Delhi Daredevils (DD) won at Wankhede Stadium after 6 years. It was in 2012 when DD thrashed Mumbai Indians (MI) by 7 wickets. Today, DD thrashed MI by the same margin. Jason Roy took Wankhede by storm with his unbeaten knock of 91 that saw 6 fours and 6 sixes. He replaced out-of-form Colin Munro and did justice to his selection in the playing XI. As always, the match was a last-ball thriller for MI.

Roy was awarded Man of the Match for opening the account for DD in VIVO IPL 2018. 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. Brought it back nicely with 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.”

Delhi have, finally, bagged two points under their pocket but remain at the sixth spot. Delhi will play their next game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Monday while MI will take on RCB at their den with a hope to move off the winless tag.
