DC vs MI pitch report and probable XI
A match that has been dominated comprehensively by the Delhi Capitals is all set to resume one of the biggest rivalries in the Indian Premier League this Thursday. With a winning spree of 3 matches against their visitors, the Delhi Capitals who have deified all odds this season to find themselves sitting in 2nd place will be looking to extend their tight hold over the Mumbai Indians in the last couple of years.
If the previous encounter the two sides engaged in is anything to go by, this match promises to be yet another edge of the thriller. Most of the well-rounded and complete batting displays of this season had taken the Capitals to the first 200 plus score of the tournament, propelling their total to a humongous 213-6 before bowling out the Indians for 176 runs at the Wankhede Stadium. It was a win that gave this Delhi side the belief that they can go past any side, something that has ever since played a major role in their unprecedented success.
DC vs MI pitch report and probable XI Pitch Report
The Feroz Shah Kotla has come under flak recently for doling out below par pitches and with plenty of time to work on those aberrations, we could be in for a better batting surface. Till now, the surface has favoured the spinners, seeing guile, air and the right line and length from the slower bowlers being rewarded massively. If we are in for a similar surface, Delhi go into the encounter as the favoured side given Mumbai’s travesties of a specialist, frontline spinner in their unit.
This is a surface that the team winning the toss likes to bowl on first with a target at hand easier to navigate. We expect Delhi to win this match solely on the basis of a better spinning department.
