IPL 2019: Today IPL Match Live Updates DC v MI 34th Match at Feroz Shah Kotla Delhi – Mumbai won by 40 runs
Today IPL Match Live Updates DC v MI 34th Match:
- Hardik Pandya | MoM: Even I was telling myself that I don’t think I’ve ever hit the ball better. I have been working hard in the nets and it has been coming off well for me. I like to keep the basics straight, even in the death if you keep your shape and hope for bowlers to miss, you can hit hard. I am using my brain well, reading the wicket well in this season. I have five more games to go and then the play-offs, and I hope to keep going like this through the season.
- MUMBAI 168/5 (20.0)
- DELHI 128/9 (20.0)
- Mumbai won by 40 runs
- 128-9 is what Delhi have folded out for today, giving Mumbai a huge 40 run win. They’ve outplayed with both the bat and ball and this is a defeat that they’re fully worthy of. Completely out of their depth when it comes to reading the home conditions and there’s still huge work to be done for the Capitals, one more so than the team management. Besmirched showing today
- Ninth Wicket : Rabada c Pollard b Hardik Pandya 9(8) [6s-1]
- Eighth Wicket : Axar b Bumrah 26(23) [4s-1 6s-1]
- Seventh Wicket: K Paul run out (Bumrah) 0(0)
- Sixth Wicket : Chris Morris c Hardik Pandya b Malinga 11(9) [6s-1]
- 107-6: Gets the bottom end of Morris’ bat as he fails to anticipate the slower one and another wicket bits the dust for Delhi. Continous leakage of wickets have left them crumbling and this lapse has resulted in Morris going back for 11, caught by Pandya
- DELHI 86/5 (15.0) CRR: 5.73 REQ: 16.6 Delhi Capitals need 83 runs in 30 balls
- 82-5: When your score reads this languishing figure after 15 overs and that too at your home stadium, you know you’re doomed. Woeful and diabolic batting has been the downfall of Delhi today with waning and wayward shots seeing them disappoint the capacity stadium.
- He’s gone through Pant’s pad and bat and it’s safe to say Delhi have ended their bid of the day. Pant showing here why he wasn’t considered for a spot for the Indian world cup team with yet another inexperienced innings seeing him throw his wicket away all too cheaply. He’s dismissed for 7 runs and Delhi have been cleaned apart
- Fifth Wicket : OUT, THAT COULD BE THE GAME! RR Pant b Bumrah 7 (11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 63.63
- 13 Over: 71-4 and as Delhi look to resurrect their innings, it’s all about holding fort for them after a maligned batting effort. False shots, soft dismissals have pummeled them and a win is looking ever unlikely as the overs pass.
- DELHI 69/4 (12.0) CRR: 5.75 REQ: 12.5 Delhi Capitals need 100 runs in 48 balls
- 14 runs, 4 wickers lost and as Rahul cleans up Shreyas for the 3 runs, a win has become extremely realistic for Mumbai. Have left Delhi decimated and obliterated and if this partnership fails to play out atleast the next 5 overs, it’s safe to say Delhi are out of this
- Fourth Wicket : Shreyas Iyer b Rahul Chahar 3(6)
- 10 over Update: Delhi making this out to be tougher than it should have been. No one else to blame for their fiasco but themselves just like the bowling bid and at the 10 over stage, the side go in at 63-3. Over 10 runs needed per over and this might just fall apart for them
- END OF OVER:10 | 3 Runs 1 Wkt | DC: 63/3 (106 runs required from 60 balls, RR: 6.30, RRR: 10.60)
- Third Wicket : C Munro b KH Pandya 3 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33
- Wickets at regular intervals and we were pretty sure this was going to occur for the hosts. This has turned out to be a faltering innings from the middle-order and as they depart like a house of cards, Mumbai have completely finished Delhi’s bid. Munro the latest to fall for just 3 runs, bowled by Pandya
- Second Wicket : PP Shaw c HH Pandya b Chahar 20 (24b 2×4 0x6) SR: 83.33
- That’s the second for Mumbai and Rahul is the one whose taken it. As Shaw tries to go for a big one, he holes out to Pandya. A soft dismissal but honestly not one Delhi will be too much perturbed by. Disappointing innings of 20 off 24 balls.
