Mumbai Indians were very badly in need of a win after losing their first 3 matches of the UAE leg and they came out victorious against Punjab kings in the last game. They cannot afford to lose this match as they might be on a back foot in the fourth place chase alongside KKR currently. Delhi Capitals suffered their first loss in the second leg after hat-trick of wins and will be eager to get back to winning ways in this match. They are in a very good position currently but will look to qualify for the next stage very early and look to come in the first 2 places of the points table.

Mumbai Indians Preview

Mumbai Indians were led by Quinton De Kock (27 runs) and Saurabh Tiwary (45 runs) building a crucial partnership after 2 quick wickets early in the match. Hardik Pandya (40 runs) and Kieron Pollard (15 runs) shared an unbeaten 45-run partnership of just 23 balls to seal the chase for their team.

Spin duo of Krunal Pandya and Rahul bowled beautifully in the different halves of the match as they gave just 51 run and picked up 2 wickets in their combined 8 overs. Jasprit Bumrah and Nathan Coulter Nile were excellent with the ball as the kept the pressure on the batsmen. Kieron Pollard chipped in with 2 crucial wickets in the middle overs.

Top players to bet on:

Rohit Sharma – Rohit enjoys pace on the ball and he will have a tussle with the duo of Rabada and Nortje in this match. We expect him to come good in this battle and score big for his team.

Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah is the leader of their bowling attack and we expect him to come with yet another superb spell in this match. He is in excellent rhythm in the last 3-4 matches of this season.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult

Delhi Capitals Preview

Steve Smith opened the batting in the absence of Prithvi Shaw and put on a vital 39 runs on a tricky pitch.  Skipper Rishabh Pant (39 runs) and Shikhar Dhawan (24 runs) played good cameos but the other players fell like nine pins as they ended up with just 127 runs in their 20 overs. 6 players were dismissed for single digit scores in the match.

Their bowlers fought hard taking wickets at regular intervals in the match. Avesh Khan picked up 3 wickets while Ravi Ashwin, Anrich Nortje, and Axar Patel picked up crucial wickets and gave runs at less than 6 RPO. Kagiso Rabada and Lalit Yadav went for 2 expensive overs which cost them the match in a close contest.

Top players to bet on:

Avesh Khan – Avesh Khan has been their star performer this season with 18 wickets so far. He has been a perfect foil to their pace duo of Rabada and Nortje in the death overs. His slower balls and cutters are tough to deal with accurate execution.

Shikhar Dhawan – Dhawan is their most consistent player with 454 runs leading the orange cap race. He looked in good touch in his short stay on a tricky pitch in the last game too. We expect him to pile up more runs in this match too.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

Shikhar Dhawan, Steven Smith, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (C & wk), Shimron Hetmyer/Marcus Stoinis, Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan

Weather Conditions

Sharjah will have hot and humid weather with no possibilities of rain. We expect a full match with no weather interruptions expected.

Venue Details

Sharjah has been a tough pitch to score runs freely with teams scoring runs less than 140 runs mostly. The ball might come onto the bat slower and bowlers might go for their slower ones and variations. We expect an average score of 140-150 runs on this pitch.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams will opt to bat second despite the pitch getting slower as the match progresses. Teams are comfortable chasing rather than setting a target here.

DC has a very strong batting line-up with quality players at top-5 and Prithvi Shaw might make a comeback in this match. They miss Marcus Stoinis in the lower order as they don’t have a good all-rounder to replace him. They also have an experienced bowling unit in pace and spin departments. MI`s middle order is struggling and Pollard and Pandya`s return to form last game will be a big boost. Their bowling attack looks fairly better with contributions from 5-6 players. We expect DC to win this match owing to their all-round abilities and recent form.
