Daredevils stunt Mumbai in thriller

Share

Delhi Daredevils handed Mumbai Indians their third consecutive loss in the last ball finish in the Indian Premier League at Mumbai last night (Apr. 14).

Opener Roy made a mockery of a listless Mumbai bowling attack as he hammered six fours and as many sixes in his 53-ball knock to help Delhi overhaul a 195-run target to earn their first win of the season.

Rishabh Pant scored 47 runs with his willow.

Left-arm fast bowler Trent Boult also chipped away with the wickets of Rohit (18) and Hardik Pandya (2) to curtail Mumbai's total below 200.

Gautam Gambhir has seen Suryakumar Yadav flourish under him at Kolkata Knight Riders, but now representing different franchises, Gambhir saw his former teammate promoted to open the innings and score a 32-ball 53 that set the tone for the Mumbai Indians. Roy responded to the challenge of 11 needed off six balls by hitting Mustafizur for a four and a six, but swung and missed at the next three balls. I told them I don't mind batting anywhere as I am flexible, so they said number 3 is the position where I'll be batting.

Besides all this, DD will be more under pressure as they will be playing this match at MI's home Wankhede Stadium and going by the numbers in past, Mumbai holds upper hand both in terms overall head to head clash and at their home venue as well.

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. It was defendable. When we started fielding, we wanted momentum and take early wickets but we couldn't get back in the game.

Gambhir can heave a sigh of relief after their batting combination clicked following some experimentation in the first two matches. But now we have played three and won one. In some matches, the luck didn't go our way but obviously all of us are hitting the ball really well.

A marvellous 91* saw six fours and six sixes, and one of the best innings of the tournament so far. Yusuf pathan smashed an unbeaten 17 runs off 7 balls and finished the game with a six, with a over to spare. We have some players who can just start heavy.

He doesn't feel pressure. "We could've scored five or six goals, so we ought to be proud". "There is nothing left to say". Madrid beat Juventus 4-3 on aggregate, courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo victor from the penalty spot in the 97th minute .

Opting to bowl after winning the toss, SRH's overseas duo of Billy Stanlake (2/21) and Shakib Al Hasan (2/22) put the brakes in the middle overs, triggering a collapse after a one-hour rain delay. Delhi needed one-run off the final ball and Roy connected it and completed the run to ensure that his side won, with Shreyas Iyer (27 not out) at the other end.
