IPL: Jason Roy's unbeaten 91 helps Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians

  • Jason Roy & Rishabh Pant

Delhi's batting was a talk all around before the start of the tournament. It was Mumbai third consecutive defeat. Mumbai Indians had set themselves for a total around 240, but could only reach 194 because of a poor finish with the bat.

Wriddhiman Saha departed after a 24-run cameo at the top, Shikhar Dhawan perished to Sunil Narine's first ball, while Pandey was trapped in front by Kuldeep Yadav before Williamson and Shakib added 59 runs for the fourth wicket. JJ Roy (91 runs off 53 balls) and RR Pant (47 runs off 25 balls) took DD home. The captaincy and performance of Rohit Sharma also deserve criticism. The move worked like a dream.

For Delhi, left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem returned best figures of 2/34 while New Zealand pacer Trent Boult and India fast bowler Mohammed Shami also picked up a wicket apiece.

Hopefully, in today's game, they will chase a good score or bat first and put up a formidable total on the board. Off his three overs, DD plundered 42 runs.

The House and Senate each voted in two steps to override Governor Matt Bevin's vetoes of the tax increase and the overall budget. Educators say today they will be keeping a close eye on the "tweaks" expected to be made to the budget and revenue bills.

The slump began against the legspinner Rahul Tewatia, who conceded three runs in the seventh over. Yadav and Lewis hit a 4 and 6 respectively. The lull was worsened by Suryakumar's dismissal shortly after he had scored his second fifty in 45 IPL innings.

Ishan Kishan propped up the innings again, a blitzy 23-ball 44 giving Mumbai the platform for the big launch. Rohit showed a peculiar lack of urgency, Kieron Pollard was bowled for a golden duck, and even the Pandya brothers - Krunal and Hardik - were kept quiet. Delhi Daredevils were absolutely clueless in their first match against the batting of KL Rahul while they were a little bit on the unlucky side in the rain-affected match against RR.

The five-time Asian champion has claimed three gold medals in the last five months, starting with the Asian Championships in Vietnam.

Amid claims English players are called out to the Indian Premier League to play a merely supporting cast-type role, Jason Roy went some way to silencing those critics on Saturday. Roy was efficient in using his feet to meet the pitch of the ball, as well as using the depth of the crease while shifting back. Neither their balling line up made a lasting impression. Roy neutralised that as well with brute force to clear the boundaries. Yadav, who has been in good nick both in the ongoing IPL as well as in domestic fixtures in the recently-concluded season, made the most of it. Daredevils batsman Shreyas Iyer said they were expecting a target of around 220 and were obviously happy to be going after 195 instead. Although the equation was simple, the final run was not with the Bangladeshi quick bowling three dot balls in a row to leave Roy needing one run from the final ball with pressure mounting.
