After One and a Half Month of Intense Competition, It's Time for The Finale where Mumbai Indians will take on Delhi Capitals at Dubai International Stadium for the Fourth Time in this competition. Mumbai Will be eyeing the IPL Trophy 5th time this time around as they are the most successful IPL Team soo far winning the Triumph 4th Times. Delhi Capitals will be playing the Finals for the First Time and will have to hold their nerves. Mumbai Indians are the Team in form having a settle batting order with Quinton De Kock, Suryakumar and Ishan Kishan in form and you can't Leave Rohit Sharma though he is out of form but he can found his groove in this Finale. Keiron Pollard and Pandya Bothers are the Power House of the Indians with the sort of power they generate at the Death Overs. Bowling looks Lethal as ever with the likes of Bumrah and Boult having the capability to wreak havoc on any given day. Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar will also get some purchase out of the Wicket.
Delhi Capitals Might be under some pressure playing the Finals for the First Time but this can prove to be a blessing as they can play their best game on the day of the Finals. Capitals are benefited after changing the batting order in the previous game with Marcus Stoinis Opening the batting for the side alongside Dhawan. Capitals do have a long batting lineup with Rahane and Iyer coming at 3 and 4. Rishabh Pant hasn't been in good form after his return but can make an impact in this game. Hetmyer looked in terrific touch playing a Cameo helping the side post a Good Total. In the bowling Department, eyes will be on Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje as they are the lead bowlers for the Capitals. Ravi Ashwin can prove his worth in this Finale as he also bowled well against the Indians in the Qualifier picking up 3 wickets. Axar Patel also bowls tight lines and restrict the Run Flow.
There has been a gap of five days between matches in Dubai and so the groundsman would have had enough time to work on the pitch. Expect a good batting track for this match, similar to what we saw in the previous game. There may be some dew later on the innings but Team would like to Bat First and have runs on the board to built pressure in the Finals. Anything above 155+ will be challenging for the side .
We think Delhi capitals will end up batting and Mumbai Indians will chase no matter who wins the toss. DC has played better when it has batted first while MI backs itself to chase down any total. The dew factor could play into MI’s hands but that is a risk that DC will be willing to take.
