The team from Delhi Capitals won 8 out of 14 matches in the league stage of the tournament, losing 6 matches and finishing second in the points table. In such a situation, it would not be wrong to say that this team has a lot of power but in the league stage it was seen that there is no consistency in the performance of the team.
The batting has revealed several weaknesses for the Delhi Capitals. The team’s opening pair Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw started well in some matches but lost their rhythm in the middle. Although Shikhar Dhawan announced his return to form for two consecutive centuries, it is not going to be easy for Dhawan in front of Mumbai bowling. At the same time, the biggest challenge before captain Shreyas is about Prithvi Shaw, he is not able to score runs for some consecutive matches.
In such a situation, it will be difficult for Mumbai if both these players give a good start to the Delhi Capitals.
At the same time, team captain Shreyas Iyer also played well with the bat but his bat is also silent for some matches. In such a situation, his run against Mumbai will depend a lot.
The best thing that has come out for Delhi is the form of Marcus Stoinis. Stoynis has been the best all-round performer for Delhi this season. He has played a very important role in helping Delhi win in the first few matches. In such a situation, Stois could prove to be the key player for Delhi. Apart from this, wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant will also have to show his aggressive game while the experienced Ajinkya Rahane in batting will have to repeat his performance of the last match of the league stage.
Defending champions Mumbai Indians have put on a great performance this season. Be it the ball or the bat, it has been ahead of the teams of Banki in every field. That is why it is being considered as a strong contender for the title. This is because even in the absence of captain Rohit Sharma, he continued his winning streak and made his place in the playoffs.
In the IPL 2020, Mumbai Indians have a number of match-winning players and all are going on in their form. In the top order, Quinton Dickcock is playing his best, along with Ishaan Kishan are also in great rhythm. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma is back in the team after an injury, although he could not do anything special in the comeback match, but he can get into the rhythm anytime.
Apart from this, Suryakumar Yadav has worked continuously to keep the team ahead in the match, while Kieron Pollard’s short but flamboyant innings have always helped the team to overcome the difficulty, while all-rounder Hardik Pandya can make any kind of bowling attack explosive. They have the ability to demolish the innings. In such a situation, it can be said that all of Mumbai’s top orders are in form and everyone has the intention of winning the match for the team.
At the same time, in bowling, the team has international players like Trent Boult, Jaspreet Bumrah who are giving wickets to the team under any circumstances. It has excellent options like James Pattinson and Nathan Coulter Nile, while Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya are doing wonders with their spin.
In such a situation, it can be said that in some cases in the current season, Mumbai’s team overcomes the Delhi Capitals but it is a game of cricket and there is a lot of uncertainty in it.
