Pre-match Analysis

Mouthwatering player battles, the unpredictable Delhi weather, a belter of a pitch, small boundaries, Warner vs Rohit - be it scoring runs or in-game strategy.

Both teams are missing the services of their best players. While Delhi Capitals are missing their captain Rishab Pant, Mumbai Indians are missing ace bowler Jasprit Bumrah. Both teams have struggled to get going in the tournament till now, but there will be only one team without a win after this face-off. It will be interesting to watch what changes the teams make to ensure their first win of the season.   

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Tilak Verma has been in sensational form for Mumbai Indians since the last season and has produced important performances several times. The left-handed batter has already 106 runs in the two matches played so far and would like to further his good form and ensure his team’s victory this time. 

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

With the insane fast bowling ability that he has, the hunger to take wickets after an unsuccessful first outing, and missing the second game as a precautionary measure, Jofra Archer, if he returns to the Mumbai Indians line-up, can be the best bowler of the match as he would like to run through the Delhi Capitals’ batting line-up.

Match Details

Delhi Capitals will be up against the Mumbai Indians in the 16th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi on 11th April 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset. 

Pitch Report

Arun Jaitley Stadium is Delhi Capitals’ home ground. Usually, the pitch is slower in pace. But the outfield is frequently fast, and the boundaries are small.  At his arena, a total of 78 IPL games have been played. The side batting first won 35 times, while the chasing team triumphed 43 times. At this stadium, 166 runs are scored in the first inning on average. The host team DC broke the record for the highest total ever recorded with 231 runs. On the other hand, DC also scored 66 runs, the lowest total ever registered here.

Today’s Match Prediction: Final Thoughts

It is going to be a close contest as both the teams would be willing to register their first win but seeing the teams on paper and their form, it looks like Delhi Capitals might win this match because of the home advantage.
