As the chapter on the two month long cricket almost comes to an end, we have finally reached the business end of the tournament.
In the first play-off on Thursday, Mumbai Indians face Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
Delhi Capitals have done well this season, with 16 points youngsters have led their squad to the play-offs.
Both teams have a great set of bowlers. For Mumbai, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have accounted for 43 wickets this season. While Capital’s Kagiso Rabada holds the purple cap with 25 wickets this season.
Meanwhile on batting front, players of both the teams haven’t had consistent performances. With Rohit Sharma coming back into the squad Mumbai’s top order looks more stable.
Mumbai Indians having beaten Delhi capitals twice this season, hence Mumbai go in as favourites.
