Pacers Mitchell McClenaghan scalped three wickets, while Jasprit Bumrah took two as Mumbai Indians recorded their sixth win on the trot with a comfortable 14-run victory over Delhi Daredevils in an IPL match on Saturday.

Daredevils, believed to have the best bowling attack, restricted the hosts 142 for eight but were awful in run chase, managing for 128 for seven in 20 overs. The South African hit four boundaries and a six.

Man of the Match Mitchell McClenaghan stood out with the ball, with figures of 3-23 from his quota of four overs.

The Delhi batsmen had only themselves to blame for the defeat as a lot of them fell to poor shot selection which put the visitors under pressure early in their innings.

McClenaghan sent back Sanju Samson in the next over when Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma pulled off an easy catch at mid-off. Then Mumbai struck two more times - Rishabh Pant poked uncertainly at Bumrah and edged to slip, and Nair, feet going nowhere, chopped Hardik on. It mattered little as Morris joined his countryman at 6-24 with Rabada still new to the crease and the Delhi chase in tatters.

However, the batsmen could not complement the good work done by the bowlers and suffered their fourth loss in six matches.

Earlier, Delhi rode on an excellent bowling effort to restrict Mumbai to 142/8.

Kagiso Rabada, 44, and Chris Morris, 52 not out, made sure Delhi wasn't totally humiliated.

Buttler, the star of Mumbai s game against Kings XI Punjab, got a life on 11 after being dropped by wicket-keeper Rishab Pant on the last ball of the second over.

The Englishman, however, failed to seize the advantage, getting out after facing 18 balls and hitting three boundaries and two sixes, when he was brilliantly run out by a direct hit from Samson.

While the pair resisted for a few overs, runs were hard to come by with Delhi Daredevils being all over their opponents.

Tare played towards cover and set off for a quick single, there an alert Pandya picked the ball and ran towards the bowling end. Zaheer Khan led side will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointing defeat when they face Mumbai Indians on their home turf.

Pollard, who added 36 for the sixth wicket with Hardik, faced 29 balls and helped the ball to the ropes on four occasions.

As such, there was an intensity to their bowling and fielding from the off - and Delhi had no answer. For the uninitiated, it was certainly a surprise to see Rabada coming ahead of Morris but the young player proved the decision right with one of the grittiest innings seen in this IPL.

This left Rabada's compatriot Morris, and Aussie Pat Cummins needing to score 23 runs off the last over, to win it for DD.
