Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals have registered a convincing win over Mumbai Indians in the 46th match of IPL 2021. Put in to bat first, Mumbai could only manage 129 runs in 20 runs.

While Suryakumar Yadav top-scored with 33, both Axar Patel and Avesh Khan claimed 3 wickets each for Delhi. While chasing, Delhi too lost 3 wickets within the powerplay. But the captain Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer steadied the ship. While Pant scored 26, Iyer hit 33. Later, quick cameos from Hetmyer and Ashwin sealed the deal as well.

After the win, Axar Patel, who won the player of the match, said: “I am able to read the batter more easily and can plan better. If I can think about what the batter is doing and deny them the ideal ball, I can be more successful. (On de Kock’s wicket) I thought he would go for the slog sweep or through cover. That’s why I hung it out there for him to hit. I think there’s no need to experiment when some of the simple things are working better.”

Delhi Capitals captain, Rishabh Pant: “In Sharjah, the wicket always plays differently. Yes, it’s a hard-fought victory. We were planning to bowl mostly the fast bowlers in the powerplay. Easier for the spinner in these tracks. I held back one over of Ashwin to keep him away from Pollard and Hardik. Avesh is the find of the season for us, but at Delhi Capitals, we learn from our mistakes and pick up. We have to solidify our batting. Stoinis should be fine in a few days, and that will be good for us. You can’t always go for it, but someone has to be aggressive in the powerplay.”

Shreyas Iyer said: “I felt really amazing to bat through and take my team through. It was a low scoring game. I backed myself and my instincts. I knew I would win the game for the team. (On Ashwin’s role) He came in and was really positive. He wanted to take singles, and that went to the last two overs. He decided he would take the bowlers on during the last two overs. The transition in the last two years has happened. Since 2019, we have shifted that towards our team. We try to implement that within the dressing room. We try to be humble, and we try to ensure whoever’s day it is, he makes sure the team wins the game. (On the first championship and how they can get there) Once we are in these close games, we have to finish them. Every two points matter. If we finish in the top two, we have that opportunity to play that one game and make the final.”

Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians captain, said: “We knew it will be a difficult venue. We watched a lot of matches, and it’s not the easiest venues to play and make a lot of runs. We were well prepared and we knew what we had to do. I thought we didn’t bat well enough. We knew it wasn’t a 170-180 wicket, but we knew it was a 140 wicket. We just didn’t get the partnerships going. If your batters aren’t going to post runs on the board, it will be difficult to win games. I personally accept that. We’re not able to execute in the middle, which is particularly disappointing. We are not playing to our potential. Hopefully in the next two games, we play the way we are known for.”
