Live Cricket Score, IPL 2019, Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals

IPL 2019, Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals: A 37-run win for Delhi to get their tournament running.The openers did threaten a little but 33/0 became 45/3 in next to no time. The middle order then tried to rally around Yuvraj Singh but it was too much to be done. Eventually, Yuvraj was the only one who crossed the 50-mark when ideally, he should have had a couple of more mates doing that. Delhi evidently went on to win the match by 37 runs and handing Mumbai yet another reality check. (LIVE MATCH SCORECARD)


23.50 IST: OUT! McClenaghan is out and Delhi have won the match by 37 runs.

23.46 IST: OUT! Yuvraj is done for the night! Fourth catch for Rahul Tewatia tonight. Rabada gets his line right finally and hunts down the prized scalp of Yuvraj. He angles in a length ball on off, Singh tries to heave it into the stand at mid-wicket but fails to get the desired connection. Tewatia comes running in from the deep and takes the catch. Smiles all around in the Delhi camp. Mumbai Indians 170/8 in 18.1 overs

23.42 IST: FOUR! MI 168/7 in 18 overs

23.42 IST: FOUR! Yuvraj reaches his fifty with a streaky shot, 13th in the League. Boult hurls in a shortish ball around off, angling in, Singh swings his bat hard and edges it wide of short third man.

23.28 IST: FOUR! A cheeky shot played there by McClenaghan. A full toss in the line of the stumps, McClenaghan walks across the stumps and paddles it fine down the leg side for a boundary. 55 needed off 18 balls. MI 159/7 in 17 overs

23.26 IST: OUT! There is a thin outside edge. A full length delivery outside off, skidding off the surface after landing, Cutting tries hitting it down with a straight bat but fails to middle. Pant collects the ball, they appeal and the finger goes up after a delay. Cutting takes the DRS after consulting his partner but the replays find some wood. MI 153/7 in 16.2 overs

23.28 IST: SIX! Smashed and Yuvi is being chanted around Wankhede! Electrifying! 6 from the over! Yuvraj has attacked Axar here. Receives one more shorter delivery and he turns to dismiss it over mid-wicket. 150 up for Mumbai. 64 needed off 24 balls. MI 150/6 in 16 overs

23.27 IST: SIX! Yuvraj is still out there and is hammering away. High and handsome! Yuvraj is Mumbai's last hope and he certainly is keeping it alive by playing big shot. Lines up for a big shot and clobbers it over the bowler's head. MI 143/6 in 15.4 overs

23.26 IST: OUT! Boult gets the last laugh after an expensive over and Krunal heads back after a gritty 32. He eyes the mid-wicket fence and swings his bat accordingly. But his shot lacks the desired power to clear the fielder. Rahul Tewatia once again is in action as he takes the catch easily. A little cameo from Krunal is over but Mumbai needed more from him. 80 needed off 30 balls. MI 135/6 in 15.1 overs

23.23 IST: FOUR! Smashed on the full toss and Krunal is enjoying himself out there. MI 134/5 in 14.4 overs

23.21 IST: FOUR! Once again the over begins with a boundary. Full toss around leg, Krunal picks it off his pads and swings it off the inner half to fine leg for a boundary. MI 127/5 in 14.1 overs

23.18 IST: FOUR! Another full toss. Way wide outside off, Krunal reaches out and guides it past short third man for a boundary. Poor bowling. MI 122/5 in 13.5 overs

23.18 IST: FOUR! That went to the fence in the blink of an eye! A full toss by Ishant at 141 kph. Quicker it comes to the batsman and it's been drilled to covers. MI 118/5 in 13.4 overs

23.16 IST: SIX! Krunal hammers that and welcomes Ishant for a maximum. Back of a length ball around off, Krunal keeps his weight on the back foot and dispatches it over wide long on for a biggie. MI 114/5 in 13.1 overs

23.13 IST: FOUR! Straight down the ground and an excellent shot played by Krunal on Paul's delivery. Another knuckle delivery, overpitched on middle, Krunal smacks it straight down the ground for a boundary at long off. MI 106/5 in 12.5 overs

23.12 IST: Slower and on middle, shorter in length, Yuvraj once again is early into his pull shot and takes a blow on his chest.

