Head to Head
What an intense league that turned out to be! Did we ever think that in midst of this global pandemic that a game of cricket could take place with all the precautions? Never! But we witnessed not just one match, but an intense battle among 8 teams for almost One and a half months for the most prestigious title in professional cricket. Its hard to believe that the league has finally concluded, and we are just ahead of the 1st Qualifier! All the teams fought valiantly, and in the end 4 teams made it to the top as per the rules. The first qualifier is to be played between the Delhi Capitals and the Mumbai Indians! The Mumbai side has a formidable line-up and is quite used to situations like these as they have already won the title 4 times in IPL history, while their opponents would be more than happy to make it to the playoffs here. The Delhi-side may come across to many as an underdog team trying to prove it against the biggies, but if you look at their numbers, you may change your opinion after all. The stage is set, the teams are ready, and we can only count hours, minutes, and seconds up to the big match tonight! May the best team prevail!
Both teams have faced each other on 25 occasions in the IPL so far, and both are tied at a 13-12-win record over each other. Delhi is not looking like a weak team anymore unlike previous editions, they have carried their momentum from their last year’s performance and are going really strong in the tournament. They are looking like a side that can win the title this year, but do they have what it takes to beat the four-time champions Mumbai Indians who are strong mentally having done it so many times. This match could be like a trailer for a big final in the league later on!

Mumbai have looked phenomenal in the tournament, but they will also keep in mind that they have just lost a match against the SRH. The good thing is that their batting has picked up pace and now every batsman right till the tail end is contributing which makes them an extraordinarily strong batting line-up. Not many teams have been able to contain them till now, and if there is one team that can not only contain them but also take crucial wickets, that would be Delhi. Delhi has been in sublime form when it comes to their bowling attack, They have all the guns ready in their arsenal from spin to pace, from Ashwin to Rabada.
Delhi has won 8 out of their 14 games and will be riding on that confidence while Mumbai will be looking to end their winning-run and claim the number one spot. Both teams look hungry here and it is really hard to put your fingers on one team.
