Mumbai's batting line-up which brags of assaulting players like captain Rohit Sharma, West Indians Elvin Lewis, Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav has neglected to flame as one in the initial two recreations. For Delhi, pacer Daniel Christian, Tewatia and pacer Trent Boult bagged two wicket apiece while spinner Shabaz Nadeem scalped one. We wanted momentum by taking early wickets but we couldn't. Hardik Pandya out! 2 (3balls) c Shreyas Iyer.Mayank Markande comes into attack.
In his absence, big brother Krunal Pandya could be pushed up the order as Hardik did not play in the game against Sunrisers. On the other hand, Delhi Daredevils might play Jason Roy in place of Colin Munro as the latter has faced difficulties against spin.
However, after a stunning onslaught that gave them 84 runs in the Powerplay, Mumbai lost five wickets for 21 runs to end up with 194 that was below-par on one of the friendliest Wankhede pitches. That was also evident at the Wankhede as he bided his time against Mumbai's spinners, until when he felt Daredevils needed a boundary.
Mumbai raced to their 100 in just 8.3 overs.
Ishan Kishan only made nine runs, while Evin Lewis struck a 17-ball 29 before he was clean bowled by Siddarth Kaul. Perhaps that's the reason why the Ricky Ponting-mentored team, is hoping to take the aggressive route when they take on Mumbai. And after three Mumbai still remained wicket-less. "They have a long way to go", Rohit said.Читайте также: 'Complete' Bayern Munich the Champions League favourites, insists Owen Hargreaves
The onslaught on the spin duo allowed DD to take a safer route against Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman and Krunal Pandya.
Having restricted MI to 147/8, SRH made heavy weather of a chase-able target but in the end rode Deepak Hooda's unbeaten 25-ball 32 to get past the line. Ishan Kishan (36 off 19) is also looking unsafe here. Yadav and Lewis hit a 4 and 6 respectively. "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.
Rishabh Pant (47) then arrived in the middle to build a partnership of 69 with Roy until the 20-year-old was caught by Pollard as he chased a half-century, bellowing his frustration as he departed.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
