15:35 hrs IST: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Delhi Daredevils vs Mumbai Indians. DD have won the toss and have opted to bat first.
Mumbai Indians, the only team to have won three IPL titles, have the reputation of their campaign gathering momentum slowly. And though they have won four of their last five games, their initial string of losses --- two wins in eight games --- have left them hoping against hope.
Delhi Daredevils will end another poor season, and coach Ricky Ponting rushing into the ground on Saturday evening --- only MI were training while the hosts had a break after Friday’s game ---indicated an anxiety to end the campaign on a winning note. DD won at the Wankhede, but that was a month earlier, and it has been pretty much downhill since then.
