Especially regarding timing. Later, there was little movement until the dew hit. In such a situation, if you have wickets left, then you remain in profit.

The order of Mumbai lost their first match since 2013 remained intact. Describing the partnership between Rayudu and Duplessis as important, Dhoni said, "It took time for our bowlers to get the rhythm. Rayudu played an excellent partnership with Faf.
