Mumbai Indians take on Delhi Daredevils in bid top open account

IPL 2018: SunRisers Hyderabad Win A Thriller Against Mumbai Indians

Meet Rashid Khan, who got only 1 wicket and awarded as Man of the Match

Jason Roy smashed an unbeaten 91 as Delhi Daredevils defeated hosts Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in a last-ball thriller in the Indian Premier League.

There was plenty of drama before Jason Roy gave the finishing blow to a pulsating Vivo-IPL match, lifting Bangladesh's left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman over cover for Daredevils' first win in three matches.

Rishabh Pant scored 47 runs with his willow. The misfortune continued for Mumbai as they lost to Delhi Daredevils in an encounter that stretched to the last ball yet again. Mumbai Indians have come back from worse starts and gone on to win titles, and both they and Delhi Daredevils can tell themselves their results so far do not fully reflect how they have played.

Suryakumar Yadav top scored for the team with his 53 runs. He played a significant part in MI's outing against CSK (22 not out in an unbroken fifth-wicket partnership of 52 and three for 24 from four overs). Roy was severe on Markande, as the purple cap holder conceded 27 runs in his first two overs. Hence in today's match, Mumbai Indians has more chance to win against Delhi Daredevils in its home match. Both have played two and lost two. It was the third successive loss for Mumbai and they remain without a point after three matches.

Stanlake, Kaul and Sandeep Sharma picked up two wickets apiece, while Rashid Khan and Shakib Al Hasan chipped in with one wicket each. For Mumbai bowlers, the task is simple: stay disciplined, dry up the runs and force the batsmen to make mistakes.

This could put a question mark over the availability of their bowling spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar who had to miss Thursday's clash against the Indians due to a sore back.

Pant did not spare Dhananjaya, hitting him for two sixes and a four as Delhi grabbed 19 runs of the 10th over. Hardik Pandya, who had twisted his ankle in the tournament opener against Chennai Super Kings, reclaimed his regular spot at the expense of Pradeep Sangwan. Shikhar Dhawan and Mumbai Indians' favourite, Mayank Markandey, was the actual hero of the match because Dhawan made a fighting 45 runs, while Mayank Markande got four-wickets in his spell. Trent Boult and Mohammad Shami both are being punished without discrimination. Two boundaries, one by Lewis and one by Yadav, good over for MI. Out of the 18 balls bowled, seven deliveries either went to the boundary or over it. The India all-rounder is capable of hitting towering sixes and has the knack of picking up wickets at crucial stages of the match, besides being an athletic fieldsman. Even though MI ended up on the losing side, Markande was the best bowler on the night, and Delhi will have to deal with his variations in a bid to score quick runs in the Powerplay.
