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 (IPL) in Mumbai yesterday.
Opener Roy made the mockery of a listless Mumbai Indians bowling attack as he hammered six fours and as many sixes in his 53 ball knock to help Delhi overhaul the home team’s 194/7 for their first win of the season. It was the third successive loss for MI and they remain without a point after three matches.
Hyderabad beat Kolkata
Captain Kane Williamson led from the front with a solid fifty as Sunrisers Hyderabad shrugged off initial wobble to beat Kolkata Knight Riders by five wickets in their IPL match yesterday.
Williamson struck exactly fifty off 44 deliveries to help Sunrisers chase down the small target of 139 after the visiting side were reduced to 55 for 3 in the ninth over at the Eden Gardens. Opener Wriddhiman Saha and Shakib Al Hasan made useful contributions of 24 and 27 respectively.
Williamson’s 59-run stand with Shakib for the fourth wicket eased the pressure on the Sunrisers as they reached 139 for 5 in 19 overs to notch up their third win.
