Rohit seems disappointed

"Disappointing not to finish the games. We had a good score on the board. We could have bowled smarter and used the slower ball better, but credit to Jason Roy for the way he batted. We got off to a great start with the bat, but didn't capitalize towards the end. There is room for improvement in the fielding department. The catches we dropped could have gone either way. We certainly have the guys to pull things back in the remaining. We never wanted to lose games like this because we all know it's critical to win this games. We need to regroup, come out and do better. We have definitely played good cricket in the last 3 games, hopefully we can learn from the negatives and come back stronger against RCB," he said after the match

DD win

Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets. Jason Roy gets some bat on that last ball and he gets a single to end the match. DD grab their first win in the match while Mi are still winless in the tournament

19:36 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Jason Roy misses three deliveries on the trot after getting 10 from the first two. DD now need 1 off 1

19:18 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Two dropped catches in that over and you can't afford that especially when it's Jason Roy at the crease. Mustafizur is the culprit on both the occasions who was stationed at short third man

19:12 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Delhi Daredevils have maintained a brilliant scoring rate in this chase. They are 160/3 in 16 overs with Jason Roy and Shreyas Iyer out there in the middle. Roy is in terrific form while Iyer too can chip in with some strokes

19:03 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Hardik Pandya takes a blinder in the deep to get rid off Glenn Maxwell. Krunal Pandya has his second wicket and DD lose three for 136

18:56 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Kieron Pollard takes a stunner at long off to dismiss Rishabh Pant. DD are 119/2. Pant came down the track against Krunal Pandya but didn't time the ball properly and Pollard completed a brilliant catch running towards his left

18:47 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
DD in command

Despite losing skipper Gautam Gambhir, Delhi Daredevils batsmen Rishabh Pant and Jason Roy have continued their form. Both the batsmen have been scoring runs at a quick rate as DD are 104/1 after 10

18:30 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
DD 53/1 after powerplay overs

Delhi Daredevils haven't quite got the explosive start that Mumbai Indians did in the powerplay overs. After 6 overs, DD are 53/1. As long as Jason Roy is there in the middle, DD will remain hopeful. Rishabh Pant is out there supporting him

18:24 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Gautam Gambhir gone for 15

Gautam Gambhir is gone for 15 and Mustafizur does the magic in typical Fizz fashion. Gambhir was struggling to find his way through and his misery is put to rest eventually. Short of length around the off stump and Gambhir goes for the pull. Splices it and it is an extremely simple catch for Rohit Sharma. DD 50/1 after 5.1 overs

18:22 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Hardik Pandya is back into the attack and Jason Roy is enjoying his return to the bowling crease. Gautam Gambhir alleviates some pressure from himself as well. But Roy does the bigger damage with twin sixes and a four. One six goes 96 metres - better his previous hit. It also brings up Delhi Daredevils' 50

18:16 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Gautam Gambhir under pressure

Gautam Gambhir is under pressure now as number of dot balls accumulate. Unable to relax his arms here and get the necessary boundaries at this crucial juncture in the game. Need a strong start to get to this target with ease in the end. Delhi Daredevils are 29/0 after 4 overs

18:08 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Jason Roy thrashes Dananjaya

Akila Dananjaya concedes his first IPL six in the second over of DD's chase. It also happens to be 95m long and falls out of the park. Some hit from Jason Roy. Continues his rampage with another boundary. DD 23/0 after 2 overs

18:04 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Jason Roy with a 95 metres six - third biggest of the season. Comes down the track to Dananjaya and smacks him for a six. This has gone out of the stadium. WHAT A HIT! This is some shot by the England player. 

