The defending champions have not been at their best so far this season. Rohit and co. will hope that they can improve their showing at these batting-friendly pitches of Delhi. Rajasthan, on the flip side, have blown hot and cold this season. Samson and co. though come to Delhi on the back of a convincing win over Kolkata. The inaugural champions will look to build on that winning momentum. Can Mumbai finally get the better of Rajasthan or will Samson’s men keep their upper hand against mighty Mumbai? Stay tuned for toss and further updates.
