Delhi Daredevils (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock(w), Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant, Jean-Paul Duminy, Chris Morris, Shahbaz Nadeem, Amit Mishra, Zaheer Khan(c), Imran Tahir
19:35 hrs IST: A warm welcome to the match between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils. The news is that Delhi Daredevils have won the toss and will bowl first.
Mumbai Indians are missing the Wankhede stadium, their fortress. In two 'home' games played in Vizag against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab, they have suffered heavy defeats. Their loss against the Murali-Vijay led team, was in particular, damaging as they failed to click in the batting and the bowling.
Rohit Sharma's Batting Woes
Ever since his 85* against Rising Pune Supergiants, Rohit's next three scores have been 5,25 and 15. His struggles in the last match against KXIPwas a worry and Mumbai Indians suffered. Barring Kieron Pollard and Nitish Rana, the batting needs to come good. The bowling has held up well thanks to Mitchell McClenaghan and Tim Southee but more is needed from the spinners, namely Harbhajan Singh.
Delhi Daredevils - Flexible According to Conditions
In every match, Delhi Daredevils have picked the side according to the surface. Be it Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jayant Yadav's introduction in the game against SRH, Delhi Daredevils have adjusted well.
They have benefited from the exploits of the young duo of Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant. Both batsmen put out oa fabulous display to back up the earlier good work of the bowlers, notably Amit Mishra as they restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad.
However, they will be worried about Zaheer Khan's injury and they will be hoping that he is fit for this crucial game. A win against MI will give them sufficient breathing space, with Royal Challengers Bangalore mounting a fightback.
