Jason Roy after match-winning knock: Wankhede Stadium great place to bat

Buoyed by an outrageous knock from Jason Roy which almost went awry in the final over from Mustafizur Rahman, Delhi Daredevils scampered to their first win of the season, beating Mumbai Indians in their backyard by seven wickets. Yadav smashes a boundary in the first ball, Boult drops the catch of Lewis, 10 runs off the over.

In a superb move, Mumbai Indians chose to bring Rohit Sharma back to the middle-order after he failed to impose himself in the first two games of the season. Rohit Sharma, the Pandya brothers and the lower order could only chip in with low scores as Mumbai Indians were restricted to 194 for 7. Batting first, Mumbai Indians notched up a competitive total of 194/7 in 20 overs riding on a half-century from Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis (48) and Ishan Kishan (44). Pandya came to the ground on Friday evening in what was an optional training session, but looked a bit rusty. Just three overs to go. Mumbai lost five wickets for 21 runs, failing to build on a strong base. Whereas, Delhi never had a chance of holding the trophy and is gunning to win the coveted title under veteran opener Gautam Gambhir's guidance.

Pant did not spare Dhananjaya, hitting him for two sixes and a four as Delhi grabbed 19 runs of the tenth over. Mumbai's Hardik Pandya had no answer for the rampaging-Brit, the allrounder leaking 32 runs from his two overs and giving Roy the flawless start to capitalise on.

"They really bowled some good slower ones".

Also, it is time for Gambhir should understand that Shami, who has been facing some tough days in his personal life, has been always an expensive bowler in IPL.

Over 4: 52/0, In this over MI maintains great speed with 12 as 50 comes up for them.

Trying to force the pace, Mumbai Indians captain fell in the 18 over for 18 off 15 balls. Although Krunal Pandya outscored him with the bat, Hardik made up for it with the ball. The 20-year-old has picked up seven wickets in two matches, 3/23 against CSK and 4/23 against SRH. Delhi have a quality team and with players like Gautam Gambhir, Glenn Maxwell, Chris Moris, there is talent and quality and the team just has to believe in themselves. Despite Rohit Sharma's having not performed as expected, MI can feel positive due to the fact that DD has only ever won one match at Wankhede.

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. We haven't spoken too much about the last game.
