Delhi on the other hand have been extremely shabby in their performance. Despite being led by skipper Kevin Pietersen and being mentored by coach Gary Kirsten, the side has managed only two wins from their 12 matches. Fans may well have given up on the team but pride is not yet completely lost. Wins to end the season can salvage some respect and the team would be raring to bring down Mumbai - spoiling their party this year.
