Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals Dubai Pitch Report
The last time the two top teams clashed in the IPL 2020, it was at this very stadium in Dubai. Batting first, Delhi Capitals were restricted to a modest total of110 in 20 overs. The two MI pacers Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah got ample support from the pitch as they picked three wickets each. Chasing was much easier that day as MI finished the match in just 14.2 overs. Bowling in the second innings usually gets tricky here owing to the dew and moisture that increases as the evening progresses.
In the last five matches, the team batting second have won three times. However, in the most recent match played here, Rajasthan Royals were defeated by Kolkata Knight Riders by a margin of 60 runs after electing to field first. The last time any team crossed the 200-mark here was when SRH made 219 runs against DC. It was too much to chase for DC as they fell for 131 runs.
Mumbai Indians will again rely on their pacers on this pitch, who can work wonders even with the dew. Delhi capitals have Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje to even the odds. Spinners will have a tough time as the batsmen will look to target those overs to go for big hits. 180-plus should be a decent fighting total for the team batting first here. Toss will be important.
