Indian T20 League 2023

DEL vs MUM, 16th Match



The 16th match of the IND T20 League will be played between DEL and MUM on Tuesday, 11th April 2023, at 07:30 PM IST in Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium. DEL and MUM are the only teams with no victory in their account until now. So today is when the streak will break, either MUM or DEL. Both teams are resting at the bottom of the table (MUM on the 9th, whereas DEL on the 10th).

David Warner would be a worried skipper, for sure. In their most recent match against the RAJ, his team lost by 57 runs. So they have suffered three losses till now. The upper order has to step up since both the openers are out of form. Warner is scoring runs, but the fire in his shots is wholly lost. He’s scoring from a low strike rate, whereas his partner Prithvi Shaw is out of form. Warner has to take the initiative and maintain the team's morale high in the league.

Despite scoring runs in every game, David Warner will need help from fellow opener Prithvi Shaw, who has only scored 19 in three contests. In addition, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw, and Lalit Yadav must score runs in the middle order to improve the team's chances in future games. The team will also need runs from Axar Patel, Rovmann Powell, and Abhishek Porell in the closing stages.   

The bowling assault has often been judged inadequate. Anrich Nortje and Khaleel Ahmed must be effective with the new ball for their team. A solid performance is expected from Mukesh Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, and Axar Patel since they have yet to live up to their reputations.  

The Indian T20 League's most successful squad hasn't lived up to its reputation. In their most recent match against the CHE, Rohit Sharma & Co. lost by 7 wickets. Their bowling attack has struggled, and their batters need to perform better. Rohit will want to go beyond this and perform strongly in this game.  

At the top, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma must score runs. It has come up in two games as a problem. So move up to No. 3 so that Suryakumar Yadav may score runs alongside Cameron Green and Tilak Varma in the middle of the order. Although SKY is not in that form right now, he can turn the game anytime on his day. Along with him, Tim David, Tristan Stubbs, and Arshad Khan are the three runners that the side like to see in the sequence.  

Since their bowling options are exhausted, the team will require tight spells from Jason Behrendorff and Arshad Khan with the new ball. Green performed well in the last game, and he and Piyush Chawla will need to bowl at the proper spots and restrict the flow of runs. The team is counting on Kumar Kartikeya and Hrithik Shokeen to perform strongly. 

MUM lost their first home game against their arch-rivals CHE, while the Capitals suffered a significant loss in their most recent match against the RAJ.  

The DEL's confidence will be down after three straight defeats. The team's top order has yet to be performed, a big concern in this game. The MUM has a better lineup at the plate. We anticipate a competitive match since the stakes are high for both clubs.


Match Details

Match: DEL vs. MUM, 16th Match, IND T20 League 2023

Date: Tuesday, April 11, 2023

Time: 07:30 PM

Venue: Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi


Pitch and Weather Report

The teams who pursued the score have triumphed in four of the past five games played here. Establishing scores at this site is challenging because of the surface's sluggishness. In this game, the team batting first must feel free to bowl. 

Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium is a fantastic place for batters to settle down and focus. Smaller boundaries and a speedy outfield make it simple for them to score runs. Unfortunately, there is little for the fast bowlers because of the sluggish pitch. However, the wicket offers the spinners significant assistance, and they have a successful track record.

On April 11, there will be clear skies above Delhi, and we anticipate a pleasant evening. The pitch will be sluggish, as we saw in the last game. On this track, batters must use caution and play according to the merits of the ball. More than 180 runs would be ideal for the team batting first.

Match Prediction

The DEL's flaws were highlighted throughout the last three games. Their batters need to be in order, and they need a potent bowling attack. To win this match, the hosts must perform at the top of their game. MUM's top order has been erratic, and they struggle to get going. But in this match, the MUM will get off to a better batting start than the DEL. MUM to win.


Top Fantasy Picks

Although with the low strike rate, DEL’s newly appointed Skipper David Warner has scored 156 runs in the last three games. He needs one good day to get back in form.

Anrich Nortje, a South African fast bowler who struggled against the RAJ in the last game, has been among the greatest and most reliable bowlers in the previous 12 to 18 months in all forms. His speed is enough to terrify any batter.

Suryakumar Yadav is having a bad stretch of form after dominating in 2022 and early 2023. However, he is one of the world's most potent T20 hitters. Thus, he has a strong chance of succeeding in this match, as the opponent’s bowling line-up isn’t looking that fury.

The Australian left-arm fast bowler Jason Behrendorff, who bowled out Devon Conway in the opening over of the innings on Saturday, would always take advantage of any available swing. Although the pitch does not look pacer-friendly, he can still trouble the batters with his line and cutter variations.


Risky Captaincy Choice

Axar Patel: Axar Patel could be a good captaincy choice for this game. In recent India vs Australia Delhi test, we saw what he’s capable of. He’s in Good form and can get assistance on this pitch and finish the game with some long hits.
