East London: Sachin Tendulkar has shouldered the blame for Mumbai Indian's defeat against Delhi Daredevils.
Tendulkar held his hands up yesterday to accept the total responsibility for his one over that changed the course of the match after they seemed to have put the brakes on Delhi Daredevils at one stage.
That one over cost 19 runs with De Villiers hitting three fours and a six, all at the mid-wicket area, to turn the match in Delhi's favour.

"We bowled well and fielded well but that one over changed everything," said Tendulkar at the post-match ceremony after Delhi Daredevils had registered a seven-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.
"With the slow bowlers doing well I thought that if I come in... I didn't want to give them the pace," Tendulkar said.
