619.119.1: Krunal Pandya to Ravichandran Ashwin, SIX! WOW! What a way to win the game for your side. Ashwin does not want to waste time taking singles, he just smacks one out of the park and wins the game. Fuller, tossed up, around middle and off, Ravichandran Ashwin gets low, mows a cracking slog-sweep and thwacks it flat and over deep mid-wicket for a biggie. DELHI WIN BY 4 WICKETS! 
19 Overs | Runs : 126/6 | Run rate : 6.63

218.418.4: Trent Boult to Shreyas Iyer, OVERTHROWS! From the skipper, Rohit Sharma too. Not what Mumbai needed. A direct hit would have sent Ashwin back but instead, it has cost Mumbai a few runs. Around middle and leg, slower in pace and it has some extra bounce, Iyer is taken by surprise and chips this one towards covers where Rohit collects it on the bounce.

18 Overs | Runs : 119/6 | Run rate : 6.61

Bumrah dishes out a slower ball on middle and leg, Hetmyer looks to flick it but gets a leading edge and it lobs towards cover where Rohit Sharma takes the simplest of catches. 37 needed in 41 balls now.
13 Overs | Runs : 93/6 | Run rate : 7.15
112.612.6: Jayant Yadav to Shimron Hetmyer, Hetmyer plays smartly. They have already got 12 runs off the first 5 balls and there was no reason to attack this. Digs this full ball out towards long off for a single. 13 off the over. 37 more needed in 42 balls.

211.511.5: Trent Boult to Shimron Hetmyer, NOT OUT! Shimron Hetmyer gets off the mark with a couple! A fullish ball, on the pads, Hetmyer clips this one off his pads to the right of fine leg. They take one run and want another. The fielder throws the ball to Quinton de Kock who collects and whips the bails off. The TV umpire has a look and the replays show that Hetmyer was well in. Two, in the end. 
011.411.4: Trent Boult to Axar Patel, OUT! LBW! The bowling change does the trick and Boult strikes. The review does not save Axar too. Short of a length this time, around off and middle, Patel looks to work this to the leg side but he misses and gets thudded on his thigh pad. An appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Patel looks at his partner and then goes for the review. UltraEdge shows that there was no bat involved in this. Ball Tracker shows that it's the umpire's call on hitting the stumps. This will remain out and Delhi retain their review.

6 Overs | Runs : 46/3 | Run rate : 7.67
45.65.6: Jasprit Bumrah to Rishabh Pant, FOUR! Shot! Bumrah overpitches around off at 142.3 kph, Pant shows the full face of the bat and clobbers it down the ground for a powerful boundary. At the end of the Powerplay, Delhi are 46/3, needing 84 off 84 balls.

44.44.4: Nathan Coulter-Nile to Rishabh Pant, FOUR! Edgy! Pace up from Nathan Coulter-Nile. Clocks 137.4 kph and serves it on a length around off, Pant stands back to smash it across the line. But it takes the inner edge, beats the stumps and races away to the fine leg fence. NCN has his hands on his head. 
04.34.3: Nathan Coulter-Nile to Rishabh Pant, NCN switches to 'round the wicket and delivers it on a length around off, Pant taps it down to point and looks for a run. He is sent back by Iyer.

04.14.1: Nathan Coulter-Nile to Steven Smith, OUT! BOWLED 'EM! NCN does the trick with a slower one. So many bowlers have tried to do this to Steven Smith in international cricket but most have failed. His countryman has not failed though. Nathan Coulter-Nile lands it on a length around middle at 125 clicks, Smith shuffles across the stumps in his trademark style but plays all over it. Makes no connection and the ball goes on to connect with the stumps. Three down inside the Powerplay and it's game on now. 100 needed more!
4 Overs | Runs : 30/3 | Run rate : 7.5
13.63.6: Jasprit Bumrah to Steven Smith, On middle, this one is worked in front of square leg for a single. Smith holds great value in this chase for Delhi. He is an accumulator and with the required rate not too much, he can frustrate Mumbai by rotating the strike.
03.53.5: Jasprit Bumrah to Steven Smith, Remains on the back foot and defends a short ball to point.
63.43.4: Jasprit Bumrah to Steven Smith, SIX! That has gone all the way. Towards the shorter part of the ground and Smith has scaled the distance.

