Q & A:
Fantasy tips and tricks: Should I pick more bowlers, batsmen or all-rounders?
Mumbai will be keen on signing off from has been a wretched tournament for them this year despite entering it with a lot of hopes and promises. Mumbai will be looking to record a victory which should be their fourth but they will have to be at their best in all departments since Delhi or a much stronger side and have been playing impressive cricket across venues. For this contest, adding more to the batting as well as fast bowling department will be the right approach for making fantasy cricket playing XI.
Fantasy tips: From which team should I pick more players in my XI? Which team is stronger?
There is absolutely no doubt that Delhi, who have 7 wins from 13 matches and are currently placed 5th in the points table, are the stronger side and should have more players featuring in the fantasy cricket playing XI. Delhi will be totally geared up to put their best foot forward and bring out the best across all areas since it is a do or die match for the Rishabh Pant led team. On the other hand, for Mumbai, a victory to sign off with would be a huge motivational factor.
MORE INFORMATION: The equation for Delhi is simple on Saturday night — beat Mumbai by any margin and progress into the knockouts round of the ongoing Indian T20 cricket League 2022 tournament. A defeat, on the other hand, will ensure that Bangalore will progress into the final four round despite having a poor Net Run Rate (NRR) of -0.253 in comparison with Delhi (0.255).
PLAYERS’ FORM: Despite trying his best on several locations, Mumbai captain R Sharma has not been able to cross the 50 run mark at any in this tournament. On the other hand, Ishan Kishan has looked good but big scores have eluded him. Tilak Varma and Tim David will be the vital cogs in Mumbai batting lineup. For Delhi, the rise of Mitchell Marsh has been a shot in the arm at a time their explosive opening batsman Prithvi Shaw continue to recover, while David Warner, Rishabh Pant, Akshar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav and Khaleel Ahmed have been their key players.
