IPL 2018: Shreyas Iyer appreciates DD bowlers for death bowling

Nikhil's Team

Besides all this, DD will be more under pressure as they will be playing this match at MI's home Wankhede Stadium and going by the numbers in past, Mumbai holds upper hand both in terms overall head to head clash and at their home venue as well. Suryakumar Yadav's performance has been a ray of hope for the team, while Mayank Markande has been outperforming in the last two matches, having taken seven wickets so far.

They really bowled some good slower ones. A big appeal, but Gambhir is safe, Pandya fuming as two boundaries off the first over.

Roy was there till the end and he found a partner in Shreyas Iyer.

With the Indians continuing to lose wickets after Pollard's dismissal, they ended up finishing on 147/8 off their 20 overs. Seven runs off the over.

Leggie Rahul Tewatia struck in the ninth and 11th over to get rid off the two in-form openers. Akila Dananjaya comes to the crease. The spinner bowled brilliant first three overs conceding 17 runs and picking up 2 wickets. Left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem was horribly inaccurate and did not flight the ball, while Shami and Dan Christian bowled lengths that allowed the batsmen room.

Mumbai raced to their 100 in just 8.3 overs. Kishan smashes a boundary, looking to hit every ball for a boundary.Ishan Kishan out! As a result, they went into the last over requiring 11 runs to win. When Mumbai Indians' campaign was starting just about a week ago, their main weakness was being seen as the lack of a standout spin-bowling option. Ishan Kishan (36 off 19) is also looking risky here. 50 comes up for Yadav in 29 balls.

Mumbai Indians (MI) are the defending champions and were the table toppers in previous edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), while Delhi Daredevils (DD) stood at 6th in the tally last season. But Mumbai's main bowlers Jasprit Bumrah (1-0-2-0) and Mustafizur Rahman (2-0-7-1) have pull things back a bit. This is Mumbai Indians' fastest Fifty in the tournament. While Suryakumar smashed 53 off 32 balls, Lewis scored 48 off 28 balls. Trent Boult opens the attack. Mustafizur dismissed Gambhir in the sixth over, but Mumbai could do little to stop the duo of Roy and Rishabh Pant. Both the teams have lost their opening fixtures and while DD also went down to Rajasthan Royals in their rain-interrupted second game.

Rishabh Pant (47) then arrived in the middle to build a partnership of 69 with Roy until the 20-year-old was caught by Pollard as he chased a half-century, bellowing his frustration as he departed.
