Delhi recently beat the experienced team of Kolkata. The team set a mighty 215-run target for the former title winner, Kolkata. Prithvi Shaw and David Warner added 112 runs for the side where Shaw scored 51 runs and Warner hit 61 runs. The former Hyderabad’s skipper Warner’s return to Delhi is something that the fans are loving.
The bowling unit of Delhi also dropped jaws in the last match. Kuldeep Yadav impressed everyone with his mesmerising performance. Yadav picked four wickets for the team with an economy of 8.80. Additionally, Khaleel Ahmed also contributed and bagged three important wickets giving out just 25 runs. Former Chennai pacer Shardul Thakur also picked two wickets for the team in the last match.
In the last match against Chennai, Bangalore’s top order suffered big time. The top four batters only put on 47 runs collectively. It was the fighting spirit of Dinesh Karthik, Shabaz Ahmed, Suyash Prabhudessai, who kept Bangalore in the game.
Bangalore’s bowling division has been underwhelming so far this season. Mohammed Siraj didn’t pick any wicket in the last match. Josh Hazlewood and Wanindu Hasaranga took just one and two wickets, respectively. Bangalore need to step up their game for the next match against Delhi.
Pitch Report & Conditions
The Wankhede stadium often offers good assistance to the batting side because of the flat pitch. The bounce is even on the pitch. The ball comes on very well on the bat and the score of 190 plus is a new normal here. There is a very little margin of error for the bowlers. However, the dew factor helps the spinners in the later part of the match.
On April 16th, Mumbai is predicted to have clear skies.
