Besides all this, DD will be more under pressure as they will be playing this match at MI's home Wankhede Stadium and going by the numbers in past, Mumbai holds upper hand both in terms overall head to head clash and at their home venue as well.
Despite losing the toss, Rohit Sharma was not fussed about batting first because conditions were ideal: a true pitch, fast outfield and short boundaries. They failed to impress the audiences. Mumbai Indians have now lost this season off the penultimate ball against Chennai Super Kings, last ball against Sunrisers Hyderabad, and last ball against Daredevils.
Between all this, Afghanistan star and Sunrisers Hyderabad spinner Rashid Khan was given the Man of the Match only after taking one wicket.
"Feels really wonderful. We wanted a win badly at our home ground and it feels good to get our first win of the season", the 23-year-old said. But, they returned to winning ways against Kings Xi Punjab. Both teams had their big positives in the spin bowling department with Mayank Markande for Mumbai and Rahul Tewatia for Delhi and will be expected to continue with their great form. It is the third match for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2018. The tweet was made by none other than Danielle Wyatt, who is an worldwide cricketer playing for England Women's Cricket Team.
The Delhi Daredevils faced off against the Mumbai Indians this afternoon.
Daredevils led by Gautam will also be looking forward to shruff off their very bad start and win their first match in IPL season 11.

IPL legend Rohit Sharma is favourite to top-score for Mumbai at 13/5 with opening partner Evin Lewis next best at 3/1.
Stanlake, Sandeep Sharma and Siddarth Kaul all took two wickets.
After adding 11 more runs to the score with Dhawan, new batsman Kane Williamson (6) departed. "So I said let's take that challenge and responsibility and go ahead", said Surya, who also scored 90 plus runs in the final of the Mumbai T20 League. One of these two teams, however, will lose Saturday's game, their third in a row. Incidentally, they have won four of their last five matches against Delhi with the 146-run victory a year ago being the highest in IPL.
Suryakumar Yadav is the only batsman to be among runs and his role will be a key element for the team, especially if it loses early wickets.
