DC vs MI: Shikhar Dhawan's superb batting helped Delhi beat Mumbai by 6 wickets

Delhi Capitals defeated five-time champions Mumbai Indians by six wickets in a thrilling match of IPL 2021. 
Chasing a target of 138 runs, Delhi had to compete till the last over. But with five balls left and losing four wickets, Delhi achieved the target. Shimron Hetmyer crossed the team's lead. He scored 14 runs off eight balls with two fours. At the same time, Lalit Yadav remained unbeaten after scoring 22 runs in 25 balls. Delhi achieved the target with Kieron Pollard's Noble. This is Delhi's first win over Mumbai in the last six matches between the two teams. Last season, Delhi lost to Mumbai in all four matches.

Chasing the target, Delhi had a poor start. Prithvi Shaw continued to walk in the second over after scoring seven runs. He became a victim of Jayant Yadav. After this Shikhar Dhawan and Steve Smith tried to handle the innings for the second wicket. Both added 53 runs for the second wicket but this partnership was very slow. The Mumbai bowlers did not give any opportunity to Dhawan and Smith to score runs. Due to this, Delhi's team reached 64 runs in the ninth over, while Mumbai scored 55 runs in the first six overs. Smith scored 33 runs in 29 balls with the help of four fours and was dismissed as the second wicket. He was lbw out by Kieran Pollard.

After this, Delhi promoted Lalit Yadav to number four. But he also could not score fast. In such a situation, Delhi scored 100 runs in the 15th over. During this, Dhawan tried to score runs fast. Under this, he first hit Rahul Chahar for a six and then a four. But then he was out on Chahar's ball. Krunal Pandya caught his catch brilliantly. Dhawan scored 45 runs in 42 balls with five fours and a six. Captain Rishabh Pant could not do anything. He became the victim of Jaspreet Bumrah after scoring seven runs with a four.

Mishra put a break on Mumbai's innings

Earlier, due to the spin of leg spinner Amit Mishra, Delhi Capitals stopped Mumbai Indians for 137 runs for nine wickets. Mishra took four wickets for 24 runs. Avesh Khan, playing well with him, took two wickets for 15 runs, while off-spinner Lalit Yadav also took one wicket for 17 runs in four overs. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit decided to bat first after winning the toss but the team lost the wicket of Quinton Dickock in the third over itself. After scoring one run, he caught a catch off wicketkeeper captain Rishabh Pant off the ball of Marcus Stoinis. Rohit and Suryakumar Yadav carried the innings forward after this. Rohit hit the first four of the innings on Stoinis in the third over and then hit sixes on Ravichandran Ashwin and Kagiso Rabada. Suryakumar also welcomed Amit Mishra with two consecutive fours.

Mumbai scored 55 for one wicket in the power play. However, after scoring 24 off 15 balls, Suryakumar was caught by wicketkeeper Pant in an attempt to play Avesh Khan's third man. After this, Rohit also caught Steve Smith at long on in an effort to play a big shot off Mishra's ball. He hit three fours and three sixes while facing 30 balls. Hardik Pandya was also caught by Smith at long on in an attempt to repeat Rohit's shot in the same over from Mishra. He could not even open an account. Krunal Pandya also played a ball from Lalit Yadav for a wicket after scoring a five-ball single while Mishra lbw Kieron Pollard (02) helped Mumbai score 84 for six from one wicket.

The century of Mumbai's runs was completed in the 15th over. Ishan Kishan attempted to increase the run pace with a six over Ashwin and a four over Rabada, but Mishra bowled him. He scored 26 runs off 28 balls with a four and a six. Jayant Yadav also gave a catch to Rabada on the same ball after scoring 23 runs.
