Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer won the toss and decided to bat first.
Despite having a disastrous start following a lethal spell by pacer Trent Boult, Delhi Capitals regained momentum with Iyer and Rishabh Pant cementing a much-needed partnership after they looked all over the place at 22/3 under 4 overs.
Set 157 to win, MI got the required runs with 8 balls to spare thanks to a half-century from skipper Rohit Sharma as well as decent knocks from Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan.
