Jasprit Bumrah snapped three wickets as Mumbai Indians produced a clinical bowling display to restrict Delhi Capitals to 159 for seven in their last IPL match, despite Rovman Powell’s fighting 34-ball 43.
Opting to field, MI bowlers, led by Bumrah (3-25) left DC tottering at 50 for four in 8.4 overs but Powell and skipper Rishabh Pant (39 off 33 balls) shared 75 off 44 balls to rescue the innings and take them to a decent total in their must-win match.
Daniel Sams (1-30) and Riley Mereditch (0-9 in 2 overs) bowled well as did the spin duo of Mayank Markande (1-26) and Hrithik Shooken (0-34).
Ramandeep Singh (2-29 in 2 overs) also managed to scalp two wickets.
At the time of going to press, MI were 33-1 after seven overs.
Returning to the team after recovering from a bout of typhoid, Prithvi Shaw looked in good touch as he pulled Sams across the mid-wicket boundary and then danced down the track to send the bowler over long-off for a maximum.
However, Sams produced the first breakthrough when he had David Warner caught by Bumrah at short third man. Bumrah then turned the heat as he first found the outside edge of Mitchell Marsh with Rohit Sharma taking a low catch and then returned to sent back Shaw with an unplayable bouncer.