- END OF OVER:8 | 5 Runs | DC: 57/1 (112 runs required from 12 overs, RR: 7.12, RRR: 9.33)
- DELHI 52/1 (7.0) CRR: 7.14 REQ: 9.15 Delhi Capitals need 117 runs in 78 balls
- First Wicket : Dhawan b Rahul Chahar 35(22) [4s-5 6s-1]
- 49-1 and this innings is exactly duplicating what Delhi to Mumbai. As soon as spin comes on, the set batsman departs in the shape of Dhawan and he’s bowled just as Rohit. Goes for 35 and with Shreyas walking in, this match can turn on it’s head now
- Delhi replicating exactly what was handed out to them by Mumbai. The powerplay overs have flown past us and so has the run rate for Delhi. Getting such a solid foundation on this ruthless wicket bodes extremely well for you and with a jittery middle-order to ensure, the hosts will be delighted with this start. 48-0 after 6 overs
- DELHI 42/0 (5.0) CRR: 8.4 REQ: 8.47 Delhi Capitals need 127 runs in 90 balls
- Just the start Delhi would have envisioned on this surface. Showing why pace on the bat is such a delicious proposition with the boundaries coming at steady will for their side. While Dhawan is going good, Shaw at the other end is having a tepid time in finding the bar
- END OF OVER:3 | 10 Runs | DC: 28/0 (141 runs required from 17 overs, RR: 9.33, RRR: 8.29)
- 18 after the first 2 overs for the home side with Malinga coming on for his first over of the day. Rohit is shuffling is bowlers around, chopping and changing as he doesn’t look to let these openers settle. The opening partnership has hardly failed to deliver for Delhi this year and Mumbai are searching for an early inroad
- What might work against Mumbai is their lack of a proper specialist spinner on this surface. They meanwhile have an ominous pace battery and if Delhi can negotiate those overs, target can be easily navigated. Promises to make for a ravishing narrative
- As Delhi look to make it 4 wins on the trot and continue their dominance over Mumbai, what they need to show is immense determination, grit and resolve and the willingness to build out a true fulcrum of an innings from someone. This already sordid wicket will get even lower and slower and Delhi need to focus here
- Dismissals in PP (IPL 2019):
S Dhawan – four
P Shaw – six
- DELHI 8/0 (1.0) CRR: 8 REQ: 8.47 Delhi Capitals need 161 runs
- Second Inning start – > Prithvi Shaw and Dhawan are at the crease. Prithvi Shaw is on strike. Hardik Pandya will open the attack
- Mumbai have been provided with more than a decent score by their batsmen. On a surface where getting the runs is extremely difficult, Mumbai has taken apart Delhi with comfortable ease. Foolish captaincy not to give Mishra another over and it’s cost Delhi massively
- MUMBAI 168/5 (20.0) CRR: 8.4
- 18 runs off the last and with all the last three overs from pace going for double digits, Mumbai have taken this total to 168-5. Completely unexpected at one stage and Delhi have only themselves to blame for this debacle. Nonchalant bowling by the faster bowlers have condemned them staring at a massive target and this is all their own doing
- Fifth Wicket : Hardik Pandya c Pant b Rabada 32(15) [4s-2 6s-3]
- END OF OVER:19 | 15 Runs | MI: 150/4 | RR: 7.89, 15 runs off the 19th as well and Morris has returned with figures of 0-39 from his 3 overs. Fine margins on a surface that has nothing in it for the batsmen and full tosses and flummoxing line and lengths have completely outdone all the good work done by Delhi initially. Extremely poor bowling
- 1 4 1 4 6 1: 17 runs off the 18th and that was an appalling six ball from Delhi’s perspective. Why would you decide to bowl pace on a wicket and send the ball done at a quicker speed when versatile slower deliveries are more than adeptly doing the trick on this wicket? Baffling choice by the bowler and he’s rightly cleaned up. 135/4
- 17: 118-4: Morris continues to have a torrid time with a horrendous wide outside the offstump delivery allowing the batsman to open his arms.
- Fourth Wicket : Rabada comes on and he gets Suryakumar’s outside edge. Tried to do something too much, only manages to find Pant who was going to his right and his absurd innings of 26 runs in 27 balls comes to an end. Time for the stratergic timeout as well with Mumbai in a conundrum.
- Over 15 Update: Just the 4 runs from Axar’s culminating over and he bowls out for 1-17. With Mumbai sitting on 104-3, something has got to give for them sooner rather than later. Even on this surface, atleast 150 is needed to give the bowlers a fighting chance
- 100 up for Mumbai at the 14th over stage. While the pitch has been a difficult one to traverse, the travails that these two have shown while batting has made for a sore viewing. No incentive or onus being shown to take this score towards a big one.
- 88-3 after 12 overs. Mumbai’s innings in a tatter at the moment with spin rattling their batting sojourn.
- Over 10 Update: 75-3 and with just 18 runs and 3 wickets in the last 4 overs of spin, Delhi have done an amazing job to pull back things. Virtue of slow bowling doing the trick here and the home support is absolutely loving the way their team have showed immense fighting spirit.
- Third Wicket : Comedy in the middle and it’s given delgi huge wicket. Quinton, the man who had 35 to his name started running but Suryakumar completely failed to understand the situation. He failed to read the game and Quinton was right at the other end to find himself a huge distance away.
- MI: 63-2 after 8 overs
- Second Wicket : This is what this wicket wanted and this is why spin is the go to thing on this surface. Second over of the slower stuff sees Cutting walk back on his return to the Indians setup for a meagre 2 runs. Tried to play across the delivery, the shape of the ball did him in and he’s LBW
- MI: 59-1 after 7 overs
- Sixth time Amit Mishra has dismissed Rohit Sharma in the IPL – the most he has dismissed any batsman.
- 150th wicket for Mishra in IPL – only the second bowler to achieve that feat.
- First Wicket : Bowled him! Just as we were eagerly anticipating spin, Mishra comes on for his first over and sends a straighter one to come back into Rohit. It hardly bounced, showing incoherent trajectory and Rohit has to go for 30.
- Powerplay Update: 57-0 at the end of 6 wickets. On such a vicious wicket where the ball is already starting to keep so low with bounce almost non-existent, Delhi’s gameplan of refusing to give the spinner an over has completely caught them in a hole.
- Commendable batting from this opening partnership. On a surface where batting is a difficult ordeal, their shot selection is testament to the fact that good shots yield results on any surface. Have taken the last two overs apart to up the ante seriously.48/0 (5.4 Ovs)
- MI: 16-0 after 3 overs
- 12 without loss at the end of first two overs. This pitch has started showing what a maligned task it’s going to be to bat on here now itself and Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma are ensuring that they see off Delhi’s pacers with caution.
