Match Ended   
129/8 (20.0/20)
132/6 (19.1/20)
Delhi Capitals beat Mumbai Indians by 4 wickets
That's it from this game. But don't go too far away as the match between Chennai and Rajasthan will get underway soon at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Switch tabs and do join us for all the action. Cheers!
For his outstanding bowling, Axar Patel has been given the Man of the Match award. He picked up the wickets of Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav and Saurabh Tiwary, and Mumbai never recovered after those blows.
It was not the easiest of pitches for Mumbai and their batting struggled to come to terms with the slow nature of the surface. Credit should be given to Delhi's outstanding bowling here. They utilized the conditions to their advantage and the variations from their bowlers were too clever to handle. Once again Avesh Khan was impressive with his 3-wicket haul but it was Axar Patel who picked three wickets at the top to break the back of Mumbai's batting.
Sharjah dished out yet another engrossing game. 129 was never going to be enough but Mumbai tried their best. They picked three wickets in the Powerplay but Delhi managed to keep the scoring rate on the track. The plan from Delhi was to keep playing attacking shots and bring down the required rate. Rishabh Pant got out trying to do that and Delhi were in a spot of bother at one stage. However, Shreyas Iyer's presence made sure that they were never behind the 8-ball. He batted as per the demands of the chase and didn't attempt anything rash. Eventually, he got an able partner in Ravichandran Ashwin and together, they stitched in a match-winning stand of 39 runs.
A hard-fought win for Delhi and they have achieved their 9th victory of the season. Delhi have also completed a league double over the defending champions and continue to impress. For Mumbai, they have failed to break the 10-point deadlock and stay 6th on the table. It's going to be tough for them from here on.

SIX! WOW! What a way to win the game for your side. Ashwin does not want to waste time taking singles, he just smacks one out of the park and wins the game. Fuller, tossed up, around middle and off, Ravichandran Ashwin gets low, mows a cracking slog-sweep and thwacks it flat and over deep mid-wicket for a biggie. DELHI WIN BY 4 WICKETS!
Team meeting for Mumbai. Who will bowl the final over? Kieron Pollard or Krunal Pandya? Rohit has decided to go with the spinner.

Trent Boult To Shreyas Iyer
OVERTHROWS! From the skipper, Rohit Sharma too. Not what Mumbai needed. A direct hit would have sent Ashwin back but instead, it has cost Mumbai a few runs. Around middle and leg, slower in pace and it has some extra bounce, Iyer is taken by surprise and chips this one towards covers where Rohit collects it on the bounce. He has a shy at the non-striker's end but misses. There is no one backing up and the batters are able to pick up a couple.

Jasprit Bumrah To Shimron Hetmyer OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Shimron Hetmyer falls and Mumbai are back in this game! Bumrah strikes immediately after the break. Bumrah dishes out a slower ball on middle and leg, Hetmyer looks to flick it but gets a leading edge and it lobs towards cover where Rohit Sharma takes the simplest of catches. 37 needed in 41 balls now.
Ravichandran Ashwin is the new man in.
Strategic Time-Out! This game is turning out to be an exciting one! Delhi need 37 more runs and they have 7 overs left. The problem is the wickets column. They have lost 5 but they still have Shreyas Iyer and Shimron Hetmyer in the middle. Delhi would now look to bat sensibly and get to the total. Mumbai, on the other hand, not only need to take wickets but also need to stem the run-flow. Can Mumbai defend the score from here?

The head bowling coach of Mumbai, Zaheer Khan has a quick word from the dugout. The former Indian speedster says that the wicket column was important for them. Feels that you need wickets to stay in the game. He is relieved to get Pant's wicket before the Time-Out. Mentions that Shreyas Iyer is the key for them and if they get his wicket, there will be more pressure on the lower order of Delhi. Regarding any plans for Shreyas, Zaheer says that they just need to make use of the conditions and work with the pitch and figure out the right areas. Tells that the ball is not coming onto the bat and they will be trying to bowl the wicket-to-wicket line. On Mumbai's poor performance, Zaheer replies that the conditions have also played a role and their middle order didn't get going and that put them under pressure. Shares that this team is used to handling pressure. Wants his boys to keep the energy up and keep the belief. Shares that in the dressing room they have talked about keeping things simple. Smiles and says that the equation is simple for them, win every game and everyone knows where they are on the table. Regarding the importance of the match-ups, Zaheer says that it's very important and they spend enough time to figure out their plans. Praises the whole group which is very supportive and tells that the players work on their own as well. Feels that an off spinner against Shreyas is a good match-up.
An appeal for run out taken upstairs. It seems that Hetmyer is in and he is, as confirmed by the replays.