23.09 IST: Axar Patel to Yuvraj Singh, Fires across a flatter and shorter ball wide outside off, Singh cracks it off his back foot to sweeper cover for a run.

Krunal Pandya is in next.

23.04 IST: Axar Patel to Hardik Pandya, OUT! Caught and bowled! Hardik departs without troubling the scorers. Patel lets out a flatter and shorter ball around middle and off. Hardik goes on the back foot to play the punch but he hits it back aerially. Patel goes down quickly to take the catch and it's another blow to Mumbai.

23.02 IST: Keemo Paul to Kieron Pollard, OUT! All West Indian show! Keemo has removed Kieron! He has deceived the big Trinidadian with a well-disguised slower one at 113 kph. Pollard is way too early into his shot and ends up spooning it high in the air towards sweeper cover. Rahul Tewatia takes the skier safely to bring an end to a 50-run stand. 119 needed off 55 balls. MI 95/4 in 10.5 Overs

23.02 IST: Axar Patel to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR. Another wonderful shot! Full and down the leg side, Yuvraj swings it over square leg and ends the over in style! 20 from the over!

23.01 IST: Axar Patel to Yuvraj Singh, SIX! Phenomenal shot! Shades of the old Yuvi paa. Short and outside off, Yuvraj stays deep in the crease and flays it over extra cover. The ball goes all the way!

23.00 IST: Axar Patel to Kieron Pollard, FOUR.

22.57 IST: Axar Patel to Yuvraj Singh, MISFIELD, FOUR! Sloppy from Dhawan.

* Strategic time out 145 more needed from 11 overs. With Pollard around, anything is possible. With Yuvi around, any side could get tensed - the opposition or even his own, if he does not get going. With Hardik Pandya and Ben Cutting to come, nothing is unachievable. Mumbai would still believe. Dew has made its presence felt too. What about Delhi? Would they be taking it lightly? At their own peril. Here comes AXAR PATEL.

22.52 IST: Keemo Paul to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR! Supreme placement. Short and outside off, Yuvraj cuts it hard into the ground and beats backward point. Third man starts to race to his left but the ball is quicker.

22.50 IST: Keemo Paul to Yuvraj Singh, WIDE. Starts with a short one, banged around middle, Yuvraj lets it pass. Wide signalled.

* Keemo Paul is into the attack.

22.49 IST: Rahul Tewatia to Kieron Pollard, SIX! Up and over the sightscreen! Safest part to hit. Floated delivery, landing full around off, Pollard plants his front foot forward and smokes it over the bowler's head. MI 61/3 in 8 Overs

22.46 IST: Rahul Tewatia to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! Brute power! Full and flighted on off, Pollard bludgeons it over the bowler's head for a boundary. 50 up for Mumbai in the 8th over. MI 53/3 in 7.1 Overs

Spin time! Rahul Tewatia is into the attack.

22.42 IST: Kagiso Rabada to Yuvraj Singh, Fuller in length on middle at 141.9 kph, Yuvraj flicks it to deep mid-wicket for a single.

Buzz around the stadium. Yuvraj Singh gets ready to face his first ball...

Kieron Pollard is in next.

22.38 IST: Ishant Sharma to Quinton de Kock, OUT! Two wickets in the over and Mumbai are forced on the back foot. This is a massive blow. Quinton de Kock is out of here. Back of a length ball angling down the leg side, de Kock glances it off his hips and it flies towards Boult at fine leg. The Kiwi times his jump to perfection near the fence and takes a fine catch over his head. A disappointed Quinton is on his bike. DC 45/3 in 5.5 Overs

22.35 IST: Ishant Sharma to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! And again! De Kock holds the key for Mumbai here. Longer he stays, better it is for their chance.

22.34 IST: Ishant Sharma to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! Short around leg, de Kock gets inside the bounce and pulls it down to fine leg for a boundary.

* Huge cheer from the crowd as Yuvraj Singh arrives to bat at the Wankhede Stadium. 177 needed off 89 balls.

