"We have played just about every team except Kolkata so we know what the other team will bring. Delhi in particular, they were our first game, we've been keeping a close eye on how they've been playing home and away," Cutting said on the eve of the match.

Mumbai Indians are coming off back-to-back home games and the three-time champions are on the road for their next four games.

"We've played well up until this point, we've had a lot of home games. Now it's time to go on the road, four games straight. The wickets we will be playing in will come from home. We trained this afternoon and adapted to conditions."

Asked about the recent World Cup squad announcement by national teams, Cutting said: "Yes the World Cup is nearing but the IPL is as tough a competition. That's what we are focusing on.
