Delhi Capitals won by 6 wickets

So as it turns out, Delhi have indeed managed to break the jinx and have beaten Mumbai after suffering 5 straight losses against them. They bowled brilliantly and batted smartly and they truly did deserve to win this game. They've seem to have all their bases covered and will take immense confidence moving forward. Mumbai, on the other hand, have some thinking to do. Their middle order failed to fire yet again and this time, that was the primary reason for their downfall. They gave it their all with the ball in hand but the total was simply too low to defend. They've got another game here at Chennai and they'll want to work on their mistakes before that. 
Amit Mishra (Man of the Match, Delhi Capitals): I just tried to bowl in good areas and take wickets. Different bowlers have different styles, my style is to bowl flighted deliveries and get wickets. I've been doing it for the past 14 years so I don't want to change much. (On wanting to take the wickets of Rohit Sharma and Keiron Pollard) Yea it's always there, they are match winners for MI. I was thinking about what variations to bowl. (Towards the back end of the chase) I was worried but I knew that our batsmen were smart enough to take us home. I think all the bowlers did really well tonight and we are very happy. 
Rishab Pant (Captain, Delhi Capitals): Actually when we started, we were under pressure. I think Mishra got us back into the game and the bowlers did really well. We talk about keeping things simple and taking it one game at a time. We were thinking of restricting them to 140-150. I think Lalit Yadav is a great player. (On the two no-balls from Bumrah) Yes everything helped if you won the match. I think from the first match we have learnt that you can win any game if you keep wickets in hand
Shikhar Dhawan (Delhi Capitals): It's totally opposite to Wankhede and I'm happy that we beat MI today. We had to keep the momentum and we knew that it was going to be difficult for the bowling side with the dew coming in. The talk was to keep wickets in the hand while also keeping the momentum going. Everyone's heartbeat was fast towards the end and everyone were watching intently. We deserved to win this game. 
Rohit Sharma (Captain, Mumbai Indians): Yea think we should have batted better, especially after the start we got, we should have batted better in the middle overs. We have not been able to capitalize on the starts we've been getting. But you've got to give credit to the Delhi bowlers, they kept the pressure up on us and kept taking wickets. We knew that the dew was going to come in, but it's not that difficult to grip the ball. We also saw the ball turn in the middle overs. You need to play smart cricket to win and we didn't play well today. (On him being off the field) Yea it's just a small niggle, I should be fine. 
The Capitals have managed to hold their nerve and they've beaten the Mumbai Indians for the first time in six games! Well the game was a lot closer than the scoreboard suggests. Mumbai were up to their usual antics of choking a chasing side in towards the back end of the innings, but Delhi managed to fend them off and emerged triumphant in this encounter. 

Delhi did extremely well firstly to restrict the Mumbai Indians to a modest 137. Next, their batting approach was commendable. Despite losing an early wicket, they did not panic. They kept knocking the ball around and played the field. Steve Smith and Shikhar Dhawan shared a nice partnership and Delhi were cruising home to victory. 

There was, however, a slight shift in momentum when Shikhar Dhawan and Rishab Pant fell in close succession in the 15th and 17th over respectively. But Lalit Yadav and Shimron Hetmyer batted extremely sensibly as they didn't take any undue risks. In the end, they were helped by a couple of no-balls from Jasprit Bumrah in the 19th over and a false start from Pollard in the 20th meant that Delhi got over the line quite comfortably. 

Delhi approached the chase perfectly and they never let Mumbai get on top and sniff an opening. We have seen that chasing has been difficult at the MA Chidambaram stadium but it seemed like Delhi had learnt from the mistakes of the other sides. They'll be pretty pleased with this victory. Mumbai beat them 4 times last year, including in the final, and this will be a sweet revenge. 
19.2 Kieron Pollard to Shimron Hetmyer, NO BALL TO END THE GAME! OH DEAR! Shoulder height full toss and Hetmyer, unsurprisingly, only splices that one towards mid off. The umpires though signal a No Ball for height and that is a pretty anti climactic end to a fascinating contest! 
19.1 Kieron Pollard to Shimron Hetmyer, FOUR! SHOT! SLower delivery that is dug well outside off stump. Hetmyer rocks onto the back foot and scythes that one past backward point for four
Keiron Pollard, right-arm medium, will bowl the final over
Those no-balls really cost Mumbai. Bumrah's ended up conceding 10 off the over without even conceding a boundary. Just 5 runs needed now off the final over and this should be Delhi's game. You never know though! 
Over: 19 | Summary: 1nb 1 1 2nb 1 1 2 1 Bowler: Jasprit Bumrah Score: 133/4
18.6 Jasprit Bumrah to Shimron Hetmyer, slower delivery on a full length on middle and leg stump. Hetmyer gets onto the front foot and tucks the ball off his toes towards fine leg for one
18.5 Jasprit Bumrah to Shimron Hetmyer, knee height full toss on middle and leg stump. Hetmyer gets onto the front foot and places the ball into the massive real estate on the leg side for a brace
18.4 Jasprit Bumrah to Lalit Yadav, low full toss just outside off stump. Lalit gets across his stumps and shovels that one towards the sweeper at deep square leg for one run
The equation is down to a run-a-ball now
18.3 Jasprit Bumrah to Shimron Hetmyer, dug into the track outside off stump. Hetmyer backs away and slices that one down the ground towards long off for just another single. Again, Free Hit goes begging!
18.3 Jasprit Bumrah to Lalit Yadav, full delivery outside off stump. Lalit sits deep in his crease and drills the ball down the ground towards the sweeper at long off for one more run. And, another No Ball! What is happening here!
18.2 Jasprit Bumrah to Shimron Hetmyer, slower yorker on middle and leg stump. Hetmyer gets onto the front foot and stabs it into the off side towards the fielder at extra cover for one
It was the perfect delivery to start the over but unfortunately, he overstepped! Effectively, he's conceded 3 off one ball
