Delhi Daredevils will take on Mumbai Indians in the match 17 of the Indian Premier League 2016 on Saturday, April 23. The latest Delhi Daredevils v Mumbai Indians betting tips for this IPL encounter can be checked below.
Mumbai Indians have definitely had their hands full, considering that their last few fixtures have been in a span of five days. Having succumbed to pressure initially, they finally managed to find some momentum in the last fixture, where they got their second win of the season.
Hosting Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Wankhede Stadium, they bowled first and got a target of 171 runs to win. After going through a slump, Rohit Sharma finally stepped us as the captain and played a brilliant innings of 62 runs off 44 deliveries. A small cameo by Kieroon Pollard towards the end took the team to a terrific win.
Mumbai Indians have once again proven that they are capable of chasing down big targets. Coincidentally, Delhi Daredevils too defeated RCB recently in a superb feat of batting. Having bowled first, they failed to do a stellar job with the ball and got a target of 192 runs.
But Quinton de Kock stepped up for the Daredevils and knocked 108 runs off 51 balls to give his team a healthy lead in the league.
Delhi Daredevils are having a much better season so far, with two wins out of three games, while the defending champions have lost three matches out of five. The hosts have been playing a lot better than the previous seasons, with Amit Mishra and Zaheer Khan balancing the bowling aspect of the team beautifully.
Nonetheless, their opening batting order is certainly a cause of worry for them, all of their key batsmen failing to find their form. This is where Mumbai Indians can fight back, especially with Sharma and Ambati Rayudu looking good with the bat.
