He tries to reach out and looks to cut but misss. The ball goes behind and de Kock takes it. There is an appeal from the keeper but not out says the umpire. De Kock seems there is a bat as the skipper enquires with him and the bowler. He takes it upstairs eventually but to no avails as the Ultra Edge spots nothing as the ball goes past the bat. Review last for Mumbai.
Kieron Pollard was not sure about this but he has been persuaded and now he wants to go upstairs as he makes the 'T' symbol. He thinks that there could have been a nick on this occasion. Ultra Edge rolls in and there is no spike as the ball passes the bat.

2.6 overs (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT! Shaw's poor form continues. Not a good return for him once again. Boult gets the second wicket. A shortish ball on middle, Shaw makes room and looks to pull but is really early in the shot. The ball takes the toe end and balloons high in the air towards short fine leg. Quinton de Kock calls for it and gobbles it easily. It went really high but de Kock kept his eyes on the ball all the time and in the end made it look really easy.
2.5 overs (0 Run) A sharp bouncer! Typical fast bowler's response. It is well-directed too, around off. Shaw sways away.

A number of angles checked and the third umpire seems happy. The signal from him is out. Dhawan has to go.

0.1 over (1 Run) Shaw is up and running! A fullish ball around middle to begin from Boult. Shaw flicks it through square leg and opens his account.
Right then! We are done with all the pre-match formalities as the action is about to begin! The umpire walk out into the middle. The players of Mumbai are in a huddle and Kieron Pollard is imparting some final words of wisdom before the players take their respective positions out on the field. The openers of Delhi, Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw stride out into the middle. Trent Boult will start proceedings with the ball for Mumbai. Off we go...
Delhi (Playing XI) - Prithvi Shaw (IN FOR AJINKYA RAHANE), Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (WK), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Harshal Patel (IN FOR TUSHAR DESHPANDE), Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Dubey (IN FOR AXAR PATEL), Anrich Nortje.
Mumbai (Playing XI) - Quinton de Kock (WK), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard (C), Nathan Coulter-Nile (IN FOR JAMES PATTINSON), Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav (IN FOR HARDIK PANDYA), Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.
Delhi skipper, Shreyas Iyer, says that he is wanted to bat first anyway. Tells that in their previous games, they have done well batting first but feels that it really doesn't matter much if you play good cricket. Says that the mindset has been really positive. Tells that they have got three changes in the team. Praveen Dubey makes his debut while Prithivi Shaw and Harshal Patel return to the team. Adds that they have done good preparations for this game and is hoping to turn things around in this game. On being asked about the inclusion of Pravin Dubey, Shreyas says that the leggies have performed really well this season and he hopes that this works out for the team. Adds that even though they have lost three games on the trot, as a team, they are united and confident.
The skipper of Mumbai, Kieron Pollard, says that he is not sure what the wicket will do and they wanted to see what the pitch can do. States that there are two changes as Jayant Tiwari and Nathan Coulter-Nile come in place of Hardik Pandya and James Pattinson. Adds that the franchise is fantastic and the owners have done a good job and they want to continue this. Feels that they have performed well and everyone has chipped in and he hopes that this can continue. Hopes they can finally win a game in Dubai.
TOSS - Kieron Pollard and Shreyas Iyer stride out for the toss. Up goes the coin and it lands in the favor of Pollard. Mumbai will BOWL FIRST.
PITCH REPORT - Danny Morrison and Deep Das Gupta are out in the middle for the pitch report. Morrison says that it is 33 degrees. Adds that they have not played in a while in this strip as the last game played on this strip was on 8th October. Gupta says that the pitch is firm and hard and it looks good for batting. Adds that the average first innings score batting for a day game is 160. It could also aid the spinners as the track might slow down later on in the innings.
It will be interesting to see if both sides make changes to their XI. Mumbai are through and they might want to rest a couple of their players while Delhi might bring in their dashing opener, Prithvi Shaw in this game. How is the pitch going to play for this day game in Dubai? Mumbai won chasing against Delhi when the teams met last time. Will that remain the same? We will find out all these answers soon. Stay with us...
Let's talk about Delhi then! A few games back, they were the side to beat but things changed dramatically for Shreyas' men. Three losses in a row. A win here will mean that they will become the 2nd team to make it to the playoffs. The team hasn't fired collectively and will be eager to put those performances behind and produce a massive effort to go past a strong unit like Mumbai.
Mumbai, the defending champions have stormed their way to the playoffs. A win here will confirm a spot in the top 2 for them which is always an advantage. The big question. Will Rohit Sharma play this game? The answer to this is unknown for now. However, the way the side has played and the way Kieron Pollard has led the unit, Rohit's absence hasn't been felt much. The batters are dominating, the bowlers are firing. All is well for them and they'd hope it remains that way going forward into the final stages of the tournament.
It is yet another Super Saturday in the Indian T20 League! Two games, two very important games. Mumbai take on Delhi first and then it will be followed by the Southern Derby as Bangalore meet Hyderabad. Let's talk about the first game in hand.
