If you are a true Mumbaikar, there would be two familiar sounds that would pass your ears while crossing Marine Lines station – local train’s horn and ‘Mumbaaaaiiiiii’ ‘Mumbaaaiii’
It’s that time of the year when Wankhede goes blue in color and decibel meter alarming as fans cheer loud for the start of IPL match.
Game 3 of IPL 2019 will have Mumbai Indians or MI famously known taking on rebranded Delhi Capitals at home of Mumbai Cricket – Wankhede Stadium.
While MI is always strong at home ground it’s the quest of playing best XI as the team has all firepower both on field playing ones and bench strength. Delhi Capitals on the other hand will regroup with a new name and cricket brains (Ponting, Dada) and will try to achieve better result in this year edition.
MI look more formidable side with all possible balance. Their batting will revolve around captain Rohit who has announced opening followed by Evin Lewis, Surya Kumar Yadav, Pandya Brothers and Caribbean star Pollard. Interesting to see if De Cock will be in playing XI which will make Evin Lewis sit out.
Bowling too is concrete with Bumrah leading pace attack with McClenaghan, Cutting and Pandya brothers all rounder duties.
Delhi Capitals on other hand rely on power hitter and young blood Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw and captain Shreyas Iyer in sublime form in recent Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 championship. They have destructive openers in Colin Munro and Shikhar Dhawan.
DC bowling looks pretty decent as well with Nepalese star Lamichhane delivering magical spells supported by veteran Amit Mishra, Fast & Furious Trent Bolt and seasoned Delhi boy Ishant Sharma.
MI possible XI: Rohit Sharma (c),Quinton de Kock/Evin Lewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan (wk), Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Ben Cutting, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah
Delhi Capitals possible XI: Colin Munro, Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Colin Ingram, Rishabh Pant (wk), Axar Patel, Sandeep Lamichhane, Kagiso Rabada/Trent Boult, Avesh Khan/Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma
Spotlight: The go to man of Indian Cricket “Yuvraj Singh” as MI will have to brainstorm all possible combination for him to be in playing XI
