IPL-11: Sunrisers score dramatic one-wicket victory over MI

Lewis and Suryakumar added 102 runs for the first wicket in just nine overs before the Windies batsman was dismissed. Kieron Pollard and Hardik later got involved in the dismissals of Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell respectively. Hardik Pandya is getting recovered and is expected to be in this match.

With eleven needed off the final over, Roy seemingly sealed the game with a four and a six but three dot balls followed before he managed a single off the final ball to take Delhi through.

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. Wankhede pitch was a slower one and Roy felt played his best innings in one of the iconic stadiums of India: "Was a good knock, but we came together as a team and showed what we're capable of". They batted really well and did not give us a chance in first 10-12 overs.

With the Mumbai Indians meeting the Delhi Daredevils as the only two win-less teams in this young IPL tournament, the stakes were high for the star-studded squads.

Mumbai Indians (MI) are the defending champions and were the table toppers in previous edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), while Delhi Daredevils (DD) stood at 6th in the tally last season.

Pant did not spare Dhananjaya, hitting him for two sixes and a four as Delhi grabbed 19 runs of the tenth over.

The 30-year-old however, was in all praise for his bowlers.

Bowling: HH Pandya 2-0-32-0, Dananjaya 4-0-47-0, Bumrah 4-0-27-0, Rahman 4-0-25-1, Markande 3-0-42-0, KH Pandya 3-0-21-2.

In trying to go for another big hit off Teewatia, Lewis holed out to long off for a power-packed 48 off 28 balls including four fours and as many sixes.
