11.47pm That's a wrap of this game. Thanks for your company and comments. Do come back for tomorrow's double-header. Until then, stay safe and cheers.

11.40pm Pant: When we started we were under a bit of pressure, but Mishi bhai got us back into the game. It was a low-scoring match, but a difficult pitch to bat on. We just wanted to keep it simple and we wanted to restrict them to at least 140-150. I think Lalit is a great Indian player and we are looking to groom him [on Lalit's promotion]. Everything [Bumrah's no-balls] helps in the end if you win the match.

Mishra, Player of the Match: I was just trying to get wickets there and bowl slower. My style is to bowl the bowl in the air and get it to dip. I've been doing that for 14 years and I don't want to change much. It's always there, Rohit and Mumbai were match-winners for Mumbai Indians for the last 14 years. So, I always go for the wickets. I was worried, but our batsmen are smart enough. Altogether, we're very happy today.

11.25pm Before today, the Delhi Capitals had lost all of their last five matches against the Mumbai Indians, including four last season. Mumbai made them dig deep once again, but Hetmyer ushers them home in a low-scorer. It was set up by Mishra's delightful legbreaks and wrong'uns on a sluggish Chepauk track. Ponting hugs a pumped-up Mishra. The Capitals will play one more game at Chepauk, against SRH, before heading to Ahmedabad.

Rohit: After the start we got, I thought we could have batted well in the middle overs, which we didn't do. We didn't capitalise on the start in the powerplay, which we failed to do again. Credit to Delhi bowlers - they kept the pressure up and kept taking wickets. We knew dew was going to come in. We saw in the last few games that it's not that difficult to grip the ball. Dew is not really the factor. You need to play smart cricket to win. Just a small niggle, should be okay.

Dhawan: Absolutely different from Wankhede. [This win] brings a lot of confidence to our team. Really happy. We just had to keep the momentum going, we knew at the end it will be difficult for the bowling side with dew. It was important to keep wickets in hand and at the same time have positive intent. Everyone was watching the match intensely in the dug-out and we wanted to win.

RajatMaheshwari: "This win by DC will really give them more confidence as they has not had a great record over MI off late in IPL and they had less time to get accustomed to the conditions and weather over here at Chepauk which were quite contrast to what they faced at Wankhede!"

Royston Crasta: "I vote Amith Mishra for player of the match"

Ansar : "Someone said Bumrah and Mali should be given a salute for bowling at Mumbai's flat decks. True enough, but I would also like to salute Raina and MSD for batting and winning matches in this tough deck at Chepauk. "
