Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians finally managed their first victory in 2nd phase and now have 3 must-win games ahead which is not going to be easy for the Mumbai team. They will be locking horns with the Delhi Capitals in the 46th match of IPL. Mumbai is 5th in the points table and is tied with Kolkata Knight Riders on points only net rate separates them. Mumbai has a destiny in their hands as of now but if they lose this match then they will have to depend on others.

Mumbai was in a pole position to qualify for playoffs before the restart but things have taken a drastic turn and they are now fighting for a playoff spot. Batting has been the biggest disappointment which was the main reason behind their success last year success but Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan have failed to cope up with the expectation. Last match win will definitely give them new belief and if they pick up momentum then they have all the weapons to go all the way.

  • Form Guide- W-L-L-L-W
  • Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals in all encounters last season in UAE.
  • Jasprit Bumrah has a bowling strike rate of 16.71 this season.

  • Rohit Sharma- 334 runs at 126.99 strike rate
  • Suryakumar Yadav- 189 runs at 128.57 strike rate  
  • Kieron Pollard- 226 runs at 156.94 strike rate    

Top Bowlers so far in IPL 2021

  • Rahul Chahar- 13 wickets at 24.46 average 
  • Jasprit Bumrah- 16 wickets at 20.50 average 
  • Trent Boult- 11 wickets at 29.81 average 

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals finally lost after 4 consecutive wins and the last loss might give them a little bit of a headache. The last match loss has kind of exposed Delhi’s lineup as without Marcus Stoinis, they don’t have a strong option available which leaves a big hole. They are now up against their new arch-rivals who defeated them 4 times last season and prevented them from winning their maiden title. 

Shikhar Dhawan scored the most runs in the first half but has failed so far in the first half and other batsmen have not stepped up to the occasion yet. Prithvi Shaw missed the last match due to injury and if doesn’t return for this match then it could become an alarming signal for a team who is already dealing with Marcus Stoinis injury. Delhi Capitals have not secured their place yet and they will be raring to secure the place by winning this match.

  • Form Guide- L-W-W-W-W
  • Avesh Khan is tournament’s 2nd highest wicket-taker with 18 wickets.
  • Shikhar Dhawan has scored most (55) fours this season.

Pitch Report

Sharjah pitch has played very poorly so far in the tournament and it is just a start and things could go worse as we are going deep into the tournament. 130 has been par score here in this tournament and also dew has played a big role in 2nd innings so far. Although it is a day game, so dew will not affect the match but we might again witness a low-scoring thriller.

MI vs DC– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Mumbai Indians is expected to win the match against Delhi Capitals 

KhelTalk experts feel that Mumbai Indians will win against Delhi Capitals in this encounter. Mumbai Indians are now in a do-or-die situation and need to go all guns blazing in the last three matches. Mumbai has got a strong record against Delhi Capitals and even defeated them in all four encounters last season in UAE.

Mumbai finally got their first win after the restart and their key players are starting to pick their rhythm. While Delhi Capitals are struggling with injuries at the moment and their batting is yet to fire in the 2nd half. It has been their bowling who has won them matches so far. We expect Mumbai Indians to win this match against Delhi Capitals.

Top Batsman from Mumbai Indians – Quinton de Kock (3.60 odds) 

Quinton de Kock has had a silent tournament so far and has not lived up to expectations. He scored more than 500 runs last season but this season, he has only scored 278 at a disastrous strike rate of 116. Quinton de Kock was coming off of incredible recent form as he was the top run-scorer in both West Indies and Srilanka series for South Africa.

He has played some quick-fire innings but is yet to unleash his trademark big innings. Quinton has a good record against Delhi and could replicate last year’s success against them in this match. Quinton de Kock is our pick for best batsman from Mumbai Indians.

Top Batsman from Delhi Capitals – Rishabh Pant (4.50 odds)

Rishabh Pant has shown a lot of maturity this season which is remarkable especially after taking over captaincy duty. He has scored 311 runs this season at a healthy strike rate of 127. Although, he has the tournament’s 2nd worst strike rate against spinners but still has the ability to take them down any time.

In the last match also, he scored a rescuing 39 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders and can again give you good returns from this match. Rishabh Pant is our pick for best batsman from Delhi Capitals.

Top Bowler from Delhi Capitals– Axar Patel (5.00 odds)

Sharjah pitch has been very slow and low this season and one bowler which is always the toughest to play on such surfaces is Axar Patel. Axar Patel has picked 9 wickets this season but he has a bigger role than just picking wickets. Axar helps Delhi to slow down the pace and take grip in middle overs.

In the last match, he got smashed for six in the first ball and only conceded 7 runs in the next 17 balls which is enough to show the control he gives to Delhi Capitals in middle overs. He surely has sour memories of last year against Mumbai and will be raring to settle down his score with Mumbai Indians. Axar Patel is our pick for best bowler from Delhi Capitals.

Top Bowler from Mumbai Indians– Krunal Pandya (5.50 odds) 

Krunal Pandya’s place in Mumbai Indians was under a lot of scrutinies but the team trusted him and in the last match, he produced a remarkable performance. He only picked one wicket but his role in powerplay was crucial behind Mumbai’s victory. Krunal is unlikely to start bowling in this match because of the presence of Left-handed batsmen but still could make a huge impact in middle overs.

Sharjah’s pitch has been slow and low which makes Krunal a tough bowler to pick as he keeps wicket to wicket line and if the pitch does its thing then it makes him an unplayable bowler. Krunal Pandya is our pick for best bowler from Mumbai Indians.
