Kieron Pollard | MI Skipper
We will field first. Not sure what this pitch will do, it’s better to chase down the target. Two changes for us – Hardik is resting today and Pattinson misses out. They have been replaced by Jayant Yadav and Nathan Coulter-Nile. We have been playing well with everyone chipping in, hopefully, it will continue. We need to go hard till the end, not want to get complacent.
Shreyas Iyer | DC Skipper
We wanted to bat first as well. Previous results tell it’s better to bat first. Batting hasn’t been up to the mark, hopefully, it will do well today. Three changes for us – Praveen Dubey makes his IPL debut. Prithvi Shaw and Harshal Patel are back. We are motivated to do well as a team, want to finish on a good note.
Quinton de Kock(w), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard(c), Jayant Yadav, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.
Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Harshal Patel, Praveen Dubey, Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin, Anrich Nortje.
DC vs MI Highlights
Delhi Capitals(DC) Batting
Prithvi Shaw and Dhawan get in to lead DC. Boult opens the attack against DC. Boult did the much-expected job for MI by dismissing Dhawan for duck. Dhawan after scoring two consecutive TON struggles to continue the form. This is the second successive duck for Dhawan.
Again Boult in his second over dismissed Shaw for 10 runs and stuns DC. Losing a couple of wickets at the early stage loads DC with lots of trouble. DC is in need to build a perfect partnership that could boost the DC run rate.
MI bowlers restrict DC to score only 22 runs along with a couple of wickets at the end of the powerplay.

After opening the tournament with back-to-back impressive victories DC struggles to continue their form in the followed matches. Shreyas Iyer after hitting a massive six return to Pavillion while scoring 25 runs.
The much expected Stoinis too dismissed without making an impact on the scoreboard. Bumrah makes the lightning strike by dismissing Stoinis and Pany in the same over.
MI bowlers scatter the DC dream of scoring massive runs. At the end of the 15th over DC scored 78 runs for 6 wicket loss.
After losing wickets in a frequent interval of time DC scored 110 runs for 9 wicket loss at the end of the 20 overs.
Mumbai Indians(MI) Batting
Ishan Kishan and de Kock get in to lead MI to chase down a target of 110 runs. Ashwin opens the attack on the behalf of DC. Chasing down a target of 110 might be a simpler task for the MI who have an excellent batting order.
MI started with slow as they score only 38 runs for no wicket loss at the end of the powerplay. With Kishan’s steady innings MI scored 68 runs for no wicket loss at the end of the 10th over.
Finally, Nortje makes a break in the partnership by dismissing de Kock for 26 runs. DC can still make the game to change in their favor only by making quick wickets. But Ishan Kishan seems to be unstoppable and is seem to be in hurry to win the match earlier.
With raining of 6’s and boundaries Kishan guides MI to register their ninth victory of the tournament. Mumbai Indians beat Delhi Capitals by 9 wickets.

Man of the match
Ishan Kishan | MI
It was not as easy as it looked. The ball wasn’t coming on so I had to keep rotating the strike and then take them apart later. It all depends on the practice sessions, and how you train I wanted to keep my shape and hit sixes.
My mom must get the credit for the food she gives me, that makes me so powerful, and sometimes even I’m surprised how my sixes carry such a long way. My coaches told me that playing shots on the off-side is important, and that wasn’t my strength initially, and I knew, even Rahul sir told me that I need to work on my off-side shots so I’ve been working on that this season and thankfully it’s showing in the match situation now.
I enjoy batting everywhere, wherever the management wants me to bat. At this level, you have to be able to adapt.
