What will be DC’s Playing XI against DC?
The Delhi Capitals beat Punjab Kings at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday night with Shikhar Dhawan making the chase of 196 runs target easy with his 92 runs knock. Dhawan has played some delightful shots to score 92 runs off 49 balls. Marcus Stoinis took DC home after Dhawan’s dismissal at 92. With restricted bowling, DC pulled PBKS back after they got off to a rollicking start. Delhi Capitals opted to go without Anrich Nortje by including Steve Smith to play at No 3 instead of Rahane. It will be interesting to see what combination Delhi Capitals will opt for their next match against Mumbai Indians.
MI & DC will head into the face-off in a Good Form!
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians continued their winning stint with a stunning bowling display by defending their average total of 150/5 against SRH with perfect restricted bowling. Mumbai Indians middle-order batsmen are yet to get used to the slow pitch of the Chepauk stadium but Pollard showed his solid performance when he scored quick-fire 35 runs off 22 balls in the death overs.
Pollard’s heroics with the bat proved to be the turning point for MI to get back into the winning track even after SRH got off to a great start. Trent Boult, Rahul Chahar & Jasprit Bumrah once again delivered for the Mumbai Indians with Boult & Chahar scalping three wickets each. Hardik Pandya who couldn’t deliver with the bat so far in this season of the IPL further contributed with two crucial run-outs thereby removing Warner & Abdul Samad one after the other.
Both these teams will head into the match in a good form by taking with them the positivity of their previous wins. Mumbai Indians have the record of defeating Delhi Capitals in all their four outings in the previous season of the IPL. Rishabh Pant & team will be eager to break this record by registering a stunning victory in tomorrow’s clash. You can expect another enthralling match tomorrow on the grounds of Chepauk stadium. It will be very exciting to see who will win tomorrow’s iconic clash & add two points to the IPL Points table.
Delhi Capitals will come into tomorrow’s match in good form. But DC haven’t played a single match yet at the Chepauk Stadium & it will tough for them to adapt quickly to the slow pitch of Chepauk Stadium. However DC’s batting line up has good depth as compared to Mumbai Indians which lacks depth in their middle order.
According to Cricketflicker, Delhi Capitals will win tomorrow’s clash against Mumbai Indians.
