Roy scripts thrilling win for DD

Roy scripts thrilling win for DD”

I am very happy.

Hardik Pandya's presence back in the nets is a huge boost for Mumbai, who face Delhi in an Indian PreMumbaier League (T20) tie at the Wankhede Stadium today.

Iyer was at the non-striker's end as DD needed 11 runs to win off the last over, chasing 195 to win their first match this IPL in three fixtures. Unfortunately for the three-time champions, the nerves seem to be getting the better of them as they have ended up losing all the three matches in nearly similar fashion.

"We were 10-15 runs short but still 180-plus score is a good score on any ground". It was defendable when we started fielding. We wanted momentum by taking early wickets but we couldn't.

"Obviously we were expecting (a total) around 220".

Suryakumar admitted it was "a little disappointing" to have lost all their three matches Mumbai have played so far, but he was confident of the team making a comeback. "But we knew if we stayed till the end we will finish the game", explained Iyer. Jason Roy was Delhi's star with the bat. "It's great to be on the board". A quick single and the job would have been done, but Mustafizur did not allow one of the most successful strikers of the day to connect the next three balls.

Delhi's positive intent came across when they promoted Pant to No.3 after Gambhir fell in the sixth over. He made a big statement in the fifth over by scoring 21 runs including two big sixes off Hardik Pandya.

Pollard was horrendous with the bat as he scored a golden duck but took a brilliant diving catch to dismiss Rishabh Pant and break the 69 run partnership between him and Jason Roy. Shreyas Iyer played some excellent cricketing shots and eventually remained unbeaten on 27. They put up 84 at the end of the powerplay, stitched a 102-run stand in just 54 balls and had set the ideal launchpad for any team to plunder the opposition.

"Well, I am always ready to bat in any position".

Scored only 11 runs with the bat but was way better with the ball as he got rid of both Rishab Pant and Glenn Maxwell. "We're a risky side if we keep going like that". "This year I have worked on that", he added. "I was sure that I would finish the game".

"They really bowled some good slower ones". His four overs are guaranteed and even though he was expensive in his last two outings, Boult is capable of running through batting orders, and delivering yorkers at the death. But he couldn't connect the next three balls and somehow got bat on ball off the last to get the winning run. Boult relies on swing early on and will be a hard bowler to face, even for the likes of Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis. Depends on player to player. I usually prefer to take some time at the start and build my innings.
