In the match against Delhi Capitals, the players of Mumbai Indians did their best. Mumbai had bowled out Delhi for 162 on the strength of penetrating bowling. Chasing Delhi’s 163, Mumbai’s Quinton Decock and Suryakumar Yadav scored half-centuries to give the team an easy victory.
Chasing Delhi’s 163-run target, Mumbai did not start well. Because they lost captain Rohit Sharma early. Rohit could only score five runs this time. After Rohit’s dismissal, opener Quinton Decock and Suryakumar Yadav got on well. Decock was batting brilliantly this time and Decock also celebrated his half-century on the strength of strong batting. While the pair are now hoping to score big, Delhi’s R. Ashwin dismissed Decock, who hit 53 off 36 balls with four fours and three sixes.
After Decock’s dismissal, Suryakumar took all the responsibility of the team on his shoulders and started batting. Suryakumar completed his half century with good shots. But he could not play for long after the half-century, when he was caught by Delhi fast bowler Kagiso Rabada and captain Shreyas Iyerkarvi. Suryakumar hit 53 off 32 balls with six fours and a six.
In the match against Mumbai Indians, batsmen did not get to see a big play. But Delhi’s Shikhar Dhawan hit a half-century. Dhawan’s powerful half-century helped Delhi beat Mumbai by 163 runs. Shikhar Dhawan hit an unbeaten 69 off 52 balls with six fours and a six.
In the match against Mumbai, everyone was curious as to which of Prithvi Saw, Ajinkya Rahane and captain Shreyas Iyer would make the big play.
