On Saturday, Mumbai Indians‘ pace bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah continued his form with another deadly spell against Delhi Capitals. The right-arm pacer looked at his usual best as he returned with three wickets in his account alongside an economical spell.
Mumbai Indians are currently playing their last league game of the season as they are squaring off against Delhi Capitals in the 69th match of the Indian Premier League 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Mumbai Indians’ skipper Rohit Sharma won the vital coin flip and chose to bowl first. Daniel Sams backed his skipper’s decision by clinching David Warner early in the innings. Soon, Jasprit Bumrah also joined the party by picking up the wickets of Mitchell Marsh and Prithvi Shaw.
After losing four wickets inside 9 overs, Delhi Capitals were going nowhere at that point in time. However, the skipper Rishabh Pant and Rovman Powell added 75 runs off 44 deliveries to take the Delhi-based franchise out of the trouble.

Once Rishabh Pant got out in the 16th over, the onus fell upon Rovman Powell to provide the finishing impetus for Delhi Capitals. However, the world’s best death bowler Jasprit Bumrah didn’t allow the West Indian to free his arms.
On the 2nd delivery of the 19th over, Bumrah delivered a pinpoint yorker on the off stump. Powell tried to sit down and drag the ball towards the leg side but the ball sneaked underneath the bat to knock the stumps over.
