  • Delhi Daredevils

The Delhi Daredevils too are looking for a desperate win and both teams are sure to have a fierce battle at the Wankhede. Akila Dananjaya was handed an IPL debut, coming in for Ben Cutting, who was Mumbai's most expensive bowler in their narrow defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad.

After having lost their opening two games against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali on Sunday and the rain-hit tie against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur on Wednesday, Delhi seem desperate to make their presence felt on the points table.

MI's Yadav, promoted in the order, admitted that his side fell a few runs short of what they should have achieved. Mustafizur Rahman followed it up with an incredible penultimate over, conceding just 1 run and picking up two crucial wickets to turn the game on its head. Moreover, MI's bowling has been impressive.

The West Indies southpaw, who hasn't really announced his arrival this season with paltry scores of naught and 29 in the first two matches, spent over two hours in the nets constantly dispatching the white ball into the stands. Spinners Rahul Tewatia and Glenn Maxwell managed to pull things back for Delhi in the middle overs as they hardly gave Mumbai batsmen to free their arms.

Chasing the challenging total, the Daredevils were given a rousing start by Roy and captain Gautam Gambhir.

While Suryakumar was slick and innovative - he found the third-man boundary with a late uppercut off Trent Boult and the deftest glide to a yorker from Mohammed Shami - Lewis used his strength to punish Daredevils' poor lengths.

Suryakumar made his 50 before being trapped lbw, with Kishan then picking up the baton and smashing seven boundaries - his stint ended by Dan Christian (2-35), who swiftly removed Kieron Pollard, next in, for a golden duck.

DD brought under-19 stars such as Prithvi Shaw, Manjot Kalra and Abhishek Sharma.

Among the bowlers, leg-spinner Mayank Markande has initially taken the IPL by storm and has been brilliant in the two games.

Match Result: DD won by 7 wickets.

Out of 20 encounters in IPL, MI holds the lead with 11 wins against DD.

Almost 5,000 seats won't be available for spectators that may result in a huge revenue loss for the DD owners.

Mumbai all-rounder Hardik Pandya with Delhi coach Ricky Ponting at Wankhede yesterday. Mumbai's batting heights came in phases, and during those phases, nearly every Delhi bowler was punished.

Hopefully, in today's game, they will chase a good score or bat first and put up a formidable total on the board.
