IPL 5, Match 19: As it happened

Delhi outclassed in-form Mumbai Indians in every department as they cruised to a comfortable win.

13th over: 80 for 3. And Sehwag falls! Sehwag dances down the track and and once again did not get to the pitch of the ball and manages to find fielder at long on. Ojha finally gets his man but its too little too late.

12th over: 74 for 2. Sehwag and Jayawardene are taking their time in the middle and playing it safe. After three singles, Jayawardene hits a wristy shot for four through the square leg boundary.

11th over: 67 for 2. Ojha continues and Delhi batsmen pick up nine from the over. One can sense that Sehwag is itching to cut loose. Three tows and three singles comes from this over.

10th over: 58 for 2. Clint McKay is back into the attack and bowls a pretty exciting over. Rohit Sharma misses the chance of running Sehwag out from the first ball and a leading edge off the second of Jayawardene falls in no mans land. However, DD manages to pick up five from the over.

9th over: 53 for 2. Mahela Jayawardene, right handed bat, comes to the crease after fall of Pietersen. Pragyan Ojha bowls a tight over giving just one from it.

8th over: 52 for 2. Nothing is going right for Mumbai Indians as the moment. Levi drops a sitter of Sehwag. It should have been taken. Sehwag plays the uppish cut, it goes straight to Levi at third man who spills it. Adding insult to injury, Sehwag hits him for four through long off. But Singh manages to pick up Kevin Pietersen off the last ball. KP goes for a pull but only manages to find Davy Jacobs at mid wicket.

7th over: 44 for 1. Pragyan Ojha, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack and bowls a neat and tidy over. He gives just three from the over and stops Sehwag to cut loose.

6th over: 41 for 1. Finally a breakthrough for Mumbai Indians and RP Singh. Ojha tries to pull it away but gets a leading edge and Harbhajan comes in from midwicket to take an easy catch. Meanwhile, Pietersen comes in and gets off the mark in a fine fashion with a two and follows it with a boundary past the point fielder.

5th over: 34 for 0. Clint McKay, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack. This is his first IPL. Twelve runs from the over as Naman Ojha pulls him for a four over the midwicket boundary and then follows it with a three through the square leg region. Meanwhile, Sehwag glances the last ball down to the fine leg boundary for another four.

4th over: 22 for 0. Delhi Daredevils are picking up a boundary in every over. This time Naman Ojha gets a four through the fine leg boundary. But once again bowler comes back well and bowls five dots in trot. Mumbai need wickets quickly.

3rd over: 18 for 0. Virender Sehwag hits Munaf Patel for four off the ball of the over as he paddled the ball down to the fine leg boundary. But bowlers comes back well and bowl five dot balls on trot.

2nd over: 14 for 0. RP Singh, left-arm fast medium, comes into the attack and gives away six from the over. He is bit wayward in line and length as he bowls two wide balls. Mumbai Indians can't afford to give extra runs.

1st over: 8 for 0. Naman Ojha and Virender Sehwag are in the middle to start Delhi's chase. Munaf Patel will open the attack for Mumbai Indians and Sehwag slams him for a flat six over the point. Good start for Delhi Daredevils as eight runs comes from the first over.

Mumbai Indian innings:

20th over: 92 all out. Ajit Agarkar finishes it up. He keeps it full and straight, Ojha makes room and looks to go through the off side but misses it. It is the lowest score in this year's IPL.

Ojha b Agarkar 3(12)

19th over: 92 for 9. Umesh Yadav gives just three from his last over. He finishes with figures of 2 for 11 from his four. Can Mumbai get to 100-run mark?

18th over: 89 for 9. Harbhajan Singh is fighting the lone battle for Mumbai Indians as he hits Morkel's full toss for four through deep midwicket boundary but he did not long last as he edges the next ball straight to the wicketkeeper. His little cameo comes to an end.

Harbhajan c Naman Ojha b Morne Morkel 33(22)

17th over: 83 for 8. Umesh Yadav continues bowling with great pace and intent. Keeps the batsmen down to just three from this over. He is mixing his pace brilliantly.

16th over: 80 for 8. Morne Morkel is back into the attack and picks up RP Singh with a yorker. It was a matter of time. Morne keeps it full and straight and knocks RP Singh stumps all over. Mumbai are in danger of being dismissed under 100.

