IPL Cricket: Roy inspires Daredevils to extend Indians' misery

Meanwhile, in the first match of the day, Delhi registered their first win in three matches as they beat Mumbai by seven wickets off the last ball of the match.

Replacing Colin Munro at the top of the order, Roy smashed an unbeaten 91 off 53 balls with six sixes and six four as he anchored Delhi to 195-3 off 20 overs in reply to Mumbai's 194-7.

Mumbai: Owing to an extremely explosive start by openers Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis, Mumbai Indians (MI) piled up a very large score of 194/7 against Delhi Daredevils (DD) after being put in to bat first at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday. DD bowlers were hit all over the park by the opening pair and the 100-run stand seemed to be getting Mumbai to a solid 200+ total but then Evin Lewis was the first to go by getting caught to Rahul Tewatia's bowling.

"As the situation demands, you have to be ready at any number you bat and all the players have to be on their toes", Iyer said. Starting with MI, their top-order failed in both their games during which they descovered a special bowler in leg-spinner Mayank Markande, who is leading the top wicket-takers chart in the early stages of the tournament.

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. So they are looking to start their winning campaign today.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad have got off to a great start in the IPL this year. We just need (to win) one game, then the momentum will be built from there.

In the build-up, this was a clash between an established powerhouse and a team full of promising talent; in reality, it was a scrap between two sides searching for their first win in the season. He made a big statement in the fifth over by scoring 21 runs including two big sixes off Hardik Pandya.

MI were left to rue the last five overs of their innings with the bat as they could only post 36 runs off them.

For the hosts, opener Chris Lynn (49; 34b 7×4 1×6) was the top-scorer as skipper Dinesh Karthik laboured to a 27-ball 29 hitting two fours and a six. "We believed that we could even after taking it to the last over", Iyer said.

Head to head: Mumbai lead 11-9 in the 20 matches played against Delhi. Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard departed off consecutive deliveries, the latter bowled off the first ball, and the Pandya brothers shortly after that never allowed MI to get away in the final overs of the innings.
