In the Qualifier 1 between same two sides, Mumbai Indians gave a hiding to Delhi Capitals to book their place for the final act. Batting first, Quinton de Kock looked at his best again even after he lost his partner Rohit Sharma for a duck. He and Suryakumar Yadav put on a crucial second wicket partnership to set the tempo for MI. They lost a couple of quick wickets in the middle overs but Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya literally toyed with Delhi Capitals’ death bowling to take them to 200. Ishan Kishan slammed 55 from just 30 balls that also included 3 maximums.
In reply, Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah did something that any opening pair of bowlers haven’t been able to do in the IPL history. They dismissed DC’s all of top 3 for ducks to leave them reeling at 3 down without a run on the board. From that, Delhi were never able to recover and Mumbai Indians showcased their dominance once again by 57-run victory margin. Jasprit Bumrah scalped 4 while Trent Boult had two wickets.
In the Qualifier 2, Delhi Capitals were up against a rampaging Sunrisers Hyderabad at Abu Dhabi. Batting first, DC took the Sunrisers by a surprise when they opened with Marcus Stoinis. The Australian caught SRH bowlers off-guard and provided an aggressive start with Shikhar Dhawan. Once Marcus Stoinis was dismissed on 38, Shreyas Iyer joined Shikhar Dhawan, who continued in his merry way to make a decisive 78. Shimron Hetmyer provided them a final push with a blazing 42 as DC piled on 189 runs from their 20 overs.
In the defense, Kagiso Rabada was at his best right from the beginning as he dismissed David Warner with a beautiful in-swinger. Marcus Stoinis also provided breakthroughs at crucial junctures in the middle overs to peg back SRH’s chase. In the end, SRH fell short by 17 runs even after valiant efforts by Kane Williamson and Abdul Samad. Kagiso Rabada took 4 while Marcus Stoinis rounded-off a brilliant day by picking up 3 wickets.
