Delhi win toss and Gambhir elects to field

14 April 2018

Opener Roy made a mockery of a listless Mumbai Indians bowling attack as he hammered six fours and as many sixes in his 53 ball knock to help Delhi overhaul the home team's 194/7 for their first win of the season.

Rashid was named Man of the Match. Perhaps that's the reason why the Ricky Ponting-mentored team, is hoping to take the aggressive route when they take on Mumbai.

MI scored 147 for eight wickets in their allotted 20 overs and SRH ended up overhauling the score at 151 for 9 wickets. "The comeback was incredible 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. Strategic Timeout!4:30pm: Mumbai Indians 87/0 after 7 overs Excellent start for Rahul Tewatia, gives away three runs off the over.

Joel Embiid officially listed as out for Game 1 vs. Heat
The 52-30 76ers will host the 44-38 Heat in the 3-6 matchup on Saturday for Game 1 and again on Monday for Game 2. The Bucks struggled to keep pace with the 76ers offense despite missing Joel Embiid and J.J.

The defending champion MI must be particularly disappointed in the manner in which it gifted the first two points when it had Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by the scruff of its neck in the league opener last Saturday and also that it could not defend ten runs in the last over against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday. Markande, 20, whose googlies flummoxed even MS Dhoni, has picked up seven wickets in two games to earn the Purple Cap. The team will need its bowlers, including Amit Mishra, Trent Boult and Mohammed Shami, to up their ante in order to put up a strong fight.

Iyer was pleased with his bowlers' comeback, especially after MI raced off to 84/0 in the first six overs. They were given a reasonable score to win in just six overs. He first removed Lewis, who was caught near mid-off, on an individual score of 48 off 28 balls. Pollard couldn't inflict major damage as the Australian all-rounder dismissed him for a golden duck in the very next delivery. "They have a long way to go", Rohit said.

Meanwhile, Delhi Daredevils also has good batting line-up including Gautam Gambhir, Rishab Pant, Aussie Glenn, Maxwell, Jason Roy and Colin Munro.

He said those who had wronged her were among her mourners on Saturday. "But her contribution can not be overlooked", he said. Supporters from all over, many clad in the ANC colours, flocked to attend the service.

In the first game against RCB, KKR pacers had conceded 70 runs in 8 overs. IndianExpress.com will have live scores, updates and commentary from Wankhede Stadium.

Finally, Roy and Shreyas Iyer finished the job for the Delhi Daredevils. Rohit Sharma along with Krunal and Hardik Pandya couldn't do much with the skipper departing for 18, Krunal for 11 and Hardik for 2. "It was a tough performance, and we got to learn from those mistakes and make sure the next game here we come back", Streak added.