02.42.4: Krunal Pandya to Prithvi Shaw, OUT! Three reds on the Ball Tracker and Delhi have now lost both their openers. Krunal Pandya does the magic now. Nothing special with the delivery though. It's served flat and a touch short on middle, skidding on with the angle after landing. Prithvi Shaw hangs on the back foot as he tries to heave it across the line. He misses and is hit on the pads. The appeal is made but the finger stays down. Rohit Sharma gets convinced by his bowler and takes the DRS. There is nothing on the UltraEdge but the Ball Tracker shows that everything is in line and it's hitting the leg stump. Shaw departs and Mumbai have made a roaring start!

01.61.6: Jayant Yadav to Shikhar Dhawan, OUT! Dhawan is run out! Big wicket for Mumbai and Kieron Pollard has done the magic with his direct hit. A touch flatter and shorter around off, Dhawan walks down the track and bunts it down towards mid on. He decides to take on Pollard manning that region and scampers across to the other end. The West Indian attacks the ball and knocks the stumps down in a flash to catch Dhawan short. It's referred upstairs and the replays confirm the same. 116 needed off 108 balls.
01.51.5: Jayant Yadav to Shikhar Dhawan, Quicker again, fuller and on off, Dhawan pushes it to cover-point and looks for a run. He is sent back.

10.20.2: Trent Boult to Prithvi Shaw, Boult fails to control the movement. He lands it around middle and leg and it shapes down the leg side, Shaw flicks it to deep backward square leg and opens his account with a single.
00.10.1: Trent Boult to Prithvi Shaw, Right on the money. Boult speeds in and delivers it on a length around off, Shaw goes on his toes and defends it down on the surface.

Steven Smith, who was present there inside the ring, times his jump to perfection and gobbles this one up. 
619.119.1: Ravichandran Ashwin to Jayant Yadav, SIX! What a way to start the over! Mumbai needed this! Tossed up, fuller, around middle and off, Jayant Yadav gets low and smokes this one high and handsome over the long on fence.

118.618.6: Avesh Khan to Jayant Yadav, Around off, Yadav heaves this to the left of the mid-wicket fielder, who stops it well. One run. That is the end of Khan's spell. 4-0-15-3. Wow.

A pacy delivery this time, around off, on a length at 140 kph, Nathan Coulter-Nile looks to whack this across the line but fails to connect. The ball crashes into the off pole.

Khan runs in and spears a laser-guided yorker, around middle and leg, at 141.3 clicks. Hardik Pandya looks to whip it but he misses. He hears the death rattle behind him. Khan gets his second of the game and starts his last over very well! 
18 Overs | Runs : 109/6 | Run rate : 6.06
017.617.6: Anrich Nortje to Krunal Pandya, A dot to end an amazing spell for Nortje! He ends with figures of 4-1-19-1. Superb. Slower, on a length, outside off, a swing of the blade from the older Pandya, but he fails to connect.

014.614.6: Anrich Nortje to Krunal Pandya, YES, IT IS A WICKET-MAIDEN! What an over from the Protea! Wonderful stuff. Around off, on a length, Krunal looks to push but the ball takes the inside edge and goes to the leg side. 
014.514.5: Anrich Nortje to Krunal Pandya, A slower back-of-a-length delivery, angling away from around off, Krunal lines up to play the pull shot but misses. What an over it has been from Anrich so far. Can it be a wicket-maiden?

014.314.3: Anrich Nortje to Krunal Pandya, Nervy moment for Hardik! Slower in pace this time, around off, Krunal Pandya pushes this one aerially back towards the bowler, who fails to get any hand on this, as the ball goes onto crash into the wickets at the opposite end.

014.114.1: Anrich Nortje to Kieron Pollard, OUT! DRAGGED ON! What a great start to Nortje's second spell as they get the big, big wicket of Pollard! The big West Indian has bailed Mumbai out of trouble on so many occasions but he will not be able to do the same in this clash. Anrich Nortje starts with a slower length delivery, outside off, it does not rise too much as Pollard looks to push this to the off side. The ball takes the inside edge and goes onto clip the leg pole. Half the Mumbai side is back into the shed and Delhi continue to stay on top.

Axar dishes out a full toss on middle, Yadav looks to go over long on but gets it off the toe end of the bat. Kagiso Rabada comes running in from long on and takes a good catch.
