IPL 2018: Delhi Daredevils Vs Mumbai Indians Preview And Prediction

Adjust Comment Print

What's hurting Mumbai is that though their new squad has plenty of match-winners, none, barring the Bhatinda boy Mayank Markande seem to have found their mojo.

The Next Stop: Delhi will get a chance to get consecutive victories when they meet Chris Lynn's Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday whilst the winless-Mumbai take on Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday to try and get the ball rolling for IPL 11. Against Kings XI Punjab he scored freely and was looking good against Rajasthan as well, but wasn't able to go on to make a big score.

The form book hasn't been too kind for Delhi Daredevils batsmen but it can all turn around very quickly in the IPL; Gautam Gambhir's team will be mindful of that. Trent Boult, Dan Christian and Rahul Tewatia picked up 2 wickets each, where Mohammed Shami bagged 1.

Defending Indian Premier League champions Mumbai Indians continued their dismal start to the 2018 tournament with a seven-wicket to Delhi Daredevils. 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.

The conditions at Wankhede are considered to be well suited for batting but it could also be an option for either team to bowl a few overs from their spinners early in the game. Later young Ishan Kishan scored 44 off just 23 balls.

Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad bowler Rashid Khan said his team did well to restrict Mumbai under the 150 mark.

Markande, however, has lacked adequate support from the other bowlers - pacers Mustafizur Rehman, Jasprit Bumrah, Pradeep Sangwan and Krunal.

Hooda finished unbeaten on 32 off 25 balls, which included a boundary and a six. A long break ensued before Roy hit one over the in-field on the offside to eventually give Delhi two points. But as they say - you never know in the game of cricket, we shall wait and watch who triumphs. Evin Lewis fell after 48 off 28 balls with 4 sixes and four fours.

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. While he shared a 50-run partnership with skipper Gautam Gambhir (15) for the opening wicket, the opener also stitched a crucial 69 and 60-run partnership with Rishabh Pant (47) and Shreyas Iyer (27) respectively. Mumbai lost five wickets for 21 runs, failing to build on a strong base.
