Roy sparkles as DD snap losing streak in humdinger

Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils IPL 2018, Match 9 Preview: MI, DD aim for turnaround after back-to-back defeats IPL-11: Sunrisers score dramatic one-wicket victory over MI
Freda Brock | 14 April, 2018, 22:27

The Sunrisers Hyderabad handed the Mumbai Indians their second straight loss as they escaped with a thrilling one-wicket win off the final ball of the match.

The England opener, smashed 91 runs off 53 balls to take home the man-of-the-match award. The Delhi Daredevils too are looking for a desperate win and both teams are sure to have a fierce battle at the Wankhede. In all T20s, he has scored 15 runs off five balls against Pradeep Sangwan, 37 off 15 against Mitchell McClenaghan, and 13 off four against Mustafizur Rahman - all this while only being dismissed once. Mumbai Indians take on Delhi Daredevils at the Wankhede in a crucial encounter. Thus, Mumbai Indians and the Delhi Daredevils are all set to lock horns at the first match today. DD bowlers were hit all over the park by the opening pair and the 100-run stand seemed to be getting Mumbai to a solid 200+ total but then Evin Lewis was the first to go by getting caught to Rahul Tewatia's bowling.

Both the batsman cleared the boundary ropes easily as runs began to flow thick and fast.

On a day when the bowlers lived up to their reputation by restricting MI to 147-8, SRH's experienced batsmen nearly threw the match away as eventually it was the last wicket pair of Deepak Hooda and No 11 Billy Stanlake who scrambled home. The duo wrecked havoc and helped MI go past 50-run mark in just 3.4 overs.

Mourinho sends strong message to Martial and Rashford over their futures
With Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford also vying for a starting spot under Mourinho at the tip of United's attack. If I was you I would go ask why Lukaku plays every match, why Matic plays every match.

Mumbai were 187 for six in 19 overs as the Delhi bowlers slowed the pace by picking up wickets. 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. He first removed Lewis, who was caught near mid-off, on an individual score of 48 off 28 balls.

This, perhaps, could be a front-loaded blueprint for the rest of their season, with perhaps Morris held back for the slog overs; and Gambhir playing the role of a firefighting No. 4 or No. 5 in case Daredevils lose early wickets, and remaining happy not to get a hit if the power-hitters really get going. Young Jharkhand keeper Ishan Kishan further stepped on the gas with a 21 ball 43 (SR: 191.30) in a fifty run stand with skipper Rohit Sharma (18). Rohit showed a peculiar lack of urgency, Kieron Pollard was bowled for a golden duck, and even the Pandya brothers - Krunal and Hardik - were kept quiet. Mumbai raced to 84/0 after the powerplay, their highest score in IPL history during that phase. But Gambhir (15), failed to convert his start, as he gave a sitter to Rohit Sharma off Rahman.

Look no further than teenage leggie sensation Mayank Markande, who has racked up seven wickets already in the competition by taking 3-23 against Super Kings and 4-23 against Sunrisers - without tasting victory.
