Under the new captain, Mumbai Indians made a worst start by losing the first three games they played so far. Following the availability of Suryakumar Yadav, the explosive batter was included in the playing11 for the DC clash but returned for a two-ball duck and turned down the fans’ expectations.

Axar Patel broke the well-settled partnership by dismissing Rohit Sharma for 49 runs in the final delivery of the 7th over. In the very next over, Nortje dismissed Suryakumar Yadav for duck and loads pressure over the Mumbai batters.

Ishan Kishan who made some aggressive shots failed to withstand Axar’s spin attack and was dismissed for 42 runs while Mumbai scored 111 runs in 10.2 overs.

Following Kishan’s dismissal, Tilak Varma who was expected to make a stand with Hardik Pandya returned to the pavilion after scoring just 6 runs. At the end of 13 overs, Mumbai Indians scored 123 runs for 4 wickets loss.
