Right then, we are all set to begin in the ‘Ring of Fire’ for Qualifier 1. The umpires make their way out to the middle, followed by Delhi’s players. Mumbai’s openers, Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock, also make their way to the field. Daniel Sams, the left-arm pacer, to begin with the ball for Delhi. 3…2….1…Let’s play!
Mumbai (Playing XI) – Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya (IN PLACE OF SAURABH TIWARY), Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult (IN PLACE OF JAMES PATTINSON), Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah (IN PLACE OF DHAWAL KULKARNI).
Delhi (Unchanged Playing XI) – Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (WK), Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Sams, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje.
Rohit Sharma, Mumbai’s skipper, says it looks like a good pitch, it might play a little slow, they need to get to a good score and they have a good bowling attack to defend any target. States the dew does not play on his mind and that they only need to play smartly and start well. Informs they have three changes Bumrah, Boult and Hardik are back while Tiwary, Kulkarni and Pattinson miss out. Ends by saying they are confident but this is a different ball game and they need to just focus on doing the basics right.
Shreyas Iyer, Delhi’s captain, says they want to bowl first, the wicket looks dry and dew might also play an important part later on. States that he is very motivated and the full team is up for the challenge and they need to maintain the same momentum. Informs that they are playing with the same team.
Toss – All in readiness for the toss for Qualifier 1 then. The two captains are out in the middle, Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer. Up goes the coin and it lands in Delhi’s favour. THEY WILL BOWL!
Pitch Report – Pommie Mbangwa is there for the Pitch Report. Says the center pitch is used and the dimensions should be equal. There is not a lot of dew now but should creep in later. Simon Doull is there as well. States there is grass right now on the wicket and it should aid the batters and get better as the game progresses. Mentions teams chasing are winning as the team batting first plays very cautiously. Mentions 185 should be a good total.
Mumbai, well they have had a near-perfect league phase. And we say near-perfect because of the hammering they received in the last game, against Hyderabad. If not for that, everything seems to have gone their way. Now, a win here and they are into the finals, with a good chance to claim back-to-back titles. Stay tuned for the toss and the team updates…
Coming to Delhi first, they were on a spree of losses before plugging it in. They won their last league game against Bangalore and staked the other spot in the top 2. Their batsmen have been in stellar form while their bowling needs to step up. Given that Mumbai had the better of them in the 2 games during the league stage, Iyer’s men would be looking to exact revenge now.
Hello and welcome to Qualifier 1, between Delhi and Mumbai in Dubai. A contest with stakes riding extremely high as the winner of this goes through straight to the final. Wary of the perks then, both these sides will be looking to give their best and storm into the finals.