Trent Boult To Shimron Hetmyer
NOT OUT! Shimron Hetmyer gets off the mark with a couple! A fullish ball, on the pads, Hetmyer clips this one off his pads to the right of fine leg. They take one run and want another. The fielder throws the ball to Quinton de Kock who collects and whips the bails off. The TV umpire has a look and the replays show that Hetmyer was well in. Two, in the end.
Shimron Hetmyer comes out now.
Axar Patel has been given out LBW! He takes the review but it looks out. There is nothing on UltraEdge and the Ball Tracker shows that it is the umpire's call on hitting the stumps.

Trent Boult To Axar Patel OUT!
OUT! LBW! The bowling change does the trick and Boult strikes. The review does not save Axar too. Short of a length this time, around off and middle, Patel looks to work this to the leg side but he misses and gets thudded on his thigh pad. An appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Patel looks at his partner and then goes for the review. UltraEdge shows that there was no bat involved in this. Ball Tracker shows that it's the umpire's call on hitting the stumps. This will remain out and Delhi retain their review. Patel walks back and half the side back into the shed now. 53 needed in 50 balls.

Strategic Time-Out! A wicket in the 9th over has prompted the umpires to take the Time-Out! Mumbai have done really well in the chase so far. They are not making it easy for Delhi at all and have taken 4 wickets already. They would now look to continue with the same intensity and put pressure on the lower middle order of Delhi. For Delhi, Shreyas Iyer is the key. The required run rate is not too high so they can afford to bat sensibly. What will happen? Axar Patel has come ahead of Shimron Hetmyer.

This one is tossed up, around middle and leg, Rishabh Pant moves to the leg side, gets low and slogs this one towards the long on region.

FOUR! This time Krunal Pandya cannot get there. Short in length, around off, Pant waits for the ball to bounce and then hammers it to deep mid-wicket for a boundary. Delayed his shot slightly to get the placement right.

Nathan Coulter-Nile To Steven Smith OUT!
OUT! BOWLED 'EM! NCN does the trick with a slower one. So many bowlers have tried to do this to Steven Smith in international cricket but most have failed. His countryman has not failed though. Nathan Coulter-Nile lands it on a length around middle at 125 clicks, Smith shuffles across the stumps in his trademark style but plays all over it. Makes no connection and the ball goes on to connect with the stumps. Three down inside the Powerplay and it's game on now. 100 needed more!
Nathan Coulter-Nile is into the attack.

Jasprit Bumrah To Steven Smith
On middle, this one is worked in front of square leg for a single. Smith holds great value in this chase for Delhi. He is an accumulator and with the required rate not too much, he can frustrate Mumbai by rotating the strike.

Jasprit Bumrah To Steven Smith
SIX! That has gone all the way. Towards the shorter part of the ground and Smith has scaled the distance. Shortish and around off, Smith stays back, waits for it and just guides it via a pull shot. It flies and clears deep square leg. Didn't try to hit it hard and that's the key.

Krunal Pandya To Rishabh Pant
Walks down the track to a full ball and works it to mid-wicket.
Rishabh Pant is the next man in.
Rohit Sharma has taken a review for LBW! Krunal Pandya looks confident that he has got his man. He convinces his skipper to take the review. The Ball Tracker shows all reds and Shaw has to go.

Krunal Pandya To Prithvi Shaw OUT!
OUT! Three reds on the Ball Tracker and Delhi have now lost both their openers. Krunal Pandya does the magic now. Nothing special with the delivery though. It's served flat and a touch short on middle, skidding on with the angle after landing. Prithvi Shaw hangs on the back foot as he tries to heave it across the line. He misses and is hit on the pads. The appeal is made but the finger stays down. Rohit Sharma gets convinced by his bowler and takes the DRS. There is nothing on the UltraEdge but the Ball Tracker shows that everything is in line and it's hitting the leg stump. Shaw departs and Mumbai have made a roaring start!

Jayant Yadav To Shikhar Dhawan OUT!
OUT! Dhawan is run out! Big wicket for Mumbai and Kieron Pollard has done the magic with his direct hit. A touch flatter and shorter around off, Dhawan walks down the track and bunts it down towards mid on. He decides to take on Pollard manning that region and scampers across to the other end. The West Indian attacks the ball and knocks the stumps down in a flash to catch Dhawan short. It's referred upstairs and the replays confirm the same. 116 needed off 108 balls.
An appeal for a run out has been taken upstairs. The replays show that Dhawan is just short of his crease. Excellent piece of fielding from Kieron Pollard.
