Sidelights:

One would dare say that if it was not Delhi Daredevils and there was some other top of the table teams, Mumbai Indians would have lost this game after they collapsed like a pack of cards in last few overs of their batting. MI couldn’t even complete their allotted 20 overs. But Delhi Daredevil’s unplanned chase helped them to win the game without having any trouble at all. Other team would definitely have build up a psychological edge over MI’s collapse and would have chased down this total on a placid track. But then this is how DD played this season.
