The cash-rich league is still alive and kicking with only Sunrisers Hyderabad (18 from 13 games), Chennai Super Kings (16 from 13 games) and Kolkata Knight Riders having clinched play-off spots. Statistically, three teams save Daredevils and RCB are still contention, with a play-off spots still up for grabs. In the mid-table clutter, Mumbai Indians are among the teams who are at 12 points and fighting for a spot in the play-off.
However the performance in the past few matches is sure to have boosted the confidence of Rohit Sharma and his men. Mumbai had a topsy-turvy campaign so far as after a series of defeats early in the tournament, they were able to string in the victories when it mattered most. However Daredevils can be the banana peel and Mumbai Indians will be wary after CSK slipped in their penultimate game. For DD, there is nothing but pride at stake, which makes the young team dangerous oppositions. The last time the two teams faced off, it was DD won by seven wickets win in a last-over thriller.
