Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils
Mumbai Indians will look to extend their lead at the top of the points table as they face Delhi Daredevils at home in the 25th game of Indian Premier League 2017. Mumbai batting prowess came to the fore as they blazed away to a splendid win to score 198 runs registered by Kings XI Punjab. Jos Buttler provided the perfect start for Mumbai as he produced scintillating innings at the top to score 77 runs off 37 balls while Nitish Rana once again came good to produce unbeaten 62 runs off 34 runs to see Mumbai notch up comfortable win.
Nitish Rana is holder of Orange Cap while Jos Buttler, Parthiv Patel, Kieron Pollard have chipped at crucial moments for the side this season in the game played till now. Rana has certainly been the go to man for Mumbai when it comes to chasing down big scores. Mumbai do have a slight worry in terms of bowling as Lasith Malinga was taken apart by Hashim Amla and then the rest also produced leaked a lot of runs. Mumbai might persist with the same combination given that it has produced the right results till now in the league.
Delhi Daredevils have suffered two-consecutive defeats as they will look to bounce back against in-form Mumbai Indians. They have been good at times but not been able to maintain that intensity for the whole game that has seen them end up on the losing side. Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson and Sam Billings are good players who can come good for Delhi if the openers provide a decent start to the innings. Angelo Matthews might be dropped to make for Corey Anderson who might provide more with bat and ball.
Delhi will look to get back to winning ways after registering two wins in this season of Indian Premier League.
