Both the teams are looking to register their first win of the tournament and have been struggling so far. Mumbai Indians take on Delhi Daredevils at the Wankhede in a crucial encounter.

Both the batsman cleared the boundary ropes easily as runs began to flow thick and fast. Though, their bowling has been decent but not their best despite having the likes of Trent Boult, Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Chris Morris, Shahbaz Nadeem, Rahul Tewatia, etc.

On a day when the bowlers lived up to their reputation by restricting MI to 147-8, SRH's experienced batsmen nearly threw the match away as eventually it was the last wicket pair of Deepak Hooda and No 11 Billy Stanlake who scrambled home. The right-hander slammed 32-ball 53 and hit seven fours and a six.

Mumbai raced to 50 runs in just 3.4 overs, as Yadav and Lewis continued their onslaught on Delhi bowlers. Winning the toss, DD captain Gautam Gambhir chose to bowl first.

MI had come excruciatingly close to tasting victory before SRH won the match by one wicket in the last ball while chasing 148 runs.

The final tally of 194 for 7 of the title-holders after such a brilliant beginning was not good enough to stop the Daredevils who rode on opener Jason Roy's unbeaten 91 off 53 balls to reach the target off the last ball and score their first win of the season.


With the Indians continuing to lose wickets after Pollard's dismissal, they ended up finishing on 147/8 off their 20 overs. It is now time for other bowlers, like Jasprit Bumrah and Mustafizur Rehman, to give their best to the team's bowling attack.

After the departure of Yadav, wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan and skipper Rohit Sharma took the charge, and put up 57-run partnership for the third wicket. Pollard couldn't inflict major damage as the Australian all-rounder dismissed him for a golden duck in the very next delivery.

Krunal Pandya scored 11 runs off 10 balls with one four only, while Hardik Pandya went for 2 runs off 3 balls. They need another 142 runs from 84 balls.

Pant did not spare Dhananjaya, hitting him for two sixes and a four as Delhi grabbed 19 runs of the tenth over.

On Saturday, April 14, 2018, it's a doubleheader, the first game of the Indian Premier League will be played between the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils at 4:00 PM India time. Both the teams did not have their expected start this season with both facing a loss in their opening matches. Before holing one to Jason Roy at mid-off, Lewis smashed a 28-ball 48; laced with four sixes and an equal number of boundaries. Roy was more brute force, striking clean to easily find the boundaries.

Finally, Roy and Shreyas Iyer finished the job for the Delhi Daredevils.
