Delhi Capitals survived a tense chase at MA Chidambaram Stadium to defeat the Mumbai Indians for the first time in five IPL games, winning by six weekends on Tuesday.
Earlier in the night, experienced leg spinner Amit Mishra spun his net and collected four important leashes as Delhi Capitals narrowed the Mumbai Indians to below 137 to 9 in their IPL game on Tuesday.
Mumbai collapsed from the middle row of the slow Chepauk track after they were 67 for 2 on one stage as Delhi, led by Mishra (4/24), made a spectacular comeback.
Then joined Suryakumar Yadav (24) Rohit Sharma (44), which received its first limit – an elegant drive, which rushed into a deep additional roof railing in the third part.
The duo combined the inning with their 58 stands.
Rohit faced ace-spinning player Ravichandra Ashwin (0/30) in the fourth, over which he won 15 games.
The skipper from Mumbai broke the border and maximum – attic over additional coverage, while Surya also received a border, courtesy of the outer edge.
Then Rohit struck Kagiso Rabada (1/25) for a six over long. Surya then hit consecutive fours from Mishra, while Mumbai raced to 55 for one after six overs.
However, Delhi tied the defensive champions by taking three quick wickets.
First Avesh Khan (2/15) fired Surya, who nailed her to Pant, and then Mishra removed Rohit and Hardik Pandya (0) in the 9th over when Mumbai slipped to 77 for 4.
Both Rohit and Hardick went on for a long time.
Then Mumbai lost half of its country by 81 as Crowned Panda (1) cut the ball under the hand of Lalit Yadav (1/17) on his stumps.
Mishra then used a fog to catch Kieron Pollard (2) in front of the gate while MI balanced at 84 for six.
In the end, the 26th of Ishan Kishan, who became the fourth gate of Mishra, together with the 23rd of Giant Yadav, took the country beyond the 125-mile mark.
