Mumbai Indians moved on to the 2nd place in the table following their thumping win over the Delhi Capitals. The Delhi franchise were placed at the 2nd position in the table prior to this game. This victory now has improved the MI’s NRR and the narrowed down the gap between and the top of CSK who won seven in nine. A spirited bowling performance led by Rahul Chahar helped the MI team to restrict DC to just 128/9 after they posted 168/5 in their 20 overs.

Here are the lesser known stats that were recorded during the game between MI and DD:

An IPL record for Dhawan:

Shikhar Dhawan now holds the record for hitting the most number of fours in the history of IPL. The Delhi Capitals’ opener hit as many as 495 fours in all editions of the IPL including five in this game. With the 3rd four, Dhawan went past Gautam Gambhir’s 492 fours in the league. Dhawan needs five more fours for becoming the first player to hit 500 fours in the IPL.


Mishra gets Rohit again:

Rohit Sharma now has been dismissed on six instances in the IPL by Amit Mishra. The leg-spinner only conceded 80 runs in 85 balls to Rohit in the IPL thus far. In all Twenty20s, the Delhi bowler dismissed the Mumbaikar on seven instances. Mishra got better off Rohit during a Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament game way back in 2007.

The seven dismissals of Rohit to Mishra in the Twenty20 cricket are the joint-most times an Indian bowler dismissing an Indian batsman in this format. Former Indian pacer Zaheer Khan dismissed the current CSK captain on as many as seven instances.


A rare new ball spell for Hardik:

Not often Hardik Pandya gets to bowl in the powerplay during the IPL but he ended up delivering the first over of the Delhi Capitals’ innings on Thursday. In the absence of Jason Behrendroff, MI tried to sneak in an over of Pandya which didn’t cost them much. This was only the 4th time Hardik bowled the first over of an IPL inning.

In the 2017 season, Pandya bowled the first over of Kings XI Punjab’s innings twice in two games where he conceded 8 and 11 runs respectively. Later, he bowled during the last season’s game against the Delhi Capitals/Daredevils in Mumbai. He was taken for 13 runs in that over he bowled.
