It's a double-header Sunday so although this game is done, head over to the second game of the day, where Royal Challengers Bangalore are takign on Punjab Kings.

7.24pm: What a fightback by Delhi Capitals. And they've done it without David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Anrich Nortje. They've done it while playing with only two overseas players - something that's been done only once before in the IPL. Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel were their last 'batting' pair, and how well both came to the party. Lalit showed the chops that the few who might have seen him in domestic cricket always knew he had. Axar has been an under-rated allrounder in any case, and was great with both bat and ball. Don't forget Kuldeep Yadav's excellent bowling up top. He's been out of favour for a while, but he showed that he's far from done.

Sharat Verma: "Daniel Sams and Jasprit Bumrah's 7.2 overs produced 100 runs for DC! " --- a rare off-day for Bumrah. Delhi did well to capitalise on it. As an opposition, you have to do that because those days don't come around too often.

Viren: "I am a die-hard Delhi fan, switched off the TV after fall of Shaw, just checked Espncricinfo to find one of the most stunning recovery, still rubbing my eyes. "

Tim Seifert: Everything is going good, and it's obviously a great way to start, for me in a new franchise and for the team, an awesome way to start the tournament. It was entertaining, that's just T20 cricket. And cricket in general as well, you show that fighting courage and you never know where the game is going to end. (his catch) Sometimes those just stick! It was nice to get that, obviously a big part for us getting Pollard out. We know what he can do, so good to get him. (Ponting) He's been excellent. The courage he gives you and the cricket we've been talking has been outstanding.

Rohit Sharma: I thought it was a good score. It didn't look like that kind of a pitch where you could get 170-plus at the start. But we played really well in the middle and finished off really well as well. Good score on the board, it's just that we didn't bowl according to the plans. (Not won the opening IPL match since 2012?) Honestly, that's never been the talk. We always come prepared, whether it's the first game or last game, we want to try and win every game. But we made some mistakes on the field which didn't go according to plans. But those things can happen. We just need to keep it tight within the group. Disappointed, but it's not the end.

Over to Saurabh for the presentations.

Ben: "This is not a jailbreak by these two. This is proper knockout punches and prevailed "

Binod Paudel: "Bumrah and Sams combined for 100 runs in 7.2 overs."

7.17pm What a comeback by Capitals! Many - including me - thought it was done long back. The game seemed headed in one direction after Thakur fell, but kudos to Lalit and Axar for helping their side cross the line. A stand of 75 in five overs, and Mumbai's history with opening-day losses continues.

18.2
4
Bumrah to Axar Patel, FOUR runs

Bumrah's bad day continues, and Axar wraps that up! Capitals find new heroes in an opening win this season. On a near yorker length but pitches wide outside leg, and all Axar has to do is clip that off his pads over short fine leg

Over the stumps to Axar too

18.1
1
Bumrah to Lalit Yadav, 1 run

yorker on middle, and angling in. Jams his bat down, and manages a single to fine leg, as the ball takes the inside half of the bat

One hit away now. Bumrah from over the wicket.

Sams to Axar Patel, SIX runs

four more, and this is nearly done! These two are having fun. A dipping full toss - and guess what, another change of pace ball from Sams - on middle and off, and Axar slog sweeps that over deep square leg

17.5
1
Sams to Lalit Yadav, 1 run

on a fullish length on middle and leg. Clipped to long-on

Back over the wicket

17.4

Sams to Lalit Yadav, FOUR runs

driven wide of long-off! This is slipping away from Mumbai now. On a fuller length and just outside off, and he beats extra cover as well as long-off to his left

17.3
6
Sams to Lalit Yadav, SIX runs

six over long-on! Has Lalit come out of syllabus for Mumbai, or is Lalit really well prepared? On a good length on off, and again change of pace. Lalit got his front leg out of the way, and heaved that over the fence confidently. Six more

Sams around the wicket to Lalit

Celine: "This is brilliant batting by DC's lower order :)"

17.2
1
Sams to Axar Patel, 1 run

better length now. That was angling in off a pretty full length on off, as Axar clipped to deep midwicket with the movement into him

17.1
6
Sams to Axar Patel, SIX runs

that is smashed wayyy over deep square leg! The fifty stand is up too. It was a slower ball all right, but that was on a short of a length on off, and Axar had enough time on this slow pitch to ram that away

Sams is back. Over the wicket to Axar.

28 from 18. Who is betting on whom here?

hari: "Bumrah will make a comeback in his last over"

Thampi to Lalit Yadav, 4 leg byes

what a bonus for Capitals! It was a targetted yorker on leg, as the ball pitched just short of Lalit's front pad. He went for the flick, but the ball took his pad on its way behind the wicket. Kishan dived to his left, but didn't get a hand

BK: "Target still looks reachable. match is still on.."

16.6
1w
Thampi to Lalit Yadav, 1 wide

another wide. This is again pretty full and outside leg, and remains out of Lalit's reach to have a flick

Around the wicket to Lalit too now. Mid-off inside the circle.

Can Capitals get a boundary off the final ball of another over? Rohit again has a word with his bowler.

16.5
1
Thampi to Axar Patel, 1 run

slog sweeps that low full toss on middle for a single to deep midwicket. Against Thampi went wide of the crease to bowl this

16.4
4
Thampi to Axar Patel, FOUR runs

he holds the pose after lofting that! Thampi went from wide of the crease, but bowled right in the slot on off. Axar gently lifted his bat to go over the bowler's head. No one had a chance

madmax: "Bumrah's off day!"

16.3
1
Thampi to Lalit Yadav, 1 run

excellent ball. Nails that yorker on middle, as Lalit is cramped for room, having to jam the bat down for a single to long-on

16.3
1w
Thampi to Lalit Yadav, 1 wide

goes for a yorker, but the ball lands just outside leg. Lalit has a heave, but misses. Wide called

Rohit and Thampi in a conversation now...

16.2
Thampi to Lalit Yadav, no run

looks to clip this back of a length ball on middle, but the ball hits his pad instead

Over the wicket to Thampi

16.1
1
Thampi to Axar Patel, 1 run

dropped by David at long-on! That was a sitter. The ball popped out of his hands there. Oh my! It was a dipping full toss on middle and off, as Axar swung it away. And after that, the throw at the bowler's end arrived wide, otherwise there could have been a run-out

Thampi will finish off. Around the wicket.

Anish: "Lalit is not playing a rash shot, but a level-headed clean executed shots."

Bumrah to Axar Patel, 1 run

this is full and straighter on middle and off. Axar flicks to fine leg after almost falling over on his head. Capitals take 15 off Bumrah

15.5
2
Bumrah to Axar Patel, 2 runs

follows the batter, who makes room to go outside leg. Bowls it on a yorker length outside leg, as Axar still manages to clip that to deep midwicket. Two runs gobbled again. Good running

15.4
1
Bumrah to Lalit Yadav, 1 run

finally gets it right. Bumrah bowls pretty full on off, and close to what would have been a yorker. Drilled to long-off

Moiz Khan : "Too early to celebrate Mumbai win. Axar can hit big, so can nagarkoti. RRR isn't a huge concern imo."

15.3
4
Bumrah to Lalit Yadav, FOUR runs

four more, this time to third man! This was on a back of a length, and wide enough outside off for him to crash that between short third man and point. That was played late, and after allowing the ball to come into him

49 off 28... Hmmm...
