Back in their home city, though not their home ground, five-time IPL title holders Mumbai Indians could not give their home fans anything to cheer about. Yet, the spectators that filled to the brim the allowed 25% of the Brabourne Stadium returned home fully satisfied.
In a match that was in Mumbai Indians’s hands for 33.2 overs out of the 40, Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians went down to Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals by four wickets.
Chasing 178 to win, DC were 104 for six in 13.2 overs, needing another 74 to win in 40 deliveries. Though not unachievable, it was not that easy.
However, DC’s big hitters Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel had different plans. They shared 75 for the unbroken seventh wicket in just 30 deliveries to see Delhi Capitals home with 10 deliveries unused.
