DC vs MI: MI bag maiden points in an absolute thriller!
Three thrillers in three days!.. The IPL has turned up and is compensating for a week of one-sided games. The DC-MI game has went right down to the wire. Win or Lose, Anrich Nortje has bowled a superb last over nailing yorker after yorker. The final over had intense drama. One catch dropped, and a wide call overturned. The giants, though, run hard on the last ball, and Tim David puts in a desperate dive to get in. David Warner’s throw is just a touch high, which means it takes that extra millisecond to get the ball down… WHAT A FINISH!!!
First win of the season for Mumbai Indians, and this is Delhi Capitals’ fourth successive loss of the season.
MI hit back!!
Cameron Green and Tim David take on Mustafizur Rahman, who had brought DC back into the match. Each of them gets a big hit in each to take 15 off the 19th over, leaving themselves five to get in the last over. Fizz hardly bowled a bad ball. Super Over or MI walking with a win?
A blinder by Porel to end Rohit’s innings!
The set batter Rohit Sharma is gone for 65. This was a superb diving catch by Abhishek Porel. Is this the big moment in the game?? Rohit felt the pressure building and went for a wide ball only to edge it into the gloves of an flying keeper. The game is surely wide open. DC have done well in the last 11 balls. MI need 26 runs off 18 balls. Another last over finish brewing?
Mukesh to Tilak; 4,6,6,0,W,!
Mukesh Kumar gets the much needed wicket for DC, but after conceding 16 runs. Tilak targeted the left arm pacer and took him for 16 runs in first 4 balls. Looking to muscle another one he toe-ended it only to find Manish Pandey’s hand. Then the very next ball he got Sky for golden duck. Was a short ball on leg and SKY flicks it straight to the fielder at fine leg. This has been an exceptional comeback by Mukesh. MI need 34 runs off 24 balls. A little too late or DC can still come back?..
Impact Player (MI): Tim David is the impact player and walks out to bat. He has came in for Riley Meredith.
DC vs MI: 50 runs needed off 30 balls!
DC have just pulled things a tad and the req. rate is 10 RPO now. Both the batters have slown down in the last few overs. But both are set and would be eyeing one big over to take the game in their control. MI are 123/1 after 15 overs. Can DC crawl back or MI has this under control ?…
50 for the MI captain!
Rohit Sharma gets to an IPL fifty after 24 innings. It took 29 balls for him to reach this fifty. He has been sublime form hitting it as effortlessly as Rohit Sharma normally does. Vintage stuff from the Hitman. MI look comfortably placed to chase this! They are 112/2 after 12 overs. 61 runs more needed in 8 overs. Tilak Varma is 20 off 15 at the other end.
Kishan is runout, Is this DC’s chance to crawl back?
Good fielding at point by Mukesh Kumar has resulted in Kishan’s wicket. The non-striker Rohit Sharma called for the single and Kishan never wanted to run. He eventually followed his captain’s call and was way short of his crease as Lalit completed a clean pick-up and ran him out. Rohit hits his pads in anger, he knows he made the wrong call. MI are 73/1 after 8 overs. 2 overs after powerplay have saw only 5 runs and a wicket. They need 100 more runs to win.
DC vs MI Powerplay Update : Flying Start for Mumbai Indians!
Vintage Rohit Sharma was on display as the Indian veteran showcased his skill and timing. Coming down the track and hitting Mukesh Kumar over deep mid-wicket and using Nortje’s pace to loft him for sixes, we have seen it all from the Hitman who is 37 off 17 at the moment. Ishan Kishan is going great guns too at the other end. Spin was introduced to slow down the scoring rate but hasn’t made a significant impact! MI are 68/0 after 6 overs. DC in desperate need for wickets!
Impact Player (DC): Mukesh Kumar comes in for Prithvi Shaw.
DC vs MI Innings Break: DC bowled out!
The innings had its ebbs and flows. It started well but stumbled in the middle. It was revived by Axar Patel but lost 4 wickets in no time after that. MI bowlers did well to come back in the death overs. DC have ended up with 172.
Axar Patel is the man of the moment but, scoring 54 runs off 25 balls. Warner notched up his third fifty off the season but struggled with his strike rate. It was another scratchy innings by the DC openners. For MI, Piyush Chawla did well picking 3 wickets.
Mumbai need 173 runs to open their account at the table. There have been no signs of due according to the on-air commentary. Will MI chase this?…. Can DC defend this ?…. we’ll soon find out!
