Bangalore tries but loses;Chennai loses despite great batting

Hello everybody,yesterday there were two matches.They were:-
Delhi Daredevils vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
Delhi Daredevils won by 17 runs.
Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians
Mumbai Indians won by 5 wickets.

Delhi Daredevils vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
This match started with Delhi batting first.With every batsman batting very nicely Delhi was able to make 183-4.KM Jadhav(50*) stole the show when he used his batting skills in the end of Delhi's innings which made it easier for Delhi to score such a big total.Jadhav scored his maiden 50 not out in 29 balls with 5 fours and 2 sixes.The target set for Bangalore was 184 runs in 20 overs which was surely a difficult one.They started with a bang with Kallis(27) and Pandey(39) opening.They both made a partnership of 71 runs in 55 balls when Kallis got out.After that only Virat Kohli(38) was able to score more than 30 runs.This led up to Bangalore scoring only 166-9 giving Delhi the win.
Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians
The match started with Chennai batting first.It looked like Mumbai Indians had it all with them when they took out Parthiv Patel(8) and Matthew Hayden(20) both at 38 runs.But that was not the case when Raina(83*) and Badrinath(55*) made a thrilling partnership of 142 runs in just 90 balls making 180-2 as the total of Chennai Super Kings.Earlier yesterday in the first match Delhi had scored 184 runs and won that match so it looked like that Chennai is gonna win that easily.But Sachin Tendulkar and Shikhar Dhawan had some other plans when they started their batting with a partnership of 92 runs in just 53 balls.Their partnership ended with Shikhar Dhawan getting out but he made 56 runs with 5 fours and 3 sixes.Sachin Tendulkar was the great one yesterday when he scored 72 runs and got out in the second last over of the match.Mumbai Indians got back in the match in the 16th over when Perera gave them 19 runs.Before this over it was 48 runs to win from 30 balls which turned into 29 runs to win from 24 balls after that over.Mumbai Indians made 184-5 to win this game with 6 balls remaining.
