IPL 2020, MI vs DC, Qualifier 1: Shimron Hetmyer hits a shot during Match 51© BCCI/IPL
Former India cricketer Sanjay Bangar said it is not going to be easy for Mumbai Indians when they take on Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 1. Talking about the “good” combination that Delhi Capitals have, Bangar said the Shreyas Iyer-led side is the only team that can challenge Mumbai Indians. “Let me tell you one thing, when it goes to the Playoffs, no matter what has happened in the past, it’s on the day which team plays better cricket. Delhi Capitals, I agree might not have the experience of playing a lot of Playoff matches, but what they have undergone this season is very critical,” Bangar said while speaking on Star Sports show Game Plan.
“Success early on, failures were in the latter half of the tournament, and then a very good match to qualify for and play in the second spot. I believe that the kind of combination they have of good, young, experienced Indian batsmen, a battery of overseas fast bowlers, and Indian spinners, that is a good mix of experience, pace, youth and then if there’s one team that can challenge Mumbai Indians, its Delhi Capitals. So, be aware Mumbai Indians, it’s not going to be easy,” he added.
The league stage of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 concluded on Tuesday with Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) reaching the playoffs.
Mumbai Indians will lock horns with Delhi Capitals on Thursday while RCB will compete against SRH on Friday.
