Right! We have had a cracker of a Super Sunday. Both the games played today were very entertaining. In the first game, Rajasthan staged an unlikely comeback and beat Hyderabad right towards the end. In this game, Mumbai were the all-round better team and they deserve the 2 points for this performance. The action continues on Monday, 12 October 2020 at Sharjah as Bangalore take on Kolkata. This promises to be an exciting clash as Kolkata are 3rd in the table and Bangalore are on the 4th position and they both have the same number of points as well, as they are both on 8 points.
The Man of the Match is QUINTON DE KOCK! He starts off by saying that he enjoyed the win at the end of the day. Feels that he just kept it simple and mentions that he has batted well in the nets and that he needed to do the same in a match scenario. Adds that he knew he would score in a game and he just had to capitalize on the opportunity. Says that he does not think it is getting cooler going forward and that the team is starting to get used to the heat but it still is difficult due to the heat and humidity.
Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai skipper, tells that the win means a lot to them. Says that he is really proud of the way they have played the first half of the tournament. Says that they did everything in this game right and have got two crucial points. Tells that they did really well with the ball to restrict the team and then were more or less clinical with the bat. Says that the plan while chasing it to make sure the batsman who is set finishes the game. Feels a couple of set batters got out unfortunately and adds they will look to get better on that aspect. Mentions that chasing has been difficult in this tournament so he doesn’t want to point fingers for those small mistakes. Says that they need to stay cool and calm and try to take the game deep. Feels partnerships are always important in the run chase and that’s what they did here in this game.
Ishan Kishan is caught for a quick chat. Says that the middle overs were pretty important. Says that they needed to score runs and he managed to do that along with Suryakumar Yadav. Feels that both of them should’ve had finished the game but tells that it is good learning for them. Says that there was pressure on them as Delhi had a good bowling attack but says that it was all about having an intent out in the middle. Praises the performance of Yadav and says that he has been doing it for the team for a while.
Shreyas Iyer, the Delhi skipper, feels that they were probably 10-15 runs short. Feels the wicket of Stoinis in the form of run out cost them dearly as he was striking the ball really well and was spotting the ball like a football. Says that it was one of the main errors and they need to work on it. Feels Mumbai outplayed them in all the three departments. Says that the spinners bowled really well. Reckons had they taken a couple of more wickets inside the Powerplay, they would’ve been on top. Adds that they have to make sure they are not taking any teams lightly. On Rishabh Pant’s injury, Iyer says that he might have to rest for a week as per the doctor.
Earlier in the day, Delhi won the toss and decided to bat first. Shaw and Rahane were back in the hut early on. Iyer and Dhawan did well to stitch a good partnership and it was Dhawan, who was the pick of the lot with the batting of Delhi as he had a good knock of 69. Delhi ended their innings with 162, but they were probably a few runs short, which proved to be the difference in the end.
The bowling by Delhi was not the best as in the middle overs, they were being hit around by Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav. They started picking up wickets but it seemed like it was already too late at that stage. If they could have scalped those wickets quicker, then we might have had a different result on the cards. Rabada was good once again as he scalped 2 wickets. Overall, not the best performance with the ball for Delhi.
Mumbai started off well but they lost their skipper Rohit Sharma right towards the end of the Powerplay. Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav then took over the batting and they batted well as both of them scored 53 runs respectively. Yadav continued his great form into this game as well. Mumbai stumbled a bit towards the end as they lost a couple of quick wickets but with experienced veterans like Pollard and Krunal Pandya out there, they saw this game off well and chased the target down comfortably.
This has been a comprehensive performance from Mumbai both with the bat and the ball. They did not do much wrong tonight and will end this game with 2 more points in their bag. They will also overtake Delhi at the top of the table. Mumbai will be pleased with this performance.

DRINKS! Mumbai have been playing well but have seemed to stumble a little bit in the past couple of overs. They are still on top and it does look like they will chase this target down as they need just 33 runs in 28 balls. Delhi have done well to scalp these quick wickets and will look to continue the same in the last spell of the game. Kieron Pollard walks out for Mumbai with the bat.
15.2 overs (0 Run)
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Another one goes. The birthday boy falls for a duck. A length ball just outside off, Hardik looks to launch it over the bowler’s head but gets a thick outside edge. A simple catch behind the wickets for Carey. Two quick wickets and Mumbai might feel the pressure now.
