IPL Cricket: Roy inspires Daredevils to extend Indians' misery

Mumbai Indians IPL: Wankhede Stadium packed with 21000 schoolchildren for Mumbai Indians-Delhi Daredevils match

Disappointed at not seeing his team through after scoring his first fifty for Mumbai Indians, and his second IPL fifty ever (the first came for Kolkata Knight Riders two years ago), Yadav said: "We were 10-15 runs short but still 180-plus is a good score on any ground".

Sunrisers Hyderabad panicked and flailed in a chase again, but nowhere near as much as they had against Mumbai Indians on Thursday.

It was a blistering start for MI as Suryakumar (53 in 32 balls) and Lewis (48 in 28 balls) raced to a 100-run partnership.

While Mumbai's middle-order had shown signs of shakiness in the previous games, collapsing in this manner would have created a lot of worries for the team's think-tank.

Mumbai were at 166/4 after 16 overs and before Christian's over, things were looking pretty good for the home team. A team that is three-time champion of the tournament and is now the defending champion, is not supposed to play like Mumbai has been doing so far this season.

The hosts three-pronged spin attack comprising mystery spinner Sunil Narine, chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and leggie Piyush Chawla gave away 60 runs from a combined 12 overs with Narine scalping two wickets and the other two grabbing one wicket apiece.

Mumbai's find of the season so far, the legspinner Mayank Markande, had his first rough night in the IPL. Daredevils batsman Shreyas Iyer said they were expecting a target of around 220 and were obviously happy to be going after 195 instead. Having thundered to 100 halfway in the ninth over, 36 runs off the last five overs was where Mumbai lost the game. Ishan Kishan added 44 to take the total to a healthy 194/7 from their allotted overs. After a nightmarish start in the game, the Australian all-rounder repaid the faith that the team management had put in him when he was drafted into the playing XI in Chris Morris' place. According to our predictions, Kolkata Knight Riders have more chance to win the game tonight.

Delhi's chase was all about Roy and his clean-hitting.

Viewers in India can watch the game live on Star Sports channels with both Hindi and English commentary. However, with the former's failures in the previous games, Gambhir and Co may have run out of patience and chose to give the English opener a chance.

Jason Roy and Rishabh Pant. When the score was 194-7 after 20, they must have thought the match was theirs to win.

Of the seven matches they played at home in 2017, the Royal Challengers managed to win just one. Or an Avesh Khan for that matter.
