IPL 2016, Match 47, Pick of the tweets: Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils at Visakhapatnam

Mumbai Indians (MI) have a strange habit of keeping supporters in anxiety. They have now come to a position where they need to win both their remaining games to get to the safe 16 points, a number, which may see them, qualify to the play-offs. It has been a topsy-turvy ride for the defending champions and they have not been consistent at all. The batting at large has relied on captain Rohit Sharma.

Meanwhile, Delhi Daredevils (DD) seem to have benefitted a lot from the Rajasthan Royals (RR) outlook. Rahul Dravid and Paddy Upton have turned around their fortune and youngsters like Karun Nair and Sanju Samson have stepped up. Also, Zaheer Khan’s positive leadership has made a difference. On paper, MI do wear a strong look but the round one of their encounter belonged to DD.

Another win for DD will put them to the knob of the play-offs’ door and a defeat here will almost mean curtains for MI’s chances. Mumbai-Delhi debate is usually a raging one in India and this match, no doubt will be followed with great interest.

Zaheer from DD have won the toss and elected to bowl. DD have strengthened their spin attack by including Shahbaz Nadeem and Imran Tahir, and also captain Zaheer makes a return after a niggle. From MI camp, the big news is the return of Martin Guptill and also Vinay Kumar makes a return after a long while.
