Daredevils stunt Mumbai in thriller

Rashid Khan IPL 2018 Sunrisers Hyderabad

The body language and the approach with which the Delhi Daredevils trained on the eve of their match against hosts Mumbai Indians, it was evident that the visitors plan to outbat the home team when the two meet in their IPL match at the Wankhede Stadium, here, on Saturday afternoon.

Opener Roy made a mockery of a listless Mumbai Indians bowling attack as he hammered six fours and as many sixes in his 53-ball knock to help Delhi overhaul the home team's 194/7 for their first win of the season.

Earlier, Mumbai Indians batting finally clicked with Suryakumar Yadav leading the way with a whirlwind fifty as the defending champions posted a formidable score.

Suryakumar Yadav top scored for the team with his 53 runs.

Rohit Sharma was unbeaten on 13 while left-handed Krunal Pandya was the new man in.

Mumbai opener Ewan Lewis was on a boundary hitting spree in the sixth over driving Daniel Christian for three fours and a six as Mumbai galloped to 84 for no loss after six overs.

The Aussie Pack: Aussies featured only on Ricky Ponting's side for this match, Dan Christian seeping 35 runs from his three overs but picking up two vital scalps back-to-back. Support came initially from captain Gautam Gambhir, then Rishabh Pant. Roy struck 10 runs in the first two balls but missed to get the bat on next three. Over the years, Mumbai has been guilty of being poor starters in the tournament.

One the other hand, the Knight Riders' last match was on Tuesday, providing them ample time to prepare for the clash.

Also, it is time for Gambhir should understand that Shami, who has been facing some tough days in his personal life, has been always an expensive bowler in IPL. 50 comes up for Yadav in 29 balls.

With Roy settled at one end, Pant used his brute power to hit flat shots square of the wicket and also played the lofts straight down the pitch well to collect six fours and two sixes in his 25-ball 47. Another boundary in the same Bumrah over from Iyer's bat was followed by a similar kind of a dropped catch by Mustafizur to keep Delhi ahead. But, on Friday, while we were coming back on the flight (from Hyderabad to Mumbai), and in the bus to the hotel they said they'd love if I'd open the innings as I have played a lot of cricket here (at the Wankhede) and I was the most experienced.

Roy even hammered Hardik Pandya for 21 runs in one of the overs. The problem, though, with the Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians is that their bowling hasn't quite taken off in the 11th edition of the IPL. We haven't spoken too much about the last game.
