Rohit and de Kock gave Mumbai a stormy start
Chasing a target of 157 runs, Mumbai Indians started in a stormy manner. R.R. came for the first over. When Rohit Sharma showed Ashwin with a six, Kagiso Rabada got two fours and a six in the second over. Rohit then targeted Nortje and rooted fours and sixes. Mumbai’s score was 45 runs in just 4 overs.
De cock out, but the pace of runs did not stop
However, Quinton de Kock succumbed to Stoinisch on the very first ball of the 5th over. Pant caught his catch behind the wicket. De Kock scored 20 runs in 12 balls with the help of 3 fours and 1 six. It is a different matter that in the next two balls of the same over, Suryakumar Yadav hit a four-and-six, bringing Mumbai’s score to 50 runs. Mumbai were 61 for 1 after six overs.
Suryakumar sacrificed wicket to save captain
Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Dhansu were leading the innings that Rohit reached the other end in the 11th over with a fast single. However, Suryakumar, who did not appear from the beginning, left his station to save the captain. He returned after scoring 19 runs in 20 balls. When this wicket fell, Rohit realized his mistake. He looked very disappointed.
Rohit’s half-century in 36 balls, it happened for the second time in IPL
In the 12th over, Rohit hit Rabada with two fours and completed the third half century of this season in 36 balls. This is the second time that captains of both the teams have completed half a century in any IPL final. Earlier in 2016, David Warner and Virat Kohli had a Fifty studded look. The final was played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Delhi 156/7 thanks to Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant
With the help of half-centuries from Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant, the Delhi Capitals recovered from an early tremor from Tret Bolt to a respectable score of 156 for 7 wickets. Delhi’s score was 22 for three at a time, but Iyer (65 not out off 50 balls, six fours, two sixes) and Pant (56 off 38 balls, four fours, two sixes) scored 96 for the fourth wicket. Handled the situation by adding runs. Bolt took 3 for 30 and Nathan Culter Nile took 2 for 29. Delhi scored only 20 runs in the last three overs.
The top batsmen of Delhi were out
The pitch was bouncing and the Delhi batsmen could not adjust to it initially. He had lost the wickets of Marcus Stonyhans fgn, Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan in the first four overs. Bolt was injured in the previous match but was fully fit and took the new ball and stole the stakes for Delhi on the first ball, caught by Stoinis at wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock. He then got the new batsman Rahane (two) caught behind the wicket while Jayant Yadav (one for 25), who was picked in the team in place of Rahul Chahar, bowled Dhawan (15) to justify his selection.
Iyer and Pant took over the front
Iyer and Pant took the lead in shaping the innings. Meanwhile, when Iyer was on 14, Ishan Kishan missed his difficult catch on the cover. Pant, who struggled to score runs in the entire IPL, preferred to play early and focus on rotating strikes. In the tenth over, when Krunal Pandya came for bowling, Pant welcomed him with two deafening sixes. Due to this Rohit Sharma had to deliver the ball to Bumrah.
Rohit made frequent changes in bowling but it was difficult to disturb the concentration of these two. Iyer hit Pollard for the first six of his innings. Pant completed his first half-century of the season by hitting a fine leg over the hipter Nile. In the same over, however, he gave his wicket in reward by giving an easy catch. But Iyer persisted. He completed the half-century off 40 balls, but Bolt did not allow Shimron Hetmyer (five) to come in the second spell, which also upset Delhi’s death-overs strategy.
