The Delhi Daredevils have been much better in the bowling department compared to their batting performance which has let them down in their previous games. Similarly the Mumbai Indians too have not been able to produce a respectable score in their previous game, but the bowlers seem to have done fine with rookie leg-spinner Mayank Markande who has shown a lot of promise in the two games.
The Mumbai Indians after their previous losses are looking forward for this match which is going to be held at their home ground, the Wankhede Stadium. The Delhi Daredevils too are looking for a desperate win and both teams are sure to have a fierce battle at the Wankhede. With top players for both the teams with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard and Ben Cutting for the MI and Gautam Gambhir and Dan Christian for DD this match is sure going to be a battle of epic proportions.
Both teams are one of the finest in the league and have not displayed their former glory in this season of the IPL which they hope to regain in their following matches.
The Mumbai Indians will go ahead with their similar set of players while Delhi Daredevils on the other hand has a new horde of players and support staff.
The conditions at Wankhede are considered to be well suited for batting but it could also be an option for either team to bowl a few overs from their spinners early in the game.
The Mumbai Indians, had pretty closes matches where the decisive factors leg to their unlucky defeat, against CSK they lost a game they could have won easily and then against SRH, they played the game long enough which they should have lost much earlier. Moreover the inconsistent Jasprit Bumrah has made the Mumbai Indians a changed side altogether. Even so, suffering narrow defeats, Mumbai Indians might opt for Hardik Pandya which depends on his recovery for today’s match.
Expectations will be high form Delhi Daredevils top order batsmen who have to equally bowl tight for a promising performance today.
It is surely going to be a classic IPL tussle, between the two. Watch it from 8:00 p.m. I.S.T onwards.
