The two finalists of the last edition of the Indian T20 League are looking formidable in this edition as well. Delhi had won their first match comfortably against Chennai, but then suffered a narrow defeat against Rajasthan in their next match.
But as they have done time and again in the last season, they got their campaign back on the right track without wasting any time, courtesy of a win over Punjab. On the other hand, Mumbai started their campaign in a manner they almost always do – losing the first match. But since then, Rohit Sharma’s men haven’t had to look back, as they have been pretty flawless in their matches against Kolkata and Hyderabad.
