"It was a key partnership between you (Pant) and me".

Being sent in to bat first against Delhi Daredevils, here at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai Indians were off to a flying start with openers Suryakumar Yadav (53) and Evin Lewis (48) taking the Delhi Daredevils attack to the ropes. Somehow, Roy stole one run from the final ball helping Delhi win their first match in the IPL this year.

Match Result: DD won by 7 wickets. It was defendable when we started in fielding. Mavi bowled just the one over, conceding 10 runs in what turned out to be an overall disappointing game for KKR. "We know it has been done in the past as well, a few games don't take away anything". The skipper tried nothing flashy, but stuck to his game and style of play, recognizing the need for stability at one end.

Finally, Roy and Shreyas Iyer finished the job for the Delhi Daredevils. "It's great to be on the board".

He said: "The emphasis is on those they want to ask and those they know". "She will see vistas of boredom that are unbelievable". Greer, a feminist writer, thinks the biggest challenge for Meghan Markle would be "just putting up" with royal life.

"Obviously we were expecting (a total) around 220". With a mere single needed off four balls, Mustafizur did something Mumbai Indians hadn't done a lot off till then.

Delhi's positive intent came across when they promoted Pant to No.3 after Gambhir fell in the sixth over. Roy made his intentions clear hitting a four off Hardik Pandya. Krunal Pandya was hit hard by Pant but Kieron Pollard took a beauty of a catch straight down the ground in deep.

Roy made it a memorable day for himself making an unbeaten 91 (53b, 6x4, 6x6, strike rate 171.69).

About his own batting, Iyer said he has of late become choosy at the beginning. 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.

Mr Buckel was the lead attorney in a case involving Brandon Teena , a transgender man murdered in the U.S. state of Nebraska. Buckel took his own life by setting himself on fire, sending a suicide note to various media outlets.

It was KKR's second successive defeat in the league and they went down to fourth position.

Yet another game went down to the last over and yet again, Mumbai Indians (MI) were at the receiving end of the pulsating action. The visitors' chase looked in bad shape briefly after spinners Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav had combined to reduce them to 55/3 in the ninth over. Moreover, the loss can also be attributed to KKR's lacklustre bowling performance, especially in the death overs. And on this occasion, Roy should deserve as much credit for Delhi getting their first points on the board as the bowlers. Jason had trouble picking it up earlier.

Bhunvneshwar Kumar (3-26) was the pick of an impressive bowling unit on his return from injury, though Shakib and towering Australia seamer Billy Stanlake, who found real pace and carry, also impressed with figures of 2-21. "We figured that one of the top four have to stick around and finish".
