Highlights

23:56(IST)

STAT ATTACK: This is the first win for Delhi capitals in their opening match since 2012

23:51(IST)

WICKET! That's the end of McClenaghan here as Pant also gets a stumping and Tewatia gets a wicket, and its also the end of the game. Bumrah will not bat here. Convincing win this for the Delhi Capitals as they register a 38-run victory here. Can this be a sign of things to come for the Capitals this season? Mumbai are dismissed for 176 here and star of the show is certainly Rishabh Pant

23:48(IST)
23:46(IST)

WICKET! Rabada gets yet another wicket, Yuvraj Singh this time has to walk back as he looks to deposit one over mid-wicket but holes out to guess who!, Yep, its Tewatia again. Been a great day for him in the field so far. Mumbai are now 170/8 as Yuvraj departs for 53

23:37(IST)

WICKET! Rabada gets the wicket, too quick for Cutting there. The ball takes a slight nick and Pant takes a sharp catch behind the stumps. Cutting opted for a review but the snicko showed a slight deflection there. Mumbai are 154/7

23:30(IST)

Excellent over this for Mumbai as Yuvraj Singh clears the boundary here, two maximums and they pick 16 runs from the over. More of the same needed for the next 4 overs. Mumbai are 150.6 after 16 overs

23:26(IST)

WICKET! Delhi will heave a sigh of relief here, this was much needed for them and its Trent Boult who delivers as Krunal finally holes out to Tewatia. Been a fine innings from him as he departs for 32 from just 15 balls to give Mumbai some sort of hope

23:20(IST)

Ishant Sharma goes for a few runs in his last over here, 15 runs as Krunal gets stuck at him. Mumbai actually ahead of Delhi at this stage of the match but this is where the Rishabh Pant factor came into play! Mumbai need 91 from final 6 overs here

23:15(IST)

Keemo Paul's slower deliveries are proving really difficult to pick here for Mumbai Indians batters. He might well be a find for Delhi, another good over as he concedes just 7 runs and Mumbai are now 108/5 after 13 overs

23:11(IST)

Excellent over this from Axar Patel as he concedes just six runs in the over and also picks a wicket. The required run rate is already up to 14 here for Mumbai Indians, they need a miracle from Yuvraj here

23:08(IST)

WICKET! Hardik Pandya doesn't last long either, Axar Patel gets the wicket as Hardik hits one straight back to the left-arm spinner who completes an easy caught and bowled. Mumbai in trouble now, they are 95/5

23:06(IST)

WICKET! Keemo Paul has removed his West Indian counterpart and this is a big wicket for Delhi Capitals. Its the slower ball and Pollard's one hand goes off the bat. Ball goes high in the air and Tewatia takes another catch in the deep. Pollard departs for 21 and Mumbai are now 95/4 after 11 overs

23:01(IST)

Axar Patel gets a welcome here, concedes 20 runs from his first over. All starts with a misfield from Dhawan but after that a couple of brilliant shots from Yuvraj and Mumbai are right back in the chase here. They are 89/3 after 10 overs here

22:55(IST)

Keemo Paul has come into the attack here, he starts by conceding 8 runs from his first over as Yuvraj Singh finally gets one from the middle of the bat. The required run rate is already above 13 though for Mumbai, they are 69/3 after 9 overs

22:49(IST)

SIX! That's huge from Pollard, good way to end the over as far as Mumbai are concerned as the big man launches one over the sight screen and Mumbai pick 12 runs from that over. They move to 61/3 after 8 overs here

22:46(IST)

Pollard has come out to join Yuvraj Singh in the middle, both these players you feel are a bit past their prime. They have a major job in their hands if they are to help their team stay in this one

22:39(IST)

WICKET! Ishant Sharma strikes once again for Delhi Capitals, after conceding a couple of boundaries to de Kock, he gets the big wicket. South African wicket-keeper going for the pull shot but holes out to Trent Boult who times his jump perfectly. Mumbai are now 45/3 after 5.5 overs as de Kock departs for 27

22:34(IST)

WICKET! Sensational from Shreyas Iyer as he collects the ball and throws on the run, manages to get a direct hit and Suryakumar Yadav is already walking. Rightly so, he is way short there. Iyer has a smile on his face and Mumbai are now 37/2

22:32(IST)

Kagiso Rabada comes into the attack for Delhi Capitals and he is bowling in a beautiful rhythm at the moment, reaching almost 150 kph there. He concedes just 4 runs from his first over, Mumbai are 37/1 after 5 overs

22:25(IST)

WICKET! Big one for Delhi Capitals, Rohit Sharma looks to clear the boundary but he gets height on that one but not the distance. Tewatia was initially standing on the rope before almost panicking and diving forward, luckily for him it sticks. Rohit departs for 14 and Mumbai are 33/1

22:23(IST)

Much needed for Mumbai Indians and this might help them get some momentum. de Kock smashes one into the stands over mid-wicket and then also gets a couple of boundaries in the over.

