Chasing a 157-run target, skipper-cum-opener Rohit Sharma played a captain's knock of 68 besides sharing over 40-run partnership each with Quinton de Kock (20), Suryakumar Yadav (19) and Ishan Kishan (33 not out) to help Mumbai cross the mark in 18.4 overs. First-time finalist Delhi lost openers Marcus Stoinis (0) and Shikhar Dhawan (15) and first-drop Ajinkya Rahane (2) inside just 22 runs, during their innings. Meanwhile, captain and skipper Shreyas Iyer (65) then led from the front by not only notching up a half-century but also stitching a crucial stand of 96 runs with wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant (56) for the fourth wicket to power Delhi to a decent total of 156/7.
Interestingly, on the other hand, at the post-match presentation ceremony, Rohit Sharma was asked about what kind of captain he is. Replying to the same, Sharma replied, "I'm not someone who'll run with a stick behind someone. The only way you can do it is by giving them confidence. So you have to strike that right balance".
