Amit Mishra, Player of the Match: Just tried to bowl good areas, just try to take wickets. Different bowlers have different style. My style is to bowl in the air. Don't want to change much. Sometimes the speed maybe. I try to understand the wicket and bowl like that. They are winners for MI and so I always go for wickets against these guys initially. I was worried but I knew our batters are smart enough. They have some experience now after playing two matches here. Rishabh Pant: When we started we were little under pressure. Mishy bhai got us into the game. Bowlers did a great job to restrict them to 136. We like to take it into the ground, take one match at a time.

Shikhar Dhawan - Orange cap holder - Totally opposite to Wankhede, feeling great to win in Chennai, feels good when you can beat a team like Mumbai Indians, the confidence level will naturally go high. We knew that it would be tough for them when the ball gets wet, the spinners would find it hard, wanted to keep the partnerships going, strung together a good stand with Lalit (Yadav), a bit disappointed at not having finished it off. But glad that we ended up winning the game, the way we played, I think we deserved to win Rohit Sharma: After the start we got we should have batted better in the middle overs. It is happening time and again. We aren't able to capitalize on our starts and we need to understand as a batting unit. But you have to give credit to the Delhi bowlers, they kept it tight and kept taking wickets.

It should be fine. 23:25 Local Time, 17:55 GMT, 23:25 IST: So this was too low a target for even MI's bowlers to defend. They tried. The game turned into a scrap until the final couple of overs. But those couple of no-balls from Bumrah in the penultimate one were just too hard to offset. The blame lies in the batting though, with their middle-order once again coming a cropper.

Commentary

Both these teams have one more match to play at this venue. MI's middle-order would be eager to get it done with. The engine room, as they call it, has struggled in these conditions and today they were thoroughly outfoxed by Mishra's guile. So DC join RCB with six points, having played a game more. A double header tomorrow. Do join us for it. Until then it's goodbye from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Vineet Anantharaman, Abhinand Raghavendran, Pradeep Krishnamurthy and Mukesh Gowda.
