Something About Indian Premier League 2018

Ricky Ponting had a brief spell with Surrey in county cricket

Ricky Ponting had a brief spell with Surrey in county cricket

Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson has batted Sunrisers Hyderabad to the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL), grinding out a match-winning 50 against Kolkata Knight Riders. They seemed to have sorted their batting stutters after promoting local man Suryakumar Yadav to the top of the order.

Gambhir, who knows the team like the back of his hand, will lead a Delhi side brimming with confidence after a thrilling seven-wicket win over Mumbai Indians on Saturday in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, pace bowler Adam Milne has become the 10th Kiwi to pick up a contract this season.

It's very refreshing to see that majority of Indian players are getting a chance at the pitch, more so, they are also being seen leading their teams to success as captains. While fielding we wanted momentum and to take early wickets, but we could not get back.

Delhi won the toss and opted to field first, with openers Suryakumar Yadav (53 off 32) and Evin Lewis (48 off 28) giving hosts Mumbai a rapid start.

That partnership was finally ended in the ninth over as Lewis, having just taken Mumbai into three figures, slogged to Roy at long off.

The Aussie Pack: Aussies featured only on Ricky Ponting's side for this match, Dan Christian seeping 35 runs from his three overs but picking up two vital scalps back-to-back.

Team India's all-rounder Hardik Pandya is counted as one of the finest fielders of cricket world and he has taken many fantastic catches in his career.

3 Number of consecutive wins for Sunrisers Hyderabad - their best sequence at the start of a season. The innings turned on its head in the 15th over when Dan Christian bagged 2 wickets in 2 deliveries where Kishan was the first one to be bowled and then Pollard, on the next delivery, went across the line to miss the delivery completely. Incidentally, they have won four of their last five matches against Delhi with the 146-run victory past year being the highest in IPL. On a wicket where spinners were unlikely to get much assistance, they were overstaffed in one department and depleted in the other. But Mumbai lost Rohit, Krunal and Hardik in quick succession, as Delhi bowlers made a strong comeback in middle and death overs. Jason Roy did that to pedantic perfection last evening at Wankhede Stadium. "I just asked him to hold your position and just smash the ball".

Rana hit Stanlake firmly just wide of Pandey, who showed fantastic reaction to grab it on the second attempt and give SRH the breakthrough in four balls after play resumed.
