Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils

Two teams that are lingering down at the bottom of the points table. They have nothing to lose now. Not too late but can't wait anymore. They need to kick off their winning ways. Mumbai is still winless whereas Delhi managed just one win out of four matches they played. Mumbai will play its fourth match today. Three to four straight wins in a row is what these two teams need.

The opening pair of Quinton de Kock and Murali Vijay seems to be well settled. They are followed by capable unit of batting line up that comprises of Pietersen, Duminy and Dinesh Karthik. Speculations are high that Delhi may bring Duminy up the order as he is in sparkling form. Mumbai's batting line up looks in dismal form. So Parnell and Shami would like to capitalise on this.

Mumbai Indians could manage scores of 121, 115 and 141 in their first three matches. That shows how badly the team is struggling while posting good totals. Hussey didn't fit into the schemes of the team so far so they can look to drop him and give Dunk an opportunity. Or they can bring Pollard and Anderson up the order and ask Rohit Sharma to open the innings.

The bowling line up for Mumbai looks strong but the batsmen have failed to post a total good enough to defend. Zaheer and Malinga are doing a good job in the pace attack. Harbhajan and Ojha are capable enough to pressurise the opposition with their quality spin attack. Can Mumbai break its winless record today or will Delhi register its second win and gain some momentum? Let us wait and watch. Quinton De Kock and certainly his whole team wants to win one before they play in Delhi for their next match
Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

This could be a match of two big hitting teams. And such a match is always a pleasure to watch when we are talking about the shortest version of cricket. Good part is both the teams have returned from a win in their last match. Especially Chennai has proved yet again that no one bounces back as well as they do. After losing first match they won three on the trot and won them all comprehensively.

For Sunrisers the biggest issue till the last match was drought of runs from the top order. Any team would feel proud to possess a top order like Dhawan, Finch and Warner. But they didn't click until they played in their last match against Delhi Daredevils. Similarly Chennai feels proud with powerful hitters up the order like McCullum and Dwayne Smith. Not to forget they have a long batting line up that consists of Raina and Dhoni too.

Sunrisers have played against Chennai twice and lost both the matches to them. They would be itching to clinch a win against the strong Chennai whereas Chennai would love to register another win and seal their second position in the points tally. Here is a message from CSK's official twitter handle.
