MI vs DC Highlights, IPL 2021: Bowlers, Iyer-Ashwin stand power Delhi to 4-wicket win against Mumbai in Sharjah
- IPL 2021 Highlights, Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Delhi Capitals (DC) Latest Match updates: A sensational bowling and a match-winning stand between R Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer guided Delhi Capitals to a four-wicket win over Mumbai Indians.
IPL 2021 Highlights, Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Delhi Capitals (DC): MI bowlers started off very, very well as they sent Shikhar Dhawan (8), Prithvi Shaw (6), and Steve Smith (9) back to the pavilion to leave DC at 46/3 after the first 6 overs. Then, Jayant Yadav dismissed Rishabh Pant (26) and Axar was trapped LBW by Boult on 9 as DC reduced to 77/5. Big-hitting Windies batsman Shimron Hetmyer looked dangerous during his cameo before being undone by Jasprit Bumrah's slower ball. He was gone for 15. Eventually, it was a 39- run stand between Shreyas Iyer (33*) and Ashwin (20*) that guided the side to a four-wicket win with 5 balls to spare. Earlier in the day, DC got off to a very strong start as they restricted MI to 57/2 after 9 overs. While Avesh Khan dismissed Rohit Sharma on 7, Axar Patel struck in his first over by getting the wicket of Quinton de Kock (19). He then came back to pick up two more wickets, Suryakumar Yadav (33), and Saurabh Tiwary (15), to rock Mumbai. The pacers then tightened the stranglehold as Nortje got the better of Kieron Pollard (6) and completed a wicket-maiden. MI reached 88/5 after 16 overs. Eventually, three wickets each from Avesh and Axar, along with Nortje's run-stemming spell restricted MI to 129/8 in 20 overs The Delhi Capitals (DC) have decided to field first after Rishabh Pant won the toss in Sharjah. Both teams have made a change each; Prithvi Shaw returns for DC, replacing Lalit Yadav and for MI, Jayant Yadav is included in Rahul Chahar's stead.

Oct 02, 2021 04:04 PM IST

MI vs DC Live Score: Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma at the toss
"I was in two minds about batting and bowling. Teams have lost batting first and chasing, so it doesn't matter, we have to play good cricket and put runs on the board. Our bowling is amazing and has restricted oppositions so we just have to bat well and get a par score. We know where we stand on the table but we have to focus on what we have in hand, and on the particular occasion. We have a good squad and have to perform collectively. Jayant Yadav comes into the team in place of Rahul Chahar."

IPL 2021: Steve Smith of DC speaks to the broadcasters
“(What's important for the team today?) To bounce back from our last defeat against KKR. Coming up against a good Mumbai side and we are starting to get towards the business end of the tournament, so hopefully keep building and ensure that we are playing our best cricket in the finals. We have seen a lot of low-scoring games here, the wicket's pretty tired, it's pretty difficult to hit boundaries. Just being smart, adapting to whatever the conditions we are faced with today and doing that really quickly. It was certainly a different wicket to what we played on last year. Couple of games I played here were pretty high-scoring games - in the 200s. It's very different, it's just about adapting to the surface you play on each and every game and playing to the best of your ability and I think we can go a little bit better than we did the other day. (Role?) I don't know, I am not sure if I am playing yet or where I am batting today. I think Prithvi is back so we'll wait and see. Hopefully we can have a good day.”

IPL 2021 Live Score: Pitch report
"This is almost at the end of the square, so there is one square boundary that's really short, so the batsmen will have an eye on that. The highest total batting first here in this leg is close to ~156, which isn't as high as last year. Mumbai are playing their first game here. Their batting tempo is what Mumbai will be looking for, because there's no pace on this wicket and Mumbai haven't been in the best of batting form. The extra slowness of this pitch will get player getting out of shape to hit the ball, and one square boundary is really large. The bowlers have to make their adjustment on this pitch, in terms of length, but understanding what a good score is on this pitch will be even more of a challenge"
