The Mumbai Indian trounce Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020 at Dubai. Kieron Pollard’s men were just too good on the day and ruthless in every department as they bossed the entire match.
Once again it was the deadly bowling combination of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult that never allowed DC to reach a respectable score. The two seasoned fast bowlers made full use of the fresh wicket and made the ball talk.

Boult rocked DC early and removed both their openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw. Then it was the turn of Bumrah who once again showcased his class.
Boult in his 4 overs spell gave away just 21 runs and picked 3 wickets. Whereas Bumrah too picked 3 wickets by giving away mere 17 runs. After his brilliant performance again DC, Bumrah now rightfully holds the purple cap and is now the leading wicket-taker in IPL 2020.
Rohit Is Getting Better, Getting There- Kieron Pollard
The DC batting once again looked ordinary and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. They could only muster a score of 110 runs after their 20 overs against the mighty MI bowling attack.
Then in the chase, Ishan Kishan continued his good form and scored a well-made unbeaten half-century and took his side home. Kishan was also adjudged the man of the match award for scoring 72 runs from 47 deliveries. Eventually, MI chased down the target in just the 15th over and solidified their position in the top 2.
Here’s what the winning captain Kieron Pollard said in the post-match presentation.
“Boult was exceptional. That’s his strength, bowling with the new ball. He’s consistently given us good starts. Bumrah, I kept delaying him, on this track with his angles. He’s jumping to bowl in the powerplays, but again I saw today getting those early wickets, and with the spinners getting grip, kept him for the middle overs.
“Each and every game Ishan is getting better and better. Long may it continue. Been able to adapt to different scenarios. Didn’t even start at the beginning, then-No. 4. He prefers to often, and he’s adapting. Rohit is getting better, getting there. Start of the tournament you aim to get to the playoffs, and now it’s about getting to the top two”, said Kieron Pollard.
