The sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been a rather predictable one thus far, making for boring viewing. Four of the teams – Delhi Daredevils, Pune Warriors, defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders, and Kings XI Punjab have been exceedingly poor, as a result of which they find themselves at the bottom of the table.

Delhi Daredevils finally tasted their first victory of IPL 6 after thrashing Mumbai Indians by 9 wickets with 18 balls to spare this evening at the Feroz Shah Kotla. This is Delhi’s first victory which has come after a string of six defeats in a row!
