Shreyas Iyer | DC Skipper
We are going to bowl first. The wicket is dry and with a bit of dew, it could play an important role. The energy inside the dressing room is pretty high. Same team for us.
Rohit Sharma | MI Skipper
Looks like a good pitch, it could play a bit slow. We know we are going to bat first now, so just post a good total. We know we have a good bowling line-up to defend any total. Just got to start well and then take it from there.
Three changes, Bumrah, Boult, and Hardik are back for Pattinson, Dhawal, and Tiwary. We are confident, but it’s a fresh game and we got to focus on our strengths.
Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Sams, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje.
Rohit Sharma(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.

Suryakumar Yadav and de Kock jointly lead MI to score 63 runs for 1 wicket loss at the end of the powerplay.
Ashwin after a lot of struggle dismissed de Kock for 40 runs who poses a great threat for DC. DC still is in need to dismiss in-form Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Pollard, dangerous Pandya brothers.
DC bowlers as expected took two quick wickets by dismissing Suryakumar Yadav(51 by Nortje) and Pollard for a duck. Ashwin’s dismissal of Pollard shows a bit of confidence among DC.

But it’s Hardik Pandya who gets into bat in the death over. It’s a great threat to DC now. With Ishan and Pandya’s aggressive strike MI score pumps to the 200 marks. With a six of the last delivery, Ishan registered his half-century where Pandya scored 37 runs for just 14 deliveries.

Man of the match
Jasprit Bumrah | MI
I am okay with not getting wickets and winning the tournament, I have been given a role so I just want to execute that role. Opening yorker was really important. I decided I will do that early in the game and when it comes off it’s always nice.
I am always ready when the captain wants me to bowl and don’t focus on the end result. When I have done that it’s always gone downhill. I have a great camaraderie with Boult. We discuss fields, situations, so there’s a lot to learn from him.
Batsmen have been taking all the awards, so it’s good to get it as a bowler (laughs). Ah no, I don’t worry about awards. As long as the team is winning I am happy.
