WHAT THEY SAID

Quinton de Kock, Man of the match: I enjoyed the win at the end of the day. I just kept it simple. I've been batting well in the nets, and it was just a matter of doing well in the game. I knew eventually I would get a score, just had to capitalize on the opportunity.

Rohit Sharma, MI captain: The kind of cricket we are playing gives us a lot of confidence. It's important to have momentum with us, and it was a perfect day for us, getting those crucial two points. We did everything right, but there are still some things we can improve on. We were good with the ball and restricted them to 160-odd. We need one set batsman to finish off the game in general, and some set batsmen got out today, but I don't want to point fingers because chasing has been difficult in this tournament. Given the conditions, we need to come out and play good cricket, and keep a calm head while chasing. It's important to have partnerships and we did that today, which got us over the line.

Ishan Kishan: When I was batting, the middle overs were pretty important for us to keep the momentum going. We needed few runs. It was good overall, but I did not finish the match. It was important for me and Surya to finish the match but it's still a good learning for us. Most of our batsmen are attacking, they are very good at the back end. We have scored around 190 many times in this tournament. We knew that we just needed to back our instincts and we needed to be positive. The pressure was there because DC have a very good bowling line-up and they have won matches before in these situations. Suryakumar Yadav has been performing very well throughout the season and in the previous seasons also. I am just trying to take some experience from him.

Shreyas Iyer, DC captain: We were 10-15 short. 175 would have looked completely different. We really missed out when Stoinis got run out. He was hitting the ball really well and also seeing the ball like a football. That is something we need to work on. We need to work on our fielding as well. Overall they outplayed us in all departments. We need to work on our mindset next game. The ball didn't stop as it did in the first innings. I feel it is important for us to not take anything lightly. There are certain elements we need to work on. We have no idea when Rishabh is back. I spoke to the doctor, and he said he will be resting for a week.

HIGHLIGHTS

Mumbai Indians win by five wickets to move to the top of the IPL 2020 table


MI 166/5 after 19.4 overs:
Stoinis to bowl and Krunal is on strike. And what a disastrous start to the over. Stoinis bowls it slower and onto the pads and that is precisely what the batsman wanted. Krunal works it down to fine leg for four. Meanwhile, Prithvi has misfielded at point again to help the Mumbai batters steal a run. With one required off three balls, Krunal knocks it across comfortably, clearing the infield, to the square leg region for a four.

MI 156/5 after 19 overs: Nortje concedes only three off the penultimate over! Wow! Mumbai needs seven off the last.

MI 153/5 after 18 overs: Prithvi Shaw is turning out to be a disaster on the field today. He drops Kishan at deep square leg and to make matters worse the ball lobs into the boundary for a six! Off the very next ball, however, Rabada gets rid of Ishan. Axar, running in from the boundary pulls off a stunner to send the Mumbai batsman back to the dugout.

MI 145/4 after 17 overs: Nortje's shorter delivery has been pulled for a four by Pollard. You just don't bowl that length to the Trinidadian big-hitter.

MI 137/4 after 16 overs: Stoinis hands Delhi just what it wanted. Two back-to-back wickets now after Hardik edges it to Carey. A strategic timeout follows, after which Kieron Pollard walks out to the middle. Ishan ends the over on a good note with a boundary.

MI 130/3 after 15 overs: Suryakumar Yadav is in the form of his life. He gets to his fifty off 30 deliveries, by flicking Rabada over square leg for a SIX. Yes you read that right! Two balls earlier, he had even hit him for a four. But Mumbai's celebrations are, however, shortlived as Rabada does exactly what he does best, i.e; take wickets. The last ball off the over has been miscued straight up in the air and comfortably pouched by Iyer. Hardik Pandya replaces Suryakumar at the crease.

MI 116/2 after 14 overs: Iyer goes for a bowling change. Can Stoinis take another wicket here to peg Mumbai right back? Ishan, however, tees off to loft a length ball over long on. He goes again, cutting a widish delivery between short third man and point for a four.

