19:55 hrs IST: That’s it. Thank you for joining us. Until next time, it’s goodbye. Cheers!
Jason Roy (Man of the Match): “Was a good knock, but we came together as a team and showed what we’re capable of. Brought it back nicely wit the bowlers, took it right to the last game unfortunately. It’s a great place to bat, most stadiums around India are good places to bat.”
Gautam Gambhir (Delhi Daredevils captain): “Boult, Shami, tremendous effort, we thought they were going to get 230, we restricted them to 190. We thought they were 20-30 runs short. That itself was a positive. He’s(Roy) a class player.”
Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Indians captain): “Disappointed not to finish one of those three games. It was a slower pitch, we could have used the slower ball. Credit to Jason, a chanceless innings. Games like this happen. Very good start, couldn’t capitalise in the last five overs. We are not consistent in terms of how we want to take the innings through, not able to finish off games. We’ll learn from this and come back.

15:46 hrs IST: An IPL debut for Akila Dananjaya. A Daredevils debut for England’s Roy.
15:40 hrs IST: Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma(c), Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman, Akila Dananjaya
Delhi Daredevils: Jason Roy, Gautam Gambhir(c), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Vijay Shankar, Daniel Christian, Rahul Tewatia, Shahbaz Nadeem, Mohammed Shami, Trent Boult
15:30 hrs IST: Delhi Daredevils have won the toss and chose to field.
The hosts would especially hope for an end to the dismal run of skipper Rohit Sharma, who fell cheaply in both the games. Rohit’s form is crucial for Mumbai and with Lewis too not coming good, the opening partnership has been struggling to get going. The death bowling, especially from bowlers like Mustafizur Rehman and Jasprit Bumrah, must improve - and fast.
Delhi, on the other hand, also possess top batsmen but they too haven’t been able to perform to their potential till now. The bowlers, who have leaked runs aplenty, will also need to step up and strike regular blows to contain Mumbai’s strong batting line-up.
