IPL 2022, MI vs DC: Axar, Lalit snatch victory from jaws of defeat as Delhi beat Mumbai by 4 wickets

Lalit Yadav played the innings of his life with an unbeaten 48 while Axar Patel smashed 38 not out off just 17 balls as a depleted Delhi Capitals started their IPL campaign with a stunning four-wicket win over Mumbai Indians here on Sunday.

Chasing a challenging 178, Delhi were down 72 for 5 inside 10 overs but the lesser-known Delhi all-rounder Yadav stayed calm during his 38-ball unbeaten knock to take his side home.

India all-rounder Patel chipped in with a quick fire 17-ball 38 not out as DC overhauled the target with 10 balls to spare.

Yadav smashed four boundaries and two sixes, while Patel had two hours and three maximums as the duo stitched a match-winning 75-run partnership from 30 balls for the seventh wicket.

After an ordinary day with the ball (4-0-40-0), Patel kept his best for the run chase after Delhi lost their key batters — Prithvi Shaw (38), Rishabh Pant (1), Rovman Powell (0) — cheaply.

Mumbai looked ordinary in their pace attack with Jasprit Bumrah returning wicketless (3.

2-0-43-0).
