IPL: Struggling KKR look to get together against buoyant Delhi

Highlights as Jason Roy smashed a blistering 91 off 53 balls to fire the Delhi Daredevils to a first win of IPL 11

Mumbai: Jason Roy smashed an unbeaten 91 as Delhi Daredevils defeated hosts Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in a last-ball thriller in the Indian Premier League here on Saturday. "It was a key partnership between you (Pant) and me".

During the first inning and before the start of the second inning the match was interrupted a couple of times due to rain.

The belief was strengthened when Rishabh Pant went after leg-spinner Mayank Markande and scored a 25-ball 47 with half a dozen 4s and two sixes. However, Jason Roy (91*) made his intentions very clear from the outset.

The Aussie Pack: Aussies featured only on Ricky Ponting's side for this match, Dan Christian seeping 35 runs from his three overs but picking up two vital scalps back-to-back. "We know it has been done in the past as well, a few games don't take away anything".

That appeared a more distant proposition in the first hour at Southampton when Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek scored for the hosts. In the league every game you have to stay there. "So, we have to do it, like we have all season".

Bhunvneshwar Kumar (3-26) was the pick of an impressive bowling unit on his return from injury, though Shakib and towering Australia seamer Billy Stanlake, who found real pace and carry, also impressed with figures of 2-21. SRH's bowlers put in another disciplined bowling performance to restrict another team for a below-par total (138), which their batsmen chased down with an over to spare despite another hiccup, not like the one they suffered against Mumbai Indians, though. Iyer failed to score off the last two balls of the 19 over, but said that he and Roy were confident of scoring the necessary 11 runs in the final over. Why else would they need to make some drastic changes?Of all the tinkering they've done, the one that worked out well was to send Suryakumar Yadav to open the innings.

3 Number of consecutive wins for Sunrisers Hyderabad - their best sequence at the start of a season. Roy responded to the challenge of 11 needed off six balls by hitting Mustafizur for a four and a six, but swung and missed at the next three balls.

Apart from Ishan, who played quick-fire cameo of 23-ball 44, and Rohit, no other Mumbai batter was able to survive for long and went back cheaply to finish at 194/7 in their allotted 20 overs. "I figured that if I gave myself some time I could cover it up. We can learn many things from this match, especially in the batting department", he said after the match. "I just asked him to hold your position and just smash the ball". Depends on player to player. So a team can help the players who were just sitting idle on the bench.

But on paper, Bangalore have a strong batting line up what with their top four including Kohli, AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock and Brendon McCullum.
