Rohit Sharma, Player of the Match
“Winning the game is the most important. We have been working hard since the first game. We had a camp in Mumbai, and getting the result in our favour feels good. First win is always special. We played a Test match here, the pitch looked different. Getting a slow bowler was important on this pitch. The spinners kept us in the game. We needed to bat well to chase the total. I thought everyone put their hand up. We had to make it count for the team. I needed to make use of the powerplay, I knew we had to keep attacking and take my chances. I tried to create a partnership, had a good communication with Tilak. It was important for us to have a good partnership. We have young guys who haven’t played IPL before, so it’s important to have faith in them. Give them that confidence, and we are trying to have a healthy atmosphere in the dressing room. Don’t need to make drastic changes, that’s really important for us.”
David Warner after the loss
“You look at the last three IPL games we have witnessed, they have been amazing. Wrong end of it today, but the guys were fantastic. Rohit played a fantastic knock at the top of the order. Nortje is world-class and that’s what we expect from him, Mustafiz too. Timmy David was on the wrong side of it, so I tried to keep it at stump-height. I think from the last three games, we’ve some positives but we shouldn’t lost wickets in clumps. Axar should bat in the top four the way he is striking the ball. From the last three games we have played, there are a lot of positives.”
MI 173/4 in 20 Overs
What a thrilling finish to the game as Mumbai needed two runs in 1 ball and David ran his life for the two runs, putting in a valiant dive as Mumbai clinches a thriller to beat Delhi by six wickets.
MI 168/4 in 19 Overs
Cameron Green hammers Mustafizur for a maximum as the ball sails over the deep mid-wicket for a maximum and that was a massive hit.

MI 153/4 in 18 Overs
Anrich Nortje bowls a brilliant over and most importantly didn’t concede a boundary as Cameron Green and Tim David had to settle in singles as Mumbai needs 20 from 12 balls.

Cameron Green arrived and was off the mark with a boundary to ease the pressure.
MI 139/3 in 16 Overs
Tilak started off with a boundary as he dispatched Mukesh over the backward point region and then majestically smoked the fast bowler over the deep mid-wicket for a maximum. The youngster then skipped down the track to dispatch the bowler over the extra cover region to tilt the match in Mumbai’s favour. Mukesh had his man as he dismissed Tilak, who found the fielder at the deep mid-wicket while trying to flick the fast bowler. Suryakumar Yadav’s poor form continues as Mukesh picked two wickets in towo balls to bring Delhi back in the game.
MI 123/1 in 15 Overs

MI 82/1 in 9 Overs
Delhi has pulled back things as they have slowed down Mumbai’s progress as the required rate and the current rate are almost equal at 8 rpo.

MI 49/0 in 4 Overs
Spin into the attack and it’s Lalit Yadav who has been brought in as Delhi searches for an early breakthrough. Both Rohit and Ishan see through the over and haven’t taken any unwanted risk. The extra ball after Lalit conceded a wide, turned viciously as Ishan got an outside edge and the ball ran away to the fence. Mumbai won’t mind.
MI 42/0 in 3 Overs

DC 166/9 in 19 Overs

Abhishek Porel then skied one as Behrendorff picked his third wicket. This is some collapse from Delhi!
DC 165/5 in 18 Overs
A brilliant half-century from Axar Patel and he has singlehandedly helped Delhi cross the 150-run mark en route to his maiden IPL half-century. To batting from the all-rounder and he hasn’t put a foot wrong ever since his arrival. Holds the key for a strong finish.
DC 151/5 in 17 Overs

Thankfully Surya is fine and the partnership between Warner and Axar is worth 52 off 26 balls.
DC 136/5 in 16 Overs
David Warner hits a brilliant half-century in 43 balls and the Delhi skipper has been the lone top-order batsman to negotiate with the spin and pace of Mumbai. Top knock from the skipper and the Australian has held the innings together and will look to carry his bat through.

