20:06 hrs IST: An all-South African opening bowling attack. Chris Morris comes on from the other end. Parthiv Patel cracks a slightly wide delivery to point but Shreyas Iyer puts in the dive and prevents a boundary. Excellent effort.
20:05 hrs IST: Good start for Rabada. Pace over 145 kmph, big inswing and zip off the wicket but slightly awry when it comes to control. Mumbai Indians are 7/0 in the first over.
20:02 hrs IST: Kagiso Rabada will open the bowling on his IPL debut. Great moment for the South African pacer whose pace and skill has been a breath of fresh air in the cricketing world.

19:10 hrs IST: A warm welcome to the match between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils. It is supposed to be the clash of the equals, but on recent record, Mumbai Indians are the team to beat in this edition of the tournament.
While Mumbai Indians are the undisputed chase masters in this edition of the IPL, Delhi Daredevils’ middle order is yet to fire though Sam Billings and Sanju Samson have given them brisk starts.
This is the 19th match between the two teams. In terms of head to head, there is nothing to separate the sides. After 18 matches, both teams are deadlocked at nine wins each but Delhi Daredevils have won just once at Wankhede --- in 2012 --- in seven outings.
