Spurred by an outrageous unbeaten 78 off 27 balls by Rishabh Pant, the Delhi franchise began their 2019 Indian T20 League campaign on a bruising note, beating hosts Mumbai by 37 runs to make it a hat-trick of wins over them.

Pant’s innings contained seven fours and seven sixes and helped Delhi score 88 off their last seven overs to take them to 213/6.

Chasing 214, Mumbai lost wickets to dent their reply and only Yuvraj Singh managed to get to 50.
