Highlights - Delhi Capitals opened with IPL match win

Watch the highlights of Delhi Capitals opened with IPL match win - VIVO IPL Tournament 3rd T20 cricket match played between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals at Mumbai in 2019 - DC won by 37-runs.

Delhi Capitals opened their account of IPL 2019 campaign with a 37-run victory against three-time champions Team Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Chasing a mammoth total of 214 runs for victory, the home side were off to a steady start as Skipper Rohit Sharma and left-hander Quinton de Kock added 33 runs for the first wicket.

Krunal Pandya's cameo 32 off 15 (5 fours, 1 six) gave MI some chance but following his dismissal, it was very difficult for lone warrior Yuvraj Singh to chase down the huge total.

Yuvraj's 53 comes from 35 deliveries including 5 fours and 3 sixes in his debut match for Mumbai Indians weren't enough as the home side lost by 37 runs.
