Mumbai Indians Review

Mumbai Indians review

We will be on the safe side when we say Mumbai Indians is one of the best T20 teams across the world. And why not? They have managed to win the tournament 5 times in the last 8 seasons. They will be looking forward to defending the title successfully this time. The team has everything that a perfect T20 team needs be it, Openers, Middle Order Batsmen, Pinch Hitters, Spectacular All-Rounder, and Fatal Bowling Attack. However, they will probably be facing the 2nd best team of IPL after them, and won’t want to break their winning streak against them. Mumbai believes in their players and this is the prime reason why they are so successful. What team combination they will play for this game, will be a matter of debate.

Delhi Capitals Review

Delhi Capitals review

Delhi Capitals are already facing a huge blow as they are going with the absence of their regular captain, Shreyas Iyer. It is expected that he will miss the half-season of IPL. Rishabh Pant will be leading the team in the absence of Iyer, and it will be quite challenging for him to make crucial decisions for defeating the no.1 team of IPL, Mumbai Indians. Their team is also looking fulfilled, as they have added Steven Smith into the squad in the recent auction. The team is young and full of enthusiasm, but how they managed to tackle the obstacles created by experienced Mumbai, will decide their future in this game. Anyway, they will also come out with their best XI to win the game against the defending champions.
