Roy sparkles as DD snap losing streak in humdinger

Delhi Daredevils player Jason Roy bats against Mumbai Indians during VIVO IPL cricket T20 match in Mumbai India Saturday

Experts are of the opinion that two-time champions, the Mumbai Indians are short of batsmen as it was visible in their two games.

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. Mumbai's Hardik Pandya had no answer for the rampaging-Brit, the allrounder leaking 32 runs from his two overs and giving Roy the ideal start to capitalise on. The pitch condition is good and it is hoping for Mumbai Indians. On other hand, DD are yet to play at home but they have tasted defeats at the hands of Kings XI Punjab at Mohali and Rajasthan Royals at Jaipur. If DD's impressive batting order of Gautam Gambhir, Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell and Shreyas Iyer perform well, the team could see at adding to their tally of victories at Wankhede.

Chasing the challenging total, the Daredevils were given a rousing start by Roy and captain Gautam Gambhir. Lewis has scored big runs against India in internationals before, and likes pace on the bat, something the likes of Mohammed Shami and Trent Boult will offer up front. There are others who are struggling a little including the Delhi Daredevils and the Mumbai Indians who have sadly lost two of the games played by them. Rohit Sharma out! 18 (15 balls) c Roy. Hardik Pandya comes to the crease.

Mumbai's batting line-up which boasts of attacking players like skipper Rohit Sharma, West Indians Elvin Lewis, Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav has failed to fire in unison in the first two games.

"We went for too many runs in the Powerplay, it became really tough to pull back". After a brief warm-up, Pandya was right on the money as he bowled nearly three overs to Evin Lewis. Roy led with a stunning knock, but despite losing only three wickets, Delhi Daredevils ended up needing 11 runs off the final over to be bowled by Mustafizur Rahman.

Having restricted MI to 147/8, SRH made heavy weather of a chase-able target but in the end rode Deepak Hooda's unbeaten 25-ball 32 to get past the line.

Rishabh Pant scored 47 runs with his willow. In his next over, Tewatia foxed Lewis by floating up a googly and drawing the mis-hit that was caught at mid off. The misfortune continued for Mumbai as they lost to Delhi Daredevils in an encounter that stretched to the last ball yet again.
