Spared of their bowling misery after 20 overs, MI came to bat with Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock.
"After the World Cup, my cricketing career is ending", Malinga said after his side lost the second Twenty20 worldwide against South Africa by 16 runs. The faith that Mumbai showed in the swashbuckling Punjab batsman was partially redeemed when the veteran blazed a 35-balls 53 in their opening IPL-12 tie against Delhi Capitals. The Captain of Mumbai Indians Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bowl first in order to chase in the but the Capitals squad set the huge target of 213 on board which made it hard for MI to chase. For Mumbai, Mitchell McClenaghan was the pick of the bowlers, picking up 3 wickets.
Alongwith Pant, Colin Ingram too contributed and scored 47 runs in 32 balls with 7 fours and one six, while Dhawan scored 43 runs in 36 balls with 4 fours and one six. This brought Rishabh Pant to the crease and the southpaw needed just five balls to settle in before going for his big shots.
As soon as Pant arrived in the middle, the young stumper took every bowler to the cleaners to blast an unbeaten 78 off just 27 deliveries with the help of seven boundaries and as many hits into the stands. But this time, his knock ensured that Delhi beat Mumbai in their first match of the season and Pant said that it felt good to contribute to a winning cause.

Delhi were at a decent position of 112/3 when Rishabh Pant walked out to bat in the 14 over. Always a great feeling when you score runs and the team wins.
Suryakumar Yadav pushed the 1 ball of the 6 over towards mid-off and set off for a quick single.
A look at Pant's track record indicates that he has had problems against slow bowlers and Dhoni, who has seen enough of the youngster, will love to exploit the chinks in his armoury. "After the World Cup, my cricketing profession is finishing", he said after the match. He faced a few dot balls early on and then suddenly his strike rate was 250.
