Cricket Match Preview:

When it comes to the might of any IPL cricket team, how powerful they are or how big a team one is, there is nobody close to Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament. Owned by one of the richest men in the country, Mukesh Ambani, and coached by yesteryears legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Mahela Jayawardene and captained by one of the current superstars of Indian cricket, Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians seem to have all the bases covered. It shows in their result as well as they are three-time IPL winner, an honour which they share with Chennai Super Kings.

On the other hand, their opponents Delhi Capitals will be playing their first ever IPL tournament. They were earlier known as Delhi Daredevils. However, you will be forgiven if you do not recall any such team. Delhi have underperformed massively over the last decade, which shows in the way their entire team right from their name to the entire structure has been changed. They have done little of note in the last 10 years and with a fresh name, they would be hoping for a fresh set of results as well this year.

Mumbai Indians have a formidable cricket team as always but they have had a couple of injury concerns already even before their first cricket game. Their legendary bowler Lasith Malinga will be out of the tournament for the first six games, whereas Adam Milne of New Zealand has also decided to pull out of the tournament. This presents Mumbai with a challenge that might put extra pressure on Jasprit Bumrah, India’s best fast bowler.

Delhi Capitals will be led by young Shreyas Iyer in this tournament. He will be surrounded by some young but dynamic talents like Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant. Delhi will also be buoyed by the presence of India’s opener Shikhar Dhawan as he has been transferred from Sunrisers Hyderabad to Delhi Capitals. They will also be looking forward to how their fast bowlers perform in this tournament.

Cricket Match Information:

Mighty Mumbai Indians will begin their IPL campaign this year against the young and renamed Delhi Capitals. Delhi Capitals used to be known as Delhi Daredevils until this year. This will be the first cricket game in the IPL for Delhi Capitals. Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, are three-time champion of the tournament.

Mumbai Indians

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Mumbai Indians will be led by Rohit Sharma this year as well. He has led Mumbai towards victory on three occasions. Our prediction is of some new faces to their playing eleven that played their last cricket game last year.

Here is our prediction of MI’s playing XI:

  • Rohit Sharma
  • Quinton de Kock
  • Suryakumar Yadav
  • Hardik Pandya
  • Krunal Pandya
  • Keiron Pollard
  • Yuvraj SIngh
  • Jasprit Bumrah
  • Mayank Markande
  • Ben Cutting
  • Mitchell McLenaghan

Delhi Capitals

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Delhi Capitals will be led by young batsman Shreyas Iyer in their first ever tournament. They were earlier known as Delhi Daredevils and were led by Iyer in IPL 2018 for the latter half of the tournament. Our prediction is a similar lineup that played their last cricket game in IPL 2018.

Here is our prediction of DC’s playing XI:

  • Shreyas Iyer
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • Trent Boult
  • Prithvi Shaw
  • Colin Ingram
  • Hanuma Vihari
  • Axar Patel
  • Colin Munro
  • Avesh Khan
  • R Tewatia

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Rohit Sharma will be back opening the innings for Mumbai Indians this year. He has had a great record for Mumbai at the top of the order. Our prediction is of a good outing for him in the first cricket game for Mumbai Indians.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international cricket ODI cricket played here was between India and Sri Lanka in 2017. That game saw India chase down the total of 139 runs set by Sri Lanka. Pitch in Mumbai has had a good bounce and some help for pacers. Our prediction is of a score of around 160 this time around. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Mumbai Indians will begin this game of cricket as favourites. Delhi Capitals will be playing their first ever tournament and they will take some time to get used to their combinations. Hence, our prediction is of Mumbai Indians’ victory.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Rohit Sharma (MI) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Krunal Pandya (MI) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Rohit Sharma (MI)
