Shreyas Iyer hails Delhi Daredevils' comeback vs Mumbai Indians in IPL 2018

  • Sunrisers Hyderabad pip Mumbai Indians by 1 wicket off the last ball in a thrilling IPL encounter

"The comeback was wonderful by the bowlers and hopefully we keep continuing doing the same things", said local lad Shreyas Iyer who scored a modest 20-ball 27 on the night but more importantly held fort at one end as Jason Roy (91*) steered the visitors to victory.

It was a odd, albeit entertaining, match by some accounts.

Sunrisers Hyderabad panicked and flailed in a chase again, but nowhere near as much as they had against Mumbai Indians on Thursday. In reply, Delhi Daredevils enjoyed the upperhand for a large part of the innings. Roy put the game to rest with a four and six off the first two balls, but keeping with the trend of the game, the next three deliveries were dots. When the score was 194-7 after 20, they must have thought the match was theirs to win.

Where did MI lose it?

Knight Riders made all the team changes that were demanded of them: Vinay Kumar was left out along with Rinku Singh, and the teenage duo of top-order bat Shubman Gill and seamer Shivam Mavi came in. The pair added another eighteen runs before disaster struck.

On the brakes being applied in the middle overs We were 10-15 runs short, but a 180+ score is a good score on any ground. After conceding 18 runs to Evin Lewis in his first over, he roared back to have both Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard bowled from consecutive deliveries. This time, however, they couldn't recover.

Both the openers, SA Yadav and E Lewis fired and scored 53 runs and 48 runs respectively giving Mumbai Indians the kind of start they were looking for.

Delhi's chase was all about Roy and his clean-hitting.

Amid claims English players are called out to the Indian Premier League to play a merely supporting cast-type role, Jason Roy went some way to silencing those critics on Saturday. Whereas, Delhi never had a chance of holding the trophy and is gunning to win the coveted title under veteran opener Gautam Gambhir's guidance. A few games with no wins doesn't take away anything. His seven wickets, including the four scalps that he captured in a low-scoring tie against Sunrisers at Hyderabad last night, earned him the purple cap.

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. The only hiccup for Daredevils was the cheap exit of Glenn Maxwell in the 14th over. He said "Yesterday while we were coming back to the hotel he (captain Rohit Sharma) said we would love if you open the innings as you have played a lot of cricket here and you are most experienced".
