Half of Delhi's team returned to the pavilion for 77 runs when Axar Patel (9) was victimized by Trent Boult. Shimron Hetmyer returned to the pavilion after scoring 15 runs off 8 balls with the help of 2 fours when he was caught by Rohit on the very first ball of the 14th over of the innings by Bumrah.

Earlier, Delhi Capitals restricted Mumbai Indians to 129 runs for 8 wickets on the strength of the bowlers led by Avesh Khan and Axar Patel. Akshar took 21 runs in 4 overs, while Avesh took 3-3 wickets for 15 runs in the same overs. Enrique Norteje was also economical, spending 19 runs in 4 overs and took one wicket. For Mumbai, only Suryakumar Yadav could bat in the rhythm. He scored 33 runs in 26 balls with the help of 2 fours and 2 sixes.


Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma, who came to the crease after losing the toss, hit a four on the first ball of the innings against Norteje, but in the second over, Rabada was caught trying to pull a bouncer from Avesh Khan.

Suryakumar Yadav, who was running in a bad rhythm, sweeped Ravichandran Ashwin for a six in the third over, while Quinton de Kock (19) welcomed Kagiso Rabada with a six in the fifth over. However, in the first 6 overs, the team could score only 35 runs for one wicket.


Suryakumar tried his best, but...

Axar Patel, who came to bowl in the seventh over, walked the De Cock. Continuing his aggressive approach against Ashwin, Suryakumar sent the ball across the boundary twice in the 8th over of the innings. He also sent the ball to the visitors against Rabada in the 10th over but missed the delivery of Axar Patel and Rabada took a brilliant catch to stop him from playing the big innings.


Akshar ended Saurabh Tiwary's 15-run knock by getting his next over caught by Pant. Nortje's slow ball, who came back to bowl in the 15th over of the innings, hit Kieron Pollard (6 runs) with the inside of the bat and hit the wickets. It was also the first maiden over of the innings. After this, Avesh spent just one run in the 16th over.


Krunal-Hardik could not blast Mumbai's batsmen's trouble can be gauged from the fact that it took 8 balls for Krunal Pandya (13) to open the account. However, he hit a four on the fourth ball of the 17th over, which was the first boundary for the team after 35 balls. 12 runs were scored from this over of Rabada, due to which the team completed the century of runs.


Hardik Pandya (17) then hit two fours against Nortje but was bowled on the yorker of Avesh on the first ball of the 19th over. After this, Avesh also took his third wicket by bowling Nathan Coulter-Nile (1).

For bowling in the last over, Jayant Yadav (11) and Krunal hit sixes against Ashwin to take the score to 129 runs. Ashwin took one wicket for 41 runs in 4 overs, while Rabada did not get any success.
