A match with the powerful Delhi side was always tough, but not many saw the way Mumbai lost coming. Their bowling attack was weak, while even worse was their batting unit. Mumbai will take on Kerala for their second game following a 76-run loss in their first match.
The Keralites, on the back of a victory, are coming into this game. They defeated Puducherry by 6 wickets in their first game. Their batting unit looked a little shaky, but Kerala began their competition with a victory, thanks to their bowlers. Though momentum will be on Kerala’s side, Mumbai’s incredible power on paper is hard to overlook.
It’s going to be a cloudy day, but luckily there’s no rain forecast. It will have a temperature of about 28°C.
The Wankhede Stadium Track is cricket heaven. The batsmen should stack up healthy totals on the board with the ball coming on nicely on to the bat.
To monitor the flow of runs, the bowlers will have an uphill mission. However, due to its proximity to the Arabian Sea, there will be plenty of swing on offer for the Wankhede Stadium bowlers. The average first innings score is 157 runs.
