It is the clash between the 1st and the 4th position on the points league, yes you read it right it is the mighty Mumbai Indians vs the classic Delhi DareDevils at the legendary spot at the Wankhede
Mumbai Indians is currently leading the table with the most number of points that is 10, preceded by other teams in the league
Having won their last five games, Mumbai Indians will think twice about tweaking their winning combination. One possibility could be to leave out the out-of-form Lasith Malinga for Tim Southee.
Unlike the hosts, Delhi will have to ponder a number of changes. Angelo Mathews’s lack of impact could mean a return for Corey Anderson, named Man of the Match in his last game. If Anderson is still not fit, Carlos Brathwaite could also get a look in. They could also look at bringing in Shahbaz Nadeem for Jayant Yadav.
