After winning the toss, Delhi Captains new rookie captain Rishabh Pant opted to bowl first due to the due factor on the ground. 

Chennai Super Kings lost their first wicket of Faf du Plessis 0(3) in the 2nd over to Avesh Khan. Then Immediately, Ruturaj Gaikwad 5(8) gave a catch to Shikar Dhawan in the Chris Woakes over. 

After these two back to back wickets, Moeen Ali and Suresh Raina built a 53 run partnership in 38 balls with regular boundaries. After a long time, it's good to see Suresh Raina hitting sixes in the stadium. He missed the last season of IPL due to personal reasons.

This partnership is broke by the veteran Indian spinner R Ashwin in the 9th over. Moeen Ali 36(24) gave a catch to Shikar Dhawan at the third man, trying to sweep the ball offside, after hitting two consecutive sixes.

Then Ambati Rayudu joins the party with Suresh Raina, they both too made a 63 runs partnership in 33 balls. When they are batting, boundaries rained in the Wankhede Stadium. This rain didn't last too long. 

At the end of the 14th over, Ambati Rayudu 23(16) gave a catch to Shikar Dhawan in Tom Curran's over. In the Anvesh Khan's over, due to a miscommunication and bowlers fault, Suresh Raina 54(36) got runout.

Immediately after that, the captain of CSK M S Dhoni got out in the Anvesh Khan's over. After seeing MS Dhoni got out, my heart just skipped a beat. That was his 4th duck out in the Indian Premier League.

Then Curran brothers fought each other but, the younger brother Sam Curran won it by hitting his brother over to the boundaries with the help of R Jadeja.

At the end of the first Innings, CSK made 188 runs in 20 overs by losing 7 wickets.

Second Innings

Prithvi Shaw and Shikar Dhawan opened the innings for the Delhi Capitals and made a huge partnership of 138 runs in 88 balls. The CSK fielders dropped the Prithvi Shaws's catch twice in the match.

They both punished the CSK bowlers with regular boundaries, they make sure they had at least two boundaries in an over, for 10 overs. They maintained 10 runs in an over till they are back to the pavilion.

By the time Dwayne Bravo took the wicket of Prithvi Shaw 72(38), it's too late to stop Delhi from capitals scoring runs. After some time, Shikar 85 (54) gave his wicket to S Thakur.

Pant, Marcus Stoinis and Shimron Hetmyer completed the match by scoring the few runs left by the openers. At last, the rookie captain won the match for his team by hitting a four.

Important moments of MI vs RCB Match 1

Here are some important moments in the first match of the Indian Premier League between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Harshal Patel's last over

First, let us talk about Harshal Patel, A right-arm seamer with a big outswinger from Gujarat who just took control of the death overs yesterday with his balls. In his last over, he took 4 wickets, including a run out in the last ball.

In the last four overs of Mumbai Indians innings, the team managed to score only 32 runs and lost 6 wickets. The usual Mumbai Indians used score no less than 60-70 runs in the death overs.

But this time the team found it hard even to rotate the strike. The death overs specialist batsman from the Mumbai Indians Keiron Pollard, Hardik Pandya find it hard to connect the balls. Their combined score is just 20 (19)

Coming to the last over, Mumbai Indians messed up it big time with no runs scored in this over. The star of this Innings is Harshal Patel with his superb bowling.

Rohit Sharma run out

At the end of the 4th over Rohit Sharma got out with a huge mixup from the striker Chris Lynn. After a good googly from the Y Chahal, the striker Chris Lynn made a call to the non-striker Rohit Sharma to run. 

But in the midway, Lynn changed his decision and returned back as the ball didn't pass the inner circle.
In this process, Rohit Sharma got out 19(15). You can see the frustration of Rohit Sharma after he got out. Quinton de Kock missing from the game is really bad luck for Rohit Sharma.

Chris Lynn's Knock

After the bad call, Chris Lynn 49(35) really played a good knock with a little help from Suryakumar Yadav 31 (23). They both build a good partnership of 70 runs in 44 balls.

Chris hit 4x4's and 3x6's as an opener for Mumbai Indians before giving his wicket to Washington Sundar. By the end of the innings, Mumbai Indians scored 159/9 by messing the last over.

Marco Jansen 15th over

With Virat Kohli, Washington Sundar opened the second innings. In just a few balls, Kurnal Pandya got the first wicket of W Sundar 10 (16) and then after a short cameo Rajat Patidar got out 8(8). Then Glenn Maxwell came to the crease. They both build a good partnership of 52 runs in 42 balls.

