Indian Premier League (IPL) fans are in for a treat this Sunday as two top teams of the tournament Delhi Capitals (DC) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will lock horns with each other at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium. It is going to be a clash of equals as both the sides are in red-hot form and have a strong top order, solid middle order and a sharp bowling attack. While Delhi Capitals have won five out of their six games, Mumbai have four wins in their kitty from as many games.
In the bowling department, Mumbai have a slight upper edge due to presence of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult in the team. It would be interesting to see how Capitals manage the lethal bowling attack of Mumbai. Delhi will be banking upon leading wicket-taker of the tournament Kagiso Rabada’s performance in a bid to dismantle Mumbai’s formidable batting line-up.
Among the batsmen, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw will be expected to strike with all guns blazing. While Mumbai will hope for big runs from skipper Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Kieron Pollard and Pandya brothers.
