23:53 (IST)

 Delhi Capitals end their losing streak against Mumbai Indians in their first meeting in IPL 2021 with a six-wicket win at Chepauk. A clinical, all-round performance from Delhi saw them restricting MI to 137/9, before Shikhar Dhawan anchored yet another chase for them. It was not an easy track to bat, but Dhawan's 53-run partnership with Steve Smith laid the foundation for the chase. A special word for old warhorse Amit Mishra, who, playing his first IPL match of the season, returned with four wickets and Man of the Match award.

That brings an end to tonight's action, but cricket resumes tomorrow with Punjab Kings taking on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the same venue tomorrow. Do join us for the coverage tomorrow. Until then, it is good night from here. Stay safe, and take care!

23:47 (IST)

Amit Mishra, Man of the Match: "I was trying to bowl in good areas and was trying to take wickets. My style is to give more air to the ball and get it to dip, that's what I stuck to. I tried to understand the wicket and bowl accordingly. I wanted to get the big wickets, and I know Rohit, Pollard, and Hardik have served MI well for all these years., so it was important to get them early."

23:43 (IST)

Rishabh Pant, DC Captain: Actually we were under pressure when we started. Mishy bhai (Amit Mishra) brought us back in the game. Bowlers did a fantastic job to restrict them to 137. We like to keep it simple and take one match a time. We wanted to restrict them below 140 or 150. We are trying to groom a domestic player to bat at this pitch. 

23:33 (IST)

Shikhar Dhawan, Orange Cap holder: The pitch was totally opposite from the one at Wankhede. Feeling great to beat a team like MI, it gives us a lot of confidence. Very happy with the way we played. We decided to keep the momentum going, and we knew it will be tough for bowlers to bowl with dew. I think we deserved to win.

23:31 (IST)

DC's victory today in IPL:

- First after losing last five matches against MI.

- First after losing last six matches at Chennai.

Rohit Sharma, MI Captain: Yeah, we should have batted better in middle overs. We need to focus on that. We have not been able to capitalise on the start. You got to give credit to DC bowlers, they kept the pressure on. We knew dew is going to come in but it is not that difficult to grip the ball. If you have to win the game, you have to play smart cricket. Just a small niggle, I am in fine shape.

23:27 (IST)

DC win by 6 wickets!

Pollard to bowl the final over as DC need just five. He bowls a rank bad ball first up, short and wide, and Hetmyer nails the cut to level scores. Next, he bowls a no-ball on height as DC win by six wickets!

23:24 (IST)
four

Short and wide from Pollard, and Hetmyer's cut levels the scores.

23:23 (IST)

After 19 overs,Delhi Capitals 133/4 ( Lalit Yadav 22 , Shimron Hetmyer 10)

Bumrah runs in for the 19th. Nails a yorker, but it's a no-ball! What a time to get a free hit, and Lalit is caught off that free hit. Just a single. Another no-ball from Bumrah...that's unbelievable, and guess what, he gets Hetmyer caught of a free hit this time. Crazy over this. This is an excellent over for DC; no boundaries conceded but they run 10. DC need five runs in the final over.

23:16 (IST)

After 18 overs,Delhi Capitals 123/4 ( Lalit Yadav 19 , Shimron Hetmyer 5)

Bout to bowl the 18th. Raps Lalit on the legs, but that one was pitched outside leg, confirms DRS. Lalit makes room next ball but can't go past the in-field. Only a single there. Hetmyer on strike for the first time in IPL 2021, and he gets one in the slot. Hetmyer nails his drive to fetch a crucial boundary. He beats Hetmyer next ball; MI think they had their man, but replays suggest there wasn't an edge. 15 needed from 12 balls now.

Preview: Delhi Capitals (DC) have a new home, and that is Chennai as action moves for them from run-scoring Mumbai to the slow-paced Chennai wicket.

The Rishabh Pant-led side got off to a great start in this year's tournament with a win over the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) but their bowlers misfired in the second game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) as they lost a close game by 3 wickets. In the third game, DC came back strongly, making short work of Punjab Kings (PBKS), beating them by 6 wickets in an emphatic fashion.

Mumbai Indians started the season on a losing note, but they have been on the rise since then. They beat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in back-to-back games to collect points. The one challenge they will face against DC is to chase the target. The Chennai wicket is quite slow in nature and here chasing has been an issue for teams this season so far. In the only game MI lost in the season, they were chasing. DC too will be playing their first game at Chepauk and they are playing it in less than 48 hours of landing from Mumbai. Wankhede track had runs in it while in Chennai, scoring is not that easy. It will be a huge task for DC to adjust and adapt quickly here to make sure their campaign is on track.

There will be some exciting match-ups to look out for. Rishabh Pant vs Jasprit Bumrah will be one of them. Bumrah has had dominance over Pant in the past but with DC captain in form of his life currently, it will be interesting to see how Bumrah fares against him.

Also, looking at the slow nature of the pitch at Chepauk, we may see DC finally including Amit Mishra in the XI. Also, Mishra likes bowling against Rohit.

All players from both teams will be available for selection and there are no injury concerns on both sides. MI coach Mahela Jayawardene did mention about a niggle Hardik Pandya is facing and that is the reason the all-rounder is not bowling but he should be fine to continue playing today.

Squads:

Mumbai Indians: Quinton de Kock(w), Rohit Sharma(c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Adam Milne, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Piyush Chawla, Dhawal Kulkarni, Saurabh Tiwary, Aditya Tare, Chris Lynn, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jayant Yadav, James Neesham, Anmolpreet Singh, Anukul Roy, Mohsin Khan, Arjun Tendulkar, Marco Jansen, Yudhvir Singh

Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Steven Smith, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Marcus Stoinis, Lalit Yadav, Chris Woakes, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Lukman Meriwala, Ishant Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Amit Mishra, Umesh Yadav, Aniruddha Joshi, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Shimron Hetmyer, Praveen Dubey, Anrich Nortje, Vishnu Vinod, Manimaran Siddharth, Shams Mulani, Ripal Patel

IPL 2021: Halfway through, is gulf between top and bottom halves wider than ever?

Unless there is a drastic change for the lower half of the table – be it in their form, and/or fortune, and fickle-mindedness – this could be a rather long second half for RR, PBKS, KKR, and SRH.
