Indians edge past Chargers
Mumbai Indians defeated Indian Premier League whipping boys Deccan Chargers by five wickets in a low-scoring match at the Wankhede Stadium.
Deccan have now won once in eight matches and were bowled out for just 100 as Lasith Malinga worked his familiar magic with four for 16.
Harbhajan Singh, with two for 13, was even stingier in his four overs, while James Franklin also kept the scoring down with two for 18.
Shikhar Dawan top-scored with 29 at less than a run-a-ball, while JP Duminy managed 25 not out in 24 deliveries.
Mumbai did not knock off their target with quite the ease that might have been expected, largely due to Dale Steyn's four-over return of two for 10.
But 42 in 48 balls from Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu's 19no at the end were enough to see the hosts to 101 for five with 11 deliveries remaining.
