Mumbai Sunday won the toss and elected to bowl against Delhi in their campaign opener of the 12th edition of Indian Premier League.
 
Veteran Yuvraj Singh and Quinton de Kock figured in the Mumbai playing XI, while Rasikh Salam, the medium-pacer from Jammu and Kashmir, made his IPL debut.

For Delhi, there was no place for Colin Munro, but Keemo Paul got a chance in a packed bowling attack. The visitors also ignored leg-spinners Sandeep Lamichhane and Amit Mishra, instead giving a place to Rahul Tewatia.

Teams:

Delhi: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer (capt), Rishabh Pant, Colin Ingram, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Trent Boult, Ishant Sharma.

Mumbai: Rohit Sharma (capt), Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Ben Cutting, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rasikh Salam, Jasprit Bumrah.
