The Mumbai boy Rohit Sharma has been one of the best limited-overs players to play for the national team. After Virat Kohli, he is touted as the best batsman in India. Although he has not got the full-blown role as a captain for the Indian team, his leadership skills have been excellent for the Mumbai Indians team. Under his leadership, they have won 5 IPL titles. The form of Rohit Sharma this year has been good, but his starts have not been converted to a good score. In the test series against Australia, he initially stabilized the team but gave his wicket easily. The same trend has been continued until the IPL as well.
The Mumbai Indians team got off to a food start in the 8 overs and played with a run rate of 9. The captain Rohit Sharma, stitched a food partnership with Suryakumar Yadav to set a stable platform for the team. His shots were free-flowing, and he was looking fine to make it big in this game. His one-handed six-off Ravichandran Ashwin was the highlight of his innings.

But, he soon perished to the leg-spinner, Amit Mishra. The batting order then tumbled and the team could post only 137 on the board and lost the match.
The Delhi Capitals team is looking quite strong in all the departments. In the presence of batsmen like Shikhar Dhawan and Steve Smith, the team has the experience. While Lalit Yadav has certainly been impressive in the tournament. The leg-spinner Amit Mishra who replaced Rahane took 3 wickets, while Avesh Khan has fared well so far. The bench strength of the team is also excellent, with top Indian pacers Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav in the squad.
