Reigning champions Mumbai Indians, meanwhile, lost their second straight game by a one-wicket margin having been beaten by CSK in the opening match on Apr.7 and as for SRH, they have now won both their matches.
The England opener, smashed 91 runs off 53 balls to take home the man-of-the-match award. After a disastrous start of two successive defeats, both MI and DD are looking forward to a win. Rishabh Pant stepped in at No.3 and complemented Roy. Roy-Pant were dominating the Mumbai bowlers with Hardik Pandya, Akila Dananjaya and Mayank Markande being hit all over the park.
Both the batsman cleared the boundary ropes easily as runs began to flow thick and fast. Trent Boult, Dan Christian and Rahul Tewatia picked up 2 wickets each, where Mohammed Shami bagged 1. Evin Lewis fell after 48 off 28 balls with 4 sixes and four fours. Delhi will now travel to Kolkata to take on the Knight Riders on Monday and Mumbai host Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday.
"We went for too many runs in the Powerplay, it became really tough to pull back". They were given a reasonable score to win in just six overs.
Suryakumar Yadav is the only batsman to be among runs and his role will be a key element for the team, especially if it loses early wickets. Sunrisers Hyderabad chased down 148-run target with just a wicket remaining in the last ball of the inning. The bowler saw his final over been hit for 19 runs to finish with figures of 2-36 as Mumbai brought up their 150 runs in 14.1 overs. Young Jharkhand keeper Ishan Kishan further stepped on the gas with a 21 ball 43 (SR: 191.30) in a fifty run stand with skipper Rohit Sharma (18). Pollard couldn't inflict major damage as the Australian all-rounder dismissed him for a golden duck in the very next delivery.
In yet another nail-biting competition, DD defeated MI by seven wickets in VIVO IPL 2018 clash at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. Glenn Maxwell made a quick-fire 13 from six deliveries, but a brilliant outfield catch by Hardik Pandya got the better of the Aussie allrounder.
Jason Roy plays a shot. "If you see in the last two to three years, spinners are doing well in the T20 format". Delhi may have lost Rishabh Pant and Glen Maxwell but they have kept the run rate up. "The comeback was unbelievable by the bowlers and hopefully we keep continuing doing the same things", said local lad Shreyas Iyer who scored a modest 20-ball 27 on the night but more importantly held fort at one end as Jason Roy (91*) steered the visitors to victory.
