Delhi Daredevils register thrilling win over Mumbai Indians

Delhi Daredevils register thrilling win over Mumbai Indians

Talking of bowlers, local boy Mohammed Shami will be returning to the city for the first time after accusations of abusing and cheating his wife Hasin Jahan surfaced last month.

In between those two deliveries, Roy compiled an innings of relentless, clean hitting that took Daredevils to their first win of the season.

Gambhir, who knows the team like the back of his hand, will lead a Delhi side brimming with confidence after a thrilling seven-wicket win over Mumbai Indians on Saturday in Mumbai.

Iyer, who termed the win against Mumbai "great", said that they were expecting to chase "a score around 220", but was happy with how the bowlers pulled things back. They seemed to have sorted their batting stutters after promoting local man Suryakumar Yadav to the top of the order.

However, they have the highest run-scorer and highest wicket-taker, Suryakumar Yadav wearing the Orange Cap with 124 runs in three innings - scores of 43, 28 and 53 in his first three matches - and leg-spinner Mayank Markande (7 wickets). Ishan Kishan followed up with 44 off 23 at No 3, but there was next to nothing after that. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma didn't open for the home side with Suryakumar Yadav stepping in for the skipper along with Evin Lewis.

After being put in to bat, Mumbai got off to a dream start with each of their top 3 batsman scoring big and scoring quickly. Shreyas said Mumbai bowled some good slower ones at the death. Australian batsman Glenn Maxwell too fell cheaply, for 13 runs to be precise.

Yet another game went down to the last over and yet again, Mumbai Indians (MI) were at the receiving end of the pulsating action. He smashed six boundaries and a whopping six sixes in his assault, ramping up his aggression once he passed a half-century and with the game on the line. "We did not start that well with the ball, but we brought it back extremely well, and then with the bat", Roy told Pant in an interaction for IPLT20.com. It made bowling either length to him problematic, and left the bowlers to try taking pace off the ball. And incredibly, Roy swung and missed not once, not twice, but thrice. English global Jason Roy came out swinging for the rope, and would do so in a way that kept him around at the crease too.

Opener Jason Roy remained unbeaten 91 off 53 balls to guide them to victory.

"I was thinking 160-170 would be a good target, but didn't happen", Kolkata captain Dinesh Karthik said. "It was a key partnership between you (Pant) and me". "If it's your day, you can totally smash every ball".

Which is what Roy did, and managed to send it soaring over extra cover, even as Iyer jumped into his embrace.

The 10th match of the Indian Premier League 2018 will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on April 14, 2018.
