- Match: Delhi vs Punjab, Indian T20 League
- Date: 20th April, 2022
- Time: 07:30 PM IST
- Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai
After a hazy cloud, the 32nd match of the Indian T20 League 2022 will be officially played at the Brabourne Stadium between Delhi and Punjab. Fans are eager to watch the match and learn about the playing 11 of the Delhi team as one of the promising players of Delhi, Mitchell Marsh, tested positive for Coronavirus.
The two teams will be locking horns against each other for the first time in this season. Punjab and Delhi are currently placed at 7th and 8th position in the points table as of now. This match will be very crucial for both teams as they aim to surge their position on the table. Delhi have played five matches where they managed to clinch victory in two matches. Punjab, on the other hand, managed to win three games out of six in this season.
Fnas might witness just two or three overseas players playing for Delhi in this match. Tim Siefert and Anrich Nortje might replace Mitchell Marsh in the upcoming match. Talking about the power and quality of the lineup, Delhi might face struggle in this match, which in turn, might put pressure on Prithvi Shaw and David Warner to do most of the work for the team.
The bowling lineup, on the other hand, is led by an army of good players like Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Axar Patel, and Mustafir Rahman.
Return of skipper Mayank Agarwal in this match will strengthen batting strategy for the freedom as other players like Shikar Dhawan will get a bit more freedom to strategize the game. Liam Livingstone is one of the top performers in the team in this season with an impressive strike rate at all stages. However, much stability is required in the lower middle-order with players like Shahrukh Khan, Odeon Smith and Jitesh Sharma.
On the bowling side, the pressure lies on the shoulders of Livingstone and Rahul Chahar. Punjab might shock the fans this time with a brilliant match today.
Pitch Report & Conditions
The weather in Mumbai has been ideal for cricket. The Brabourne Stadium is a great place to bat, and we’ve seen a lot of high-scoring contests here. There is also some assistance for new ball bowlers. Someone like Rabada, for example, could be able to extract more than the other bowlers.
We believe batting first will result in a score of roughly 170-180.
