Mumbai Indians proved just too good for Delhi Capitals as they went on to win the Qualifier 1 with ease by
Delhi Capitals opted to field first and did well to get rid of Rohit Sharma for a golden duck. What followed was De Kock’s brilliance of 25-ball 40. He had a good partnership with Suryakumar Yadav who carried the innings after De Kock’s dismissal.
He took 38 deliveries to score 51 and left the floor open to Ishan Kishan. While Pollard and Pandya senior couldn’t contribute today, Pandya junior once again did what he is good at, smashed 5 sixes.
The excellent partnership between Kishan(55) and Pandya(37) took Mumbai to 200.
In return, Boult stole the limelight from everyone by dismissing Shaw and Rahane in 1st over. Bumrah then came up with his pinpoint yorker to get rid of Dhawan.
From 0 for 3, DC never really recovered and kept losing wickets at regular intervals.
Stoinis, however, fought back hard to score 65 before getting out to Bumrah, who ended up with 4 wickets.
Axar Patel’s late cameo of 42 saved the team from embarrassment and they finished their 20 overs with 141.
DC will now face the winner of RCB versus SRH in the eliminator.
