IPL 2017, Match 25, MI vs DD – Mumbai Indians look to continue winning run against Delhi Daredevils

Mumbai: In-form Mumbai Indians will look to exploiting their home conditions when they take on Delhi Daredevils in an Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday.

Sitting at the top with five wins in six matches, Mumbai will look for their sixth consecutive win in the ongoing edition as the home side seems superior to the visiting side on current form and paper.

The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai had a nagging concern about the non-performance of their top-order -- but it also clicked in the last match against Punjab.

Mumbai`s middle-order batsmen, especially Nitish Rana, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya, have been in prime form.

The bowling department seemed balanced as Mumbai have a bunch of experienced bowlers in their line-up.

Veteran pacer Harbhajan Singh has been fantastic in the first six overs, while Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah have been consistent in the death overs. Mitchell McClenaghan has also provided the breakthroughs at the crucial moments.

On the other hand, Delhi, who are currently at the fourth spot with two wins and three losses, lost their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) despite a good performance.

Packed with young batsmen like Sam Billings, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer, the Zaheer Khan-led Delhi`s strength lies in their array of talented seam-bowling all-rounders.

Bowlers like Chris Morris, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews and Pat Cummins provide the depth and balance to the side. But the exciting team sometimes faces an absence of a pivot around which the team will bat.

So, in the clash, Delhi will be eyeing a win this time to regain their winning momentum.
