We were waiting for this win especially against Mumbai Indians. Though Roy smashed a four and a six off the first two deliveries, Mustafizur bowled three consecutive dots balls. It was Deepak Hooda who hit the first ball for six as the equation came down to 5 runs from 5 balls.
With one run required of the last four balls off The Fizz, a victory was looking inevitable for Delhi.
Where did MI lose it? Yadav, slotted in as opener, struck 53 off just 32 balls and his partner Evin Lewis finally joined the IPL party with a bellligerent 48 off just 28 balls. However, Mumbai lost too many wickets in the last five overs to captalise on the great start.
Ishan Kishan came in at No.3 and impressed with his batting with a quick 44 in 23 deliveries. This time, however, they couldn't recover.
Delhi bowlers, who have leaked runs aplenty, will also need to step up and strike regular blows to contain Mumbai's strong batting line-up. Under pressure, Roy took another swing at an offcutter from Mustafizur. Hardik Pandya out! 2 (3balls) c Shreyas Iyer.Mayank Markande comes into attack.
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sun Risers Hyderabad
Bhuvneshwar snared captain Dinesh Karthik caught behind for 29 when the Knight Riders were chasing quick runs late in the innings. Mavi bowled just the one over, conceding 10 runs in what turned out to be an overall disappointing game for KKR.
Pant was dismissed after a scintillating 47 off 25 balls, but Roy ensured he kept going. Evin Lewis is also hitting some big ones.
By targetting the right bowlers.
It has been the best start of the season so far. The legspinner was only introduced after the powerplay, but that did not deter Pant and Roy. "They have a long way to go", Rohit said. Similar treatment was meted out to IPL debutant Akila Dhanajaya. Four runs in Munro's first two games combined with Daredevils' successive losses forced a change.
Mumbai (MI) and Delhi (DD) have played two games each and haven't tasted success yet. And after three Mumbai still remained wicket-less.
Not really. Perhaps if they had, Mumbai would've gotten to the total they set their sights on. The ball cleared cover and Daredevils won their first game of the season. With Hooda off strike, it was up to the 6 feet 8 inch fast bowler Billy Stanlake who was playing the second game of his IPL career to seal the deal.
