IPL 2013: Delhi Daredevils take on Mumbai Indians in their backyard
The Mahela Jayawardene-led side Delhi Daredevils will lock horns with the Ricky Ponting-led Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 9 at 8pm.

On one hand Mumbai Indians is looking confident after registering their first win of IPL 2013 after beating a formidable Chennai Super Kings at Chennai; on the other hand, Delhi Daredevils is still searching for their first IPL win in this season.

A SWOT analysis of both sides will give us a clear idea on how well these two teams are pitted against each other.

Mumbai Indians

Strengths: A strong batting line-up with batsmen like Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting and in-form Dinesh Karthik. Kieron Pollard’s lusty hitting and valuable contributions with the ball too gives the team a lot of balance.

Weaknesses: Harbhajan Singh’s form with the ball and Rohit Sharma’s poor form with the bat is a cause for concern for the Mumbai side.

Opportunities: An opportunity for master blaster Tendulkar to click with the bat in front of his home crowd as he was a victim of poor umpiring in the game against Chennai.

Threats: Despite poor performances in the first two games Delhi side cannot be written off. Umesh Yadav has the ability to take wickets early on and Jayawardene can be a tough customer if he gets a good start.

Delhi Daredevils

Strengths: Mahela Jayawardene has the ability to lead by example and win matches. Morne Morkel’s presence will make Delhi’s bowling stronger as he is likely to play today’s match.

Weaknesses: Poor form of players like Irfan Pathan, injury to Virender Sehwag, who might play his first match today, has added to the team’s misery.

Opportunities: An out-of-form Virender Sehwag can look to regain his match-fitness as well as form with the bat as Delhi Daredevils is still looking for its maiden win in IPL 2013.

Threats: Kieron Pollard’s form with the bat is not good news for Delhi Daredevils as the Trinidadian can dictate the terms with the bat. The Mumbai Indians’ spearhead Lasith Malinga, who might play today, can be devastating with the ball in his hand.