MI 102/2 after 13 overs: Axar has been hit for two boundaries now. The first one was a gift from Prithvi Shaw in the deep, who somehow lets one slip between his legs. The second one was pulled away into the same slot by Suryakumar but this happened to be way wide off an onrushing Prithvi.

MI 90/2 after 12 overs: Ashwin to bowl out. Suryakumar Yadav decides to make the most of a shorter delivery from Ashwin, sending the ball away to the deep extra cover fence for four. Mumbai run a single off each remaining delivery in the over.

MI 81/2 after 11 overs: Rabada has been sent in to bowl his second; Iyer is clearly targeting the new batsman at the crease. Rabada doesn't take a wicket but keeps it down to just three runs off this over - two of those wides.

MI 78/2 after 10 overs: Things go from bad to worse for Ashwin. He has now dropped Suryakumar off his own bowling at 17 off 11. The batsman had played it straight into his hands but the bowler somehow let it go. But, but, but.... A reversal of fortunes follows the very next ball as the spinner manages to send QDK back to the dugout. The left-handed batsman goes for the slog sweep but ends up edging it to Prithvi Shaw at deep backward square leg. Ishan Kishan comes out.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals celebrates the wicket of Quinton de Kock.   -  BCCI/IPL

 

MI 72/1 after 9 overs: QDK reaches his fifty off only 33 deliveries in style, punching Harshal Patel for two back-to-back boundaries. The South African looks to be in good touch - having scored two fifties in three matches now - and Suryakumar, at the other end, is giving him good company. Time for the strategic timeout.

Suryakumar Yadav and Quinton de Kock

Suryakumar Yadav and Quinton de Kock rebuild Mumbai's innings after Rohit Sharma's departure.   -  BCCI/IPL

 

MI 60/1 after 8 overs: Ashwin, who had gone for some runs in his first over, is back. Suryakumar Yadav takes on the offie now, swatting him for a boundary, piercing through the fielders running in from deep midwicket and long on.

MI 52/1 after 7 overs: Fifty comes up for Mumbai Indians after Suryakumar Yadav flicks one of Harshal Patel's length balls through backward square leg for a four.

MI 44/1 after 6 overs: QDK smokes Nortje for two huge sixes - first over backward square leg and then goes over long on. Can the Proteas 'keeper-batsman prove to be the game-changer for Mumbai tonight?

MI 31/1 after 5 overs: After being hit for a boundary earlier in the over, Axar Patel strikes! He has managed to remove the Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma, who was looking to go for a biggie but ended up playing it straight to Rabada at deep midwicket. Suryakumar Yadav walks in.

Rohit Sharma

Mumbai Indians' Rohit Sharma (in picture) was dismissed by Axar Patel in the match against Delhi Capitals on Sunday.   -  BCCI/IPL

 

MI 24/0 after 4 overs: Spin to be operated from both ends now. Ravichandran Ashwin has been taken for a ride by QDK - hits him for a maximum first towards long on and then follows it up with a boundary at backward square leg.

MI 12/0 after 3 overs:
Spin has been introduced and Axar Patel, the tournament's most economical bowler (4.50), thus far, has been brought into the attack. Clearly, Iyer means business. As Rohit continues to mistime, Mumbai deals only in singles and doubles.

MI 7/0 after 2 overs:
Nortje does a good job as well. Keeps it mostly fuller and concedes four. We are yet to see the first Mumbai boundary.

MI 3/0 after 1 over: Kagiso Rabada to get a feel of the new ball. Rohit Sharma to face him with Quinton de Kock accompanying Rohit at the other end. The South African pacer starts off with the perfect yorker. He ends up conceding three off the over continuously hitting 145+ kmphs; a run came off a wide.

MI INNINGS

Mumbai Indians need 163 to win

DC 162/4 after 20 overs: Bumrah concedes just one boundary off the last six balls. This is a good show at the death by one of India's finest!

DC 150/4 after 19 overs: A much-needed boundary comes for Delhi after 18 balls as Dhawan flicks it down towards deep fine leg. The side needs much more of that though.

