Our experts give you a detailed breakdown as to what each team must do well on the night to win the game!
MI – Keys To Victory
Mumbai Indians have already shown in IPL 2021 that they are the most balanced and complete side in the tournament. When they fail with the bat, they have the ability to win the game with the ball and when they have a poor day with the ball, they bounce back and win with the bat.
Mumbai Indians have not played to their full potential in the first three IPL games and in a strange way that will not faze captain Rohit Sharma. He does not want the side to peak early as there is still a lot of games to play before they get to the playoffs. Mumbai Indians have proved that they have a side of match winners who are all keen to put their hand up and win the game for their side.
They know they have a tough night out against Delhi Capitals and will need to be at their best to win. Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and S Yadav will want to get some runs under their bet in this game.
DC – Keys To Victory
R Pant has done a good job so far with the captaincy and also by leading from the front. Delhi has done well because their top order has fired for them and their bowlers have done a reasonable job so far.
P Shaw and S Dhawan need to once again give Delhi a good start. Delhi has done well because one of their openers have got big scores for them so far and this has made the job for the middle-order a lot easier. The likes of S Smith, M Stoinis and R Pant need to be prepared to play a long innings if one or both openers fail.
Delhi’s strength as of now appears to be their batting and hence it will be their bowling department that gets tested against Mumbai. Woakes and Rabada were expensive against Punjab Kings and we will have to wait and see if Delhi replaces one of them or gives them a go again.
The players to watch out for are P Shaw, R Pant and R Ashwin.
We think that the Delhi Capitals might surprise Mumbai on April 20 as they are playing with a lot of confidence under R Pant. The Capitals will prefer to chase in this game as they will prefer to restrict the Mumbai Indians to under 200 and then chase those runs down.