22.33 IST: Ishant Sharma to Suryakumar Yadav, OUT!  Yadav is well short! Second blow to Mumbai inside the Powerplay. A length ball on off, Suryakumar bunts it down to mid off and takes on the Delhi skipper. He scampers across to the other end as Iyer attacks the ball and scores a direct hit at the bowler's end.

22.30 IST: Kagiso Rabada to Quinton de Kock, Another delivery skidding off the surface at 145.8 kph, de Kock is beaten due to the excessive pace and gets struck high on the pads. It rolls to the off side and they cross for a leg bye. MI 34/1 in 4.2 Overs

Kagiso Rabada is into the attack now.

Suryakumar Yadav is the new batsman.

22.24 IST: Ishant Sharma to Rohit Sharma, OUT! Another knuckle ball and this time Sharma, the bowler has got the better of Sharma, the batsman. Rohit tries to flick it across the line but fails to close the face of his bat properly. It balloons in the air and Rahul Tewatia is waiting for it to come to him at the edge of the fence at deep square leg. MI 33/1 In 3.3 Overs

22.21 IST: Trent Boult to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! De Kock on fire! This is a real gift from the Kiwi to him. A juicy full toss on the pads, de Kock picks it up and clips it fine down the leg side. MI 27/0 in 2.5 Overs

22.20 IST: Trent Boult to Quinton de Kock, SIX! Enough of sighters for de Kock! He has started to open his arms now. Back of a length ball angling into him, Quinton has that right in the arc as he smashes it over mid-wicket.

22.19 IST: Trent Boult to Quinton de Kock, FOUR.

22.18 IST: Trent Boult to Quinton de Kock, Full and angling in on middle and leg, de Kock flicks it with great timing but there is a deep square leg fielder in place. Only one run.

22.16 IST: Ishant Sharma to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! First boundary and it has come off the outside edge. Ishant lands it on a length around off, Sharma tries to play a cover drive but it takes a thick outside edge and screams away to the third man fence.

22.14 IST: Ishant Sharma to Rohit Sharma, Edgy! Angling into the batsman, on a length, Sharma tries flicking but it takes the inside edge and flies wide of mid-wicket. A single is taken.

Ishant Sharma to steam in from the other end.

22.12 IST: Trent Boult to Rohit Sharma, Misfield from Rabada! A pitched up ball on off, Rohit pushed it with good timing towards mid off where Kagiso dived but encountered some bad bounce. The ball went down to long off and they took a couple of runs.

22.09 IST: Trent Boult to Quinton de Kock, Good length ball on middle, de Kock turns it in the gap on the leg side and crosses.

22.08 IST: Trent Boult to Rohit Sharma, Starts with a length delivery. Angling away from the batsman around off, Sharma gently pushes it towards extra cover and rushes to the other end.

The chase is underway! Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are the Mumbai openers. Delhi are beginning with the pace of Trent Boult. All set, here we go...

Colin Ingram praises Rishabh Pant and feels he is a heck of a talent and belted the bowlers to all parts of the park. Adds that even watching him bat in the nets is awesome. On his own performance, Ingram replies that he never used to love this format but he has worked on his game and feels it's a challenge to bat at any position. Credits the partnership between Pant and Tewatia which took them past the 200-run mark.

* The innings can be split into three parts - the first part which belonged to Mumbai, removing two wickets quickly. The second, which belonged to the resurgence in the form of Shikhar Dhawan and Colin Ingram. And finally the third, which was owned simply by Rishabh Pant. Dhawan bided his time, trying to stem the flow of wickets, Ingram started the counter-attack but the final punch, was delivered by Mr. Pant.

17, 18, 12, 15, 21 and 16 - the carnage in the last 6 overs - 99/3 - Uffff! What an exhibition of batting by Rishabh Pant. He was 1 off 5 when the 14th over ended. Has smashed 77 from the remaining 22 since then. Wow.

21.56 IST: What an exhibition of batting by Rishabh Pant. He was 1 off 5 when the 14th over ended. Has smashed 77 from the remaining 22 since then. Wow.

* 17, 18, 12, 15, 21 and 16 - the carnage in the last 6 overs - 99/3 - Uffff!

