DD vs MI, IPL 2018


Bhunvneshwar Kumar (3-26) was the pick of an impressive bowling unit on his return from injury, though Shakib and towering Australia seamer Billy Stanlake, who found real pace and carry, also impressed with figures of 2-21.

Jason Roy smashed an unbeaten 91 as Delhi Daredevils defeated hosts Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in a last-ball thriller in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Mumbai yesterday.

Talking about his aggression against Kieron Pollard, he said that it was a deliberate effort to force the batsman to make a mistake.

Trent Boult contributed to the win, taking 2-39 from his four overs, removing captain Rohit Sharma for 18, Hardik Pandya and for 2. It was Mumbai third consecutive defeat.

"We were 10-15 runs short but still 180-plus is a good score on any ground", Suryakumar said.

However, they have the highest run-scorer and highest wicket-taker, Suryakumar Yadav wearing the Orange Cap with 124 runs in three innings - scores of 43, 28 and 53 in his first three matches - and leg-spinner Mayank Markande (7 wickets).

President Donald Trump warned Russia Wednesday to "get ready" for a missile attack on its ally Syria. The U.S., France and Britain have been consulting about launching a military strike.

The 19-year-old Ishan Kishan scored a rapid 44 off 23 balls, but his dismissal in the 16th over hurt Mumbai.

Shreyas Iyer: Nobody in the Delhi playing eleven is familiar with the conditions at the Wankhede as Iyer, who learnt all his cricket in Mumbai.

It was yet another day for SRH as they continued to maintain their position at the top of the IPL 2018 table.

After being put to bat, the strategy of opening the inning with Yadav, instead of captain Rohit Sharma, and Evin Lewis worked wonderfully well, as they gave MI a flying start with a 102-run-stand. The only hiccup for Daredevils was the cheap exit of Glenn Maxwell in the 14th over. The visitors will also be banking on Mujeeb Ur Rahman's spin which was lethal in the win over Delhi. They needed 11 to win from the last over which was bowled by Mustafizur and it started horribly wrong for the left arm pacer. With a mere single needed off four balls, Mustafizur did something Mumbai Indians hadn't done a lot off till then. And incredibly, Roy swung and missed not once, not twice, but thrice. Roy didn't let that stop him and he continued to keep the runs ticking.

Despite possessing potent fast bowlers in Andre Russell and Mitchell Johnson, the bowling unit hasn't had a good outing in the season so far. "We can learn many things from this match, especially in the batting department", he said after the match.

Which is what Roy did, and managed to send it soaring over extra cover, even as Iyer jumped into his embrace.
