Daredevils look to build on MI win in Gambhir's 'homecoming'

IPL: Delhi Daredevils register thrilling win over Mumbai Indians

None of Rohit Sharma, Pollard and the Pandya brothers fired, and Mumbai Indians went run-a-ball for the last three overs. Mumbai Indians had set themselves for a total around 240, but could only reach 194 because of a poor finish with the bat.

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.

Sunrisers' chase began on a shaky note as they lost both the openers inside the Powerplay. He failed to provide the team with good starts as an opener. A team that is three-time champion of the tournament and is now the defending champion, is not supposed to play like Mumbai has been doing so far this season. Two out of these three games went down till the last ball while the other was finished in the last second ball.

US Vice President Pence says NAFTA deal possible in several weeks
Pence said he was "very hopeful" that Mexico, Canada and the USA were close to an agreement on the negotiated trade pact. He warned that if it could not be overhauled to better protect USA interests, Washington would pull out of the pact.

Iyer, was however, delighted with his side's first win this season. Had Mustafizur Rahman caught two chances at short third man off Shreyas Iyer in the 17th over, the result might have been different, because with 16 required off 12 balls, Bumrah sent down an excellent 19th over that cost just five. Ishan Kishan added 44 to take the total to a healthy 194/7 from their allotted overs. Furthermore, the fans didn't expect such a start from the team who have put up a good squad together.

Given Mumbai's earlier dominance, a target of less than 200 kept Delhi's hopes of a fightback very much alive. The seasoned Mumbai batter also revealed that he was offered to open the innings less than 24 hours prior to the game. The Daredevils opted to replace one Durban-born batsman with another, and did it work wonders for them!

Not only was Roy's hitting as clean as a whistle, with even a mishit clearing the straight fence on one occasion, but his counter-attack also helped maintain the confidence in the Delhi camp throughout the chase despite the occasional wicket. Chris Lynn and Nitish Rana brought the momentum with their second-wicket stand of 39, before a red-hot Billy Stanlake cramped Rana on the cut - his most productive shot of the evening - and had him lift one to Manish Pandey's right at point. The swashbuckling Jamaican did not feature in Kings XI's opening victory but he will be desperate to show his former employers what they missed out on by not retaining him for 2018.