18:02 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Hardik Pandya is unhappy

Hardik Pandya with terrible line and length on the last ball off the first over and it goes for a boundary off Gambhir's bat. Pandya is fuming with himself. Shortish delivery on Gambhir's pads and simply clips it away off his hips. DD 11/0 after 1 over

17:59 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Delhi Daredevils resume chase

Delhi Daredevils get the chase underway with Gautam Gambhir and Jason Roy. Need 195 to win. Gambhir didn't bat against Rajasthan the other day so he's out there at the top of the order now. Roy's presence could well help DD get a brisk start

17:43 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Mumbai Indians score 194/7 after 20 overs

Mumbai Indians finish with 194/7 after the 20 overs. They would be happy with how things have finished considering how they began. MI had crossed the 100-run mark in the 9th over. 94 runs in the next 10 overs to contain what was a sure shot 200-plus target 

17:37 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Hardik Pandya gone for 2

Hardik Pandya trying to go for a big shot only finds Shreyas Iyer in the deep. He walks after scoring just 2 runs. Boult on the attack and he gets an off cutter, Hardik doesn't quite get the contact on the slog and hands a catch to Iyer. MI are 187/7

17:33 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Krunal Pandya gone for 11

Krunal Pandya walks back after a lucky decision for Delhi Daredevils. This has been a complete turnaround in the last four overs. Krunal tried to shift away from the off stump and get the scoop. But a bat-pad goes up in the air and falls kindly for Rahul Tewatia to take. Umpire says not out so DD review. Krunal gone for 11 and MI are 185/6 in 19th over

17:27 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Rohit Sharma gone for 18

Big wicket for Delhi Daredevils to apply brakes on this attempted Mumbai Indians surge right at the death. Rohit Sharma falls to Trent Boult for 18 from 15 balls. Off cutter from Boult away from Rohit's hitting zone. Went after it and only ends up slicing it for Roy to take. Comfortable catch in the end. MI are 179/5 in 18th over

17:26 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Final three overs

Crucial last three overs for Mumbai Indians to make the most of. 200 looks probable with Rohit Sharma and Krunal Pandya in the middle and Hardik to come. But how much more can they get?

17:17 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Kieron Pollard gone for 0

Golden duck for Kieron Pollard! Dan Christian is now on a hat-trick with two wickets in two balls.  Pollard tries to play this down to the leg stump by moving across to the off stump. Hits the thigh pad and the umpire raises his finger. MI 166/4 in 16th over

17:14 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Ishan Kishan gone for 44

Ishan Kishan tries to go for a reverse scoop - yet another extravagant shot - but this one doesn't work out. Dan Christian has him bowled. Completely misses the full toss and it rams into th middle and leg stump. Mumbai Indians are 166/3 in the 16th over

17:10 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Shami being smacked all around

Mohammed Shami being taken to the cleaners by this Mumbai batting. He's not had the smartest of bowling effort today. The line and length has been absurd. Banging it short with the field inside. Both third man and fine leg are up, goes short and Ishan Kishan rushes into the shot but top edges it over the keeper for a four. MI are 158/2 after 15 overs

17:00 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Ishan Kishan demolishes Tewatia

Ishan Kishan has smacked Rahul Tewatia all around. Four, six and six in the 13th over off consecutive deliveries. Rounds off the over with a lovely reverse sweep that goes soaring into the crowd for a six. Wankhede crowd loves that! Rahul Tewatia after 11 overs: 3-0-17-2 and Rahul Tewatia after 13 overs: 4-0-36-2

16:59 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Rohit Sharma is the new man in - lower down than his usual and preferred opening slot - and the change has paid off. But MI need the middle order to consolidate that explosive start to get well past the 200-run mark. Mumbai Indians are 122/2 after 12 overs

16:49 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Suryakumar Yadav gone for 53

Suryakumar Yadav has been given out leg before off Rahul Tewatia. It is not a no ball. First a look to see if there was a glove to it as Suryakumar went for the sweep. Doesn't look like it. It had pitched in line and impact is in line as well. Going on to hit the outside of the leg stump. Umpire's decision. Mumbai Indians don't lose their referral but lose the second wicket as Suryakumar Yadav walks for 53 from 32 balls. Mumbai Indians 109/2 after 10.1 overs

16:44 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Fantastic start for Mumbai Indians and Suryakumar Yadav a key factor in that. Brings up his 50 from 29 balls and takes in the applause. His innings has seen seven boundaries and a six. 

