IPL 2019, Match 34 – Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians – Toss Report
Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals have already met this season once and it was the latter who came out on top. Riding on Rishabh Pant’s whirlwind knock, Delhi Capitals had defeated Mumbai by 37 runs. No surprises then revenge will be high on Mumbai Indians’ mind. However, Mumbai Indians will have to be at their best to win against Delhi Capitals who are high on confidence. While Mumbai Indians enter this contest on the back of a defeat against Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals have won their last three games. Both the teams have so far won 5 games each but Delhi are above Mumbai in the second spot due to better net run-rate.
Mumbai Indians won the toss and decided to bat first against Delhi Capitals at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
Here is what the captains said:
“Having played here quite a bit, we understand the nature of the pitch. Runs on the board is always an advantage. The last time we played here, we were not able to chase 160. We have to put a challenging total on the board. Ishan Kishan is sick, so we have Ben Cutting in his place, and Jason Behrendorff misses out, and we have Jayant Yadav.”
“I was also surprised when he said that they are batting first. We are trying to maintain the stability and playing with the same team. We are going with a great flow, we need to continue the momentum. We want to be positive throughout.”
