Delhi Daredevils have kept their hope alive to make it to playoffs by winning their last two games, they won both the games while chasing a huge target at the same ground of Feroz Shah Kotla. Last match they registered their highest chase against Gujarat Lions and won the match rather comfortably. But the major problem which is by farmost supreme among rest is to overcome the table toppers of this season Mumbai Indians and make their playoffs bet a little more stronger. Mumbai Indians on the other hand have always found out a new winner at every game and will be eyeing for recording their ninth win of the season and fix their chances of being at the top of the table. Delhi Daredevils will be slightly positive due to their home ground benefits and knowing that Mumbai Indians have not won their last five games at Feroz Shah Kotla.
Last time they played: chasing a modest target of 143 runs, Delhi Daredevils were down to 6 for 24 runs. When Kagiso Rabada and Chris Morris came to their rescue but eventually they fell short of target by 14 runs and were on the losing side. Mumbai Indians displayed a fine spell of bowling especially by Mitchell McCLengan.
Head to head battle: both teams have played 19th matches against each other and before this season first match both teams were at an equal win loss ratio but Mumbai Indians by winning this season match have slightly upper hand. Mumbai Indians have won 10 of the 19 games while Delhi Daredevils have won the remaining 9.
