IPL 12 Match 34 DC vs MI at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi: MI beat DC by 40 runs!
169 target on a slow pitch was always going to be tough and over that DC squandered the great start followed by some good bowling. They finish their innings on 128/9. Three-game unbeaten streak broken
IPL 2019, SRH vs CSK, Today's Match Preview: Riding on the back three consecutive victories confident Delhi Capitals face third-place Mumbai Indians at Feroz Shah Kotla on Thursday.
Delhi Capitals are on a roll right now, they have won three of their last three matches and are second in the table with 10 points from eight matches. They would be looking to carry forward that momentum against Mumbai at their home ground.
It's a different Delhi from what we have seen in the past years. The young generation has made this a vibrant team. Their middle order rescued them against SRH in the last match and then the bowlers played a stellar role to defend 155. Prithvi Shaw has blown hot and cold and would look to get back to form against MI. In the bowling department, Kagiso Rabada will be MI's biggest threat. He ransacked SRH's batting line-up with four wickets.
MI, on the other hand, haven't had a consistent run. After the loss against RR, they bounced back to beat RCB. Their pace bowlers are the key, especially Malinga and Bumrah who have been brilliant at the death. The batsmen need to do much better. There is a lot of dependence on Hardik Pandya rescue acts. They would be looking for consistency while DC would look to continue the momentum. Expect a cracker.
