With such a minuscule target to win the Delhi Daredevils made sure to loose no wickets during the first 8 overs. J.P. Duminy and Bhajji though got the MI's back on track with a couple of crucial blows as I started jumping from seat. But a beautiful half-century from the inform AB made sure that DD cross the line and get home.

The master scored just 15 runs and bowled one over to give 19 runs which became a turning point in the game as the momentum shifted from MI to DD.

During the post match ceremony this is what Tendlya had to say, "We were very much there in the game except my big over. When the spinners were bowling and the ball started gripping, so I thought I can squeeze in a couple of overs. Probably that was the over when things started changing. We are pushed in the corner, but that's not the end of the road for us. We will keep trying. "

    It was strange MI making 157 despite 8 wickets on hand. I think this mindset of scoring after 15 overs is becoming barrier. 20-20 is highly dymamic game where strategies need quick changes.

    if you have wickets on hand best strategy is to make runs in deep fine leg ,sq leg and mid wicket. Most bowlers bowl outside off stump. in such case to take stance keeping leg stump open .This will lure bowler to bowl on leg. use direction of bowl for hitting
