  • Jasprit Bumrah finished with impressive figures of 4-0-17-3.

  • Ishan Kishan smashed his third fifty of IPL 2020.

Mumbai Indians (MI) crushed Delhi Capitals (DC) by 9 wickets in the 51st match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Saturday.


Chasing a paltry target of 111 runs was never going to be difficult and precisely what happened. The opening pair of Ishan Kishan and Quinton de Kock (26) took MI to a decent start. The duo added 38 runs in the powerplay.

Since there was no scoreboard pressure, MI managed to score runs without trying too many things. They kept the run-rate under 7 and posted 68/0 after 10 overs.


However, in an attempt to save wicket, De Kock lost his concentration and was castled by DC pacer Anrich Nortje in the 11th over of MI’s chase.

Kishan, on the other end, continued punishing the DC bowlers and scored his third half-century of the season.

Soon, in the 15th over, MI chased down the target and won the contest by 9 wickets. Kishan remained unbeaten on 72 off 47 deliveries with 8 fours and three sixes.


Bumrah, Boult restricted DC to 110/9