21.52 IST: Bumrah has hurt himself here! Worrying signs! Not looking too good. Full and on middle, Pant drives it straight back and Bumrah tries to stop it in his followthrough. He seems to have hurt his shoulder in the process and goes down in pain.  And that's the end of Delhi's innings! 213/6 in 20 overs

21.51 IST: Tewatia joining the fun! He has dismissed the best bowler in the world currently with utter disdain.

21.48 IST: SIX! Pant is just on fire here. This is like playing video game. Heaving every delivery coming your way. Bumrah is bowling from 'round the wicket and the angle is assisting Pant here. He muscles it over square leg and fetches one more maximum. DC 204/6 in 19.2 overs

21.46 IST: FOUR! DC 197/6 in 19 overs

21.45 IST! SIX! Ridiculous hitting! Why use two hands when just one hand is good enough! A length ball outside off, Rishabh has literally swung it with just one hand and sent it whistling over wide long on for a maximum. DC 193/6 in 18.5

21.44 IST: SIX! Now that's a PULL SHOT and Pant has executed that brilliantly! Pant has targeted the square leg field with his pull shots all evening. Not sure, why are they feeding him there? Salam digs in a short ball and Pant dismisses it via his pull shot over square leg for a biggie. DC 186/6 in 18.3 overs

21.40 IST: FIFTY! Rishabh Pant scores his 9th IPL half-century. Back of a length delivery around leg, Pant gets on top of the bounce and with the minimum followthrough of his bat, he has whipped it behind square leg. Mastering the short-arm jab shots. Yuvraj somewhere in the field will be feeling proud of that! Delhi Capitals 176/6 in 17.5 overs

21.38 IST: SIX! Smashed! What a shot from Pant! Moves to 47! Bumrah lands it on a length around middle, Rishabh stands back, swings his bat helicopter style and dispatches it over backward square leg for a maximum. DC 171/6 in 17.3 overs

21.34 IST: FOUR! Pant going berzerk here! 41 of 15 balls so far. Poor line from McClenaghan. From 'round the wicket, he digs in a short ball around leg to Pant. Rishabh just moves inside the bounce and hooks it fine down the leg side for a boundary. DC 161/4 in 17 overs

21.33 IST: OUT! Keemo Paul fails to impress in his debut! He has been bounced out by McClenaghan. Shorter one outside off, Keemo rocks back to pull but it takes the top edge and flies behind the stumps. De Kock moves across to his right and takes the skier safely. Delhi Capitals 157/5 in 16.5 overs 

21.30 IST: FOUR! A high full toss outside off, Pant throws his bat at it with the intention to swing it over the leg side. But it takes the outer half and flies over mid off for a boundary. DC 152/4 in 16.3 overs

21.27 IST: SIX! That has been hammered! Pandya concedes 16 runs in the last three deliveries! 8 coming off this over! Pant is finding his range, although this one came more from the top edge. Short and angled in, Pant is inside the bounce as he swings his bat firmly across the line. It flies off the top edge and clears square leg.

21.26 IST: FOUR! A 'PANTastic' shot! Top class! Short and wide outside off, plenty of width available, Pant latches onto it and nails it over extra cover for a boundary. DC 143/4 in 15.5 overs

21.25 IST: SIX! Smashed and Pant is hammering away. Pandya left stunned. DC 139/4 in 15.4 overs 

* Keemo Paul comes into bat.

21.21 IST: OUT! Pandya removes Dhawan who was looking good. He has found the fielder in the deep with surgical precision. A cutter by Hardik, shorter and slower outside off, Shikhar pulls it early and straight down Suryakumar Yadav's throat at deep mid-wicket. He is a safe fielder and won't drop those sitters. Dhawan's uncharacteristic knock is over.

21.18 IST: SIX! DC 131/3 in 15 overs

21.17 IST: Lands just inside the rope. Shortish and on middle, Pant shuffles across the stumps and powers it over backward square leg. It nearly went all the way.

21.13 IST: That's up in the air, doesn't carry to mid off. Kevin Pietersen terms it as a silly shot on air. Pant tries to flick it over mid-wicket without giving attention to the variation in pace. It comes slowly off the surface to catch the top edge. Balloons in the air and falls well short of mid off. Heart in mouth stuff for Rishabh.

