9th match (D/N), Indian Premier League at Mumbai, Apr 14 2018

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. Kieron Pollard and Hardik later got involved in the dismissals of Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell respectively. Hardik Pandya, who had twisted his ankle in the tournament opener against Chennai Super Kings, reclaimed his regular spot at the expense of Pradeep Sangwan.

Needing 11 off the final over, Roy hit a cover drive for four in the first ball followed by a six over fine leg.

Instead, Mumbai Indians managed to put up only 194 on the board despite a quickfire 23-ball 44 from the young Ishan Kishan.

MoM: J Roy for 91 runs from 53 balls (Not out).

Speaking about the tense finish Iyer said "As a batsman, you would love to close down the chase at the earliest, but they bowled some really good slower balls and the last over, it was tougher for Jason to pick up". After Captain Gautam Gambhir (15) was dismissed by Mustafizur Rahman (4-25-1), Rishabh Pant (47) and Roy launched an attack on the MI bowlers in a 69-run stand. Despite Rohit Sharma's having not performed as expected, MI can feel positive due to the fact that DD has only ever won one match at Wankhede.

Spurs v City Is The Premier League Highlight
I expect goals, but I think this will be open and entertaining, and can't entirely decide who will get the better of this one. They sit 10 points ahead of Chelsea and are rushing to cement a top-four spot on the table before the season closes.

Hurricane names Harvey, Irma, Maria and Nate being retired
The 2017 hurricane season featured three category 4 hurricanes making landfall, including Harvey, Irma and Maria. Hurricane Harvey killed 68 people in Texas alone and dumped historic amounts of rain on the city of Houston.

Mike Pompeo's secretary of state confirmation hearing begin
Pompeo , a former Republican congressman from Kansas, has a reputation for his hawkish approach to American security. Mr Pompeo also told senators he would not resign as secretary of state if Mr Trump were to sack Mr Mueller.

But he couldn't connect the next three balls and somehow got bat on ball off the last to get the winning run.

Today's first IPL 2018 game will see Delhi Daredevils travel to the Wankhede Stadium to take on Mumbai Indians.

Yet another game went down to the last over and yet again, Mumbai Indians (MI) were at the receiving end of the pulsating action. Krunal Pandya out! 11 (10 balls) c Rahul Tewatia. 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. Rohit Sharma, the Pandya brothers and the lower order could only chip in with low scores as Mumbai Indians were restricted to 194 for 7. With Kishan also in good nick, there's a proper momentum at the top of the order. Mustafizur struck back with three dot balls to get the 21,000 children - who were in the crowd as part of the Education and Sports for All initiative of the Mumbai franchise - excited. Pandya came to the ground on Friday evening in what was an optional training session, but looked a bit rusty.

Stanlake, Kaul and Sandeep Sharma picked up two wickets apiece, while Rashid Khan and Shakib Al Hasan chipped in with one wicket each.

The 30-year-old however, was in all praise for his bowlers. Interestingly, MI promoted Suryakumar as an opener for this game and the move worked for them. Lewis smashed four fours and as many sixes.
