IPL 2020: Bumrah, Boult lead Mumbai to another win
Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult bowled Mumbai Indians to yet another dominant win as their side beat Delhi Capitals by nine wickets in the Indian Premier League at the Dubai International Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Asked to bat, Delhi could post just 110 for nine in their 20 overs. Only captain Shreyas Iyer (25) and Rishabh Pant (21) could provide any resistance in the face of some terrific bowling by Mumbai. The other batsmen simply struggled to get going as Bumrah (3-17) took hold of the purple cap. At the other end Boult (3-21) provided terrific support with his left-arm seam.
The chase for Mumbai was fashioned by an excellent opening stand between Ishan Kishan (72 n.o.: 47b, 8x4, 3x6) and Quinton de Kock (26) as they added 68 for the opening wicket. None of the Delhi bowlers could create any impact for them to post a win. Mumbai overhauled the target in 14.1 overs to seal the win with nine wickets to spare and finished on 111 for one.
