Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals: In IPL 2021, two matches will be played tomorrow i.e. on Saturday. In the first match of tomorrow, the teams of Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals will be face to face. This match will be played in Sharjah from 3.30 pm. After the loss in the previous match, Delhi Capitals will be looking to return to the winning track against Mumbai while the in-form defending champions Mumbai Indians will be looking to maintain the momentum after a win.
Delhi Capitals, who almost cemented their place in the playoffs after eight wins, had to face defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders in their last match. At the same time, Mumbai had defeated Punjab Kings in their last match.
In this match to be played in Sharjah, the pitch can prove to be helpful for the spinners. In such a situation, Delhi’s spin trio Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav will try to make a mark. On the other hand, Mumbai registered its first win in the last match after three consecutive defeats in the UAE leg of the IPL. However, Suryakumar Yadav’s poor form for Mumbai is a matter of concern. He has been able to score only 0, 8, 5 and 3 runs in four matches.
The good thing for Mumbai was that Saurabh Tiwary (45) and Hardik Pandya (40 not out) were in form in their six-wicket win against Punjab Kings. Kieran Pollard played the role of the finisher after scoring 15 not out in seven balls. Tiwary can stay in the team on the strength of his brilliant innings and it remains to be seen whether Ishan Kishan, who is in poor form, gets another chance.
Probable playing XI of Mumbai Indians- Rohit Sharma (capt), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Hardik Pandya, Kieran Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult.
Probable Playing XI of Delhi Capitals- Steve Smith, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (captain and wicketkeeper), Shimron Hetmyer, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Enrique Nortje and Avesh Khan.
