The defending champion Mumbai team has already secured a playoff position with 8 wins so far. Delhi, which had initially seen a triumphant victory, is now losing its track with a hat-trick loss. They are under pressure to secure the playoff position.
Most importantly, Delhi is off to have a good start. Ajinkya Rahane has lost his rhythm. Dhawan is also out of form. Shreyas Iyer has yet to play his best; though Rishabh Pant was seen in the form in the last game. Delhi bowlers were also proved expensive in the last match.
Mumbai’s batting and bowling are in full form. De Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Ishaan Kishan are contributing their parts. Yorker specialists Bumrah, Trent Boult, James Pattinson, and Rahul Chahar are also bowling breathtaking spells.
