Roy sparkles as DD snap losing streak

With a high score when Mumbai Indians came to field they were already the favourites for the day until JJ Roy, one of the openers of DD, started firing right from the word go. DD moved up to sixth position after their win, while Mumbai found themselves at the bottom of the table after their third successive defeat. The script was similar for the Rohit Sharma-led team, when it managed to put together a competitive 194 on the board at the Wankhede Stadium after being sent in. "The comeback was awesome 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.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who missed Hyderabad's previous match against Mumbai Indians, was the standout performer with the ball as he picked up three wickets to break the spine of Kolkata. However, the England opener lofted the last ball of the over to take his team home.

Yadav justified his elevation to opener over captain Rohit Sharma by the century stand with Lewis.

Mumbai: Owing to an extremely explosive start by openers Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis, Mumbai Indians (MI) piled up a gigantic score of 194/7 against Delhi Daredevils (DD) after being put in to bat first at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday.

Redick scored 28 and went 4-of-6 on 3s, showing that his "opportunity is now" mindset is clicking on all cylinders. Embiid was a spectator in Game 1 of the first-round series because of a broken orbital bone around his left eye.

Local boy Wriddhiman Saha (24; 15b 5x4 0x6) gave SRH a flying start before Sunil Narine (2/17) got his back in his very first delivery with a fullish delivery down the leg side which took a feather edge off the India Test stumper's bat to Dinesh Karthik who took a sharp catch.

The Aussie Pack: Aussies featured only on Ricky Ponting's side for this match, Dan Christian seeping 35 runs from his three overs but picking up two vital scalps back-to-back.

Roy put on a 50-run stand with skipper Gautam Gambhir for the opening wicket. Akila Dananjaya added 4 runs off 5 balls while Maayank Markande scored 4 runs off 3 balls. Shreyas Iyer played some excellent cricketing shots and eventually remained unbeaten on 27. But Mumbai lost Rohit, Krunal and Hardik in quick succession, as Delhi bowlers made a strong comeback in middle and death overs. Playing their second home game, Yadav and Lewis got Mumbai off to a flyer. Ishan Kishan followed up with 44 off 23 at No 3, but there was next to nothing after that. For Mumbai, the bowlers yet again failed to defend the total.

Krunal Pandya who was doing bowling came in rush and hugged his brother for this fantastic catch. They batted really well and did not give us a chance in first 10-12 overs.
