IPL 2018 7th Match: Sunrisers defeat Indians in last-ball thriller

Preview: Holders Mumbai Indians (MI) and Delhi Daredevils (DD), both winless so far, will be eager to crack a win and register their first points when they clash in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday. In all T20s, he has scored 15 runs off five balls against Pradeep Sangwan, 37 off 15 against Mitchell McClenaghan, and 13 off four against Mustafizur Rahman - all this while only being dismissed once. But the visitors did not look too convincing in a modest chase against Mumbai Indians last night before pulling off a one-wicket victory off the last ball, a first in IPL history.

After being put to bat, the strategy of opening the inning with Yadav, instead of captain Rohit Sharma, and Evin Lewis worked wonderfully well, as they gave Mumbai Indians a flying start with a 102-run-stand.

In order to open, MI asked the in-form batsman Suryakumar Yadav to express himself at the top knowing the fact that he has never opened in his entire career.

After 15 overs, Mumbai were primed for a total of 200 plus having smacked 158 runs for the loss of two wickets. Four runs off the over. Mumbai Indians lost against Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad while Delhi Daredevils to the teams of Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals. While MI lost both their matches very closely, firstly to CSK and then SRH.

While Lewis departed at the end of the ninth over, Yadav completed his fifty in fine style, working the ball towards the mid-wicket region to pick up a couple before he was trapped in front by Rahul Tewatia to head back. For Mumbai bowlers, the task is simple: stay disciplined, dry up the runs and force the batsmen to make mistakes.

Pant did not spare Dhananjaya, hitting him for two sixes and a four as Delhi grabbed 19 runs of the 10th over. But in a match of IPL 11, a bowler was given a man of the match by just one wicket. For Delhi, pacer Daniel Christian, Tewatia and pacer Trent Boult bagged two wicket apiece while spinner Shabaz Nadeem scalped one. Hardik Pandya, who had twisted his ankle in the tournament opener against Chennai Super Kings, reclaimed his regular spot at the expense of Pradeep Sangwan. Two boundaries, one by Lewis and one by Yadav, good over for MI. Surya, who hit seven fours and a six, unsuccessfully reviewed the decision.

Gautam Gambhir, DD: The wicket is not going to change much.

Mumbai have been slow starters in previous IPL seasons and are once again this year, with their third consecutive defeat. The away side got their first breakthrough in the 9th over as Lewis (48 runs) miscued Tewatia delivery to Jason Roy at long off falling two runs short of a half-century.