RP Singh b Morne Morkel 0(4)

15th over: 79 for 7. And that's the end of Clint McKay. Pathan bowls a neat and tidy last over. He keeps the batsmen down to just ones or twos. McKay puts looks to loft over long off but mishits it completely to Umesh Yadav. Pathan finishes with the figures of 1 for 12 from four.

Clint McKay c Umesh Yadav b Irfan Pathan 8(15)

14th over: 75 for 6. Shahbaz Nadeem is back into the attack and Harbhajan is in no mood to slow down. He steers him between the keeper and short third man for four. Another six runs from the over. Mumbai Indians will hope to get at least 110-120 from here now.

13th over: 69 for 6. Irfan Pathan is back into the attack and bowls a pretty decent and is unlucky as Harbhajan edge flies for a four through first slip. Mumbai Indians need many more like that.

12th over: 62 for 6. Finally a six for Mumbai Indians. Harbhajan Singh was desperate for that one. Harbhajan slams Agarakar over the long off for a huge six and then follows it up with two back-to-back boundaries. First one straight down the bowlers throat, and second one he hits it like a trace of bullet through point.

11th over: 45 for 6. This is going from bad to worse for Mumbai Indians. They are falling like pack of cards. This time it's Dinesh Karthik's turn to take a long way back to the pavilion. Karthik goes over mid on but mistimes the slap straight to Kevin Pietersen. Umesh Yadav picks up his man.

Dinesh Karthik c Pietersen b Umesh Yadav 3(4)

10th over: 43 for 5. Rohit Sharma's innings comes to an end. Once again he goes for a cross batted shot which takes a leading edge that pops up to deep square leg for a simple catch to Ross Taulor. Agarkar picks up his first wicket. Mumbai India's skipper Harbhajan Singh comes in the middle.

Rohit Sharma c Ross Taylor b Agarkar 29(27)

9th over: 40 for 4. Umesh Yadav, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack and picks up a big big wicket of Kieron Pollard. It's a poor shot by him under the circumstances. Pollard makes room and looks to heave across the line, ends up with a mishit and finds Ross Taylor. MI are in a deep deep trouble.

Pollard c Ross Taylor b Umesh Yadav 1(3)

8th over: 37 for 3. It's a terrible, terrible mix up. This is suicidal by Ambati Rayudu as he gets himself run out. Agarkar hits Rayudu on the pad with one that angled. The batsman set off for a leg bye, Rohit sends him back but it's too late. Disaster for Mumbai. However Rohit is living on the knife edge as another top edge goes for four.

7th over: 30 for 2. Rohit Sharma is turning it on. He is the key man for Mumbai and he gets another top edge off Morne Morkel for a four over the wicketkeepers head. He quickly moves into 20s. Seven comes from the over.

6th over: 23 for 2. Shahbaz Nadeem almost picks a third one but Mahela drops a tough chance and give Rayudu a lifeline. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma on the other hand takes the charge and hits him for four through extra cover boundary off the last ball of the over.

5th over: 16 for 2. Morne Morkel, right-arm fast, comes into the attack and Rohit Sharma hits him for two boundaries in a row. First one Rohit hits a wonderful shot over the mid off and the second one a lucky top edge over the wicketkeeper for a four. Meanwhile, as the batsmen tries to get a quick single, the throw from the fielder hits Rayudu's ankle and physio comes into treat him.

4th over: 7 for 2. Another one goes as Nadeem picks up his second scalp. Dangerous Levi to drive hard through the off side and leaves a huge gap between pad and bat and only manages and inside edge on to his stumps. This is great start for Delhi.

Levi b Shahbaz Nadeem 1(4)

3rd over: 3 for 1. Rohit Sharma, right handed bat, comes to the crease. Meanwhile, Pathan bowls another superb over as he gives just 2 from the over. He keeps it nice and tight and allows just two single from his second over. Excellent stuff.

2nd over: 3 for 1. Shahbaz Nadeem, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack and picks up a wicket on the fifth ball of the over after bowling the first four balls of the over dot. Great stuff by the spinner. Jacobs looks for a slog sweep but misses it completely.

Davy Jacobs b Shahbaz Nadeem 0(10)

1st over: 2 for 0. Richard Levi and Davy Jacobs are at the crease for Mumbai Indians and Irfan Pathan opens the attack for Delhi Daredevils. He bowls a very good over giving away just two leg byes of it.
