IPL 2018: Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils match preview

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.

With eleven needed off the final over, Roy seemingly sealed the game with a four and a six but three dot balls followed before he managed a single off the final ball to take Delhi through.

Despite departure of Gambhir (15) in the sixth over with total on 50, Roy kept the team in the chase in the first in the company of young Rishabh Pant and then Shreyas Iyer.

Mumbai Indians locked horns with Delhi Daredevils at home and needed a win after losing the first two games to CSK and SRH.

It will be the ninth match of season 11 where the Mumbai Indians face Delhi Daredevils today. Just three overs to go. His four overs are guaranteed and even though he was expensive in his last two outings, Boult is capable of running through batting orders, and delivering yorkers at the death.

Ishan Kishan went for an ambitious switch hit to a Dan Christian full toss, missed and was bowled. Mumbai's Hardik Pandya had no answer for the rampaging-Brit, the allrounder leaking 32 runs from his two overs and giving Roy the ideal start to capitalise on.

One the other hand, the Knight Riders' last match was on Tuesday, providing them ample time to prepare for the clash.

Mumbai Indians: Mystery pinner Akila Dananjaya makes his IPL debut replacing all-rounder Ben Cutting while the charismatic Hardik Pandya returns to the eleven after missing out on the away game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. "If I keep my routine and those small small processes right, this (pointing to his Orange Cap) will come someday", said the 27-year-old Mumbai batsman.

Delhi's batting was a talk all around before the start of the tournament.

On Thursday evening, the Sunrisers beat Mumbai Indians in a nail-biter at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad.

After Yadav (53 off 32 balls) and Lewis (48 off 28 balls) posted the century stand, their good work was continued by Ishan Kishan (44 off 23 balls).

With Roy settled at one end, Pant used his brute power to hit flat shots square of the wicket and also played the lofts straight down the pitch well to collect six fours and two sixes in his 25-ball 47.

Talking statistically, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils has faced on 20 occasions, out of which Mumbai has come out on top 11 times and Delhi has won 9 times. Morris too had been costly with ball in both the games.
