Mumbai Indians aim to beat Delhi Daredevils

IPL Live Streaming 2013 Cricket

Mumbai Indians face Delhi Daredevils who are the 'team to beat' so far in IPL 2012. Delhi still enjoys the privilege of being on the top position with five wins out of seven matches. They have lost just two matches and they have a healthy net run rate of +0.86.

Mumbai Indians are currently placed on seventh position with four wins out of seven matches. So if you see Mumbai has lost just one match more than Delhi but they lag so behind in the points tally. That is the beauty of this year's IPL. Teams are so evenly matched that just a win here or there can reshuffle the whole points tally to a large extent. A win here for Mumbai Indians will easily bring them in top two or three positions.

Delhi Daredevils look invincible with star players in their team. Virender Sehwag looks in a sparkling form as he scored a very quick 87 runs against Pune Warriors. Kevin Pieterson is in brilliant form with 214 runs to his name in just five innings. Ross Taylor and Mahela Jayawardene are another two stars strengthening Delhi's batting line up.

Irfan Pathan and the purple cap owner Morkel provide good stability to Delhi's bowling unit. Umesh Yadav got a flying start to this IPL but in the last two matches he looked out of touch. This bowling unit of Delhi can put Mumbai Indians under pressure at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.

Mumbai Indians clinched a good win against Punjab to get back to the winning ways. Rayudu, Rohit Sharma and Pollard are doing a good job with the bat. A good quick knock is awaited from Sachin Tendulkar. Mumbai's bowling has been completely distorted in the recent matches. Munaf Patel who looked in a very good form earlier leaked away loads of runs. Harbhajan Singh and RP Singh are not in the best of their forms. Absence of Lasith Malinga is clearly felt in the Mumbai's bowling camp.

Kotla's pitch looks flat and hence a high scoring match. This implies we all would enjoy a flurry of runs between two heavyweights viz. Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils.
