Jasprit Bumrah broke the back of Delhi Capitals' batting line-up as he was at his scary best, picking up 3 crucial wickets in his quota of 4 overs.
With this fiery spell, Bumrah is now just the second bowler in the history of IPL to take 15+ wickets in seven consecutive seasons. The other name on the list is, quite poetically, Bumrah's mentor, Lasith Malinga.Secondly, Bumrah took over Harbhajan Singh to become the 2nd highest wicket taker for Mumbai Indians. These wickets include both IPL and Champions League T20.
- Lasith Malinga: 195
- Jasprit Bumrah: 148
- Harbhajan Singh: 147
Bumrah was the chief architect of MI's clinical bowling performance as he sent Marsh, Shaw, and Powell back in the hut. All deliveries were great, but the ones to Shaw and Powell in particular were pretty special.
Bumrah Bowled a scary short ball to Shaw, who in a bid to get out of the way, ended up gloving it to the keeper. During the backend of the first innings, DC were looking to get a move on with Powell still at the crease, but Bumrah had other plans.
He came to bowl the penultimate over and bowled a searing yorker to dismiss the dangerous Powell.
Earlier, Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to bowl first. Batting first, DC eventually ended up getting 159 on board. It's a must win game for Delhi Capitals if they want to qualify for the playoffs.
