MI vs DD Match 9, IPL 2018
MI: 194/7; Suryakumar 53 Lewis 48; Tewatia 2/36
The first of the Saturday doubleheader started with some incredible hitting, as Mumbai Indians’ openers put on 102-run partnership in 9 overs. MI decided to re-shuffle their batting order, sending Suryakumar Yadav in with Evin Lewis to open the innings.
The Mumbai batsman did not let go of the opportunity to bat at the top and helped MI to register their best Powerplay score in all IPL – 84. Suryakumar made a blazing 53 off 32 balls, while Lewis scored 48 off 28 deliveries.
The firework show did not get over there, at the fall of Lewis at the score of 102, Ishan Kishan entered and immediately took the attack to the opposition.
Ishan Kishan made 44 runs off 23 balls, but the latter batters could not chip in many, and Delhi managed to make a comeback, restricting the MI batting to 194 runs when anything above 200 was on the cards.
Tewatia, Christian and Boult all picked two wickets each for Delhi Daredevils.
