Indian Premier League 2020: Delhi Capitals vs. Mumbai Indians, Match No. 51

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Delhi Capitals are on a fall and have lost their last 3 matches in a row. They need to arrest the slide before their playoff chances get affected. They must win this game to get back their momentum and confidence.  Mumbai Indians are the first team to qualify for the play-offs and we expect them to continue their good run leading to the business end. We predict Mumbai Indians to win this match. 

Score Prediction: Dubai is a good placed track where the batsmen can score big runs if they can settle in. Spinners may find some grip and turn on the pitch. We expect the score to be around 160-180 runs on this pitch. 

Toss Prediction: Dew is expected to play a huge role in the second innings of the match and we expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss. 

Predicted Playing XI:

MUMBAI INDIANS: Kieron Pollard (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Saurabh Tiwary, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Players to Bet on:

MUMBAI INDIANS

  1. Ishan Kishan Ishan Kishan`s aggressive batting at top order has been a big boost for MI in the absence of Rohit. We expect him to play a big knock in this match to help his team post a good score. 
  2. Suryakumar Yadav – Surya Kumar Yadav announced himself with a superb 79 runs off 43 balls to help his team win the match in a crucial chase. He will look to continue his superb form with the bat. 
  3. Jasprit Bumrah – Jasprit Bumrah was on fire last night with superb bowling figures of 4-1-14-3.He has 20 wickets in the 12 matches this season so far. 

DELHI CAPITALS:

  1. Shikhar Dhawan – Shikhar Dhawan has scored 471 runs at a strike rate of 150 but is having a silent couple of outings. He need to make good start to the team in his important outing. 
  2. Shreyas Iyer – Iyer came in at No.6 which was a tactical error in their line-up. He must come in at No.3 and play a responsible knock to help his team win this match. 
  3. Kagiso Rabada – Rabada`s 25-match wicket-taking streak came an end in the last game where he gave away 54 runs in his 4 overs. He is a champion bowler and we expect him to make a big comeback in this match.
