Delhi Capitals eyeing top spot in rematch against Mumbai Indians
WPL, the inaugural women’s cricket league, is underway and has become an instant hit. The competition already has its fan favorites: the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals.
While the former has only been defeated once, the latter has only lost twice. With both teams qualified for the playoffs, their rematch can decide the league champion. Topping the league is crucial for both teams, as it would secure them a direct entry to the finals.
As for who has a better shot at winning the cricket match, the Mumbai Indians emerge as the better team. The squad has dominated the competition, even registering an 8-wicket win against Delhi in their previous encounter.
The contrast between the teams also generates a great deal of excitement. While the Delhi Capitals rely heavily on their formidable batting lineup, Mumbai Indians lead the way in terms of bowling. MI has clinched three of the top four slots in the competition for most wicket-takers.
That is why most cricket sports betting sites are offering better odds on the Mumbai Indians’ win. However, the Delhi Capitals have also proved that their batting lineup is capable of producing 200+ scores consistently. The team will turn to Meg Lanning, the captain of the Delhi Capitals, to continue her performance and topple Sophie Devine as the leading run scorer in the WPL.
Mumbai, on the other hand, will look for redemption as the team lost its first game against the UP Warriorz recently. Although the team will look to secure its league position, it might also try out new players during the remaining games. A win against Delhi will mean Mumbai is set to play in the finals, while Delhi will aim to tie for the points against Mumbai with a win.
