Jason Roy delivers match-winning innings for Delhi Daredevils

IPL 2018 Opening match record highest ever viewership

Jason Roy smashed an unbeaten 91 as Delhi Daredevils defeated hosts Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in a last-ball thriller in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Mumbai yesterday.

Mumbai Indians scored 194-7 after a 102 run opening partnership between Suryakumar Yadav (53 off 32) and Evin Lewis (48 off 28).

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.

Roy duly stepped up, working well with a trio of partners to lead the charge and reach Delhi's target with the final ball, earning their first win as the Indians' misery goes on. "It was defendable when we started". 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.

KKR made three changes with U-19 World Cup winning batsman Shubman Gill, Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson and U-19 World Cup seamer Shivam Mavi replacing Rinku Singh, England all-rounder Tom Curran and out of form Karnataka medium fast bowler R. Vinay Kumar. Mumbai's Hardik Pandya had no answer for the rampaging-Brit, the allrounder leaking 32 runs from his two overs and giving Roy the flawless start to capitalise on. "Maximum time you will see that if spinners take two-three wickets in the middle period, they are doing an exceptional job for the team". "We are not consistent in terms of how we want to take the innings through, not able to finish off games". A team that is three-time champion of the tournament and is now the defending champion, is not supposed to play like Mumbai has been doing so far this season.

Gambhir also lauded Roy's effort with the bat, calling him "a class player". Roy was efficient in using his feet to meet the pitch of the ball, as well as using the depth of the crease while shifting back.

It is possible that Mumbai Indians aren't buying any of the "close defeats" hype.

Pollard and Hardik took spectacular catches in the deep to dismiss Pant and Glenn Maxwell (13), respectively.

Shreyas Iyer: Nobody in the Delhi playing eleven is familiar with the conditions at the Wankhede as Iyer, who learnt all his cricket in Mumbai.

Mustafizur nearly took the tie into super over after bowling three dot ball and with 1 run needed of final delivery, Roy managed to get bat on ball to hit the winning run.
