its mumbai indians versus delhi daredevils today. delhi has proved to be a strong team even without sehwag but it could also prove to be a weakness against the strong mumbai bowling lineup if they manage to get gambhir and warner out early. mumbai will be desperate to win this one as the chances of semifinals might be fading away for them. do you think mumbai indians will be able to pull it off or will delhi daredevils win another on?

well ofcourse delhi.. with the likes of gambhir ,devillers,dilshan..one of deadliest battin line up that can kill any bowlin attack any day but if surya and sachin got to flyer no one can beat mumbai..but i am still with delhi

yes if sachin and sanath get going no on can stop them and i think it is about time they do it again so i think delhi daredevils could become a victim of the sachin sanath show. thanks for your response . happy mylotting.

Delhi is a better balanced side.. be it in bowling or batting. And most of there batsman are in form, all of them have scored runs. Considering the ease they got the target in previous match, i don't think they will face any difficulty this time too.

I don't think they have any speciality in there bowling attack to worry DD. Only Malinga seems to be the one who can do some damage.. as Zaheer is injured and Harbhajan has already gone for plenty in previous games.

the daredevils dont have any batsmen after karthick.all were bowlers and not very good with bat.warner havent played malinga yet and gambhirs shimming across the stumps will prove dangerous against malinga.the main trouble is devillers and dilshan.get those 2 out and daredevils r over.when u got 3 bowlers who bowls same kinda deliveries,its more like playing the same bowler again and again.nannes,nehra and sangwan always bowl good length and short of goodlength.not threatening at all.so its will be the indians.

Ill say Delhi will win. they just seem to do everything better than Mumbai. But u cant say anything, Mumbai can win if their openers fire. Mumbais middle order will also have to do well in this game if ther are to win. Either way both teams will need good starts from their opening batsmen because both have a good bowling line up. Any news about Sehwag? is he playing? how serious is his ijury?

yes if mumbai openers fire then it will be a great boost and i am sure the middle order will look to make amends this time after they lost a match they should have won against deccan chargers. last i heard i think sehwag is out of the tournament. its a shame if he does not play further in the tournament. thanks for your response. happy mylotting.

Thats bad if he is out of the tournament. I hope he is able to play the semis and finals if he can (If delhi make it offcourse). That will give him some good match practice before the T20 world cup in June. lets hope for the best

Mumbai Indians should bat well, they are have top bowlers but batting is not good, his last match very easy win, but they lost. So they concentrate in batting they have some chance to win

i will always go with mumbai indians.just a lil concerned about the way sachin got out in the previous 2 matches.anyways,i believe the master had his bad patch and ofcourse he got this bad habit of giving wickets to debutants and rp bowled too well last game.but nannes,nehra,sangwan.not threatening at all.so i am pretty sure we will be seeing a repeat of the 111 run stand in the first 10 ove4r again today. zak may be not be there but dhaval did a decent enough job for the indians.may its time for him to prove that he didnt get those 42 wickets last season for nothing.i also believe that indians have to shuffle their batting order a lil bit.duminy proved usefull so he can play 2 down.pinal shah impressed everyone and reminded of the asnodkar of previous IPL season so he is good for the 3rd slot.duminy and bravo can play well at any order so they have to shufle the batting order of the indian players like raje,shah,abhishek,etc. anyone know why bhajji didnt get to bowl his quota of 4 overs for the past few games?

considering the form of the team i would back my money on delhi daredevils.....somehow mumbai indians has plunged into misery the & also the bowling force is weak without zaheer....guys in the middle order just need to play with much more responsibility if they in anyway want to put a tuff fight against the delhi team....to end it up sachin & sanath needs to be firing all cylinders.....

I will vote for dilwalon ki delhi because they have the strongest batting lineup and their bowling is also better. And the fielding is best warner,dilshan, ab etc. Wheras mumbai are suffering from batting problem in the last couple of matches only duminy are performing well. So thumb up for delhi daredevils.
