Mumbai Indians set a modest target of 148 runs after a below-par performance from the batting line-up. Mumbai finished on 147/8 from 20 overs. Perhaps that's the reason why the Ricky Ponting-mentored team, is hoping to take the aggressive route when they take on Mumbai.
After having lost their opening two games against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali on Sunday and the rain-hit tie against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur on Wednesday, Delhi seem desperate to make their presence felt on the points table. The likes of Rishabh Pant, Chris Morris, Glenn Maxwell should perform to sustain that argument and to provide their team a victory in this year's IPL. Roy and skipper Gautam Gambhir conjured up a 50-run stand for the first wicket. For Delhi, Trent Boult, Daniel Christian and Rahul Tweatia picked a couple of wickets each. Hardik Pandya out! 2 (3balls) c Shreyas Iyer.Mayank Markande comes into attack.
Put into bat, Mumbai Indians posted 147 for eight and then had reduced Sunrisers to 137 for nine in 19 overs but the last wicket pair of Deepak Hooda and No 11 Billy Stanlake took them home. There is not much depth in their batting after Rohit Sharma gets out hurriedly. One of these two teams, however, will lose Saturday's game, their third in a row. Later young Ishan Kishan scored 44 off just 23 balls.

New Gaza protests on Israel border after deadly violence
A Palestinian girl carries a burning tyre during clashes with Israeli security forces near the Gaza border on April 13, 2018. He said the Israeli military is "operating against it (Hamas) with determination and according to worldwide law".
The last over was heart-stopping with Delhi needing 11 to win and getting 10 following a four and a six off Mustafizur Rehman by Roy off the first two balls. Boult relies on swing early on and will be a hard bowler to face, even for the likes of Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis.
Markande, however, has lacked adequate support from the other bowlers - pacers Muztifizur Rehman, Jasprit Bumrah, Pradeep Sangwan and Krunal. Here's where the Mumbai bowlers will come into play.
Delhi's Jason Roy was at the crease for the first ball of the innings and the last as he plundered an unbeaten-91 from just 53 balls to give Ricky Ponting's side win number one for the tournament. Windies opener Evin Lewis (48) finally came to his own and was part of a hundred run partnership with Yadav which personified carnage on the cricket field. In his next over, Tewatia foxed Lewis by floating up a googly and drawing the mis-hit that was caught at mid off.
On a day when the bowlers lived up to their reputation by restricting MI to 147-8, SRH's experienced batsmen nearly threw the match away as eventually it was the last wicket pair of Deepak Hooda and No 11 Billy Stanlake who scrambled home.
