Delhi skittle Mumbai out for 156

Delhi 20 for 1 trail Mumbai 156 (Patil 56*, Tare 39, Narwal 3-37) by 136 runs

Delhi's seamers dominated day one in Cuttack, bowling a troubled Mumbai line-up out for 156. It could have been worse for Mumbai had it not been for Nikhil Patil, who made an unbeaten half-century and added 54 runs to their score in the company of numbers 10 and 11. Delhi, who had seven overs to bat out at the end of the day, made 20 before losing Unmukt Chand with two balls left to see out.

Having sent Mumbai in, Delhi tasted immediate success, Sumit Narwal dismissing Akhil Herwadkar in the fifth over of the morning. Wickets fell regularly after that, even as the opener Aditya Tare batted out 121 balls. Tare was fourth out for 39, the first wicket in a mini-collapse that saw Mumbai lose five wickets for 31 runs.

Patil, who had come in at No. 7, then added 20 with Harmeet Singh for the ninth wicket and 34 with Balwinder Sandhu for the tenth. Between them, Harmeet and Sandhu faced 78 balls and scored 14 runs, as Mumbai's last two wickets extended their innings by 24.4 overs. Patil remained not out on 54 off 116 balls, with a four and two sixes. Narwal was Delhi's most successful bowler with three wickets, while Awana and left-arm spinner Manan Sharma picked up two each.
