Mumbai Indians defended 142 at the Wankhede, which is often considered a batting friendly pitch, and all the credit has to go to Kiwi pacer Mitchell McClenaghan, who picked up the early wickets.

He impressed with his pace, and was accurate enough to cause havoc in Delhi Daredevils's top order. He accounted for in-form Sanju Samson, and dangerous pair of Shreyas Iyer and Corey Anderson. He then came back to bowl well at the death, when Delhi needed boundaries. With Lasith Malinga out of form, McCleneghan might well have to spearhead the Mumbai pace attack.
