Mumbai Indians beat Deccan by 5 wickets







Pin It



Mumbai Indians survived a fiery pace bowling spell from Dale Steyn (2-10) as they beat bottom-placed Deccan Chargers by five wickets in a low-scoring Indian Premier League match.

Chasing a small target of 101 for a win on a lively Wankhede pitch which offered assistance to pacers, Steyn made a stiff contest out of the match with a superb pace bowling display but the Chargers finally found their total too small to defend.

Rohit Sharma top-scored with a lucky but plucky knock of 42 as Mumbai reached the target with eleven balls to spare.

Earlier, Mumbai rode on paceman Lasith Malinga’s 4-16 and captain Harbhajan Singh’s 2-13 to shoot out the Chargers for just 100 in 18.4 overs.

The Mumbai victory, after the heavy defeat suffered against Delhi Daredevils two nights ago, helped them leapfrog from seventh to third place in the league table with 10 points from nine games, behind Delhi Daredevils (14) and Kolkata Knight Riders (11) while the Chargers remained at the bottom with three points from eight games.
