DELHI CAPITALS WIN BY 37 RUNS Rahul Tewatia comes on to bowl the last over and has Mitchell McClenaghan stumped off the first ball of the over. Last man Jasprit Bumrah, who injured himself while fielding the ball in the first innings, didn’t walk out to bat. Delhi Capitals ended have started their IPL 2019 campaign with a win, while Mumbai Indians losing streak in IPL openers extend to seven consecutive matches.
Kagiso Rabada strikes again! Yuvraj Singh eventually runs out of luck as his flick finds Rahul Tewatia at deep mid wicket. Fourth catch for Tewatia today.
It has been a scratchy innings, especially against the pacers, but he has still managed to stroke a half-century off only 33 balls.
Kagiso Rabada returns for his second spell and dismisses Ben Cutting rightaway. The big-hitting all-rounder is out caught behind. Is this the realistic end to Mumbai Indians’ chase?
Krunal Pandya’s useful cameo comes to an end as he picks Rahul Tewatia at deep mid wicket. Sixth wicket down.
Krunal Pandya has started belting the Delhi Capitals pacers to all parts to help keep Mumbai Indians in a chase where the required rate has creeped up significantly.
Hardik Pandya follows Kieron Pollard back to the pavilion quickly, giving a soft return catch to Axar Patel. Mumbai Indians have slid to 95 for 5.
WICKET Keemo Paul has gotten rid of the dangerous Kieron Pollard. Foxed by a slower delivery, he gets the top edge to Rahul Tewatia at sweeper cover.
Yuvraj Singh has joined the party now. He has gone back in time and crunched some delightful boundaries. This partnership – 50 in 30 balls – is reviving Mumbai’s chase.
While Yuvraj Singh is undergoing some early struggle, Kieron Pollard has just smoked a hard four and a massive six off Rahul Tewatia.
Ishant Sharma strikes again! The dangerous Quinton de Kock is out caught pulling at deep square leg. Mumbai Indians in all sorts of trouble here.
Suryakumar Yadav is run out! A superb direct hit by Shreyas Iyer from mid off catches the Mumbai batsman short of his crease. Quinton de Kock has run out of two partners already in the powerplay.
WICKET Rohit Sharma’s bid to clear the ropes were undone by Ishant Sharma’s slower ball, which got the outside edge of Rohit Sharma’s bat and went straight to the hands of the long off fielder.
After a relatively slow start, Quinton de Kock went after Trent Boult in the third over and smashed 17 runs to get Mumbai Indians’ chase get going.

Rishabh Pant’s 27-ball 78 has powered Delhi Capitals to 213/6. Insane knock by the Delhi southpaw. A clinical batting performance by the visitors. However, there is a much bigger worry that crops up at end of the innings. Jasprit Bumrah, looking to stop the ball, hurt his left shoulder.
Rishabh Pant has powered his way to a half-century off only 18 balls. His presence at the crease will be the difference between Delhi managing to go past the 200-run mark and not.
Even as Rishabh Pant is on a carnage, wickets are falling from the other end. Keemo Paul and Axar Patel have fallen in quick succession.
Shikhar Dhawan falls! Second wicket for Hardik Pandya. It’s a rather disappointing way to get out. Looking to pull a short delivery, he holed out to Suryakumar Yadav at long off. But he has probably done his job. Time for the lower middle order to take charge.
WICKET Looking to pull a slower delivery over the fence, Colin Ingram pulled one straight to Krunal Pandya at deep mid-wicket. A crucial partnership, that set the base of Delhi Capitals innings, has been broken. Nonetheless, Ingram, who played his first IPL game since 2011, has given a good account of his skills.
Colin Ingram and Shikhar Dhawan have shifted a gear higher and are taking advantage of the easy-paced Wankhede wicket. The pair has added a half-century stand, off only 36 balls to power Mumbai Indians to 82/2 in 10 overs.
STRIKE 2 Shreyas Iyer was looking in sublime touch, having hit a six off Mitchell McClenaghan after stroking a couple of boundaries. However, his innings has come to an early end, courtesy a fine one-handed diving catch by Kieron Pollard at cover.
No Show from Shaw!Prithiv Shaw, batting at what actually is his home ground, smacked Mitchell McClenaghan for boundary over mid-on, but the New Zealander came back strongly next ball to find the outside edge. Shaw was done in by the angle across the right-hander from left-arm over the wicket. The opening batsman failed to move his feet to make life difficult for himself. Prithvi Shaw c de Kock b McClenaghan 7(6) – Mumbai 10/1
Mumbai Indians opened the bowling with debutant Rasikh Salam – a right-arm swing bowler with a neat action. The 17-year-old began with a no-ball but bowled tight lines to round off a good opening over. He was handed the cap by Zaheer Khan before the start of the game.
