IPL 2018: Under-fire KKR faces Daredevils

Share

England opening batsman Jason Roy made a stunning debut for Delhi Daredevils in their last-ball, seven-wicket victory against defending champions Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League on Saturday. "It was a key partnership between you (Pant) and me". Local boy Rishabh Pant, who smashed a 25-ball 47 against Mumbai Indians, will also be a vital cog in the wheel.

"Obviously nice to win three in a row, and this surface required some adapting, but the real highlight was our fielding tonight", Hyderabad captain Williamson said at the post match presentation. None of Rohit Sharma, Pollard and the Pandya brothers fired, and Mumbai Indians went run-a-ball for the last three overs.

Delhi won the toss and opted to field first, with openers Suryakumar Yadav (53 off 32) and Evin Lewis (48 off 28) giving hosts Mumbai a rapid start.

Mumbai: Hardik Pandya turned up for training on Friday but he is still a doubtful starter.

Bhuvneshwar's breakthrough and a tidy two-run over by Stanlake had KKR struggling for 23/1 in four overs before Lynn and Rana seized the momentum in two overs off Siddharth Kaul and Rashid Khan who leaked 14 and 12 overs respectively in their first overs.

Suryakumar admitted it was "a little disappointing" to have lost all their three matches Mumbai have played so far, but he was confident of the team making a comeback. "If the bowler is good enough he can bowl really well", he added.

The sheriff's office says Ecker admitted to smoking marijuana as recently as the night before, but away from the child. The report found that the toddler tested positive for "chronic" use of both methamphetamine and amphetamine.

Gambhir also lauded Roy's effort with the bat, calling him "a class player".

Needing 11 off the final over by Mustafizur Rahman, Roy crashed the first delivery - wide outside off- to the cover boundary, and swung the next, down leg delivery, over backward square-leg boundary for a six.

After skipper Gautam Gambhir's departure off the first ball of the sixth over, Roy's presence gave Daredevils the feeling the target could be reached.

Iyer, who remained unbeaten on 27 off 20 balls, said that the shuffle in the batting order did not affect him much.

Besides all this, DD will be more under pressure as they will be playing this match at MI's home Wankhede Stadium and going by the numbers in past, Mumbai holds upper hand both in terms overall head to head clash and at their home venue as well. Depends on player to player. "We figured that one of the top four have to stick around and finish".

Rana hit Stanlake firmly just wide of Pandey, who showed incredible reaction to grab it on the second attempt and give SRH the breakthrough in four balls after play resumed.
