Besides all this, DD will be more under pressure as they will be playing this match at MI's home Wankhede Stadium and going by the numbers in past, Mumbai holds upper hand both in terms overall head to head clash and at their home venue as well. And by the time it was done, Mumbai were left ruing a batting slide as Delhi Daredevils chased down 195 off the final ball.
Both the batsman cleared the boundary ropes easily as runs began to flow thick and fast. For Delhi, Trent Boult, Daniel Christian and Rahul Tweatia picked a couple of wickets each. Mumbai's batting heights came in phases, and during those phases, nearly every Delhi bowler was punished. The right-hander slammed 32-ball 53 and hit seven fours and a six.
Over 3: 40/0, In this over MI is on fire as they score 15 runs with the help of two 4's and a 6. The highlight of his assault was a reverse swept six as Mumbai muscled their way to 144 for 2 after 13 overs. Spinners Rahul Tewatia and Glenn Maxwell managed to pull things back for Delhi in the middle overs as they hardly gave Mumbai batsmen to free their arms. He has hit 41 off 20 as of now and is scoring more runs with Lewis on the other side of the pitch. He neither batted or bowl in the first match and in the second match, he scored a crawling 23-ball 28 and did not get to bowl as well. Thus, Mumbai will continue to remain rain free, however, humidity will be on the high and temperatures will range in the early 30s, resulting in some discomfort to the players.
