MI VS DC 2nd Match Result: DC Win By 4 Wickets

MI vs Dc 2nd Match Despite Ishant Kishan’s and Rohit Sharma’s Brilliant Innings, Mumbai Indians Lost By 6 Wickets.

The 2nd match of the Ipl was an afternoon contest. Mumbai Indians locked horns with Delhi Capitals at Brabourne Stadium.

Rishabh Pant led side of Delhi won the toss and decided to have a bowl first.

It has been the trend in t20 cricket moving. Further, every captain wants to bowl first, as chasing looks a comparatively more straightforward job

The Solid Opening Duo Of Mumbai

The expected opening duo of Mumbai, including the skipper Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan, who lately opened for team India as well, giving them a solid opening start with 48

With 54 runs on the board and no wicket lost.

The first scalp for Delhi was brought by Kuldeep Yadav when he got the wicket of national team Skipper Rohit Sharma, caught at mid-wicket…

He got out after scoring a decent 42 of 32 with a couple of sixes and four fours.

Brilliant Innings From Ishant Kishan

The inning of Ishan Kishan made sure that Mumbai kept on progressing at the same pace. Even after losing their captain, he scored a scintillating  81 of 48 balls with 11 fours and two sixes. It helped Mumbai post a daunting score of 176.

His innings were a perfect mix of attack at the top, consolidation in the middle, and booming at the end.

Kuldeep Yadav’s Heroics With The Ball

This match was also extraordinary for the return of Kuldeep Yadav in IPL colours. He got into playing X1 after a long time. This is the good thing that the addition of 2 new teams has done, more local players getting the opportunities.

It was a perfect outing for Kuldeep; he made it into the final 11, but he also stunned everyone with his performance. He bowled with a lot of control and variety. His overall bowling figures were four overs for 18 runs with three wickets. Quite brilliant on that kind of new surface.

Delhi’s Calming Chase

Chasing 177 can be tricky sometimes because it is not a very big score, but it is not very small.

 It is somewhere in between. Delhi had to play with the intent from the beginning, and they had two perfect options for that in the shape of Tim Seifert and Prithvi Shaw.

Both of them love to take on to the bowlers.

Both of them started as flyers.

After the first three overs, they were thirty for no loss, and things were looking pretty comfortable for Delhi.

Then comes the real success party of Bombay MuruganAshwin, who played for Punjab kings before.

He bowled a magnificent 4th over of the match and took two wickets, and brought back Mumbai into the game

Suddenly the score of 30 for no loss becomes 31 for 2.

At the end of the power play, Delhi was closing at 46 for three, losing their Skipper.

This is the point where one would imagine that Mumbai would be in control of the game, having got three wickets in the powerplay.

Prithvi  Shaw cruised along from one end and didn’t lose his temperament, and he scored a decent knock of 38 from 24 balls, and Lalit Yadav also supported him from the other end.

He was unbeaten till the end with 48 not out that made sure Delhi got over the line.

Axar Patel at no 8 came with a stunning rescue knock of 38 of 17 balls at a mighty impressive strike rate of 223.

Both these innings helped Delhi chase the target with ten balls to spare.

Kuldeep Yadav was adjourned as the player of the match for his sensational bowling spell.

An Off Day For Boom Boom Bumrah

Very seldom do you see JaspritBumrah going for plenty of runs He is a bowler whose 24 deliveries are gold dust?

As he is always so economical and takes important breakthroughs for Mumbai.

Today was different, though. In his incomplete four overs spell of 3.2, he conceded 43 runs without taking any wicket, and these stats were very unlike what we see from JaspritBumrah.

But it’s just a beginning for Mumbai, and they won’t be panicking and would expect to get things right on track quickly
