All-round effort helps Delhi beat Mumbai by 37 runs

India's wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has given enough proof of why he should be on the World Cup-bound plane to England as he smashed 78 runs off 27 balls to power Delhi to a 37-run win over Mumbai in their opener match of Indian Premier League 2019 on Sunday. It is understood that during a pre-tournament briefing with physiotherapists from all eight teams, the BCCI medical team had suggested resting key pacers if a team had to play back-to-back away games.

As many as 3 uncapped players took the field during the game and here is a recap of their performance.

"His recovery is on track and fortunately no sign on stress", a statement from Mumbai said. Over the years I've seen him mature a lot.

Zaheer Khan, Mumbai Indians' Director of Cricket Operations, said: "Even Rohit Sharma is impressed with Rasikh".

But not only MI management but BCCI and cricket fans will have fingers crossed on the fitness of Bumrah who is the strike bowler not only for his franchise but India as well.

Chasing a target of 214 runs, Mumbai Indians team failed to build good partnerships. However, Chennai Super Kings will be a different challenge for the Capitals, who don't have an enviable record against Dhoni's men at their home ground.

Delhi bowlers bowled well to hurt MI.

"He (Pant) had an outstanding season previous year as well. The wicket was more of 180-190 wicket, 215 (213) was quite a match-winning score", he said. He is playing well in Test matches as well. The left-handed batsman said that Pant is an outstanding talent, who needs to be groomed and has the potential to be the next big thing in Indian cricket. And we will be assessing the situation tomorrow as well.

Players rushed to check on him as he walked off the field with enormous pain.

"After the World Cup, my cricketing career is ending", Malinga said after his side lost the second Twenty20 global against South Africa by 16 runs. We were pretty much in the game in the first 10 overs when we were bowling, but the way Rishabh batted, you've got to give him credit.
