PREVIEW FOR DREAM11 FANTASY:
On a great note, defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) have begun this edition of the tournament. With four wins from six matches, they were the team to beat. What is even more remarkable is that, by large margins, they managed to record these victories. They have been consistent in all the other matches, except for the hiccups against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
They will face a team in their next encounter that has been just as consistent as them, if not better-the Delhi Capitals (DC). With their fine run in the tournament, the Capitals carried on and stunned the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their last match. Once again, they proved that they had the best bowling line-up in the tournament, as they managed to limit the Royals to the lowest total in Sharjah so far. If there is one thing that, given their present form in the tournament, can challenge MI, it has to be the Capitals.
The temperature will be about 31 degrees Celsius in the evening. Winds could rush to approximately 22 km / h and that could offer the players more relief.
While playing at this venue, teams batting first were more competitive. It is necessary to get a total of around 170 or more for the team batting first in order to find some success. Chasing players, on the other hand, when the ball is fresh, should look to score most of their runs.
