The four-time champions Mumbai took first place in the table and will take a break in the final next Tuesday to prove their victory in qualification 1.
Suryakumar Yadav (51 of 38 balls) marked his 100th IPL match with half a century, while Ishan Kishan (55, not of 30) also lifted his bat when the owners posted 200-5.
Quinton de Kock (40 of 25) and Hardik Pandya (37 of 14) were the other batsmen from Mumbai who ran a show at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Ravichandran Ashwin (3-29) was Capitals’ standout bowler.
The game was all but over by the start of the chase when Boult and Bumrah got excited and the defending champions took three wickets before Delhi got a run on the board.
Bumrah replaced Kagiso Rabada as the leading wicket taker in this year’s tournament with a staggering 4-14, and Boult would have likely won more than 2 to 9 if he had bowled more than two overs.
Delhi never recovered from a fatal early breakout from the Tempo duo, who had 49 wickets between them in the 2020 IPL, and their eventual 143-8 was way more than they expected.
Marcus Stoinis (65 of 46) and Axar Patel (42 of 33) have saved some pride and Delhi will have to regroup before they face Sunrisers Hyderabad or Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday to play Mumbai in the final.
KISHAN AND PANDYA CHAPTER IT OUT
De Kock took the first hit from Daniel Sams, but Rohit Sharma opted for a golden duck when caught in the leg before downplaying the wrong line to an Ashwin delivery.
The owners flew 63-1 at the end of the powerplay, with Yadav making good contact, but De Kock missed 10 minutes to half a century and they were 101-4 in the 13th when Kieron Pollard’s excellent Ashwin victim came third.
However, Kishan and Pandya conjured a devastating late-night rush by dumping 60 of just 23 balls, with Anrich Nortje suffering the most as he lost 50 of his four overs.
Pandya started straight sixes in Rabada’s penultimate game, hitting a total of five, while Kishan sent the final ball of Nortje’s innings over extra cover for six to hit his half-century and hit the 200.
BOULT AND BUMRAH MAGIC DOUBLE PROBLEMS FOR DELHI
Delhi needed a brilliant start to pursue a big goal, but instead they became the first IPL team to go three points behind without scoring a run.
Boult and Bumrah rested after the Indians’ heavy loss to the Sunrisers in their last regular season game, and the refreshed pacemakers were on the money when they returned.
The quick boult with the left arm sacked Prithvi Shaw and Ajinkya Rahane in the first game before Bumrah Shikhar Dhawan bowled with an unplayable scorching Yorker.
Shreyas Iyer also fell victim to the brilliant Bumrah before Rishabh Pant was dispatched by Krunal Pandya to leave Delhi 41-5. Stoinis’ entertaining tapping will always be in vain.
