lay the foundation for a big score. PTI
