IPL 2021 Match 13 (Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians)

Delhi Capitals finishes the drought of winning against Mumbai Indians. In the last season, they lost all 4 matches including the final. This time, Rishabh Pant’s team took revenge in their first meet of the tournament. Last year’s runners-up team won by 6 wickets against Rohit Sharma’s team in Chennai on Tuesday.

Mumbai made a good start after winning the toss and electing to bat. They managed to score 55 runs in the 6 overs of the power play losing only 1 wicket. But then the scene changed. Batsmen started to lose their wickets regularly in the aggressive bowling of Delhi bowlers. The pace of the run also slowed down by this. Spinner Amit Mishra hit the biggest blow in the Mumbai camp. Mumbai lost 9 wickets and scored 137 runs in the allotted 20 overs. Captain Rohit Sharma (44) scored the highest runs for the team.

The hero of the previous match, Shikhar Dhawan took the responsibility to chase down the easy target. After Prithvi Shaw’s (7) departure to the dressing room, while the team total was 11 runs, Dhawan put on a 53-run stand with Steven Smith. After playing an effective inning of 33 runs off 29 balls, the Australian batsman returned to the dressing room. However, the foundation of Delhi’s victory was laid by Dhawan’s bat. The pitch got slow in the second innings, so he batted cautiously. Taking the team score to 100, he returned to the pavilion 45 runs. In the end, Shimron Hetmyer and Lalit Yadav’s defensive batting innings took them to victory with five balls left.
