Mumbai Indians on the other started off with a bang, but kept losing crucial wickets at regular intervals. Only Yuvraj Singh and Krunal Pandya were the shining spots of the match. After a while, Yuvraj Singh scored his maiden half century in the 12th edition of the IPL, but the total was beyond the reach.
In the end, Mumbai Indians found itself on the losing end and was bundled out for 177 runs in 20 overs. Delhi Capitals played like a champion throughout the match and ended up being the deserved champions.
