Wicket: Anrich Nortje removes Hardik Pandya with a bouncer. Pandya plays it straight to Ajinkya Rahane at square-leg. But Mumbai Indians need just 1 run to win the title
Wicket: Kagiso Rabada now bowls Kieron Pollard for just 9 runs. But once again maybe it is too late. Mumbai Indians only need 10 runs from 17 balls to win.
Wicket: Lalit Yadav takes a brilliant catch to dismiss Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma. But is it too late? Rohit has played the pull shot extremely well throughout the IPL 2020 seasons but this ball from Anrich Nortje carried a little more height. Rohit though played the shot and Lalit Yadav takes a wonderful low diving catch at deep mid-wicket to give Delhi Capitals the breakthrough.
Wicket: Suryakumar Yadav sacrifices his wicket to keep Rohit Sharma at the crease. This was a big misunderstanding between both the batsmen and Rohit had gone for the run despite big shouts of no from Yadav. But the captain has looked in great touch and so Suryakumar had to sacrifice his wicket
Rohit Sharma in on song here. The Mumbai Indians captain smashed Praveen Dubey for 14 runs in the ninth over after three quiet overs. Rohit hit two lovely sixes off Dubey to once again Mumbai Indians in control of the chase.
Wicket: Marcus Stoinis does it once again for Delhi Capitals. Stoinis, who was out first ball, strikes with his first delivery and removes the dangerous Quinton de Kock. Stoinis bowls back of a length delivery and gets a thick outside edge from De Kock. Rishabh Pant takes a brilliant catch behind the stumps. de Kock c Pant b Stoinis 20(12)
Ravichandran Ashwin has started the proceedings for Delhi Capitals and he nearly had Rohit Sharma after the Mumbai Indians captain danced down the track and hit one over long-on. But the ball carried over the man stationed there and Mumbai take 8 runs off the first over.
Trent Boult gave Mumbai Indians a great start with the first ball dismissal of Marcus Stoinis and also the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane before Jayant Jadhav took the big wicket of Shikhar Dhawan to leave Delhi Capitals reeling at 22/3 in 3.3 overs. But Rishabh Pant (56) and Shreyas Iyer (65*) came together and shared a 96-run partnership to rescue the inning and help Delhi cross the 100-run mark. Pant departed immediately after his half-century but Iyer helped Delhi post a respectable total on board. Trent Boult was the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai with three wickets.
Delhi Capitals post 156/7 at the end of 20 overs after electing to bat first. Shreyas Iyer remains not-out on 64 from 49 deliveries while Rishabh Pant scored a fine half-century. It was a great final over from Nathan Coulter-Nile who conceded only eight runs to restrict Delhi Capitals.
