Delhi Daredevils (195-3) opened their account in IPL 2018 as they chased the highest ever IPL total at the Wankhede Stadium defeating Mumbai Indians (194-7) by 7 wickets.

England opening batsman Jason Roy played a brilliant innings for Delhi Daredevils on Saturday to send Mumbai Indians to their third consecutive defeat in the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) season.

Vital partnerships Roy had partnerships of 50 with captain Gautam Gambhir, 69 with wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant (47 off 25), and an unbeaten 60 for the fourth wicket with Iyer. Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis laying a strong platform for the reigning champions. However, irrespective of the contrast in statistics between the two the teams as compared to the last season, MI and DD both have had a torrid start in the 11th season of IPL as they have lost their first two games.

"I was thinking 160-170 would be a good target, but didn't happen", Kolkata captain Dinesh Karthik said.

The left-arm spinner from Bangladesh took the two key wickets of Chris Lynn (49 off 34 balls; 7x4, 1x6) and Sunil Narine (9) to play a big role in restricting KKR to a small total. Earlier today, Delhi won the toss and made a decision to Field.

Mumbai: Hardik Pandya turned up for training on Friday but he is still a doubtful starter. It was defendable when we started fielding. A quick single and the job would have been done, but Mustafizur did not allow one of the most successful strikers of the day to connect the next three balls. "We were waiting for this win, and especially against Mumbai Indians, it's a great comeback from the team and obviously all of wanted to win this game, so really enjoyed". A four and a six ensued leaving just the solitary run to get from the remaining four balls.

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.

Williamson's innings was laced with 4 fours and one six while Shakib hit 2 fours and a six during his knock as the duo shared 59-run stand for the fourth wicket to guide their team.

Talking about Markande, he said that the bowler is impressive in the field.

But the hosts have in captain Ravichandran Ashwin a master tactician who happens to be a former Chennai player, and hence someone who will know best how to exploit the weaknesses of his ex-teammates. 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.
