Scorecard
Mumbai Indians have beaten Delhi Capitals by nine wickets.

They chased down the target of 111 runs in 14.2 overs

After restricting the Delhi Capitals to a paltry total of 110 runs, Mumbai continued the momentum going into the chase. After Ishan Kishan and Quinton de Kock played cautiously in the initial three overs of the match (just 10 runs), Kishan turned the screws on the DC bowlers to launch an onslaught.

Kishan took on the heavyweight Kagiso Rabada scoring 11 runs off his second over and continued to attack all the DC bowlers as QDK labored alongside him. QDK had to depart on 26 after he played the ball onto his stumps and was unable to prevent it from hitting the stumps.

Kishan had survived an LBW wicket earlier off Praveen Dubey and had it overturned with the DRS check. He made the most of his life as he raced off to his half-century to steer MI close to the target. Along with Suryakumar Yadav, Kishan led MI past the target with ease and finished the match off in his flamboyant style with a smashing sixer! Ishan Kishan was rightfully awarded the Man of the Match award for his knock of 72 runs in 47 balls peppered with eight boundaries and three sixers!

With this win, Mumbai Indians are now assured of a top-two spot in the IPL 2020 standings and will be going comfortably into the final day encounter against SRH!

This loss means that Delhi Capitals have now lost their fourth match in a row and the quick chase by MI also meant that their NRR has taken a hit dropping below that of the Kings XI Punjab, who are positioned fourth with 12 points compared to DC's 14 points. DC will next take on fellow playoff contenders Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, which could potentially be a top-two spot deciding encounter!

One-sided affair to start the weekend off but we are in for a treat ahead as the IPL 2020 action continues with all the coverage right here at Sportskeeda. This is Gaurav Kadam, and my colleague, Maanas Upadhyay signing off for now as RCB take on SRH soon!  Stay safe and enjoy the weekend full of cricket ahead!

Anrich Nortje continues for the Capitals!