DC 142/4 after 18 overs: Delhi seems a bit cautious after two quick wickets. Bumrah concedes only seven this over off singles and doubles.

DC 135/4 after 17 overs: That's a massive blow! A yes... no... maybe... and then before you know it, Chahar has whipped the bails right off the stumps at the non-striker's end off Suryakumar Yadav's throw. Stoinis way out of the line, has been made to walk. Alex Carey, in for the injured Rishabh Pant, faces the first ball this IPL.

Marcus Stoinis

The in-form Marcus Stoinis was dismissed with just over three overs to go in the innings.   -  BCCI/IPL

 

DC 127/3 after 16 overs: Dhawan beats the point fielder and later gets it wide of a diving Chahar near the ropes, as well, to get a boundary. He also gets to his fifty a ball later; it is his first half-century this season. Stoinis joins the party too, slamming two consecutive boundaries. Two wides this over only makes things worse for the host.

DC 111/3 after 15 overs: Krunal, after being sliced for a four off the first ball, bowls it short of a length and Iyer has swung it straight down Boult's throat. Rohit Sharma is a much relieved man! But how long will that sense of relief last now that Marcus Stoinis has walked out on to the pitch after the strategic timeout. The Australian all-rounder has been in terrific form this season.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians' Krunal Pandya celebrates Shreyas Iyer's wicket with his teammates.   -  BCCI/IPL

 

DC 103/2 after 14 overs: Dhawan nonchalantly takes on Chahar as soon as he walks in to bowl, slamming him straight down the ground for a four. Meanwhile, Mumbai enters the triple figures.

DC 95/2 after 13 overs: The spinners are keeping the runs in check tonight with a little slower wicket assisting them in their endeavour. Krunal goes for four.

DC 91/2 after 12 overs: Bumrah's back into the attack. Will he provide Rohit Sharma and Mumbai Indians with the much-needed breakthrough? Nope. Not for now at least. Some number-cruching would show that there have been only eight dot balls out of the 46 deliveries Iyer and Dhawan have faced tonight.

DC 85/2 after 11 overs: Chahar mixes it up well as the batsmen restrict themselves to five singles.

DC 80/2 after 10 overs: Pattinson is being greeted with a boundary every over now. Iyer goes for it this time, pushing it well past the point fielder. The Australian pacer, however, comes back well, to bowl the perfect length the very next ball. The fifty-run stand for the batters come up three balls later and almost in celebration of that, Iyer arches back and utilises the bowler's pace to guide the next delivery over the head of the keeper for a four.

Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan

Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan are looking to stitch together a strong partnership.   -  BCCI/IPL

 

DC 67/2 after 9 overs: Chahar continues to pitch it short throughout the over but Iyer and Dhawan are not eager to go for the risky lofts.

DC 61/2 after 8 overs: Bowler Kieron Pollard and Rohit Sharma weren't happy about Rahul Chahar's failed attempt at point at stopping a boundary off Dhawan. Time for the strategic timeout.

DC 51/2 after 7 overs: The Pandya brothers have a not-so-friendly exchange after Iyer and Dhawan steal a run off an overthrow. The batsmen settle for just the singles and doubles.

DC 46/2 after 6 overs: The PowerPlay is up and Delhi is up and running as well! After Dhawan works the first ball of the over down towards the third man fence for a boundary, Iyer tees off too by hitting Pattinson for two back-to-back fours.

DC 32/2 after 5 overs: Spin has been introduced early for the Mumbai Indians and it has done the trick yet again! Krunal Pandya has trapped Rahane plumb in front. Shikhar Dhawan frees his arms, two balls later, for a stylish slogsweep to the stands near deep midwicket to mark the first maximum of the day.

DC 23/1 after 4 overs: Jasprit Bumrah, who has the best figures in an innings (4/20) for a bowler in IPL 2020, thus far, is into the attack. Just one run off it; it could have been more if not for an excellent diving effort at the covers by Ishan Kishan.

