Roy sparkles as DD snap losing streak in humdinger

IPL 2018 Who is Mayank Markande? Full details

So much so that the cricket fans right from the Mumbai Indian supporters to the Chennai Super Kings worshippers are glued to their television sets. The defending champions were at the receiving end of last over finishes and captain Rohit Sharma would be telling his troops to just cross the finishing line and stay patient. On other hand, DD are yet to play at home but they have tasted defeats at the hands of Kings XI Punjab at Mohali and Rajasthan Royals at Jaipur. The likes of Rishabh Pant, Chris Morris, Glenn Maxwell should perform to sustain that argument and to provide their team a victory in this year's IPL.

Roy made up for a struggling Gautam Gambhir, ensuring Daredevils had a brisk run rate even as the captain scored at a run a ball. Later, Daniel Christian (3-35-2) and Trent Boult (4-39-2) also chipped in with a couple of wickets each. Roy was more brute force, striking clean to easily find the boundaries.

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.

In his absence, big brother Krunal Pandya could be pushed up the order as Hardik did not play in the game against Sunrisers.

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. Ishan Kishan follwed it up with another crucial contribution as he balsted his way to 44 off just 23 balls. Here's where the Mumbai bowlers will come into play. Bowled. Krunal Pandya comes in. "They have a long way to go", Rohit said. This is Mumbai Indians' fastest Fifty in the tournament. In his next over, Tewatia foxed Lewis by floating up a googly and drawing the mis-hit that was caught at mid off. Yadav smashes a boundary in the first ball, Boult drops the catch of Lewis, 10 runs off the over. Evin Lewis top scored for the MI with 29 from 17 balls while all-rounder Hardik Pandya missed out due to injury. "The comeback was fantastic by the bowlers and hopefully we keep continuing doing the same things", said local lad Shreyas Iyer who scored a modest 20-ball 27 on the night but more importantly held fort at one end as Jason Roy (91*) steered the visitors to victory. The misfortune continued for Mumbai as they lost to Delhi Daredevils in an encounter that stretched to the last ball yet again.