22:17(IST)

Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are the batsmen in for Mumbai Indians, Trent Boult with an excellent over first up as he concedes just 5 runs in the first one. Ishant Sharma then concedes 6, including an outside edge which goes through the vacant slip region for a boundary. Mumbai are 11/0 after 2 overs

21:53(IST)

Tewatia also comes into his own as he sweeps one for a six but its Rishabh Pant who steals the show, he finishes on 78 from just 27 balls with seven boundaries and seven sixes. Brilliant batting from the youngster and Capitals have ended here at 213/6

21:51(IST)
21:46(IST)

Rishabh Pant is absolutely putting in a show here, Salam this time on the receiving end, first one is over square leg and after that straight over long on. Last ball is a full toss and that goes for a boundary through covers. Salam conceded 21 from three overs and then 21 in his final over. Delhi are now 197/6 after 19 overs here

21:46(IST)

Rishabh Pant is absolutely putting in a show here, Salam this time on the receiving end, first one is over square leg and after that straight over long on. Last ball is a full toss and that goes for a boundary through covers. Delhi are now 197/6 after 19 overs here

21:42(IST)

50! Pant has just whipped Bumrah for a six. What a shot from the Delhi lad, after that he uses the pace to find the boundary on the leg side which helps him complete half-century from just 18 balls. Capitals are 176/6 after 18 overs.

21:37(IST)

WICKET! Bumrah gets another wicket here, Patel was trying to loft that one but he holes out to Salam in the deep. Comfortable catch for him, Delhi losing one too many wickets here. They are now 165/6 after 17.2 overs here

21:33(IST)

WICKET! McClenaghan gets the wicket, Keemo Paul looking to clear the stands but he just skies that one. De Kock takes a simple catch behind the wickets, Delhi Capitals need Pant to face as many deliveries as possible here. They are now 157/5

21:28(IST)

This is some sensational hitting from Rishabh Pant, tells Paul to take a single which the West Indian does and after that its 6-4-6! Two maximums through the leg-side and then a beautiful boundary through the off side. Capitals are now 149/4 after 16 overs

Preview: There is no love lost between Mumbai and Delhi when it comes to cricket. The traditional rivalry also spills on to the IPL playing field each season, whether the two sides are playing in Mumbai or in Delhi.

The last encounter at the Feroz Shah Kotla was an especially bitter one for Mumbai Indians, as an 11-run defeat in their last group tie to the Delhi Daredevils cost them a place in the Playoffs after Rohit Sharma’s side had managed to turn their form around in the middle of the season.

The Delhi franchise by then had very little chance of making the Playoffs but were not prepared to give an inch to Mumbai. The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai now open their campaign in the 12th season of the IPL against the rechristened Delhi Capitals with revenge on their mind at the Wankhede stadium in the 8pm clash on Sunday.

The strength of the Capitals this season is their young Indian top-order led by skipper Shreyas Iyer of Mumbai, who will be captain for the entire season for the first time. Shikhar Dhawan’s return to the Delhi fold gives them a powerful opening combination with Prithvi Shaw with skipper Iyer and Rishabh Pant to follow.

Mumbai Indians boast of plenty of proven talent and the core remains the same which won the IPL title in 2017. Skipper Rohit Sharma will return to the opening slot while a fit Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah should give his side the edge in bowling department which also features the likes of all-rounder Krunal Pandya and leg-spinner Mayank Markande — both of whom are India internationals now.

Players to Watch Out For

It’s a battle between Delhi’s batsmen and Mumbai’s bowlers and it’ll be battle between two young guns of Team India in this encounter.

Rishabh Pant: The Delhi wicketkeeper batsman had a phenomenal IPL-11 and carried that form into international cricket last season. Pant scored 684 runs in 14 games at a strike-rate of 173.6 with a century and five fifties. This season is even more critical for the 21-year-old as he aspires to secure a berth in the 2019 World Cup squad, possibly in the No. 4 position as a specialist batsman.

Jasprit Bumrah: He is possibly Indian cricket’s most priceless commodity after skipper Virat Kohli. Bumrah started off the season slowly after taking a hammering at the hands of CSK’s Dwayne Bravo in the opening match last year. In spite of that he finished with 17 wickets from 14 games but apart from his wickets it is his innate ability to hit pin-point yorkers that makes him important to the team. With World Cup around the corner, ‘workload management’ of Bumrah and all-rounder Hardik Pandya will be closely watched but that shouldn’t be the concern in the first match of the season.

Team News/Availability

Mumbai Indians: Even before the season has got underway, Mumbai have lost two overseas paceman in Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga and Adam Milne due to different reasons.
