Amit Mishra is named the MAN OF THE MATCH. He says that he is happy with his performance. Adds that he tried to execute his plans and it paid off. Mentions that he looks to pick the big wickets of Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya and he used his variations accordingly. Further says that he did not think that he will bat as he was confident that their batsmen will chase this total.

Rishabh Pant, Delhi skipper, says that he is happy with the result. Adds that they needed to get off to a good start to chase this total. Mentions that Dhawan played very well. Further says that Amit Mishra's bowling brought them back into the game. Praises Lalit Yadav for his calm batting. Finishes by saying that, they have learned that wickets in hand are key while chasing totals.

Shikhar Dhawan, who is wearing the Orange Cap is down for a chat. He says that this wicket was very different from the one at Wankhede. Adds that they looked to keep wickets in hand, as they knew that bowling towards the end would be very difficult due to the dew.

Earlier in the first innings, Mumbai batsmen did not get off to a great start as they lost Quinton de Kock early. The partnership between Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma was crucial for them. Rohit Sharma was going well and was playing attacking shots but when he fell the collapse started for Mumbai. From 76/3, it became 84/6. The star for Delhi with the ball was the old fox, Amit Mishra, he picked up 4 wickets and rattled Mumbai. Ishan Kishan and Jayant Yadav's partnership helped them reach close to 140.

Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai skipper, says that they could have batted well in the middle overs. Adds that it has happened frequently and need to change it. Further adds that Delhi bowled really well and kept picking important wickets. Informs that he just has a niggle and he should be fine soon.

Spinners bowled very well for Mumbai. Jayant Yadav picked up Shaw and put the pressure at the beginning. Rahul Chahar continued his great form and picked up the dangerous Shikhar Dhawan. Pollard rolled his arm over and Smith got out just when he was looking set. Boult was great once again and gave away just 23 in his 4 overs. Bumrah bowled a couple of no balls in the penultimate over and that didn't help their cause. Despite their good bowling, the total was too low to defend.

Delhi started off badly as they lost Shaw early. But then Smith and Dhawan stitched a very good partnership. Smith was looking good and was anchoring the innings but got out to Kieron Pollard. Dhawan carried on his good form and scored 45 valuable runs. But he fell just when he was looking to up the ante. Pant too fell shortly after a while looking to take on Bumrah. They were a few tense moments towards the end but Shimron Hetmyer and Lalit Yadav saw them through. They planned their chase very well on this sticky wicket.

It has been a great victory for Delhi. They did well to hold their nerves. It got a bit tense towards the end, but Hetmyer and Lalit Yadav did well to seal the chase for them.

Kieron Pollard to Shimron Hetmyer, NO BALL! What an anti-climatic end to the match! Pollard bowls a full toss and Shimron Hetmyer looks to finish it in style. But ends up hitting to mid off. But hold on, the full toss was so high that it was given a no ball. DELHI WIN BY 6 WICKETS!!
