After losing the toss at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Rishav Pant’s team scored 147 runs for the loss of 8 wickets. In other words, in order to win, Mostafiz has to do 148.
Delhi Capitals were batting from the beginning. Jaydev Unadkat’s great bowling in the first 6 overs of the power play, they could lose 3 wickets for only 36 runs.
Unadkat took all three wickets. The left-arm pacer did not allow Prithvi Shaw (2), Shikhar Dhawan (9), and Ajinkya Rahane (8) to touch the tenth wicket. Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson attacked Mostafizur Rahman in the seventh over of the innings. Tiger pacer also put a smile on the captain’s face in the first over.
Mostafiz gave a run in the first ball of that over. Foolish Marcus Stoinis (0) in the fifth delivery with a great cut. Unable to understand the speed of the ball, the Australian batsman of Delhi allowed him to get the bat. Jos Butler ran the ball floating in the sky and palpated it. Fitz gave only one run in that over.
After losing 4 wickets for 37 runs, captain Rishav Pant tried to pull the team out. Meanwhile, Samson attacked Mostafiz again in the 12th over. At the end of this over, Pant completed his fifty by hitting the boundary. Mostafiz spent 8 runs.
Pant-Lalit’s 51-run stand for the fifth wicket broke in the next over. Pant was run out for 51 off 32 balls with nine boundaries.
Delhi, which lost 6 wickets for 100 runs, could not cope with that push. In the 17th over, Mostafiz got the ball again and spent 8 runs. In the 19th over, he got his second wicket.
This time he digested the boundary with the first ball. The next ball came back great. Tom Quran (21 off 12 balls) was bowled by the Bangladeshi cutter master in a great delivery.
Delhi Capitals lost another wicket at the end of Mostafiz’s over. This time Ravichandran Ashwin was run out for two runs. As a result, the struggling Delhi Capitals finally stopped for 147 runs for 6 wickets.
Mostafiz, who gave only 16 runs in the first three overs, was a little lazy in his last over. But there is no way to call it too bad in Death’s bowling. He took a wicket after spending 12 runs, there was also a runout.
Mostafiz took 2 wickets with 29 runs in 4 overs. Besides, Unadkat, who fired with the ball in the beginning, spent 15 runs to pick up 3 wickets in 4 overs.
