Roy rides Delhi home, Hyderbad beat Kolkata in IPL

IPL 2018 Host cities witness rise in traction for hotels flights

The IPL returned to the Pink City after 2013 but rain played spoilsport for the major part, forcing D/L method to come into play after the hosts were 153/5 in 17.5 overs when it started drizzling. Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis laying a strong platform for the reigning champions. Both had lost their previous two matches against different opponents. He failed to provide the team with good starts as an opener. DD moved up to sixth position after their win, while Mumbai found themselves at the bottom of the table after their third successive defeat. After figures of 3 for 23 and 4 for 23 in his first two matches, Markande went for 42 runs in three overs, well above the asking rate of the chase.

Iyer, was however, delighted with his side's first win this season.

Shreyas Iyer (27*) might collect a fair amount of flak for his strike-rate at the death but in the end the Daredevils scored a much needed win at the third time of asking. With MI's opening partnerships being 7 and 11 in the first two games, they gambled sending Yadav to open the innings with Lewis and he adapted well to the situation. "We were 10-15 runs short but still 180+ is a good score on any ground", said Yadav, who became the leading run-getter at this stage of the tournament. When Lewis departed, Ishan Kishan (44) stepped up to keep the runs flowing at the Wankhede Stadium. After a nightmarish start in the game, the Australian all-rounder repaid the faith that the team management had put in him when he was drafted into the playing XI in Chris Morris' place.

That Delhi did not allow their shoulders to drop after the initial mauling is commendable, and one wonders if the former KKR skipper's attitude towards the game is starting to rub off onto his teammates already. The Daredevils opted to replace one Durban-born batsman with another, and did it work wonders for them!

Roy and skipper Gautam Gambhir conjured up a 50-run stand for the first wicket.

Russian Federation calls chemical attack in Syria a 'fabrication'
Nikki Haley said: "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line". The medics said none of the patients were hurt by chemicals.

Amid claims English players are called out to the Indian Premier League to play a merely supporting cast-type role, Jason Roy went some way to silencing those critics on Saturday. Hardik Pandya who was doing fielding at Mid-off came running and took the catch.

MI lost one at home against Chennai Super Kings in the opener, then at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad at Hyderabad. Once again the victory eluded them on the final delivery of the match. Or an Avesh Khan for that matter.

Hardik Pandya is recovering well and is expected to return for Saturday's clash.

Playing in the cash-rich league is a dream for many worldwide players.
