IPL 2020 Final: Shreyas Ayer lead Delhi Capitals is all set to play the biggest match of their tournament history. They will contest the best IPL Tournament team, as well as the defending champions, in the final game today. Mumbai Indians have all the spices to make the perfect curry for victory, however DC also has a fair chance to claim the title. All they have to do is, shake off the pressure and play their natural game. MI has a lot of experience playing big matches and knockout games, while the DC side is all young and are still virgin for a game this big.
Other than just hitting the ball hard with the bat, DC needs a much better plan if they are willing to win this game, or at least put on a hard contest. The first qualifier was a nightmare for them as they were crushed by the experienced side pretty easily, clearly stating that their plan didn’t work at all. Now, they need a new one. Let’s analyze the odds for Delhi Capitals to create history.
– Opening Pair: Shikhar Dhawan is the key player for this team and for the team to win this game, he must perform his best. In the last game, Markus Stoinis joined Dhawan to start the innings and it worked pretty brilliantly. Stoinis helped taking the pressure off Dhawan and also eradicated the need of struggling Prithvi Shaw. Rahane is a tested middle order batsman and he will drive the innings further in the middle overs.
– Captain’s Knock: Shreyas Ayer must be dying to perform his best in this game as this a platform any young players dreams of. He has made his team reach the final and now he must be anticipating his innings for this game that can register them into the history books.
– Rabada Nortje Duo: It goes without saying that the team with better bowling attack will win this game. While Mumbai is banking upon Bumrah Boult and Patinson, Delhi has Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. If these two bowlers manage to take the early wickets in the powerplay, it would become easier for them to ride the game on driving seat.
– Pandya Plight: Just like in the qualifier game between the same sides, the final overs of the innings were nothing less than a catastrophe for Delhi. Hardik Pandya destroyed their bowling completely with his massive stokeplays and the batting brigade collapsed against the giant run chase pressure. DC must come up with a plan against Pandya to make sure the match doesn’t slip off their hand in last overs.
If DC tightens these loose ends, the final game will be an entertaining contest. IPL 2020 Final is a big match and this is the best platform for any young player to showcase his abilities. Cricdaddy LIVE Match Updates will be available from 7:00 PM today.