21.10 IST: OUT! The Aussie strikes to break the 83-run stand! A much-desired breakthrough for Mumbai! The slower one has done wonders for Cutting. He serves it outside off on a length, Ingram heaves it over mid-wicket but his shot lacks proper connection. Hardik Pandya in the deep moves back a bit and catches the ball comfortably. End of a valuable knock from the South African. Now, it's over to the middle order to take it forward. DC 112/3 in 13 overs

21.06 IST: FOUR! Effortless! Cutting puts it on a shorter length outside off, angling away from the southpaw, Dhawan stays back and runs it down through the gap between backward point and short third man.  DC 112/2 in 12.5 overs

21.05 IST: A shorter delivery, slower in pace, Ingram shuffles across the stumps and spoons it over short fine leg for a boundary.

* Ben Cutting comes into the attack

21.00 IST: FOUR! Bumrah taken for a drive by Dhawan. Tremendous timing and fine placement! Bumrah lands it on a length and outside off, Dhawan leans into the drive and threads it through the gap between extra cover and mid-off. DC 100/2 in 11.3 overs

20.58 IST: FOUR! Bang! Krunal drags his length short and serves it outside off. Ingram rocks back and blazes it through cover-point. Suryakumar tries his best to pull it back but fails.

20.57 IST: FOUR! This one has gone to the left of Suryakumar and he stands no chance of even attempting to cut it off. Flat and shorter outside off, Ingram shows no mercy and muscles it to the sweeper cover fence. DC 90/2 in 10.4 overs

20.56 IST: FOUR! Brute power! Extra flight but it's too full outside off, Ingram latches onto it and bludgeons it down through mid off for a powerful boundary. No stopping this one. DC 86/2 in 10.3 overs

20.55 IST: Straighter one, defended back this time. 33 in the last 3 overs. We have reached the halfway stage, Delhi are 82/2!

20.54 IST: SIX! High and handsome! McClenaghan digs in a short ball outside off, Shikhar camps back, just uses the pace of the bowler and ramps it over third man for a biggie.

20.52 IST: FOUR! Third time in a row the over starts with a boundary. Width on offer outside off, Dhawan flashes his bat at it and gets a bottom edge. It runs fine down to third man for a boundary. DC 75/2 in 9.2 overs

20.47 IST: FOUR! That could have been a 'wonder' catch. Ingram manages to get away. A long hop on middle, Ingram rocks back and pulls it thunderously to the deep mid-wicket fence. DC 67/2 in 8.1 overs

20.46 IST: SIX! Smashed and Ingram has taken Pandya to the cleaners. Short in length around off, Ingram quickly drops his weight on the back leg and hammer-pulls it all the way over mid-wicket. DC 61/2 in 7.5 overs

20.43 IST: FOUR! That's off Ingram's bat and all the way for a boundary on Pollard's delivery. 50 comes up with this boundary! Short and wide outside off, Ingram rocks back and slaps it over Pollard at backward point for a boundary. DC 52/2 in 7.1 overs

* Confusion! Confusion! Colin Ingram is ready to take strike but... Shikhar Dhawan should be doing that. The umpire realizes it just in time. The batsmen switch ends. Umpire S Ravi is smiling, he nearly made a blunder there.

20.35 IST: Too full in length on middle, Dhawan bunts it down to mid on and the fielder is on the edge of the circle. A single to end the over, 9 from it. Powerplay done, a mixed-bag for both teams!

20.33 IST: Puts it on a good length around off, Dhawan reaches out and strokes it to sweeper cover for another run in this over.

20.32 IST: That's how Iyer was dismissed! 

20.30 IST: FOUR! Smashed and that's Dhawan for you. Dhawan greets Pandya with a cracking boundary. A delivery with plenty of width outside off, Shikhar spanks it through covers. DC 40/2 in 5.1 overs

* Hardik Pandya is into the attack as well.

20.29 IST: Brilliant over by Bumrah with just 3 off it. 

20.29 IST: Too full in length on middle, Shikhar tries to block but gets an inside edge onto the pads. It rolls in front of first slip and Ingram calls him through for a quick single.

Jasprit Bumrah is the first bowling change.

