Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in IPL match

It was a unusual, albeit entertaining, match by some accounts. We were waiting for this win, and especially against Mumbai Indians, it's a great comeback from the team. In reply, Delhi Daredevils enjoyed the upperhand for a large part of the innings. Although the equation was simple, the final run was not with the Bangladeshi quick bowling three dot balls in a row to leave Roy needing one run from the final ball with pressure mounting. In between those two deliveries, Roy compiled an innings of relentless, clean hitting that took Daredevils to their first win of the season. Delhi needed one run off the final ball and the Englishman connected it and completed the run to seal the victory along with Shreyas Iyer (27*) at the other end.

Where did MI lose it? Delhi batsmen did what Mumbai batsmen failed to do. The pair added another eighteen runs before disaster struck. "We know he's hard to pick, so if he just bowls that length and pace where he asks batsmen to make decisions, we know it's going to be hard for them and he's bamboozling very good players at the moment".

Ishan Kishan propped up the innings again, a blitzy 23-ball 44 giving Mumbai the platform for the big launch. This time, however, they couldn't recover. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma didn't open for the home side with Suryakumar Yadav stepping in for the skipper along with Evin Lewis.

Delhi's chase was all about Roy and his clean-hitting. Jason Roy did that to pedantic perfection last evening at Wankhede Stadium. However, with the former's failures in the previous games, Gambhir and Co may have run out of patience and chose to give the English opener a chance. KKR will now take on Gautam Gambhir's Delhi Daredevils at the Eden Gardens on Monday while the Sunrisers will Kings XI Punjab in Mohali on April 19.

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, have responded to the attack. Putin added that the strike had a "destructive influence on the entire system of global relations".

How did DD plan their chase?

Mumbai's Mayank Markande didn't try too hard. The legspinner was only introduced after the powerplay, but that did not deter Pant and Roy. The SRH bowlers were supported admirably by their fielders, typified by two stunning catches from Manish Pandey, a former Knight Rider himself, the second of which helped remove the unsafe Andre Russell. Rohit showed a peculiar lack of urgency, Kieron Pollard was bowled for a golden duck, and even the Pandya brothers - Krunal and Hardik - were kept quiet.

Although Curran took two wickets in the game, he ended up being on the expensive side as he conceded 39 runs in 3 overs.

Hyderabad sits on top of the table with three wins from three games, while Mumbai has suffered a third successive loss in the last over.

Taliban seize district in Afghanistan's Ghazni province
Confirming the report, Shindand District Governor Shukrullah Shaker said the attack took place in Larzanak area of the district. Rahmani said the attackers planted mines to stop reinforcements from coming to help the government forces fend off the attack.

Not really. Perhaps if they had, Mumbai would've gotten to the total they set their sights on. Glenn Maxwell was their best bowlers in terms of economy with three overs for 21, but everyone else went for atleast 9 an over.

While Suryakumar was slick and innovative - he found the third-man boundary with a late uppercut off Trent Boult and the deftest glide to a yorker from Mohammed Shami - Lewis used his strength to punish Daredevils' poor lengths.

Where do the teams go from here? Delhi travel to Kolkata (16th) for their fourth straight away fixture.
