IPL Update: The Match Between Delhi Capitals And Mumbai Indians
The finalists of the previous season’s IPL, Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians will face each other on Tuesday. Delhi Capitals have shifted their base to Chennai after clinching a victory against Punjab Kings in the previous match. Now, they will have to accustom with the conditions as soon as possible.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians have played their previous three games at the same ground. So, they will have an advantage over their opponents in this match. After losing against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first match, Mumbai Indians have won back to back two matches against Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Now, they will be looking to maintain the winning momentum in this game.
Status Of The Teams:
Anrich Nortje has joined the squad of Delhi Capitals recently. However, it is very unlikely for him to break into the starting XI of Delhi Capitals in this match. Chris Woakes has bowled quite well in first three games and he can also contribute with the bat. So, the management will certainly give him another chance in this match. Avesh Khan has done his job quite well for Delhi Capitals so far. Therefore, he is likely to be keep his place in the side. Amit Mishra might come in place of Lukman Meriwala. Ravichandran Ashwin has not been able to create an impact so far in this tournament. In Chennai, the spinner duo will certainly come handy for Delhi Capitals.
Some not-so-fictional superheroes will take the field tonight 💙

Probable Starting XI:
Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant (C & WK), Marcus Stoinis, Lalit Yadav, Chris Woakes, Amit Mishra, Ravi Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan.
Mumbai Indians are looking quite settled at this moment. They have found a way of winning matches in Chennai. The pitch is certainly not helping their free flowing batsmen to score at their desired pace. However, the openers have played quite well in the previous match. Suryakumar Yadav is going through the best form of his life. The bowling unit has been phenomenal in first few matches of the season.
🗣️ "We know we're a team that match up very well against them." 💪
