SRH win today to make it into the final 4, having won 4 out of 5 of their last 5 matches. MI v DC, loser plays the winner of SRH v RCB, winner of that goes into the final against the winner of the 1st game.

Dream start for them. DC have a partnership with Stoinis and Axar and some hope of pulling off a miracle and he brings back Bumrah to finish that. Too strong in the batting too. No right getting to 200 today. Hardik is a hell of a no. 7 batsman to have.

Yep, Not often you see an ipl game or indeed any T20 game won by 57 runs too...

The average first innings score at Dubai is 144... Mumbai 56 runs over that average. Delhi weren’t great but would have needed to chase down the 12th highest ever IPL total....

Comment of the day, I didn't watch, but was following text commentary. Cricbuzz. At 0/3 off 1.2 overs chasing 201, they said, "This may have tilted in favour of the Mumbai Indians" may have tilted in favour of mind.

DC get another chance but have big problems in the batting. Shaw and Pant look so low in confidence. Shreyas Iyer the captain isn't getting runs either. Bowling is still strong even though Rabada is gone off the boil a bit. No wickets again today.

Fancy Sunrisers tomorrow. Peaking at the right time, the opposite of DC. Can't write off a team with Kohli and AB I suppose.

Anyone watching the final? DC fighting back well after MI got off to another brilliant start thanks to Trent Boult. Pant and Shreyas Iyer turning their form around at the right time.

Watching it OK, Delhi just finished on 156, looks a little bit short, they didn't start well or finish well, 96 for the 4th wicket, but not much else.

Mumbai way too strong. They have the best Indian players of all the sides, Bumrah, Rohit, Hardik and his brother, Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav. What a classy batsman he is by the way yet can't get in the India squad. Not so reliant on the overseas players but they are brilliant too, de Kock, Pollard and Boult all world class.

Wasn't much of a final. Delhi are were goosed after the early wickets. I think the tournament this year lost a bit of momentum towards the end. You're definitely missing the crowds for the big games at the end.

Too many one sided games in the latter half of the group stage. Started off so well, tight finishes, superovers to big swings in performance every game. Crowds a factor no doubt and also players cooped up in the bubble too long. India off the Australia now so the players get no respite from it. First ODI is the 27th.
