Delhi Daredevils aced a massive run-chase against Gujarat on Thursday but they are 6-5 to follow up with a home win over table-topping Mumbai Indians.
Delhi nailed a target of 209 with 15 balls to spare in a match featuring 31 sixes but Mumbai are a formidable side, winning eight of their ten games.
Skipper Rohit Sharma is coming into form in time for the playoffs and looks overpriced at 4-1 to top-score for the visitors. He had a slow start to the season after returning from a long injury layoff but his last three innings include an unbeaten 56 against Bangalore and 58 against Pune.
Hyderabad and Pune, two sides who should join Mumbai in the playoffs, meet in the earlier game.
Hyderabad are slight favourites but Pune are in cracking form, with four wins in five games including impressive away victories at Kolkata and Mumbai.
Hyderabad’s David Warner smashed 126 against Kolkata last weekend while Rahul Tripathi (93) and Ben Stokes (103 not out) have gone big in Pune’s last two games and bet365 go 13-2 that a century is scored.
