All-round Mumbai Indians ease their way past Delhi Capitals to the top of the table
Mumbai's bowlers set the stage for the batsmen to clinch the win with an impressive performance
That is all from us tonight, but these matches just keep coming at you. See you tomorrow
Quinton de Kock, the Man of the Match: "Enjoyed the win. Just keeping it simple worked for me. I have been batting well in the nets. I wasn't too stressed. Lack of runs is disappointing, but I wasn't too stressed because I have been hitting it well in the nets."
Rohit Sharma: "Means a lot. The kind of cricket we are playing gives us confident going forward. Really pleased how we have played in the first half of the tournament. Perfect day for us. We did everything right today. We bowled really well, then clinical with the bat. Not so much in the end but we will take it. We have always spoken of the importance of one set batter till the end because he knows the conditions. That is one thing we need to tighten. Again I don't want to go too much into this. Chasing has not been that good this tournament, but the way we did it, it gives us confidence that we can chase any target."
Shreyas Iyer: "We were 10-15 short. 175 would have looked completely different. We really missed out when Stoinis got run out. That is something we need to work on. We need to work on our fielding as well. Overall they outplayed us. We need to work on our mindset next game. The ball didn't stop as it did in the first innings. I feel it is important for us to not take anything lightly. There are certain elements we need to work on. We have no idea when Rishabh is back. I spoke to the doctor, and he said he will be resting for a week."
That interview shows you how futile quick running between the wickets can be. Stoinis ran himself out looking for a second off a fumble. And he didn't even make sure where that wobble had landed. That cost DC the 10-15 runs that would have made them competitive. Stoinis can make much bigger impact by hitting two sixes than risking his wicket taking a sharp second
And bad news for DC. Pant is out for a week at least. I would make Hetmyer keep, but ho will DC leadership react to this loss?
Love over-rates in this game. Match over in a little over three-and-a-half hours. Now if we could get rid of 10 minutes of those timeouts, we could have a proper 200-minute game
Comfortable win for Mumbai, who make a statement with this win. They won with just two balls to spare, but tells you not even half the story. This was mostly a stroll for Mumbai. And all credit has to go to the Mumbai bowlers, who were perfect with their plans and the execution. They conceded just the one six even though they took only four wickets. DC will be a better side when Pant, and thus Hetmyer, come back, but tonight Mumbai were too good for them. They will meet again
Now we get into the KXIP/Bangladesh territory. But we have got to remember it had way more to do with luck on those nights than the skills of the bowlers, Stoinis and Hardik Pandya
Anyway the field is up except deep backward square. It was deep point the other night, and Mayank Agarwal had found it
DC go back to their golden arm again. He has already delivered a ridiculous tie this year. Can he do it again? I foresee slower bouncers to Pandya. Long chat between Stoinis and Rabada, which features a big laugh. Third man and fine leg are up. No, mid-off comes up and sends third man back
Does Pollard look for a single or a boundary?
Prasanna: "Why is Prithvi Shaw on boundary? Someone bit taller would have easily cought that... Plus, he is not a good sprinter... What are other options for DC?"
Ten to get off last two. Rabada is done. Nortje'as last coming up. They will take it even if they get three off this without losing a wicket
Krunal Pandya makes it two KPs at the wicket
Rabada needs to produce a wicket right here right now if we are to have a contest
