IPL: Today, MI-DC clash
The teams of Delhi Capitals (DC) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will face each other on Saturday in the 51st match of the 13th season of IPL. The defending champion has secured a place in the Mumbai play-off, but she will not take any slack in the match against Delhi and would like to consolidate her position at the top by winning. The match will start at 3:30 pm in Dubai.
Despite three consecutive defeats against Kings XI Punjab, KKR and Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi are third with 14 points from 12 matches. These three defeats would have opened Delhi’s eye that laxity at any stage in the tournament can be costly. He needs a win to secure a place in the play-offs.
The last two matches for Delhi are not going to be easy as they will face Mumbai and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the top two teams of the tournament. If Delhi loses their last two matches, then it can also be out.
Mumbai’s team appears stronger on paper. After getting a place in the play-off, now his team will play without any pressure. Regular captain Rohit Sharma missed the last three matches due to a hamstring injury and he is likely to remain out of this match as well. However, the team management of Mumbai has not given any information about this.
Mumbai beat RCB by 5 wickets in the last match and it can create problems for Delhi. Mumbai batsmen and bowlers are making their full contribution and they are unlikely to make changes in their playing XI. In contrast, the performance of the Delhi batsmen in the last few matches was not favorable to the team. In the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, his batsmen appeared under pressure and were dismissed for 131 in front of the target of 220 runs.
