Toss Delhi Daredevils chose to bowl v Mumbai Indians
Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details
Gautam Gambhir, the Delhi Daredevils captain, called right and, in keeping with the dominant blueprint for success this season, opted to chase against Mumbai Indians in searing conditions at the Wankhade Stadium. Jason Roy made his Daredevils debut, replacing Colin Munro. There was no place for Chris Morris either; he made way for Daniel Christian.
Rohit Sharma, the home team captain, wasn’t too fussed about batting first, and made two changes to his XI. Akila Dananjaya was handed an IPL debut, coming in for Ben Cutting, who was Mumbai’s most expensive bowler in their narrow defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad. Hardik Pandya, who had twisted his ankle in the tournament opener against Chennai Super Kings, reclaimed his regular spot at the expense of Pradeep Sangwan.
The pitch had a good smattering of grass that had been rolled in, and both captains expected it to be good for batting. Both teams are searching for their first win of the competition, having lost both their respective games so far.
