Shikhar Dhawan’s ‘big’ record, Amit Mishra’s feat too; Delhi showed Inga to Mumbai

IPL 2021:

The Mumbai Indians’ strategy of forcing the opposition to chase the target till the last over and winning on the strength of the performance of the key bowlers failed today. Chasing 137, the Delhi Capitals were in the winning position but were forced to fight by Trent Bolt and Jaspreet Bumrah. Delhi Capitals won the match by 6 wickets. Kieron Pollard’s no-ball was Delhi’s winning run. In this match, Shikhar Dhawan became the first batsman to score 5,000 runs as an opener in the IPL.

Earth’s failure …
The Delhi spinners could not do as much as the Mumbai spinners. The ball was constantly getting wet due to the dew factor and it did not help the bowlers to get a grip. His blow also hit Mumbai. Jayant Yadav was given a wicket by Delhi opener Prithvi Shaw. After Prithvi returned for 7, Shikhar Dhawan and Steve Smith kept the Delhi scoreboard afloat with a half-century partnership. But, in the 10th over, Kieron Pollard gave Mumbai the wicket. Steve Smith was caught for 33 off 29 balls with four fours. MI vs DC, MI vs DC live score, IPL 2021

Shikhar Dhawan clashed alone …
After Smith’s return, Shikhar took over the match. With 48 runs needed in the last six overs to win, Dhawan hit 6 and 4 off the first two balls in the 15th over by Rahul Chahar, but Dhawan took the wicket off the fifth ball. He caught Krinal Pandya in an attempt to hit Chahar’s bowling. Dhawan returned for 45 off 42 balls with 5 fours and 1 six. In the first ball of the 16th over, Trent Bolt gave DC batsman Lalit Yadav a chance to run out. While Rishabh Pant was on strike, he placed Bolt on the ball. By then, Lalit Yadav was in the middle of the pitch. However, the non-strike end did not have a backup player, and Unbolt could not make a direct hit. In the 17th over, Jaspreet sent DC captain Rishabh (7) back. MI vs DC T20 Match, MI vs DC Live Score
