IPL-2022, Match 1, DC vs MI Highlights: Delhi Capitals defeated Mumbai Indians in a thriller by 4 wickets in their IPL match on Sunday. Lalit Yadav smacked 48* off 38 balls down the order as DC chased down a not-so-easy target of 178 with 10 balls to spare.
Axar Patel also played a cameo scoring 38* in 17-balls, while Prithwi Shaw provided a solid start with his 38 run innings. For MI, Basil Thampi took 3 wickets by giving away 35 runs.
Ishan Kishan, the costliest buy in TATA IPL 2022 auction, showed immense maturity in his batting innings as he made it possible for the Mumbai Indians innings to reach a fighting total of 177/5 with his unbeaten 81 against Delhi Capitals in their IPL match on Sunday.
After playing as a second-fiddle to the MI skipper Rohit Sharma who scored 41 inside the Power Play overs, Kishan came on his own to smash his 3rd fifty in a row for MI, and 10th overall. Delhi put some breaks on the MI batting innings in the middle overs, thanks to Kuldeep Yadav’s fine bowling effort of 4-0-18-3 which included the important wickets of MI skipper Rohit Sharma and the experienced all-rounder, Kieron Pollard, on just 3 runs. But the presence of Kishan was not enough till the end for the MI as the DC middle-order comfortably chased down the target even without their A team due to the absence of some players because of international duties.
Brief Scores: Delhi Capitals: 179/6 (Ishan Kishan 81*, Rohit Sharma 41; Kuldeep Yadav 3/18) defeated Mumbai Indians (Lalit Yadav 48*, Axar Patel 38*; Basil Thampi 3/35) by 4 wickets.
