Mumbai Indians (MI) analysis:
MI has squad that can send tremors across the spine of opposition. Team management is providing best possible facilities and services to the players. Mumbai played so well in IPL 3 but lost their way in the finals. Sachin is in the form of his life while we know what Pollard and Symonds can do. Lasith Malinga is the best fast bowler in T20 format. Delhi will collapse if Malings takes care off Sehwag and Warner. Suman, Rayudu and Rohit Sharma have good record in Indian Premier League T20.
Best strategy for Mumbai: Ask DD to bat first and chase its score as Delhi is looking weak in the bowling department.
Probable squad: Sachin Tendulkar (Captain), T. Suman, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu (WK), Andrew Symonds, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, James Franklin, Harbhajan Singh, R. Satish & Munaf Patel
Delhi Daredevils (DD) Analysis:
DD has sensational openers – Virender Sehwag and David Warners – who can decimate any bowling department on their day. Colin Ingram won the T20 player of the year in South African domestic tournament. Irfan Pathan has good record in IPL tournament.
Can this bowling attack is enough to stop rampaging Mumbai Indians?
Probable squad: Virender Sehwag (Captain), David Warner, Colin Ingram, Venugopala Rao, Irfan Pathan, Naman Ojha (WK), Morne Morkel, Ashok Dinda, Umesh Yadav,
