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

Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 is about to complete one week and the action is surely heating up.

Mumbai Indians scored 194 for seven in 20 overs thanks mainly to good contributions from Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis and Ishan Kishan. The pitch condition is good and it is hoping for Mumbai Indians. The first game is between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals at 4 PM while the second between Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings will be played at 8 PM. Delhi have a quality team and with players like Gautam Gambhir, Glenn Maxwell, Chris Moris, there is talent and quality and the team just has to believe in themselves. It will be interesting to see the purple cap holder play today against the Gautam Gambhir-led DD. Both teams had their big positives in the spin bowling department with Mayank Markande for Mumbai and Rahul Tewatia for Delhi and will be expected to continue with their great form. "If spinners are brought on after the sixth over and bowl till the 15th over, and if they pick a maximum of two or three wickets in that period, they are doing an exceptional job for the team", Delhi left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem said during the pre-match conference yesterday. Though Roy smashed a four and a six off the first two deliveries, Mustafizur bowled three consecutive dots balls. Rohit Sharma along with Krunal and Hardik Pandya couldn't do much with the skipper departing for 18, Krunal for 11 and Hardik for 2. Ishan Kishan follwed it up with another crucial contribution as he balsted his way to 44 off just 23 balls.

The onslaught on the spin duo allowed DD to take a safer route against Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman and Krunal Pandya. Some quick wickets at the back end restricted the home side, but it was those at the top who contributed the lion's share, the opening trio combining for 75 per cent of Mumbai's total score.

Hooda finished unbeaten on 32 off 25 balls, which included a boundary and a six. This is Mumbai Indians' fastest Fifty in the tournament. Suryakumar Yadav score 41 runs off 20 balls and Evin Lewsi score 37 runs off 16 balls.

There were no boundaries for the next 14 balls, and it resulted in Lewis mistiming a googly from Rahul Tewatia and being caught at long-off. Boult opens the attack for DD. Expectations will be high from local boy Shreyas Iyer, apart from captain Gambhir, Rishabh Pant, Aussie Glenn Maxwell, Englishman Jason Roy and Kiwi Colin Munro. The slide also included a shambolic show towards the tail-end of the innings with the defending champions scoring only 27 runs off the last four overs while going on to lose three wickets.
