Virender Sehwag once again got to a blistering start. Mumbai were without Tendulkar and Malinga, but their performance with the bat and ball today has been non-excusable. Delhi move to the top of the table with six points and owing to a better run-rate, topple Jaipur, while Mumbai stay at 4th place.

TOSS - Harbhajan Singh reckons it's a good game and that Delhi are a good opposition. Says that it's only a 20 over game, and Viru, KP and Jayawardena can take any bowling apart and is hopeful of having a good game today. Sehwag says that Mumbai are a good side and that they have had two tough games. Feels that the almost one-week layoff was good. He feels that he will love to chase today. Harbhajan Singh spins the coin and loses the toss. DELHI WILL BOWL FIRST. There are two changes for Delhi. Venugopal Rao and Roloef van der Merve make their way out and Ajit Agarkar and Ross Taylor come in. For Mumbai, Davy Jacobs, RP Singh and Clint McKay come in to the team. Tirumalasetti Suman, Lasith Malinga and James Franklin will not play today.
