Consistency is Markande's key

Mumbai Indians v Delhi Daredevils: Trust the defending champions to open their account

The first defeat to Kings XI came after their finishers struggled to build on the platform set by Gautam Gambhir.

DD moved up to sixth position after their win, while Mumbai found themselves at the bottom of the table after their third successive defeat.

However, the police said that they are still investigating the case and trying to ascertain the identity of the deceased. Police have announced a reward of Rs 20,000 for anyone coming forward to give information about the girl.

"We should have won that match comfortably like we did it in the first match".

But the hosts have in captain Ravichandran Ashwin a master tactician who happens to be a former Chennai player, and hence someone who will know best how to exploit the weaknesses of his ex-teammates. For bowlers, the margin for error is very less as even mishits soar over the ropes as the ball travels fast here.

Paul Ryan: Comey a 'Man of Integrity'
In a remarkable look back, Comey says he was deciding "in an environment where Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next president". In the final days of the campaign, Comey announced he was reopening the investigation into Clinton's private email server.

With both sides still looking for their first point, this is a huge game and the losers will have a mountain to climb.

Suryakumar admitted it was "a little disappointing" to have lost all their three matches Mumbai have played so far, but he was confident of the team making a comeback. If it weren't for the fielders, bowlers wouldn't have been successful and matches wouldn't have been won. Gambhir's miscued pull eventually worked to their advantage, because Pant unleashed a flurry of reverse sweeps and paddles to take the pressure off Roy. The bowling, in comparison, has shown improvement. Over the years, Mumbai has been guilty of being poor starters in the tournament. No match is over until the last run is scored. Daredevils batsman Shreyas Iyer said they were expecting a target of around 220 and were obviously happy to be going after 195 instead. None of Rohit Sharma, Pollard and the Pandya brothers fired, and Mumbai Indians went run-a-ball for the last three overs. What makes him unsafe is that he is equally effective against pace and spin. Akila Dananjaya made his IPL debut in this match as well. His 4-23 against Sunrisers Hyderabad nearly helped Mumbai spin victory but they ended up losing in a last-ball finish. Left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem was horribly inaccurate and did not flight the ball, while Shami and Dan Christian bowled lengths that allowed the batsmen room.

Winnipeg Jets prepare for first away game of series against Minnesota Wild
Eric Staal and his line of course must be better than they were in game one, but again, that is an easy finger point situation. He beat Jason Zucker down the boards and bested goalie Devan Dubnyk on the blocker side over this right shoulder.

They bowled brilliantly to restrict KKR to just 138 runs and did not allow the latter's batting to get any momentum. "Maximum time you will see that if spinners take two-three wickets in the middle period, they are doing an exceptional job for the team". The likes of Evin Lewis and Rohit Sharma will produce match-winning performances at some stage and Jasprit Bumrah and Mustafizur Rahman are a pairing that every other team will fear during the death overs.
