In the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League, it is now time for the laggards of the points table, Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians, to fight a battle against each other. The Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi will play host for the 16th game of the T20 Championship as the two teams will be eager to score their first win and move up the points table.
Delhi Capitals are playing without their regular skipper Rishabh Pant, under the leadership of David Warner. The team has been struggling in the league right from the beginning as they lost their first game against Lucknow Super Giants by 50 runs. This was followed by the Capitals failing to defend 162 runs against the defending champions Gujarat Titans and losing by six wickets.
In their most recent game of cricket, Delhi went one-on-one against Rajasthan Royals. It was again a batting failure for the 2020 finalists as they ended up with only 142 runs while following a massive total of 199 runs in their allotted 20 overs. The three back-to-back defeats have placed the team at the bottom of the points table.
Just like Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians are also finding it difficult to find their winning rhythm. They have lost both of their league games so far and are yet to open their account in the points tally. The team is positioned above DC in the standings because of a better net run rate.
In their opening match of the Indian Premier League 2023, Mumbai Indians were beaten by Royal Challengers Bangalore. The eight-wicket loss came as the team could not defend 171 runs in 20 overs. Their performance in the second match was no better as Chennai Super Kings hammered them by seven wickets. MI scored only 157 runs in the first innings and CSK chased the total within 18.1 overs.
