Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils Live Cricket Score - 9th T20 Match - Summary

End of Over : 20.0 DD: 195/3

Rightly so, Jason Roy is the Player of the Match. He just took the chase by the scruff of the neck and largely looked untroubled. So, that's it from us from this game, but don't you go anywhere. The second game of this Super Saturday is about to get underway. Hyderabad will field first against Kolkata. It's something you wouldn't want to miss. Switch tabs to follow that game. See ya there!

19.6 1

DELHI WIN! What an anticlimax! Mind you, the winning run wasn't in the most convincing manner. Rahman yet again lets out a slower length ball, Roy swishes across the line. Gets a top edge. But since most of the fielders are inside the circle, the ball clears mid off running backwards. That enables the batters to cross and hug each other in celebration. So, the away team gets off the mark in this tournament. They win by 7 wickets.

DOT! On a length angling away, Roy looks to guide it away through short third man. Seems to have missed it as the ball goes to the keeper. They appeal to no avail. DRS used. Snicko shows nothing as there is a gap between bat and ball. Hence, Roy stays on.

19.4 0

Another one! Slower and fuller outside off, Roy just cannot get bat to that. Misses. Do Mumbai and Rahman have it in them to defend this?

19.3 0

Well bowled! Slower in pace, Roy goes through with his pull before the ball comes to him. Where was this ball before, asks Simon Doull on air. That secret will go unanswered, sir.

19.2 6

SIX! Game, set, match! Jason Roy has done it on his own. Rahman lets out a length ball in line of the stumps. Roy walks across and helps it over the fine leg fence for half a dozen. Wow!

19.1 4

Knock FOUR off the target! This is bowled full and angled away from Roy. He reaches out and carves it over extra covers for a boundary. 7 needed from 5 balls.

End of Over : 19 5 Runs DD: 184/3
18.6 0

Bumrah ends well! Another slower delivery well outside off, Iyer can do nothing about that.

18.5 0

Very full outside off, it was a slower one. Iyer reaches out to guide it through point but misses. Jasprit asks the umpire for a caught behind but gets a shake of head in response.

18.4 1

Very full on off, smashed down to long off for one.

18.3 2

Roy is riding his luck now. He was outfoxed by Bumrah's slower one. Looked to sweep it but got a top edge. The ball landed in the no man's land behind the bowler, enabling them to collect two. 12 off 9 needed.

18.2 1

Bumrah escapes this times. Bowls a juicy full toss but Iyer hits it straight to deep mid-wicket for just one.

18.1 1

Slower delivery at a fuller length, Roy carves it through point for one.


Winless title-holders Mumbai Indians and an equally sluggish Delhi Daredevils will be eager to notch up their first points when they clash in the Indian Premier League at the Wankhede Stadium. While Mumbai went down to Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad by identical one-wicket margins in edge-of-the-seat thrillers, Gautam Gambhir-led Delhi succumbed to Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals in their first two games.


Mumbai’s batting line-up which boasts of attacking players like skipper Rohit Sharma, West Indians Elvin Lewis, Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav has failed to fire in unison in the first two games. The hosts would especially hope for an end to the dismal run of skipper Rohit, who fell cheaply in both the games after a largely forgettable tour of South Africa and some modest run in the tri-series in Sri Lanka prior to the commencement of the T20 League.


Rohit’s form is crucial for Mumbai and with Lewis too not coming good, the opening partnership has been struggling to get going. Mumbai could look at promoting Krunal Pandya up the order if his injured brother Hardik, who did not play in the game against Sunrisers last night, again misses tomorrow’s match.


On the plus side for MI, Yadav has been among runs and his role will be a key element for the team, especially if the team loses early wickets. In both the games MI lacked big partnerships. Among the bowlers, rookie leg spinner Mayank Markande has been brilliant in the two games. His seven wickets, including the four scalps that he captured in a low-scoring tie against Sunrisers at Hyderabad last night, earned him the purple cap.


The Punjab-born wrist spinner has been relying mostly on googlies as his wicket taking balls and his performance would be key to Mumbai’s success. Markande, however, has lacked adequate support from the other bowlers – pacers Muztifizur Rehman, Jasprit Bumrah, Pradeep Sangwan and Krunal. Muztifizur and Bumrah are some of the best death bowlers in the world, but they went for runs and would be keen to do better on the match day.


Delhi, on the other hand, also possess top batsmen but they too haven’t been able to perform to their potential till now. Expectations will be high from local boy Shreyas Iyer, apart from captain Gambhir, Rishabh Pant, Aussie Glenn Maxwell, Englishman Jason Roy and Kiwi Colin Munro.


If they get going they can dismantle any bowling attack and Mumbai’s won’t be an exception. The visitors could also bring in some new comers in place of laggards.


Delhi bowlers, who have leaked runs aplenty, will also need to step up and strike regular blows to contain Mumbai’s strong batting line-up. The role of spinners, especially leggie Amit Mishra, will be crucial. The dew factor may not play a significant role as it’s an evening game.
