Batting first, Delhi could only manage 110 runs for nine wickets in 20 overs. This goal was easy for Mumbai. Ishaan Kishan (72 not out, 47 balls, fours, 3 sixes) helped Mumbai achieve this target in 14.2 overs. Delhi still have 14 points and have to play their last league match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Delhi should have won against Bangalore or else the playoff race will be difficult for them.
Kishan and Quinton de Kock (26) shared a 68-run partnership for the first wicket to ensure Mumbai’s victory. Quinton de Cock plaid on the ball of Enrique Nortje. But everything was easy for Kishan. He easily faced Delhi’s strong bowling. He was playing easily to Kagiso Rabada, Nortje, Ravichandran Ashwin. Kishan also won Mumbai by hitting six. Suryakumar Yadav returned 12 not out with Kishan.
