IPL 2018, Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils: 5 players to watch out for
These players could be instrumental in their registering their first win of the season.
As the defending champions, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils look to undo the disappointing start to their season, match nine of the Indian Premier League 2018 will take us back to the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Despite fighting till the end the defending champions Mumbai tasted defeats in their first two matches of the season against the giants Chennai Superkings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
On the other hand, the case with Gautam Gambhir led Delhi Daredevils isn't any different as they too lost their first two games of the season to Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals.
As the two teams are raring to go against each other and register their first win of the season, the performances of these players could help their teams go up the points table:
#5 Ben Cutting
The tall all-rounder from Australia was signed by the Rajasthan Royals for IPL 7 but he didn't get many chances that season. He was later signed by the Sunrisers Hyderabad for the ninth edition of the IPL.
Cutting made his mark in the finals of IPL 2016 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. His unbeaten knock of 39 with the bat and 2/20 with the ball helped Sunrisers lift their first ever IPL title.
The fast bowling all-rounder was bought by Mumbai Indians for IPL 11 for 2.2 Cr. Cutting was very expensive in his debut for Mumbai Indians against SRH as gave away 40 runs in his quota of four overs without troubling the opposition.
Although at times he turns out to be expensive with his bowling, his hard-hitting ability with the bat and ability to come up with crucial breakthroughs with the ball make him a player to watch out for in their clash against Delhi.