DC 22/1 after 3 overs:
Boult keeps things tight until he sprays one wide of off stump. It does take an edge of Rahane's willow but the batsman's safe. It flies away from the keeper towards the third man boundary.

DC 17/1 after 2 overs: Ajinkya Rahane welcomes James Pattinson with a glorious square drive for a boundary. The former Rajasthan Royals skipper, however, isn't done yet. Three balls later he pierces through the gap between cover and point with a beautiful drive. What a way to start off your debut!

DC 7/1 after 1 over:
Mumbai Indians' Trent Boult, the highest wicket-taker in the PowerPlay in IPL 2020, will start proceedings. Prithvi Shaw will face him and Shikhar Dhawan will accompany the 20-year-old at the non-striker's end. Aaand... we already have wicket number SIX for the Kiwi speedster within the first six overs of a match this season! Prithvi opens the face of his bat and the ball softly lobs to Krunal Pandya at cover. Ajinkya Rahane walks out to face his first delivery in this season of the T20 league.

DC INNINGS

- Rohit Sharma will play his 150th IPL match with the franchise tonight and a specially customised jersey to celebrate the occasion has been handed over to him by the side's Director of Cricket Operations, Zaheer Khan.

PLAYING XI

MI: Quinton de Kock (w), Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

DC: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (c), Alex Carey (w), Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

WHAT THEY SAID

Rohit Sharma, MI captain: It's a good challenge for us, we know the conditions here. We need to restrict them to a decent total. We are playing with the same team.

Shreyas Iyer, DC skipper: We bat first. I think we are doing pretty well while defending. The ground also plays an important role. The wicket looks amazing. We hope it gets slower in the second innings. Two changes - Alex Carey comes in for Hetmyer. Rahane comes in for Pant.

TOSS

PITCH REPORT

100

It's the same pitch that was used for the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab yesterday. So we can expect it to be quite dry and the team batting first should hold an advantage. Deep Dasgupta, earlier, had also found patches that sounded hollow underneath, but there were some which didn't. It also has lesser grass cover than the Dubai track. The surface might be a lot slower as well.   -  BCCI/IPL

 

MATCH PREVIEW BY AMOL KARHADKAR

It’s a face-off between the pre-tournament favourites. It’s a face-off to open up a gap in the points table. No wonder then that the clash between defending champion Mumbai Indians and in-form Delhi Capitals on a Super Sunday would be as mouthwatering as the French Open grand finale.

Mumbai Indians may have won the IPL title a whopping four times while the Delhi outfit is the only franchise yet to make it to the IPL final. But when it comes to taking each other on, there’s little to choose between the sides. In the 24 IPL matches between the two sides, both have won 12 games apiece.

The build-up

Besides being high on confidence and virtually every aspect of the game working for their respective outfit, both the teams will keep their fingers crossed over availability of a key Indian member of its side. Suryakumar Yadav, en route his Man of the Match-winning knock against Rajasthan Royals earlier in the week, took a blow on his helmet and couldn't field during the title defence. The stylish batsman stressed on Thursday that he will be ready to go come Sunday, it remains to be seen if he has fully recovered from concussion.

The Capitals, on the other hand, will be sweating over Rishabh Pant’s availability. The 'keeper-batsman hobbled for the latter half of the Capitals’ defence against Royals on Friday night after apparently pulling his hamstring during the game. While the Capitals have remained tight-lipped about his fitness, the management will be hoping for Pant to be available. Pant will be critical not just with regard to maintaining the combination but also due to the fact that he has a better record against MI than Prithvi Shaw and Shreyas Iyer.

The key contest

It’s a no-brainer that the pace versus top-order will be on display all through the match. While the MI pace triumvirate of Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult and James Pattinson has been lethal so far, it will be tested by an in-form batting order, with every member of the Capitals’ top-six having come good so far. Similarly, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje - an on-song Proteas pace duo - will be planning to put brakes on Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock up front and Kieron Pollard and the Pandya brothers in the death.

Besides, R. Ashwin’s mini-battle against the MI lefties could play a decisive role in in the outcome of the game.
