The day began with MI winning the toss and opting to field first. Setting the stage for DC’s batsmen to showcase their prowess.

“We’re going to field first. The ground is small so It’s better to bat second on a smaller ground. Every match is a new match, we make sure we are not out.
We keep fighting and keep coming hard in each game. That is the brand of Cricket we want to play and put the best foot forward. The mood is fine, happy chats, all is well. Wood comes in for Coetzee.”

Hardik Pandya, MI Skipper

“We were looking to bat first anyway. I think it will get slower in the second innings. It has been amazing, we’re getting the kind of wickets we want. As a team, we have to play well and we have been.
This is something we talked about – how to control the innings. Bowling with the new ball and bowling at the death is difficult, one over here or there is making all the difference. Team for us, Prithvi Shaw misses out and Kumar Kushagra comes in.”