20.26 IST: FOUR! Shot! Ingram has been in brilliant form of late and this shot proves it. A little bit of width on offer outside off, Colin attacks it and powers it past point for a boundary. Eventful over, 11 runs and a wicket from it!

20.23 IST: OUT! Kieron Pollard has taken a stunner! The Wankhede Stadium roars! This is outstanding stuff from the West Indian. Wow, just wow! Back of a length delivery outside off, Shreyas packs a punch from the back foot but fails to keep it down. Kieron Pollard manning the extra cover region flies to his right and has taken a stunning one-handed catch. The Mumbai players are mobbing him. Superb stuff. DC 29/2 in 3.4 overs

20.21 IST: SIX! Smashed! DC 29/1 in 3.3 overs

20.17 IST: FOUR! This time the opportunity is grabbed as Iyer slams that for a boundary. Just uses the pace of the bowler. 11 from the over. Rasikh offers width outside off, Shreyas stays put inside the crease and just opens the face of the bat to deflect it wide of short third man. DC 22/1 in 3 overs

20.15 IST: FOUR! Now that's a top shot by Iyer there. He has nailed it! Good length delivery outside off, Iyer latches onto the width and smashes it over covers for a boundary. He has been in superb form of late and would like to make a statement in this first match. DC 16/1 in 2.3 overs

20.12 IST: Top stop, Hardik! Short in length and outside off, Iyer blazes his square cut to point where Pandya makes an excellent stop.

* Shreyas Iyer is in next.

20.10 IST: OUT! Edged and gone! Shaw walks back. Great start for Mumbai. Deviation off the surface and Shaw has edged it behind. It's on a length and angling away from the batsman. Shaw, minus any footwork, tries to force it through the off side but ends up getting a fat outside edge to the keeper. Quinton de Kock makes no mistake and Delhi have lost an early wicket. DC 10/1 in 1.3 overs

20.08 IST: FOUR! And that comes off Shaw's bat. Well played by the youngster. Good shot! Shaw anticipates a shorter delivery this time. Stays inside the crease and thumps his pull shot over mid-wicket for a boundary. Nice high back lift from Prithvi! DC 10/0 in 1.2 overs

20.06 IST: Misfield from Hardik! Fractionally short in length on off, Shaw punches it off his back foot to point where the fielder misfields and allows a run. DC 6/0 in 1 over

20.05 IST: Beauty of a delivery! This will make Salam feel a lot better about himself. On a length around middle, nipping away a shade, Dhawan tries his best to block but it whizzes past the blade.

20.03 IST: Out off a Free Hit! Short in length and around off, Dhawan pulls it off his back foot and it goes over mid-wicket. Krunal in the deep catches it and immediately releases the ball. A single taken. Both the openers are off the mark.

20.01 IST: A NO-BALL given. Overstepping by Salam and Delhi have a chance to go big early. Lovely swinging delivery to begin proceedings. On a length around off, shaping in, Shaw pushes it towards extra cover where the fielder dives and makes a half stop. They cross. It's called a no ball for overstepping. Free Hit time...

19.58 IST: It's time to get going! Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are the openers for Delhi. Rasikh Salam has been given the opportunity to begin proceedings with the ball. The 17-year old will be really excited. Here we go...

19.57 IST: Here's what the Mumbai Indians line up looks like. 

19.55 IST: In other news, Kolkata Knight Riders pull off a stunning win by 6 wickets against Sunrisers Hyderabad at Eden Gardens.

18.41 IST: It's the battle of the 'Blues'. Who will emerge victorious tonight?

Hello and welcome to our live blog of the IPL Match 3 between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals live from Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. The TOSS will take place at 7.30 PM IST while play will commence from 8.00 PM IST.

Brief Preview: Workload management of pacer Jasprit Bumrah and all-rounder Hardik Pandya will be the main focus when Mumbai Indians take on a rechristened Delhi Capitals in their first match of the 12th Indian Premier League here today. Pandya has had two breakdowns in the last six months. A recurring back-injury first ruled him out of the Asia Cup in last September before missing the home series against Australia. Even former India pacer Zaheer Khan, who is Mumbai Indians' Director of Cricket, felt Pandya's workload should be monitored since he has had recurring lower back injuries. (Read Full Preview Here)
