It will be a battle between two in-from teams when Delhi Capitals host Mumbai Indians in a mouth-watering Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on Thursday.
The two teams have already clashed once in the ongoing edition of the league with Delhi beating Mumbai by 37 runs in the two teams’ first match of the season at Wankhede Stadium.
Revenge will be on the minds of the three-time champions but things aren’t going to be easy as second-placed Delhi are enjoying a rich vein of form that saw them winning their last three contests.
To stop the Delhi juggernaut, MI will once again look up to their talismanic pacer Jasprit Bumrah — who is regarded as one of the best bowlers in white-ball cricket. However, Bumrah’s record against Delhi’s current top three has been awful and that poses a big concern for Rohit Sharma and his troops.
Bumrah has bowled 46 deliveries to opener Shikhar Dhawan in the past and he hasn’t managed to dismiss the southpaw even once. Moreover, Dhawan has hits Bumrah for 69 runs at an incredible strike-rate of 150.
