7.39pm The defending champions have lost three games in a row. There’s a smile, or something close to that, on Gautam Gambhir’s face. That’s because the Daredevils have their first win of the season. It was a nail-biter, an absolutely terrific game of cricket. Daredevils started well, then Mumbai fought back, then the Daredevils eventually prevailed, led primarily by Jason Roy’s match-winning 91 off 53.
There were some drop catches, there were some stunning catches, there was a lot, but in the end, it’s another high-scoring thriller.
At the Commonwealth Games today, even the crowd joined in celebrating the gold won by a 35-year-old, mother of three. Looking ahead to the Tokyo Olympics, Mary Kom later said she would compete if she is “super fit till 2020”.
Jason Roy is the Man of the Match: “Was a good knock, but we came together as a team and showed what we’re capable of. Brought it back nicely wit the bowlers, took it right to the last game unfortunately. It’s a great place to bat, most stadiums around India are good places to bat.
Gautam Gambhir: “Boult, Shami, tremendous effort, we thought they were going to get 230, we restricted them to 190. We thought they were 20-30 runs short. That itself was a positive. He’s(Roy) a class player. We’re a dangerous side if we keep going like that.”
Rohit Sharma: “Disappointed not to finish one of those three games. It was a slower pitch, we could have used the slower ball. Credit to Jason, a chanceless innings. Games like this happen. Very good start, couldn’t capitalise in the last five overs. We are not consistent in terms of how we want to take the innings through, not able to finish off games. We’ll learn from this and come back. There is room for improvement with our fielding.”
|19.6||1|| Mustafizur Rahman to Roy it clears cover, and they complete the run. Delhi celebrate. Yes yes, it’s another cutter outside off. Roy swings again, like he has been doing and the ball lobs off the outside half, but because every one is in, the ball clears the infield. And Delhi Daredevils complete a thrilling seven-wicket win against Mumbai. 1 run |
1 off 1. No bat on ball for the last three balls. Mumbai have found their voice again. Kishan has taken his right glove off again, like day before. Another cutter?
|19.5||0|| Mustafizur Rahman to Roy 125 kph, shortish delivery outside off, Roy misses another dab and it’s another dot. Mumbai want to review. No bat. It’s a dot. no run |
Now 1 off 2
|19.4||0|| Mustafizur Rahman to Roy a slower cutter again, outside off, the ball cuts nicely off the pitch and Roy misses a swing. no run |
1 off 3.
|19.3||0|| Mustafizur Rahman to Roy a slower ball outside off, that’s the length that will cut off the pitch. Roy makes no contact. no run |
1 off 4.
|19.2||6|| Mustafizur Rahman to Roy and that’s the game! Gambhir is pumped. Mumbai are despondent. What an inning sfrom Roy, it’s the same shot that Jadhav played to get six in game 1. A full delivery on middle and leg, flicked away over fine leg for six. Such power in those wrists. SIX |
7 off 7
|19.1||4|| Mustafizur Rahman to Roy smashed for four! Full and wide from Mustafizur, it’s not a bad option but it’s slow because he’s looking for the cutter. With that length, it won’t cut. Drilled over cover for four. FOUR |
Third man, backward point, cover and square leg are in. Rest are out.
Okay, okay! Settle down. 39 overs of slogging, it comes down to six balls. 11 off 6. Mustafizur has the ball. Roy has had a terrific Daredevils debut, but such is the humidity of Mumbai that he will be fatigued.
Rohit, Mustafizur, Pollard and the Pandya brothers have a long chat near the bowler’s end