Glenn is sending the ball to boundaries in all directions. There is a good cop and bad cop situation on the ground. Maxi is hitting and Kohli is rotating the strike.

Virat departed in the Bumrah 13th over for LBW. Then in the Marco Jansen 15th over, he departs Glenn Maxwell and the Shabaz Ahmed in the same over.

AB de Villier Superb Knock

Ab de Villiers came in the middle order than in the top order. That changed in the batting lineup is really thoughtful as the young batsmen in the top order of the RCB line failed drastically.

Once he came into the field, he started swinging the bat. Eventhough he cost a wicket for a rookie batsman, he did what has to be done at that moment. 

The non-strikers didn't hold their wicket when the AB de Villiers is batting. Mumbai Indians targeted the non-strikers instead of AB. This plan of action really changed his perspective and knocked the ball hard.

In the last moment when he tried to get two runs, he got run out due to a silly mistake. Kurnal Pandya didn't waste any time throwing the ball to the wicket-keeper.

After Mumbai Indians set a total of 159 runs on the scoreboard, Virat Kohli opened the second innings along with Washington Sundar. In 5th over, Washington Sundar 10 (16) was caught by Chris Lynn in the Kurnal Pandya's over.

Then the RCB rookie Patidar back to the pavilion after a short cameo in the Trent Boult's over. Then came the 'X' factor, Glenn Maxwell, he and Virat Kohli build a good partnership of 52 runs in 42 balls. I thought they both will complete the match in just 15 overs.

Then in the 13th over, Burmarh got Virat Kohli 33 (29) via an LBW. From then, the run rate went down for the two overs. After Kohli's wicket, Glenn Maxwell 39 (28) got out in the MI debut player Jansen.

Maxwell really played well in this innings like he has something to prove to himself. AB de Villers replaced Kohli and Shabaz Ahmed replaced Glenn Maxwell.

Shabaz got out for just 1 run in 2 balls in the same Jansen over where Maxwell got out. This wicket really placed the RCB in the tough spot, as no player is backing the AB de Villers.

Then Dan Christain replaced the Shabaz, he rotated the strikes and gave the AB d Villers the chance to hit the ball to score runs. He just stayed in the crease for 3 balls before J Bumrah got him. 

Then, Kyle Jamieson got run out, he was called by the AB de Villiers to get the strike for the next ball. As the ball is near to the bowler Bumrah, he hit the wickets. 

In the next over, AB de Villiers got run out in the process of taking two runs. Instead of running in a straight line, he ran a circle at the other end before coming to the crease, this made him lose time. Kurnal Panday passed the ball at the exact moment to Ishan Kishan.

Then, Harshal Patel and Mohammed siraj won the game by making the final run in the final ball. The match is taken to the last ball.

The Man of the Match goes to Harshal Patel for his debut 4 wicket haul against the Mumbai Indians in the first match of IPL.

IPL 2021 Match 1 MI vs RCB Match 1st innings Report

image: BCCI Harshal Patel after taking 4 wicket haul against MI

After winning the toss for a long time, Royal Challenger Bangalore team captain Virat Kohli opted to bowl first thinking that, he can restrict the opposition Team Mumbai Indians for a low score. 

Rohit Sharma and Chris Lynn opened the innings for the Mumbai Indians. At the end of 3rd over, Chris Lynn got Rohit Sharma run out with a stupid call from him. 

When Suryakumar Yadav and Chris Lynn build a good partnership of  70 runs in 44 balls. Suryakumar Yadav got out by a ball from Jameison, while pulling a shot, the ball edged and carried to the wicketkeeper.

Then the MI young star player came to the crease when he is playing well and building a partnership with Chris Lynn. Chris Lynn got out, at one run short to 50. Then Hardik Pandya came and left very soon after playing 10 balls.

After that, the players came and gone like it's a cameo party. The so-called death over destructive batsman also left early.  At the end of 20 overs, the score is just 159/9. No one has a chance to hit the ball far in the last five overs, thanks to RCB bowler Harshal Patel.

The last over was a colossal mess for the Mumbai Indians, they lost four wickets in the last over. They gave three wickets to the new recruit Harshal Patel and a run-out in the last ball. 

Harshal proved himself by taking 4 wicket haul against the previous year champions. he didn't even flinch in the death overs. Especially, in the last over, he took three wickets which is really amazing for the young player.

If the Royal Challengers Bangalore won this match, it's because of Harshal Patel. If he didn't pick those wickets, the Mumbai Indians score would be around 190-200.
