Rishabh Pant’s ballistic knock off 78 runs powered Delhi Capitals total over 200, giving Mumbai Indians a mammoth target of 214 which was out of men-in-blue’s reach in more ways than one. In the end, it was the Capitals, who managed to come out trumps by 38 runs courtesy of a resounding all-round show at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Moreover, Shreyas Iyer and Co also moved to the top of the points table. LIVE SCORECARD

WICKET: Dhawan just couldn't time that ball. Tried to clear the mid-wicket fielder, but straight into the hands of Suryakumar Yadav.

WICKET: Ben Cutting picks his first wicket. Ingram departs after a well-made 47.

The way Salam is bowling here, he is surely looking a great prospect for Mumbai Indians here. Super Stuff!
The powerplay has been slightly tilted in Mumbai Indians favour as they are able to pick two wickets and keep Shikhar Dhawan quiet. This remains to be seen what will be Delhi's approach from here on. After 6 overs, it's 45/2 and it's STRATEGIC TIMEOUT!
Bumrah gave just three runs in his first over. Absolute class. After first over, it's 36/2 and Mumbai is on top here.
WICKET: Shreyas Iyer smashed six of the last ball, and tried to emulate the shot on the very next ball but couldn't time it to perfection. Sensational catch by Pollard to send him back.
Another NO BALL. Salam under-pressure or nervous or both?
So, Delhi Capitals have lost their first wicket in the form of Prithvi Shaw. The onus is now on skipper Shreyas Iyer, who joins Shikhar Dhawan in the middle. After 2 overs, it's 11/1.
WICKET: First wicket for Mumbai Indians. Shaw tried to play away from his body and gets a slight nip, through to the keeper.
Good start from Salam, just 6 came off the first over.
Dhawan pulls the short ball went straight to the fielder but NOT OUT. Thank you, free hit.
Salam starts his IPL career with a no-ball. FREE HIT for Shikhar Dhawan to start off his Delhi Capitals' career!
Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw will start for Delhi Capitals.
The batsmen are out in the middle and Salam is ready to bowl the first over. HERE WE GO!!