Fifty and Out for Axar Patel!
Axar Patel has kept the momentum going with his 22-ball fifty. He perishes in doing so but not before making a remarkable contribution. He changed the flow of the game with his ball-striking. A blinder of an innings ended by Behrendorff.
Behrendorff dismissed Warner with a slower ball and then a direct hir from Nehal Wadhera gets Kuldeep Yadav. Abhishek Porel tried to keep the runs flowing but mistimes and has to go back in the hut. 4 wickets have fallen in the 19th over. DC are 166/9 with 1 over left to play.
50 up for Warner!
Captain David Warner has been consistent and has carried his form in this game too. You might criticize him for his strike rate, but you cannot deny the fact that Warner has fought with grit and determination for his team and holding one end up while wickets have fell like bowling pins at the other end. Warner is neither raising his bat nor celebrating this knock. Axar Patel is keeping the runs flowing.
DC vs MI: Last 5 overs coming up!
Axar Patel took on Hrithik Shokeen in 15th over hitting him for two sixes. DC are 123/5 with Warner (48) and Axar Patel (18) at crease.
Chawla gets redemption, goes straight through Lalit Yadav’s defence. The slower, loopy googly from Piyush Chawla. Lured Lalit Yadav into a forward stride and did him in the flight. Lalit Yadav is gone for 2 and Chawla now has 3 wickets to his name. DC are 103/5 after 13 overs.
Catch Dropped, Run Out Opportunity missed too!
It all happened on the third ball of the 12th over. Warner hits an outside-off ball straight to mid-off where Chawla drops the catch. Chawla is slow in gathering the ball allowing them to run a single. Amidst all this, Warner and Lalit Yadav were stuck at one end as the latter was guilty of ball-watching. Warner was fuming.
Powell departs too!
DC started well in the powerplay but have fallen back to similar patterns of losing wickets. Warner is standing tall and one end and wickets are tumbling at the other. Rovman Powell is the latest batter to walk balk after being trappped in front by Piyush Chawla. 3 wickets in last 3 overs for Mumbai Indians. DC are 88/4 after 11 overs with Warner and Lalit Yadav at crease.
DC vs MI : Mid-Innings Update!
The debutant Yash Dhull is dismissed cheaply by Riley Meredith. The slower ball does the trick. Dhull goes for the pick-up pull and gets more height than distance. Got it to the longer side of the ground and Nehal does extremely well to run across to his left from deep square and complete the catch.
Mumbai Indians strike in successive overs and DC are 85/3 after 10 overs. Warner and Powell at the crease.
Pandey departs after a brisk innings!
He tried to take on the leg spin of Piyush Chawla, used his feet again but lofted it straight to long-off. He made 26 runs in 18 balls with the help of five boundaries. DC – 78/2 (9 overs).
DC vs MI Powerplay Done: DC 51/1
Manish Pandey has came out with an positive intent, using his feet against spin. He has accumulated 17 runs in 10 balls. David Warner is at the other end having scored 18 runs off 16 balls.
Shaw’s miserable season continues!
Prithvi Shaw falls early again. He was playing his shots and perished doing it. He hit the first ball for an inside-out shot resulting in four runs. Trying to sweep the fourth ball he handed it straight to Cam Green at backward square leg. Hrithik Shokeen gets him for 15. Rohit Sharma made a bold move by bringing Hrithik Shokeen on in the fourth over. DC are 34/1 after 4 overs.

Toss Update: Mumbai Indians have won the toss and have elected to field.
Lot of grass halfway down in the middle of the pitch and around the 3-4 metre length, a bit of patchy grass and a bit of bare patches which could mean a bit of indifferent bounce which could be a challenge. The important thing for the bowlers is to hit those bare pitches right and consistently. Quick outfield and wind to play a factor tonight, Says Chris Morris in Pitch Report.
Jofra Archer vs David Warner in all T20s
Welcome to the feed for DC vs MI: Live scores and updates. Two teams that are yet to taste a win this season will lock horns tonight in match 16 of IPL 2024.
Mumbai Indians, are yet to win a match this season, since neither their bowling nor their batting has been particularly spectacular. The form of skipper Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav is also a major source of concern, with Rohit admitting that veterans must take up now.
Three games down, Delhi Capitals too are yet to get off the mark. More significantly, they are unable to figure out and fix the extent of the concerns. There is panic, and there is admission of those concerns. Ricky Ponting, the head coach, is uncertain if he’s even putting the best XI on the park.
