New Delhi:

Mumbai Indians coach Robin Singh refused to predict the favourites for this year's Indian Premier League and said it would be hard to pick one team over the other.

"Every team is dangerous in this tournament. I mean in Twenty20 cricket, any team can win on any given day. It's a long tournament and there are no clear favourites. It's open for every one and the team that performs on a particular day will win," Robin told reporters here.

The fourth edition of the Twenty20 tournament started on Friday with the opening match between Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings and Gautam Gambhir-captained Kolkata Knight Riders at Chennai.

Mumbai Indians, led by Sachin Tendulkar, will play their first match of tournament against Delhi Daredevils, captained by Virender Sehwag, at the Feroze Shah Kotla Stadium here on Sunday.

Robin said Mumbai Indians have the right mix of youth and experience to rattle even the best of the teams in the ongoing event.

"Everyone is fit and ready to go. We have the right combination and all the players are looking forward to play their part in the tournament," he said. Robin said that India's World Cup victory last weekend has made this year's IPL more interesting.

"Most people are on and highly motivated considering India just won the World Cup. So I think it's a great occasion to come out again and do well," the former India all-rounder said.

Robin said there were no injury concerns in the team and all the players are raring to go.

"Preparations have been pretty good so far. All the players are well prepared and ready to go. There are no injury concerns at the moment."
