Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals – Highlights & Stats

first_imgDespite a valiant knock of 65 from 46 balls by Marcus Stoinis, Bumrah – who recorded his best T20 figures of 4-14 – returned to remove him, and with it any lingering doubts about the outcome.SCORECARDThe only downside for the defending champions was a groin strain that forced Boult (2-9) off the field after bowling just two overs, making him doubtful for Tuesday’s final in Abu Dhabi.- Advertisement – Having initially taken a back seat, Suryakumar then weighed in, pulling Anrich Nortje for two fours and slamming Ashwin for a big six – but, when De Kock attempted to follow suit, he skied into the waiting hands of Dhawan at long off.Mumbai suddenly found themselves faltering at 101-4 when Suryakumar – having just reached his half-century – hooked Nortje into the hands of long leg and Kieron Pollard (0) fell to an excellent diving catch by Kagiso Rabada.Stoinis (1-5) made further inroads with his first ball, having Krunal Pandya (13) caught on the boundary, but Ishan Kishan (55 not out from 30) and Hardik Pandya exploded into life as they amassed 78 from the last five overs.Pandya (37no from 14) pressed down hard on the accelerator, thrashing successive sixes off Rabada and then inflicting the same punishment on Nortje before Kishan punched another maximum to reach his half-century off the last ball of the innings and lift Mumbai to 200-5.Surpassing that total always looked likely to be a steep task for the Capitals – but the first eight deliveries of their reply rendered it virtually impossible.Shaw was the first to go, caught behind off Boult’s cutter before the New Zealander moved one back to trap Rahane leg before and then Bumrah sent Dhawan on his way with an unplayable yorker.Delhi skipper Shreyas Iyer (12) did his best to retrieve the situation with three boundaries – but he became Bumrah’s second victim when he attempted a fourth and drilled it hard into the hands of Rohit at cover.However, Stoinis made good progress and he found a strong ally in Axar Patel, with the pair putting on 71 from 44 balls to give Delhi a glimmer of hope before Bumrah extinguished it once and for all.The Mumbai paceman bowled Stoinis with a delivery that kept low, adding his fourth wicket by having Sams caught behind later in the over – and, despite Patel’s effort of 42 from 33 balls, the Capitals fell well short at 143-8. Delhi will get another opportunity to face Mumbai in the final if they can overcome the winner of Friday’s eliminator between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Cricket.Wily spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (3-29) struck an early blow after Delhi had put the champions in to bat, trapping Rohit Sharma lbw on the back foot for a first-ball duck.At the other end, Quinton de Kock (40 from 25) set off like a train, hammering three crisp boundaries off Daniel Sams’ first over as he and Suryakumar Yadav (51 from 38) added 62 from 37 deliveries.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult wrecked Delhi Capitals’ top order with a devastating spell of bowling to book Mumbai Indians’ place in the IPL final with a 57-run victory.Mumbai had rested the seam pair for their final group game and they returned to the side in style, removing all of Delhi’s top three – Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan – for ducks inside eight balls.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Women of Troy overwhelm Long Beach

first_imgThe No. 1 USC women’s water polo team takes great pride in its defense, but Thursday’s 18-4 thrashing of unranked Long Beach State at McDonald’s Swim Stadium was a celebration of the Women of Troy’s offensive prowess.Quick fire · Senior utility Forel Davies had a hat trick by the time the first period ended on Thursday and finished the first half with five goals. – Gary Fung | Daily Trojan Facing Long Beach State for the third time this season, the Women of Troy (13-1, 2-0 MPSF) overpowered the helpless 49ers (7-13) on the offensive end of the pool. Led by senior utility Forel Davies, who scored six, USC totaled 10 scores in just the first 12 minutes of the contest. And as usual, USC coach Jovan Vavic was quick to credit the defense for the success.“Our defense was very good,” Vavic said. “We played very disciplined defense, we showed hands, and we didn’t commit any silly ejections. And then, we were able to convert our shots. Pretty simple.”But it was Davies who got the team on track in the early minutes. The senior, whose previous career high for single-game goals stood at three, recorded a hat trick within the first quarter alone to help ignite the rest of the offense.“Lately, I’ve been trying to play the game more than anything else,” Davies said. “I’m really just focusing on having fun and being patient. That really helped to calm me down and not be jittery early on.”But for USC, it wasn’t a one-woman show that powered them to a victory. In addition to Davies’ six goals, eight other players found a way to get on the scoreboard, including junior driver Joelle Bekhazi, who also netted a hat trick, including two in the second half.“I know this is cliché, but teamwork was a big part of the win,” Davies said. “We just try on focusing on setting each other up and being positive and happy when other people score.”Even with a lead in the early parts of the game, the Women of Troy refused to be complacent as the game wore on, scoring eight second-half goals to cap an impressive outing.“We stayed focused,” said Vavic on his team’s consistency throughout all four quarters. “The last couple of games, we didn’t play that great in the fourth quarter. So this was just a better performance throughout the entire game.”Balance remained one of the team’s strong suits against the 49ers, as the defense was seemingly as stifling as the offense was proficient. Facing an aggressive front, Long Beach State was unable to get on the scoreboard until the latter minutes of the first half when a Krizia Cerda shot snuck past USC senior goalie Tumua Amae.But it wouldn’t be until midway through the fourth quarter the 49ers would score again on Amae, who finished with 13 total saves.“We were focused, but [Long Beach State] is still a very young team,” Vavic said. “That youth showed today.”Even while notching yet another conference victory, the Women of Troy won’t be getting much rest anytime soon, as they are scheduled to face No. 14 San Diego State on Saturday at home. A win would mark their 12th straight in the season as they head toward the heart of Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play.San Diego State (16-10, 0-4) is coming off a disappointing loss to Hawai’i in which utility Amber Pezzolla contributed a hat trick, but the Aztecs were unable to muster enough to hang with the Rainbow Wahine.Pezzolla is the Aztec’s leading scorer with 42 goals on the season, and also leads the team in assists.Containing Pezzolla and getting past goalie Kelly Campoli will be key to any success the Women of Troy hope to have against the Aztecs.last_img read more
