Mumbai and Delhi Clash to open their Account

England's Jason Roy made an unbeaten 91 off 53 balls as Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians off the final ball of the match in the Indian Premier League.

In the build-up, this was a clash between an established powerhouse and a team full of promising talent; in reality, it was a scrap between two sides searching for their first win in the season.

"Obviously nice to win three in a row, and this surface required some adapting, but the real highlight was our fielding tonight", Hyderabad captain Williamson said at the post match presentation. However, Jason Roy (91*) made his intentions very clear from the outset.

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.

Mumbai's top order, comprising Suryakumar Yadav (53), Evin Lewis (48) and Ishan Kishan (44), combined well to take the Indians' total to 166. "But we knew if we stayed till the end we will finish the game", explained Iyer.

Bhunvneshwar Kumar (3-26) was the pick of an impressive bowling unit on his return from injury, though Shakib and towering Australia seamer Billy Stanlake, who found real pace and carry, also impressed with figures of 2-21.

Southern Virginia continued to dominate in the third frame, scoring six more times to bring the unanswered goal streak to 13. The Panthers (1-8, 0-5 NWFAC) fell on Senior Night Thursday despite collecting a pair of doubles victories.

The young sensation also had a word of praise for the Mumbai's Mayank Markande who picked up four wickets in the losing cause.

Saturday was the Bengali New Year and although Shakib missed out on celebrating in his homeland Bangladesh, Kolkata is a really good place for celebrating the Bengali New Year as well.

And as it turned out, Delhi Daredevils accelerated in the game via the middle overs - with the bat and the ball - a period which proved to be the gamechanger in the match.

Defending champions Mumbai Indians hold the edge as they have a better record against Delhi Daredevils but it does not guarantee a win as the Twenty20 format has scant respect for form and fame. Having thundered to 100 halfway in the ninth over, 36 runs off the last five overs was where Mumbai lost the game. "We did not start that well with the ball, but we brought it back extremely well, and then with the bat", Roy told Pant in an interaction for IPLT20.com.

About his own batting, Iyer said he has of late become choosy at the beginning. I usually like to take some time and build my innings. Or do you make use of the start and look to play a longer innings?

But on paper, Bangalore have a strong batting line up what with their top four including Kohli, AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock and Brendon McCullum.
