Durban:

Unvanquished so far in the tournament, table-toppers Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians take on each other in what promises to be a run-feast, given the two teams' explosive batting line-ups, in the Indian Premier League here on Saturday.

Both sides are through with two matches each and while Deccan Chargers have won both, Mumbai had to share the points due to their washed out second game against Rajasthan Royals.

It has been a dramatic turnaround of fortunes for the Adam Gilchrist-led Deccan Chargers, who finished at the bottom of the table last season.

In their tournament-opener against Kolkata Knight Riders, the Hyderabad team took the first "small step", as described by Gilchrist, towards regaining the shattered confidence after last year's show.

They stunned the fancied Knight Riders by eight wickets. Pacer RP Singh picked up four wickets before Herschelle Gibbs and vice-captain Rohit Sharma guided them home with ease.

Gilchrist led from the front in the next game, hitting a blistering 71-run knock to take the Deccan Chargers to a dominating win over Royal Challengers Bangalore.
