IPL 2022 [Twitter reactions]: Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel guide Delhi Capitals to a 4 wicket win over Mumbai Indians

Delhi Capitals (DC) registered an important win over Mumbai Indians (MI) in their first match of IPL 2022 on Sunday at the Brabourne Stadium.

All-rounders Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel played a crucial role in DC’s hard-fought victory as the duo added an unbeaten 75-run partnership for the seventh wicket. While Axar scored an unbeaten 38 off 17, Lalit remained not out on 48 (38), with Delhi winning the game in 18.4 overs.

Earlier, after being put to bat first, MI started pretty well. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan stitched a 67-run stand for the opening wicket. DC, meanwhile, managed to keep things in check and kept on picking wickets at regular intervals.

However, the fall of wickets did not deter Kishan at the other end as he continued to score runs, hitting the odd boundaries. He returned unbeaten on 81 as MI managed to post a competitive total of 177/5 in their 20 overs. For DC, Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets for 18 runs.
