IPL 2018: DD vs MI | 6 Cricketers who can change the game on their own



XtraTime Web Desk: Indian Premier League is at its business end and five teams are currently fighting for the number three and number four spot as SunRisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings have already reached the playoffs. On the way out of contention Delhi Daredevils will face defending champions Mumbai Indians and three-time IPL winners Mumbai Indians where it will be a must-win the game for MI to seal their playoff spot with 14 points as they have a better run rate. On the flip side of it Delhi Daredevils have won their last game against Chennai Super Kings on Friday and will look to end their season on a high.

Here we will talk about the players who can change the game on their own in this game:

Delhi Daredevils

#Shreyas Iyer: He got the captain’s arm band in the mid season when Gautam Gambhir stepped down from the post due to a poor show. After getting the post, he has evolved as a player as well as captain. He led DD from front and scored a lot of runs as well. In 13 matches he has scored 405 runs with an average of 40.50. Though in those matches DD lost the most due lack of consistency but the personal contribution of Shreyas was a treat to watch. The DD skipper would be eyeing for a good show in the last game as well to win the last hurdle as well.

#Rishabh Pant:  The young wicket-keeper batsman is the highest run scorer of Delhi outfit this season. When most of DD batsmen struggled to score with bat, Pant scored 620 runs in 13 matches with a humongous strike rate of 177.14. He is currently 3rd in the leading run scorers list in this season as well. The fans are really happy with his rich form and he can become a game changer for DD against Mumbai Indians as well.

#Trent Boult:  He is also a consistent performer for Delhi Daredevils with the ball. It’s a sheer disgrace that Boult didn’t get much support from the other bowlers of the team. He has got 17 wickets so far in this tournament from 13 matches. He can also be a game changer for DD against MI tomorrow.

Mumbai Indians

#Suryakumar Yadav: He has been a revolution for the Mumbai Indians this season. The MI team management gave him authority to open the innings for the side and he has grabbed that with both hands. In 13 matches Surya has scored 500 runs so far and he is going strong too. Mumbai needs another fiery knock from him against DD to confirm their playoff spot.

#Hadik Pandya: At first he wasn’t in such good form but after a few matches he started to show his true colors with both bat and ball. He has scored 233 runs with the bat and has taken 18 wickets as well. Hardik’s form is one of the key reasons that Mumbai are back in contention of reaching the playoffs.

#Jasprit Bumrah: Known as the specialist of death overs; Jasprit Bumrah was the reason that Mumbai is still in contention of reaching the playoffs. In their last game against Kings XI Punjab, Bumrah was the reason that MI won that game. He gave only 15 runs from his 4 overs and took 3 wickets to give the home side a crucial victory. The team will be heavily depending on him against Delhi daredevils as well.
