Close finishes have become a trend in the IPL. In the latest version of IPL, close finishes have become a norm. Yesterday’s match between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals is no exception. The match had a see-saw effect with victory sliding both ways.
Mumbai Indians won the toss and elected to bowl first. Batting first, Delhi Capitals had a positive start but Prithvi Shaw who was in a bad form fell early and with wickets tumbling at the other end, Warner played defensively. Delhi Capitals‘ innings got a boost only when Axar Patel came to batting. He scored a fluent half-century and is the reason that DC posted a competitive total of 172.
Chasing this, Mumbai got to a dream start. Both Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan accelerated the innings at a great speed and with this, everyone thought that MI will win the match easily. However, wickets tumbled in clusters and MI won the match finally on the last ball.
