In Qualifier 1 of Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL 2020), Mumbai Indians (MI) carried out a clinical decimation of Delhi Capitals (DC) by 57 runs in the first qualifier, to set sights on their fifth Indian Premier League title.

Surya Kumar Yadav (51 off 38 balls) laid the platform on which Ishan Kishan (55 not out) and Hardik Pandya (37 no off 14 balls) cashed in to take their team to 200 for 5.

The pressure of scoreboard was writ large on a wobbly Capitals top-order with Trent Boult (2/9 in 2 overs) and Jasprit Bumrah (4/14 in 4 overs) producing a 'Test match opening spell" to eventually blow out the opposition for 143 for 8.

Delhi will however get a second shot at glory when they meet winner of the Eliminator between RCB and Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday in the second qualifier.

If there was something called putting up a team effort, then the defending champions did that to the 'T' on Thursday.

Prithvi Shaw (0) waited for an inswinger which never came and instead edged a Boult delivery that was delivered with angled seam. Ajinkya Rahane (0) expected an outswinger but got a "Boult special" in-dipper that had him plumb in-front.

The in-form Shikhar Dhawan (0) before he could settle down got a toe-crusher from Jasprit Bumrah that messed with his middle-stump.

It was 0/3 in 8 balls and there was nothing left in the match. Shreyas Iyer was snapped at cover off Bumrah and Rishabh Pant as usual slog swept a ball from Krunal Pandya on the imaginary fifth off-stump to be holed out in the deep as Capitals were half the side back in the dug-out for 41.

This is the sixth time that the Rohit Sharma-led franchise has reached the summit clash.

Seeing 'Murphy's Law' (If something can go wrong, it will) hit Delhi Capitals is sure to invoke a sense of deja vu for those who had witnessed their 2012 season.

In the second Qualifier against Chennai Super Kings, Delhi (Daredevils back then) had dropped Morne Morkel and played an off-spinner called Sunny Gupta, who was hammered for 20 in his first over and they were routed.

On Thursday, with Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje in his corner, Iyer decided to start with inexperienced left-arm seamer Daniel Sams, who instanty taken apart by Quinton de Kock.

Capitals lost the momentum and never got it back through the entire duration of the match.

It was Suryakumar's near flawless half-century complemented by Hardik Pandya's death-over fireworks that saw Mumbai Indians put up an above-par total.

While Ravichandran Ashwin (3/29 in 4 overs) shone brightly with his cerebral bowling, Shreyas Iyer's captaincy left a lot to be desired due to negative tactics as far as his pace department was concerned.

Starting with left-arm seam of Sams (0/44 in 4 overs) badly backfired and even worse was Rabada (0/4 in 4 overs) and Nortje (1/50 in 4 overs) also had a forgettable day at the office.

De Kock and Surya were in full flow as the boundaries and sixes continued to flow from their blades during the 62-run stand in only 6.1 overs.

While De Kock was severe on anything bowled short or on his legs, Surya's flowing drives off spin and pace were a treat for the eyes.

in the end, it was big-hitting exhibition from Hardik as he kept his shape nicely to hammer Rabada and Nortje out of the park.

Got a little bit of grass on it which should offer a little bit of pace and bounce. It actually aids the batting side as well and later in the night when dew starts to form then it will aid the batting side as well. 20 of the last 26 games have been won by the team batting second", reckon Simon Doull and Pommie Mbangwa during pitch report.

Dhawan on Shaw’s form

Talking about Prithvi Shaw’s form, Dhawan said the youngster timed the ball nicely and needed to stay calm and positive as everyone goes through a rough patch.

Dhawan on Rohit Sharma’s form after injury

Asked if there would be a psychological advantage, considering Rohit Sharma was returning from an injury, Dhawan said DC would look to gain from that as "Rohit might not be in good touch after injury".

 

IPL 2020 playoffs live: MI-DC rivalry

Talking about the MI-DC rivalry in Indian Premier League, Dhawan said he did not believe that Mumbai had an upper hand. He further said that Delhi had also performed well in all the three departments -- batting, bowling, and fielding – during the league stages of IPL 2020.
 
However, the stats are not in favour of Delhi Capitals, given the Shreyas Iyer-led side has lost both its league games against Mumbai Indians this season.
 
"There is nothing like that (MI having an upper hand); we don't think that way. We came as a strong side too and we played good cricket in all three departments. We will stick to the plans and play accordingly," Dhawan said during a virtual press conference ahead of the MI vs DC Qualifier 1.

IPL 2020 playoffs: MI vs DC toss prediction

Delhi Capitals has failed to win two of its league matches against Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020. However, Delhi batters were able to put up a good show while chasing as compared to batting first. So, Delhi Capitals would look to bowl first after winning the toss

Bowlers key for Delhi Capitals' success

The inconsistency in the batting lineup has often seeped into their otherwise strong bowling attack. Kagiso Rabada (25 wickets) and compatriot Anrich Nortje (19 wickets) will again be DC's go-to men. Like Bumrah and Boult, the South African pace duo would also eye support from experienced Ravichandran Ashwin (10 wickets) and Axar Patel (8 wickets) to further reinforce their bowling attack.
 
 

Batting woes for Delhi Capitals

DC has been plagued with inconsistency in their batting lineup which they will have to guard themselves against as they face two of the most lethal new ball bowlers in the world. Opener Prithvi Shaw (228 runs) has struggled to find form since his rapid start to the season and the same can be said about Rishabh Pant (282 runs) since he made his comeback from injury. Captain Shreyas Iyer (421 runs) will have to lay the foundation of something challenging on board.
 


Key batsmen for Delhi Capitals

MI have put up all-round performances in the batting line-up, evidenced by the fact that only Quinton de Kock (443 runs from 14 games) features in the top 10 of the highest run scorers.

And yet, MI have comfortably managed to put big totals on board. They were, however, at the receiving end in their last league match against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Tuesday. They had rested ace fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah (23 wickets) and Trent Boult (20) which resulted in MI failing to take a single wicket against SRH.

Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya will look to build on the momentum down the order.

MI squad for IPL 2020

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (captain), Aditya Tare, Anmol preet Singh, Anukul Roy, Chris Lynn, Dhawal Kulkarni, Digvijay Deshmukh, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, James Pattison, Jasprit Bumrah, Jayant Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mohsin Khan, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Prince Balwant Rai, Quinton De Kock, Rahul Chahar, Saurabh Tiwary, Sherfane Rutherford, Suryakumar Yadav, Trent Boult

IPL 2020, Qualifier 1: Mumbai India vs Delhi Capitals

Reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI) will face Delhi Capitals (DC), looking to shake off the ghosts that haunted them in the closing stages of the league phase, in the first Qualifier of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Dubai International stadium.
 
The team that lose the match will get a lifeline, and both sides will be looking to avoid playing the extra match.
 
MI have always been a strong contender for the title, and this season is no different. Ticking all the boxes so far, the Rohit Sharma-led side are clear favourites on Thursday.
 
MI have put up all-round performances in the batting line-up, evidenced by the fact that only Quinton de Kock (443 runs from 14 games) features in the top 10 of the highest run scorers.
 
And yet, MI have comfortably managed to put big totals on board. They were, however, at the receiving end in their last league match against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Tuesday. They had rested ace fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah (23 wickets) and Trent Boult (20) which resulted in MI failing to take a single wicket against SRH.
 
The match would hence be seen as a one-off for MI and the threat of Bumrah and Boult tearing into the DC top order, which has looked fragile in their final league matches.
