Defending Indian Premier League champions Mumbai Indians continued their dismal start to the 2018 tournament with a seven-wicket to Delhi Daredevils.

Mumbai: Owing to an extremely explosive start by openers Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis, Mumbai Indians (MI) piled up a gigantic score of 194/7 against Delhi Daredevils (DD) after being put in to bat first at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday.

Pant did not spare Dhananjaya, hitting him for two sixes and a four as Delhi grabbed 19 runs of the 10th over.

Delhi Daredevils player Jason Roy bats against Mumbai Indians during VIVO IPL cricket T20 match in Mumbai, India, on Saturday, April 14, 2018. While Suryakumar smashed 53 off 32, Lewis hit a quick 28-ball 48, comprised of four six and as many boundaries. The innings turned on its head in the 15th over when Dan Christian bagged 2 wickets in 2 deliveries where Kishan was the first one to be bowled and then Pollard, on the next delivery, went across the line to miss the delivery completely.

Delhi who lost their opening matches to Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals and the loss to Mumbai would have handed them their third straight defeat. A four and a six ensued leaving just the solitary run to get from the remaining four balls.

The belief was strengthened when Rishabh Pant went after leg-spinner Mayank Markande and scored a 25-ball 47 with half a dozen 4s and two sixes.




Talking of bowlers, local boy Mohammed Shami will be returning to the city for the first time after accusations of abusing and cheating his wife Hasin Jahan surfaced last month. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma didn't open for the home side with Suryakumar Yadav stepping in for the skipper along with Evin Lewis.

Let us have a look at the possible reasons for Mumbai Indians' slow start in this years' IPL.

Mumbai: Hardik Pandya turned up for training on Friday but he is still a doubtful starter.

After skipper Gautam Gambhir's departure off the first ball of the sixth over, Roy's presence gave Daredevils the feeling the target could be reached.

Shami has turned out in all the three matches for DD and a team official said there's no question of his availability.

Karthik would also hope that his deputy Robin Uthappa, who is a KKR veteran, shoulders more responsibility with the bat as his scores of 13, 29 and 3 have been a big letdown. Delhi needed one-run off the final ball and Roy connected it and completed the run to ensure that his side won, with Shreyas Iyer (27 not out) at the other end.
