All eyes will be on a modified Delhi Capitals when they will play Mumbai Indians at Wankhede on Sunday evening. DC, erstwhile Delhi Daredevils, have never played final of IPL before. Mumbai Indians, on the contrary, are three-time IPL champions.
Both teams have a mix of domestic and international stars in their ranks. Hence, it is expected that the match is going to be an amazing one.
Here we will have a look at three battles what could entertain us during tonight’s MI vs DC clash.
Rohit Sharma vs Trent Boult
The Mumbai Indians skipper had a relatively quiet last season with the bat, but with now him shifting to the opening slot, he will be hoping that he can regain his IPL form. On the other hand, Trent Boult has had success with the ball in the IPL first with SunRisers Hyderabad and now with Delhi. The Kiwi bowler has bowled 18 deliveries to Rohit Sharma, dismissing him thrice and conceding only 24 runs.
Colin Munro vs Jasprit Bumrah
Colin Munro is known for his explosive style of batting. New Zealand batsman smashed an unbeaten 58-ball 109 against India in Rajkot in November 2017 and he will look to repeat his feat once again in IPL 2019.
On the other hand, Jasprit Bumrah has since then become one of the best pacers going around in the world right now. The number 1 ODI bowler has been brilliant with the white ball for Team India and Mumbai Indians and will be looking forward to containing Colin Munro.
Kieron Pollard vs Sandeep Lamichanne
Kieron Pollard is a utility player of MI. The West Indian all-rounder has a proven track record for MI. He is coming to play IPL in the aftermath of his good show in PSL. So, the Delhi Capitals will have to find out a way to get rid of him early in MI’s innings.
Young Nepal spinner Sandeep Lamichanne has been a revelation in league cricket all around the world. The 18-year-old has brilliant variations. So, he could be Dc’s trump card against Pollard and MI at large.
