Mumbai: Woman Alleges Molestation During IPL Match; Accused Arrested Woman Allegedly Molested in Wankhede During Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils IPL Match

At the end of a terrific run chase, the skirmish between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils delivered what everyone at the Wankhede Stadium had waited for; an edge-of-the-seat thriller. Yadav, slotted in as opener, struck 53 off just 32 balls and his partner Evin Lewis finally joined the IPL party with a bellligerent 48 off just 28 balls.

Despite having ample hitting power the Indians innings fell away a little with Christain removing Kieron Pollard first ball to leave them 166 for 4 in the 16th over.

Instead, Mumbai Indians managed to put up only 194 on the board despite a quickfire 23-ball 44 from the young Ishan Kishan. The lull was worsened by Suryakumar's dismissal shortly after he had scored his second fifty in 45 IPL innings. Out of the 18 balls bowled, seven deliveries either went to the boundary or over it. It is a chance for both the teams to open their account at the points table.

Rohit Sharma, MI: We have to bat well and post a challenging total.

Rahul Tewatia, Trent Boult, Daniel Christian and Mohammed Shami may have been expensive, but with each of the bowlers taking crucial wickets, Delhi were able to restrict the hosts. "The comeback was fantastic by the bowlers and hopefully we keep continuing doing the same things", said local lad Shreyas Iyer who scored a modest 20-ball 27 on the night but more importantly held fort at one end as Jason Roy (91*) steered the visitors to victory. However, with the former's failures in the previous games, Gambhir and Co may have run out of patience and chose to give the English opener a chance.

After putting on a 50-run stand with Gambhir, Roy took the back seat as Rishabh Pant smashed 47 off 25 balls. DD were 119/1 after 11.5 overs when the big breakthrough came in. MI also rested their another star player Hardik Pandya in the second game due to an injury and would like to bring him back in the XI. Iyer got together with Roy for a crisis chat before the last delivery of the game, and told the English batsman to keep his shape.

He finished with 91 not out in 53 balls (6x4, 6x6) and the match went right to the wire with DD scoring the winning run on the last ball. "It's a long tournament, we just need one win, then the momentum will be built from there".

This is Mumbai's third successive defeat and leaves captain Sharma and the team under pressure.

In the build-up, this was a clash between an established powerhouse and a team full of promising talent; in reality, it was a scrap between two sides searching for their first win in the season.
