Deccan (11/8 at Totesport
) finally got a point on the board when their match with Kolkata Knight Riders was washed out and they followed it up with their first victory in this season’s event with success against Pune.
It has been a season to forget for the Chargers, with their batsmen unable to get anything going and only Shikhar Dhawan passing the 200-run mark to date.
The table does not lie and Deccan can only boast Cameron White and JP Duminy as real stars with the bat and neither has pulled up any trees to date, while Dale Steyn continues to fire down his thunderbolts but has little to work with.
Mumbai (4/7 at Totesport
) have Sachin Tendulkar back in their ranks after injury but need to bounce back soon after losing three of the last four matches.
They were undone by Delhi last time out despite Ambati Rayudu’s excellent 62 and the 26-year-old is Mumbai’s joint-top run-scorer to date with Rohit Sharma, as the pair have both scored 188.
Lasith Malinga was back for the Indians against the Royals and he is their main weapon with the ball and rarely disappoints in this form of the game.
Mumbai have eight points but, such is the congested nature of the table, they will need to start winning soon or risk being cut adrift at the wrong end of the standings.
