The IPL, which started yesterday, is being played today between Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, Punjab Kings, and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
In today’s first match, Delhi is facing Mumbai.
The match, which starts at 4.15 PM at the Brabourne Stadium, will be captained by Delhi’s Rishabh Pant while Mumbai will be led by Rohit Sharma.
Mumbai’s squad will face the absence of Surya Kumar Yadav while Delhi is certain that most of its foreign players will be unavailable for today’s clash.
If Mumbai takes advantage of the absence of David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, and Mustafizur Rahman, their victory will be assured.
The second match of the day is between Punjab and Bangalore. It will start at 8.45 PM.
The match at DY Patil Cricket Stadium will be even more exciting.
Mayank Agrawal, the young captain of Punjab, is ready to face the new captain of Bangalore, Faf du Plessis.
In today’s game, the absence of foreign players from Bangalore seems to be a problem.
Fap will be under pressure to replace Jonny Bairstow, Kagiso Rabada, Glenn Maxwell, and Josh Hazlewood.
Compared to Bangalore, Punjab has less shortage of players. If the opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and captain Agrawal last, they will be able to make a good total against Bangalore.
Last season’s champion team Chennai Super Kings lost to Kolkata Knight Riders by 6 wickets in the first match of IPL yesterday.
There will be two games in IPL tomorrow too.
In the first match, Gujarat Titans will take on Lucknow Super Giants while the second match will be between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals.
