Mumbai Indians v Delhi Capitals
11/10/20, 3pm (BST), Abu Dhabi
A mouth-watering tie, this should be a classic with the two best teams so far in this year’s IPL coming face-to-face.
Delhi Capitals have the slight edge with just the one defeat so far and 10 points to their name to Mumbai Indians’ 8, but the last three wins from Rohit Sharma’s side have laid down a real marker for the rest of the tournament.
For that reason, they are favourites at 4/5 while the Capitals are Evens, but the a number of match-winners in their side, Delhi will fancy their chances to claim a win that would secure their place at the top.
Delhi Capitals to make the highest score in the first six overs – 1/1
A close one to call given the strength of both side’s top orders, but given Sharma’s tendency to give himself a few balls to get his eye in, we are backing the Capitals to make the highest score in the Powerplay overs.
Scores of 51-3 and 61-0 in their last two matches show a habit for going hard at the top, led by Prithvi Shaw, and we are backing Kagiso Rabada to keep his international skipper Quinton de Kock quiet.
Marcus Stoinis has been in good form so far this year, hitting nine sixes, so we are backing him to be the biggest hitter on show and he is 9/1 to clear the boundary more than anyone else.
