Vintage Mumbai Indians are back! Outstanding innings from RoHIT Sharma. Delhi Capitals brings another powerful all-rounder. Axar Patel registers his first IPL half-century this season. It was yet another last-over thriller between the teams.
New Delhi witnessed the 16th match of IPL 2023 between their home team, Delhi Capitals(DC) and Mumbai Indians(MI). MI has secured their first win this season. Yash Dhull, under 19 team captain, debuted today with DC. Apart from the captain, wickets kept falling at a faster pace. Jason Behrendorff and Piyush Chawla made it harder for the DC batters to stay on the field. The duo Axar Patel and David Warner have bashed boundaries all around the ground. Axar -the game changer- Patel scored four fours and five sixes. David Warner’s daughters supporting him in the stadium had to be the cutest moment of the night.
MI started the second innings with excellent hitting from both the openers. The captain, Rohit Sharma, meant business in the last match. Hyderabad ka Shaan, Tilak Varma delivers a consistent performance for the team. Appealing a review for wide has been a trend this season. Last night fans witnessed a review overturn an appeal for wide. That thriller last over had a close call for super over. However, Tim David(Impact player) and Cameroon Green ran between wickets like their life depended on it. Magnificent bowling from Anrich Nortje and Mukesh Kumar helped DC give a tough fight.
Rohit Sharma proved the allegations of him being out of form wrong. David Warner had to play captain innings to give a decent target. Bad luck for DC continues as MI bagged their first victory this season.
