Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Daredevils

This could be the brightest opportunity for Sunrisers to clinch a win here as they would face the inconsistent Delhi Daredevils. The Daredevils have played three matches so far with two losses and one win. Kevin Pietersen is likely to play today and this could be a confidence booster for the team.

Sunrisers Hyderabad is a very strong team on paper with players like Dhawan, Sammy, Steyn, Mishra, David Warner and Aaron Finch. So such a good bowling line up and strongest of hitters, the team looks full of power. But they fail to convert good starts into big innings and close matches in to wins. In short the team needs to gain some killer instinct and they would be hard to beat.

For Delhi Daredevils, a lot of reliance is on the shoulders of Karthik and Duminy. Pietersen's return may add some relief to the batting line up. Bowling wise they are relatively weaker in the spin department as Nadeem or Duminy couldn't impress much with the bowling.

Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians

You can certainly expect a lot of attention and fireworks when two of the most popular IPL teams lock horns. Two times champions Chennai Super Kings take on the defending champions Mumbai Indians. The only thing common between these two teams this year has been the disappointing start to the IPL. But CSK has recovered well meanwhile Mumbai Indians look completely demoralised.

CSK lost their opening match to Kings XI Punjab even after posting 205 runs on board. Cricket fans started to write this team off but they forget CSK's ability to bounce back hard. Later they won against Delhi Daredevils by 93 runs and won against Rajasthan Royals by seven runs. That has placed them in the top three teams of the points table. Raina is in good form but Smith looks in a better touch. McCullum can be very dangerous meanwhile Faf or Dhoni can provide a good support in the middle order. Ashwin, Mohit Sharma, Ishwar Pandey and Jadeja have done a great job so far.

Mumbai Indians look completely lost. They haven't looked like winning so far. Nothing is working for them. They need to gather their confidence back and bounce back hard. They have run machine Michael Hussey and explosive all rounder like Pollard. Some runs from Rohit Sharma's bat can come in handy for the team. Malinga is the most reliable bowler in IPL history and he has always been a plus point.
