Mishra's Hat-Trick Helped Delhi Dare Devils to Win by 12 Runs against Deccan Chargers

Leg spinner Amit Mishra took a hat-trick as Delhi Daredevils beat Deccan Chargers by 12 runs in their Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 match at the Feroze Shah Kotla stadium here Thursday. Chasing a target of 195, Deccan Chargers scored 182 for the loss of nine wickets in 20 overs. Daredevils’ Gautam Gambhir was the top scorer with 79 while Shikhar Dhawan made 68.

Mishra impressed with the ball through out the innings and he held his nerve admirably as he bowled the last over with Deccan still in with a shout. His hat trick in the selfsame over effectively snuffed out Deccan’s challenge and he finished the match with excellent figures of five for 17 off three and a half overs.
