Tricky pitch awaits both sides at Dr DY Patil Stadium
Dr DY Patil Stadium produced plenty of high scores in the early phase of the tournament. But the venue has provided assistance for new ball bowlers and grip for spinners as the tournament has progressed. All in all, run-scoring won’t be easy here.
Our pick: MI women hold an edge over Delhi in both batting and bowling departments. We predict Mumbai to win this match at 1.68
Mumbai had a good eye opener in the previous game against UP Warriorz where they were bowled out for just 127. They will be hoping for a better performance from their batters. The bowling attack remains a threat with plenty of variety.
Delhi Capitals are also coming off a defeat, falling 11 runs short while chasing 148 versus Gujarat. Their batting unit hasn’t done well when the pitch has some help and it’s an area to improve.