16:42 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Mumbai Indians lose their first wicket as Evin Lewis walks back after scoring 48 from 28 balls with four fours and four sixes. A slider by Tewatia, angled from the over the wicket, Lewis comes down the track but doesn't get the distance to beat Jason Roy at long off. Mumbai Indians are 102/1 after 9 overs

16:40 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Lewis with a slog to Tewatia and the top edge is high and deep enough to just about beat the fielder at long on for a six. Desperate attempt at the boundary but the ball wins. That also brings about the hundred for Mumbai Indians in the ninth over

16:39 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Maxwell goes for five

Another inexpensive over from Delhi Daredvils courtesy the spinner. Glenn Maxwell goes for five runs in the 8th over of the Mumbai Indians innings. But need plenty more of the same to undo the early damage

16:32 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Tewatia calms things

Introduction of spin with Rahul Tewatia produces the first single digit over. He goes for three runs and finally no DD fielder had to run to the boundary to fetch the ball. First six overs going for 15, 10, 15, 12, 14 and 18.

16:27 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
End of powerplay: MI 84/0

Four balls and three boundaries from Evin Lewis to Dan Christian. This is monsterous stuff rom the Mumbai Indians. The style of the bowls are changing but the result from them isn't. Fittingly, the over and Powerplay overs end with a six. Slower one, tapped on to it by Lewis who sends it soaring into the stands. MI 84/0 after 6 overs

16:23 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

This has been a terrible start for Delhi Daredevils. Mumbai Indians are off to the best start of their IPL career. Delhi Daredevils being taken to the cleaners. Mohammed Shami goes for six and four to begin the fifth over and a four again to end things. After five overs, Mumbai Indians are 66/0. 

16:16 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Another short ball and Lewis sends that soaring over the ropes.  Nadeem is giving away runs in hi second over here.

16:13 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

It is Lewis turn now to have a crack at Boult. He clears the ropes for a six with a powerful shot over mid-on. Boult is struggling to contain the MI openers in this game. He again conceeded 15 runs in his second over. 

16:11 (IST) 14 Apr 2018

Surya Kumar drives Boult for another four. A straight drive, this one.  Boult bounces the third one and Kumar cheekily deflects the ball behind the wicket for another four.

16:07 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
FOUR! Bad start from DD

Not a good start from Delhi Daredevils. Surya Kumar punches the first ball from Nadeem towards the onside for a boundary.  Nadeem reedems himself after that first ball. A dot ball and three singles coming from the next four deliveries.  Lewis sweeps the last ball but it fails to clear the boundary. MI takes two runs off the last ball. 

16:04 (IST) 14 Apr 2018
Expensive over from Boult

Surya Kumar Yadav drives the ball for a FOUR. No swing from Trent Boult there. He follows it up with a single. Boult to Elvin Lewis. He pulls it for another boundary, the second this over. Last ball of the over and Lewis leaves it. It goes wide off the leg stump.  MI gets four legbyes. 

MI vs DD Live IPL 2018 Live, MI vs DD: Hardik Pandya is a doubt for Mumbai Indians. (Source: PTI) IPL defending champions Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils can draw similarity in how they've started in 2018. Both have played two and lost two. However, what the table won't highlight is the matter of defeats. Mumbai Indians have been on the losing end of two close encounters while Delhi can only use D/L method as an excuse for defeat the last time. Focus will be on Hardik Pandya's presence, or lack of, in the Mumbai Indians setup. He did not travel to Hyderabad after suffering from a twisted ankle. He's still not fully recovered and after limited time spent in the nets, his inclusion looks questionable.
