While Mumbai Indians will play just to stay alive in tournament it is all about pride for the Delhi Daredevils who have had a forgettable season with only two wins.As both teams will be in action later we take a look at top five players who can be game chargersin match number 51

Lendl Simmons (Mumbai Indians)

Lendl Simmons in his five outing has scored 280 runs including a century and two half-centuries at an average of 70.00. Simmons has relished his stint in the IPL as an opener and has been one of the main reasons for the Mumbai Indians recovery.He will be looking to demolish the Delhi Daredevils bowling line which has been below par this season.

Kieron Pollard (Mumbai Indians)

One cannot simply write-off Kieron Pollard. He can smash opponents anytime and has done it in flashes so far. His team will be looking up to him to deliver the finishing act. Pollard has scored 241 runs down the order and boasts a strike rate of 130.97.

JP Duminy (Delhi Daredevils)

The only Delhi Daredevils tobatsman to catch eyeballs and score consistently is JP Duminy. He averages 51.00 in 12 innings and the left-hander has played some crucial innings to lift DD to respectable scores. Now at the end of tournament he would like to continue his form and finish on high.

Imran Tahir (Delhi Daredevils)

Imran Tahir’s inclusion was a late one and he could not help DD to bounce back then, but he has been bowling his heart out. He is a wicket-taker bowler and proved it in last game against Kings XI Punjab scalping three wickets.  Mumbai pitch will ideally suit his king of bowling and given the conditions it should not be a surprise if Tahir trouble MI batsmen.

Dark Horse: Michael Hussey (Mumbai Indians)

Michael Hussey has been in and out of the team, but in his comeback game he blew away Rajasthan Royals with his man of the match effort. Even though against Kings XI Punjab he floundered and was out cheaply he still has an ability to demolish Delhi Daredevils. Hussey is a dark-horse as well as workhorse.
