In the Mumbai team, openers Decock and Ishant Kishan look in good touch while Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya have recently received form. Captain Kieran Pollard excels all-rounder while Jaspreet Bumra, Trent Boult and Rahul Chahar play an active role in the team’s success.
In the Delhi team, opener Shikhar Dhawan lost touch again after centuries of back – to – backs. In bowling too, Kagiso Rabada and Nortez lost their rhythm in the last match and submitted their runs freely. Spinners Ashwin and Akshar Patel also emerged. Overall, the Delhi team has lost all its last three matches and is coming into the ring under pressure.
