Mumbai Indians (MI) are the defending champions and were the table toppers in previous edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), while Delhi Daredevils (DD) stood at 6th in the tally last season. Having thundered to 100 halfway in the ninth over, 36 runs off the last five overs was where Mumbai lost the game. For Mumbai lot will depend on Rohit and he has to lead from the front.

The Mumbai Indians will go ahead with their similar set of players while Delhi Daredevils on the other hand has a new horde of players and support staff. Whereas, Delhi never had a chance of holding the trophy and is gunning to win the coveted title under veteran opener Gautam Gambhir's guidance.

From Delhi camp, Trent Boult, Daniel Christian and Rahul Tewatia took two wickets each.

The last over was heart-stopping with Delhi needing 11 to win and getting 10 following a four and a six off Mustafizur Rehman by Roy off the first two balls.

In his absence, big brother Krunal Pandya could be pushed up the order as Hardik did not play in the game against Sunrisers.

Little known Rinku Singh could also face the axe after failing to repay the trust shown on him in the first two games. Kishan smashes a boundary, looking to hit every ball for a boundary.Ishan Kishan out!

The onslaught on the spin duo allowed DD to take a safer route against Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman and Krunal Pandya. Bhuvneshwar did not played against MI due to back pain and it remains to be seen whether India's premier fast bowler starts against KKR or not.

"We went for too many runs in the Powerplay, it became really tough to pull back". Yadav out! 53 runs (32) lbw Rohit Sharma comes to crease, just four runs off the over. Two boundaries, one by Lewis and one by Yadav, good over for MI. Over the years, Mumbai has been guilty of being poor starters in the tournament. He neither batted or bowl in the first match and in the second match, he scored a crawling 23-ball 28 and did not get to bowl as well. Boult opens the attack for DD. While he shared a 50-run partnership with skipper Gautam Gambhir (15) for the opening wicket, the opener also stitched a crucial 69 and 60-run partnership with Rishabh Pant (47) and Shreyas Iyer (27) respectively.

On a day when the bowlers lived up to their reputation by restricting MI to 147-8, SRH's experienced batsmen nearly threw the match away as eventually it was the last wicket pair of Deepak Hooda and No 11 Billy Stanlake who scrambled home.
