The IPL tournament which can also be called a Vacation plan for everyone will see the Delhi Capitals playing the Mumbai Indians at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in the capital city of India.
Today’s match prediction is as followed:-
The Pitch report for Feroz Shah Kotla was batting friendly but nowadays it has been beneficial for the new ball, the average T20 score is between 160-180 in the 1st innings. So the team winning toss can do anything depending on their squad.
If DC bats first (predicted score 160-190)
The capitals are filled with young and emerging bat holders who are fearless in terms of striking the ball away from the ground. The top 4 batsmen of Dc consisting Dhawan, Iyer, Shaw, and Rishabh Pant are the core of the team’s run-getters. Rishabh Pant will be the X-factor in the team as he can go against any team’s strike bowler.
If Mi bats first (predicted score 180-200)
MI has a giant line-up of batsmen where anyone can come and give an unexpected performance, the strikers like Kishan and Pandya also goes for big blokes which are unpredictable, if Mi has a good start in the powerplay like 50-60 runs with more wickets in hand then they can put a score beyond 200. We predict Ishan Kishan to score above 30 runs.
Dc:- The team will be in a question of who will lead the team? It can be Dhawan or maybe Shreyas Iyer will continue with the captainship. The bowling department of Delhi Capitals looks interesting with many overseas options like Boult, Rabada, Lamicchane, Keemo Paul with also Indian bowlers like Ishant Sharma, Bandaru Ayyappa and Avesh Khan with spin leading Amit Mishra with the back of Rahul Tewatia. It will be very difficult for the selectors to make a playing XI. here are our match predictions.
Dc predicted playing XI:- Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer, Karla, Pant, Morris, Axar, Boult, Rabada, Ishant, Lamicchane.
Mi:- Rohit can also open the innings depends on the situation if they want to play freely and set a big total than that is the first choice, Cutting or Pollard will be a selection to look on and Markande can be the key over the pitch factor at Kotla, looking at the middle overs plan there would be mainly spinners bowling, so Pandya will try to create a havoc with Markande.
Mi predicted playing XI:- Rohit, De Cock, Kishan, Suryakumar, Krunal, Hardik, Cutting, McClenaghan, Behrendorff, Markande, Bumrah.
Key Player Battles
Pant vs Kishan
Both the emerging players who can turn the match at any point, one has got the International experience as on, the other still remains the risk taker and adds value to his team’s batting order. Both keep wickets for their teams and it will be an interesting battle to watch out between these two youngsters. We predict Pant to win the battle.
Boult vs Behrendorff
Both the left-arm bowling spearheads are unpredictable for the batsmen with their line and lengths and especially in-swinging the new ball, one Kiwi and another Kangaroo will be in a competitive stage against opposition batsman, as they will be with the mindset to get early wickets as soon as possible. We predict Behrendorff to win the fierce battle.
