So it's three straight loses for Mumbai to begin the season. Don't get carried away though. MUM have the knack of bouncing back strongly from tough situations. It's a double-header day, so it's time for all of us to move to the Eden Gardens for the battle between the Kolkata and Hyderabad. See you there!
Jason Roy - Player of the Match: It was a good knock . We came together and showed what we are capable off. We brought them back nicely and restricted them to a chaseable total. It is a great place to bat and great place to play cricket. New ball skids on nicely and my intention was to play strong attacking shots. Just a little bit of nerves in the final overs, I made it harder than I should have. I am spending a lot of time playing spin in the nets and trying a way to score runs against spin.Gautam Gambhir: I thought that it was a serious win. It was a tremendous effort from the bowlers to drag them back to 195. At one time we were thinking they might get 230. The way bowlers bowled, a lot of credit goes to them. We knew under lights the ball will come better onto the bat better. Rahul Tewatia was brilliant. The last 5 overs we were tremendous, both Shami and Dan Christian were terrific. The mood in the dressing at the innings break was good as we expected the opposition to get 230 but restricted them around 190. Guys were pumped up as they knew 180-190 is chaseable on this ground. Roy showed everyone that he is a class player specially in this format. (On playing next match at Eden) We got to try and take it as any other game. I will try not to be emotional.Rohit: Disappointing not to finish the (three) games. We had a good score on the board today. We could have bowled smarter and used the slower ball better, but credit to Jason Roy for the way he batted. We got off to a great start with the bat, but didn't capitalize towards the end. There is room for improvement in the fielding department. The catches we dropped could have gone either way. We certainly have the guys to pull things back. We never wanted to lose games like this because we all know it's critical to win these games. We need to regroup, come out and do better. We have definitely played good cricket in the last 3 games, hopefully we can learn from the negatives and come back stronger against BLR.
That was a chaotic final over. 11 needed, the first two yield 10 runs and just as you thought MUM were out of it, Fizz bowls a hat-trick of dots and almost makes the team believe that they can push this to the Super Over! Phew! But hey, that was some tremendous batting from Roy and Co. To be honest, DEL won the game when they took 5 wickets for 21 runs towards the end of MUM's batting effort. The hosts looked set to cross 215-220, but they struggled when the bowlers took pace off the ball. DEL needed a good start in the chase and Roy got them off to a flier. Pant looked determined coming in at No. 3 and combined well with Roy. Although DEL lost a couple of quick wickets, Roy and Iyer took the side home.
Can Fizz eke out a dot ball? Rohit is smiling. DEL can't lose, but this game can be forced into a Super Over. The field is up for the final ball
Third man in, square leg, fine leg back
Fizz - the best pacer for MUM has 10 to defend. He's been bowling well. Can MUM pull off a miracle? Long discussion between Ro, Pollard and Krunal. Hardik joins us well. Interestingly, Fizz is just watching from a bit of a distance. Is Krunal trying to convince his captain for the final over. Surely got to be Fizz! The cutters have been gripping the pitch. Thankfully it is Fizz for the final over. Prayers running long in the stands.
Bumrah aborts his run-up last minute
This is turning out to be a good over. No boundaries yet. Can he finish well. 11 needed off 8
Just 16 needed off 12 now
Mustafizur Rahman [2.0-0-7-1] is back into the attack
Jasprit Bumrah [2.0-0-11-0] is back into the attack
Time-out time. Four overs to go, Fizz and Bumrah have two each, but DEL have attacked the others to ensure that they don't have to go that hard to get the remaining 35 runs. Ones and twos and the occasional boundary will do.
47 needed off 30
Akila Dananjaya [3.0-0-36-0] is back into the attack
Krunal Pandya has changed things a bit here with 2-0-9-2. Mumbai need wickets and hope Delhi hit the panic button.
Shreyas Iyer, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Krunal Pandya to Maxwell, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Aah! Leggie vs Maxi, this is going to be interesting
Mayank Markande [2.0-0-27-0] is back into the attack
This is the opening MUM badly wanted. 76 needed off 48, still easily doable but the hosts need quick wickets to stop DEL.
Glenn Maxwell, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Krunal Pandya to Pant, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Krunal Pandya, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack
Jasprit Bumrah [1.0-0-2-0] is back into the attack
This onslaught has forced Rohit to bring Bumrah early
Roy has been caught here and the soft signal is OUT! However, this clearly bounced, hence the decision has to be over-turned!
Akila Dananjaya [1.0-0-12-0] is back into the attack
Time-out! Markande who has taken 7 wickets in the first 2 matches has conceded 10 runs today.
Mayank Markande, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack
Inspite of that 21-run over, Delhi need a required run rate of 10.14 No boundary scored since that Gambhir dismissal. This is what wickets can do...
Youngster Pant to face his first ball now...
Rishabh Pant, left handed bat, comes to the crease
Mustafizur to Gambhir, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Hardik Pandya [1.0-0-11-0] is back into the attack
Mustafizur Rahman, left-arm fast medium, comes into the attack
Jasprit Bumrah, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack
Akila Dananjaya, right-arm off break, comes into the attack
Roy and Gambhir are at the crease. Roy is on strike. Hardik Pandya will open the attack
