All-round effort helps Delhi beat Mumbai by 37 runs

Veteran Yuvraj Singh (53 off 35) and Krunal Pandya’s quickfire cameo went in vain as Delhi Capitals outclassed Mumbai Indians by 37 runs in their campaign opener at the Wankhede Stadium here on Sunday.

A rebranded Delhi team showed its effort in every department of the game as firstly it rode Rishabh Pant’s blistering knock to post a massive total of 213 runs before their bowlers also rose to the occasion to bowl out the three-time champions for 176 in 19.2 overs.

Chasing the huge 214-run target, Mumbai had a slow but steady start as they put up 28 runs in three overs without losing a wicket. However, Delhi’s Ishant Sharma dealt the first blow as he dismissed Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma (14) in the fourth over.