Axar Patel provides the much-needed impetus by smashing two consecutive sixes – one over the extra cover region and the other one, Surya just misjudged as he ran in initially, approached the ball and then realised that he had to paddle back but it was too late. Much needed from Delhi’s point of view.
DC 110/5 in 14 Overs

DC 103/5 in 13 Overs
Piyush Chawla makes up for the drop catch as he castles Lalit Yadav to put Mumbai Indians on top with a brilliant googly to pick his third wicket. Lalit went for an expansive drive and missed it completely as the ball knocked down the leg stump. Delhi in trouble with Warner playing a lone hand. Chawla finished with 4-0-22-3 and Rohit Sharma will be very pleased with the leg-spinner’s effort.
DC 95/4 in 12 Overs
Piyush Chawla not only dropped David Warner on 37 but also missed a run-out opportunity as Delhi is being caged and has got no momentum. Warner has been scratchy and Lalit Yadav is yet to fire.

Mumbai in complete control of the match as Lalit Yadav joins skipper Warner. Just three runs and a wicket and this is brilliant bowling from Chawla.
DC 85/3 in 10 Overs
Riley Meredith back into the attack and Yash Dhull fails to light fireworks on his debut game. Meredith picks an important wicket at a very key moment in the game as Delhi loses its third wicket and it’s the debutant who has to depart.

DC 78/2 in 9 Overs
Piyush Chawla breaks the stand and the leg spinner brings in all his experience to remove Manish Pandey as the batsman falls after getting off to a good start. Pandey skipped down the track and took on the leg spinner, hoping to clear the fielder at long-off but Behrendorff took a good catch.
DC 75/1 in 8 Overs
A puff of dust explodes from the pitch and there is ample evidence that there is turn and bounce in the pitch as a delivery from Shokeen beat everyone including the keeper.

DC 59/1 in 7 Overs
Piyush Chawla is into the attack and the spinner starts well giving eight runs in his opening over and Warner has largely struggled to time the ball but Pandey has been striking well.
DC 51/1 in 6 Overs
Shokeen gets the ball to turn on a dry surface and the off-spinner is brave to toss the ball up to Warner. Pandey has come out with a very positive intent as he skips down the track and smacks the skipper through the mid-on and then completes the PowerPlay with another boundary, this time going over the mid-wicket region. The fifty is up for Delhi.
DC 42/1 in 5 Overs
Riley Meredith into the attack and Manish Pandey with an aggressive intent picks two boundaries first by skipping down the track and dispatching the bowler to the long-on boundary and then gets an under-edge as the ball beats the keeper and runs away to the boundary.
DC 34/1 in 4 Overs
Excellent move from Rohit Sharma as he brings in spin early and Hrithik Shokeen strikes early to remove Prithvi Shaw.

Early blow for Delhi and Shaw misses another opportunity to give his team a good start.
DC 29/0 in 3 Overs
Cameron Green comes into the attack early but there is no stopping Warner as the Delhi skipper pockets two consecutive boundaries – one through the mid-wicket and then rides on the bounce to dispatch Green to the wide of third man boundary.
DC 19/0 in 2 Overs
Warner welcomes Arshad Khan into the attack with a fierce pull through the mid-wicket for a boundary and Prithvi Shaw is timing the ball well as he ends the over with a solid punch through the covers as the ball beats the fielder and wins the race.
DC 7/0 in 1 Over
Prithvi Shaw begins in his own style by driving Behrendorff down the ground for an excellent boundary with Warner off the mark in a single. Mumbai will be aiming for early wickets while Delhi’s openers will look to cash in the PowerPlay.
The umpires make their way into the middle and so as the Mumbai Indians, who will be keen to win the match. David Warner and Prithvi Shaw will open the innings for Delhi and for Mumbai it will be Jason Behrendorff who will start proceedings with the new ball.

David Warner at the Toss
“We would have done the same thing. For me it is about finding rhythm and as a whole group we gotta work harder and get sharper. We got a forced change, Khaleel Ahmed is injured and we got Yash Dhull in place of him. Also Rilee Rossouw makes way for Mustafizur Rahman. All the boys are up and about, we gotta adapt to the situations and pumped to be playing in front of the home ground.”
Rohit at the Toss
“We will bowl first. We batted in the first 2 games, didn’t do well enough. The pitch looks dry and probably take some turn and dew might also be a factor tonight. We got Riley Meredith in place of Stubbs. The other changes is about the impact players. We will see how it goes. When the chips are down you need the senior players to stand up. Jofra is not available.”
