Mumbai once again finish on the wrong end of a nail-biter. They will certainly look back at the last six overs, where they capitulated with the bat. Their bowling, barring Mustafizur and Bumrah’s second spell, was ordinary.
Rohit is also under pressure to get runs on the board. Jason Roy was magnificent with the bat and showed nerves of steel under pressure. Delhi are up and away. As for Mumbai, they have been here before and know more than any other team the formula to turn things around from here.
Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets Another heart-stopping finish. This time, Roy gets bat on ball and it goes over the infield and the batsman get the run that takes them over the line. Terrific contest that was a death-knell for the bowlers. Hope we get to see more of an even contest at Eden Gardens later in the day. Roy remains unbeaten on 91.
Rohit Sharma: Disappointing not to finish the [last few games] games. We had a good score on the board. We could have bowled smarter and used the slower balls better, but credit to Jason Roy. We got off to a great start with the bat, but didn’t capitalize towards the end. [When asked about the dropped catches] There is room for improvement in the fielding department.
