With both teams taking the fight all the way to the last ball, it was Sunrisers Hyderabad who emerged victorious in the end.
Under the cosh now, the three-time victor - which has been forced to make a few changes because of an ankle-related injury to all-rounder Hardik Pandya and the non-availability of Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins - is hopeful of fielding its best eleven against the Daredevils.
When asked about the thrilling encounter during the post-match presentation, Sunrisers skipper Kane Williamson said, "It was one of those games that came down to the wire". Against Pollard I did (that) in the Big Bash (League) as well so... we (would) have some good conversation which makes the game more entertaining.
Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma, said, 'Still early days. He has not regained 100% fitness yet and did not train full tilt on Friday evening. Interestingly, Rashid received this award in exchange for just one wicket. He (Rashid Khan) seems to just turn up and is so world-class in how he operates.
How have the teams done so far?
The left-arm fast bowler with great pace, Trent Boult utilizes his angle from over the wicket to right-handers exceptionally well and can account for key wickets at crucial stages of the game. In the same period, he has scored at 137.7 against offspin and at a 150-plus strike rate against all other kinds of bowling.
Veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh went on to tweet in Markande's praise - a compliment that brought a smile to the 20-year old's face who had the opportunity to share bowling space with him in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Jason Roy has been given his maiden DD cap by ex-Mumbai, now-DD coach Ricky Ponting.
Jasprit Bumrah and Mustafizur Rahman split the damage but it wasn't enough as Stanlake (5 not out) held his nerve to send the penultimate ball of the innings to the fence and secure the win. Rashid Khan bowled four-overs of his quota in this match. The surface was quite different to the last one we played on and we were a little slow to adapt. They were forced into this since they had to chase a revised target, but how unsafe did that line-up look compared to the first one? As luck would have it, he didn't get a third wicket in 18.6 overs.
