The Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings, two teams who have yet to win the IPL trophy, are off to identical starts in the 2021 edition. They both performed admirably to begin their campaigns with a win, but they could not build on the momentum to secure a second victory in a row.
After beating Rajasthan Royals in their first game, Punjab Kings’ batting unit collapsed like ninepins in the previous match against Chennai Super Kings. The Capitals suffered a similar failure against the Rajasthan Royals, but unlike the Kings, they battled bravely with the ball and carried the game to the final over. Back-to-back losses are something that any team in the IPL needs to avoid so that this match will be important for both sides.
With average temperature around 32 degrees Celsius, Mumbai should have another clear and warm evening.
After the first two IPL 2021 games at the Wankhede, the wicket had changed dramatically. Throughout the innings, the seamers should receive some help. Since the pitches have slowed a little, captains can bowl first to determine the situation.
