    Preview: Match 19 – MI v DD

    Will the Daredevils finally beat MI at home?

    Mumbai 15 April 2012

    The formidable Mumbai Indians take on the Delhi Daredevils in Match 19 of DLF IPL 2012.

    It’s been a while since either of the teams has taken the field. The Delhi Daredevils were last seen in action on April 10 when they beat Chennai Super Kings. Harbhajan Singh’s team last took the field on April 11 when they defeated Rajasthan Royals in a high-scoring game at the Wankhede Stadium.

    The Protagonists

    Whenever Sachin Tendulkar is on the field, he commands all the attention. The Little Master missed the last couple of matches because of a finger injury he sustained in the opening match of the tournament, but is likely to be back in action for this game.

    On the bowling front, look out for Lasith Malinga’s toe-crushers; the Sri Lankan is among the most consistent wicket-takers in the Twenty20 format and batsmen have found his yorkers, combined with his slingy action, too hot to handle.

    Virender Sehwag is possibly the biggest factor that influences Delhi Daredevils’ fortunes. The DD skipper, who looked out of sorts in international cricket in the lead up to the IPL, seems to have rediscovered form against CSK, scoring 33 off 21 balls.

    The inclusion of Mahela Jayawardene and Kevin Pietersen in the Delhi Daredevils line-up has made them look a very dangerous unit; both batsmen have been in tremendous form this year and looked equally good in the match against the defending champions.

    Previous Meetings

    It’s been one-way traffic – at least in recent times – in fixtures between MI and DD. MI have won each of the last four matches, and five of their eight meetings overall. Virender Sehwag’s team has never beaten the Mumbai Indians in Mumbai and they will be keen to correct that record this time around.


    • Mahela Jayawardene has an outstanding record as an opening batsman in Twenty20 cricket; in 35 innings as opener, he’s scored 1418 runs at an average of 45.75 and at a strike-rate of 136.82. He has two centuries and 12 half-centuries to his credit as an opener.

    • Of the five bowlers who’ve dismissed Kevin Pietersen most frequently in T20s, three are off-spinners. Harbhajan Singh is on top of the list, having dismissed him eight times in 22 matches (including twice in two IPL matches).

    What next?

    Mumbai Indians will enjoy yet another lengthy break after this match; they won’t be seen in action till April 22 when they host Kings XI Punjab. Delhi Daredevils, meanwhile, head back home to host Deccan Chargers on April 19.
