In today’s afternoon match of the Indian Premier league 2020 (IPL 2020), Mumbai Indians (MI) defeated Delhi Capitals (DC) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. With four defeats on the trot, DC has faltered in the far end of IPL 2020 after dominating for much of it. With this defeat, Delhi will have to win its last league match against RCB with a big margin to make it to the playoffs

 

While MI is on top of the table with 16 points, DC (14 points) is at the third place, thanks to its net run-rate which is lower than that of second-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Mumbai had to chase 111 runs in 20 overs and openers Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan did not face much obstacle from Delhi bowlers and went for the rampage right from the start. 

Nortje got the sole wicket of Quinton de Kock, rest, it was a one-sided affair with Ishan Kishan (72 off 47) slamming the ball at will.

Fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult wreaked havoc to restrict Delhi Capitals (DC) to 110/9 wickets against Mumbai Indians (MI) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match here on Saturday.

DC openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw both fell to Trent Boult in the first three overs after which captain Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant held on until the 11th over. Iyer was eventually was stumped off Rahul Chahar in the 11th over after which Bumrah ran through the DC batting order.

Pant, Marcus Stoinis and Harshal Patel all fell to him and DC were left 87/7 wickets at the end of the 16th over. Kagiso Rabada led the effort from the lower middle order and took them past the 100-run mark.

key batsman for Delhi Capitals

Shikhar Dhawan(471 runs) has been in blazing form for DC, with two centuries but needs support from the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, who has replaced Prithvi Shaw, skipper Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer and Marcus Stoinis.


Concerns for Delhi Capitals

DC's batting lineup has been their main cause of concern in their recent run of defeats. Bowlers Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada also had a dismal outing against Sunrisers Hyderabad.


Key bowlers for Mumbai Indians

MI bowlers made a spectacular comeback against RCB after the hammering they received against Rajasthan Royals.
 
Jasprit Bumrah (20 wickets) and Trent Boult (17 wickets) have been lethal both upfront and at the death, while James Pattinson (11 wickets) and spin duo of Rahul Chahar (14 wickets) and Krunal (5 wickets) has provided great support in the middle overs.

IPL 2020, Match 51: MI vs DC preview

Their play-off berth secured, defending champions Mumbai Indians would look to add to the woes of Delhi Capitals, who are on a three-match losing streak, and consolidate their position at the top when the two teams face each other in their penultimate IPL league game here on Saturday.
 
Chennai Super Kings six-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday sealed the MI's play-off berth. The defending champions are currently on 16 points and with an excellent net run rate (NRR), are almost certain to finish in the top two.
 
Despite three defeats on the trot against Kings XI Punjab, KKR and Sunrisers Hyderabad, DC are placed third with 14 points from 12 games, courtesy their consistent run in the first phase of the league.
 
The three defeats should come as an eye opener for DC as they can ill-afford to take things lightly and need at least a win to seal their play-off place.
 
But it won't be an easy task as their last two games are against the top two teams on the table -- MI and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
 
If DC lose their last two games, it is entirely possible that KXIP will go past them on NRR even if they finish on 14 points and in such a case, the Delhi side could be eliminated if other teams on 14 have a higher NRR.
 
Going by paper, MI definitely have a clear-cut edge over DC and having confirmed their last four berth, the title holders would be playing without any pressure.
 
Regular skipper Rohit Sharma, who missed the last three games due to a left-leg hamstring injury, is unlikely to take the field again on Saturday, but there is no substantial word from the MI management in this regard yet.
