Delhi and Mumbai will face off in match 2 of the Indian T20 League at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on March 27. The teams will be keen to start well. Both teams had contrasting results last season. While Delhi went on to play the playoffs, Mumbai had a mediocre season and could only manage seven wins in 14 games, missing out on the playoff spot.Â
The teams are quite different from what they were in the last season. Mumbai let go of some of their star players and bought some new faces in the team. The likes of Tim David can be a valuable addition to the team. The team also paid a hefty amount for Ishan Kishan, who will be their biggest asset at the top alongside Rohit Sharma.
While the batting looks good enough, their bowling could be a worry. Barring Jasprit Bumrah, the team lacks a genuine wicket-taker. The team will expect big performances from Tymal Mills, Daniel Sams and Mayank Markande.Â
Meanwhile, Delhi too have a similar kind of worry. While their batting looks good with the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Tim Seifert, Rishabh Pant, Rovman Powell at their disposal, their bowling could be a worry. Kuldeep Yadav has not played much of late, while the likes of Chetan Sakariya and Khaleel Ahmed are quite inexperienced. A lot will depend on Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel.
The surface should be good to bat on with nice bounce and carry. This is a difficult ground to chase thus teams will be keen to bat first and put runs on the board.
The likes of David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, a few South Africa and Bangladesh players will miss a few games for Delhi.
