Delhi Capitals (156/7)

Marcus Stoinis (0/1): Trent Boult to Marcus Stoinis, OUT! CAUGHT! What a start, Trent Boult! Does not matter, the injury. You are a champion. Length ball around off, it comes back in intially but then shapes away, Stoinis looks to play at it but gets an outside edge. It goes to de Kock who takes it and is elated. Huge celebrations in the field as Mumbai are off to a roaring start in Dubai. That is a really good nut first up.

Shikhar Dhawan (15/13): Jayant Yadav to Shikhar Dhawan, OUT! TIMBER! Delhi are in all sorts here! Dhawan is out of here. Everything Mumbai are doing is turning into gold. They got Jayant Yadav in who has struck in his first over and he has got a huge wicket. That is a poor shot from Dhawan. This is slower through the air, it lands on middle. Dhawan looks to play the slog sweep but misses it completely. The ball pitches and then turns away a little and hits the stumps. Delhi succumbing to the pressure of the final here.

Ajinkya Rahane (2/4): Trent Boult to Ajinkya Rahane, OUT! TAKEN! One more. Once again, it is Trent Boult. Mumbai are on fire. Full and on the pads, Ajinkya Rahane looks to flick but he does not do so well. He ends up clipping it faintly. It goes to the left of the keeper behind the stumps. Quinton moves to that direction and takes it. Mumbai appeal for a caught behind and the umpire is in unison with them, raising his finger immediately. Jinks does not want to review that, he knows he nicked that.

Rishabh Pant (56/38): Nathan Coulter-Nile to Rishabh Pant, OUT! GONE! Pant has played into the hands of Mumbai! Big, big wicket. Pant was looking to tee off but falls in the attempt to do so. A good innings from him but his team needed him to continue. This is short and on the body. Pant once again looks to go over the fine leg fence but this time does not time it that well. The fielder too is right back at the fence. Hardik Pandya takes a good catch. Coulter-Nile gets his revenge and a wicket to end the over. 10 from it but a huge wicket. Can Mumbai now gain control of this game?

Shimron Hetmyer (5/5): Trent Boult to Shimron Hetmyer, OUT! CAUGHT! Lovely slower ball from Boult. It may look simple for many of us at home but it was a difficult ball to execute. It was short and outside off, Hetmyer is done in by the lack of pace there. He fails to read it and adjust well. He looked to steer that to third man but ends up hitting it uppishly to Coulter-Nile at short third man. The Aussie squats and takes it with ease.

Axar Patel (9/9): Nathan Coulter-Nile to Axar Patel, OUT! CAUGHT! Nathan Coulter-Nile has a wicket, second of the evening. Anukul Roy, the substitute fielder, takes it. Short and slow outside off, Axar does not read that well, he goes for the pull. Gets it uppishly but straight into the hands of Anukul at deep mid-wicket. He did not have to move an inch.

Kagiso Rabada (0/0): Nathan Coulter-Nile to Shreyas Iyer, OUT! RUN OUT! Mumbai get a wicket on the last ball as well. Kagiso is run out when he was running back to the bowler’s end, for the second. Fullish ball around off, Iyer looks to flick but gets a leading edge. It falls safely in front of the man at long off. It is the last ball and hence they try to go for the second, after taking a single. Surya was the man at long off, releases the throw to Coulter-Nile. The bowler collects and whips the bails off at his end, Rabada is miles short. DELHI FINISH ON 156/7.

Shreyas Iyer* (65/50): Nathan Coulter-Nile to Shreyas Iyer, OUT! RUN OUT! Mumbai get a wicket on the last ball as well. Kagiso is run out when he was running back to the bowler’s end, for the second. Fullish ball around off, Iyer looks to flick but gets a leading edge. It falls safely in front of the man at long off. It is the last ball and hence they try to go for the second, after taking a single. Surya was the man at long off, releases the throw to Coulter-Nile. The bowler collects and whips the bails off at his end, Rabada is miles short. DELHI FINISH ON 156/7.

Mumbai Indians (157/5)

Rohit Sharma (68/51): Anrich Nortje to Rohit Sharma, OUT! TAKEN! That is a brilliant catch. The substitute fielder has plucked a brilliant catch. A slower bouncer, Rohit Sharma looks to pull but he does not seem to have got a control of that. It is uppish and seems to be landing in front of the fielder at deep mid-wicket. But the substitute fielder runs the yards, puts in a dive of a lifetime and takes a fantabulous catch.

Quinton de Kock (20/12): Marcus Stoinis to Quinton de Kock, OUT! TAKEN! Got him, that’s gone. Desperately needed a breakthrough, Delhi. Outside off on a good length, Quinton de Kock slashes hard at it. But he gets it off a thick outside edge. It goes to the left of Pant, who takes a good catch, getting down on one knee. Mumbai need 112 runs in 95 balls.

Suryakumar Yadav (19/20): Ravichandran Ashwin to Rohit Sharma, OUT! RUN OUT! This is brilliant from Suryakumar. Sacrifices his wicket for his skipper. Although overall, it was unnecessary. Tossed up on off, Rohit Sharma pushes it to mid off. He wants a single and comes down, almost to the other end. Yadav watches the ball all the way and says no to his skipper. But seeing that his skipper had almost made it to the bowler’s end, Suryakumar decides to step out of his crease and allow his skipper in. The throw comes to the keeper’s end. The bails are whipped off, SKY is the man out of his crease, he departs.

Kieron Pollard (9/4): Kagiso Rabada to Kieron Pollard, OUT! BOWLED! He has knocked him over, Rabada. Kieron Pollard’s stay at the crease has been brief. Full and outside off, Kieron Pollard looks to play the big shot on the off side but he gets an inside edge. The ball goes onto hit the stumps.

Hardik Pandya (3/5): Anrich Nortje to Hardik Pandya, OUT! TAKEN! Good use of the short ball from Anrich Nortje to Hardik Pandya. Little bit of anti-climax here. HP moves to the off side but is a touch surprised by that. He pulls but manages to get it only as far as Rahane at short mid-wicket. Jinks takes a good, safe catch. But no great worries for Mumbai.

Ishan Kishan* (33/19) and Krunal Pandya* (1/1): Anrich Nortje to Krunal Pandya, Yorker on off, dug out to the off side for a single. MUMBAI WIN BY 5 WICKETS AND WIN THEIR 5TH INDIAN T20 LEAGUE TITLE! BACK-TO-BACK TITLE WINS AS WELL!
