Having endured a disappointing IPL campaign last time around, both Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals took on each other in their opening game of IPL 2019 at the Wankhede Stadium.

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first. However, Rohit's decision to bowl first backfired as Delhi Capitals posted a huge score of 213/6 in their allotted 20 overs, courtesy of some brilliant hitting by Rishabh Pant and meaningful contributions from Colin Ingram and Shikhar Dhawan.

Chasing a huge score of 214 on a flat batting pitch, the Mumbai Indians lost wickets at regular intervals to lose the match by 37 runs, despite the best efforts of Yuvraj Singh.

With the match done and dusted, let's see how the players from both sides fared in this one-sided encounter.
