Mumbai Indians (MI) opener Ishan Kishan was on fire early on during the run chase against the Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday.
Batting first, DC wobbled its way to 159 in 20 overs after being down to 50/4 at one stage. Rishabh Pant and Rovman Powell built the partnership which brought the team back into the game.
Rohit Sharma struggled against Khaleel Ahmed in the run chase, even missing all six deliveries of an over against the left-armer. However, Kishan at the other end seemed to have found his rhythm.
He took on Anrich Nortje, against whom he has an excellent record. He smashed 14 runs in the over and his girlfriend, Aditi Hundia, was seen cheering in the stands for the left-handed wicket-keeper batter.
MI playing XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Tilak Varma, Ramandeep Singh, Tim David, Daniel Sams, Hrithik Shokeen, Riley Meredith, Jasprit Bumrah, Mayank Markande
DC playing XI: Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Sarfaraz Khan, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed
