The pitch at the Wankhede promises to provide a high scoring thriller
The bounce on the pitch at the Wankhede Stadium has been very true and has always given audiences and fans complete worth for their money. One can bank on the pitch and outfield to expect a high scoring thriller.
There is something in for the bowlers especially spinners as the tournament moves on, but usually, there’s a complete value for shots and batsmen can go with their instinct and attack the bowlers.
After the opener of the VIVO IPL 2019, proving to be a damp squib where CSK’s spinners steamrolled RCB, everyone is hoping that the pitch and outfield at the Wankhede stays as it has been over the years and that the viewers and the spectators can get to see a high scoring thriller.
The Pandya brothers will be in action
Among the strong points for MI is the fact that they have two extremely talented and gifted T20 players and allrounders in their squad. Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya rose to fame and have made it to the national team based on their consistent performances for MI.
With the World Cup coming up, everyone would be eagerly interested to see how many games Hardik plays in this year’s IPL. He is coming off an injury and the last thing Indian fans would want is for him to aggravate that while playing for MI.
But goes without saying that Rohit Sharma would use both the Pandya brothers at crucial junctures.
Shreyas Iyer’s captaincy and batting for a new franchise
In a quest to redeem their fortunes, Delhi Daredevils have renamed themselves and are called Delhi Capitals now. Coached by Ricky Pointing and captained by Shreyas Iyer, they clearly are looking for a fresh start.
They have talent in their squad in the form of Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Chris Morris, Trent Boult, and Kagiso Rabada. But that has been the case with DD earlier as well, They had some fine players but weren’t able to come together as a team often enough.
Under the talented Iyer, DC have clearly decided to bank talent over experience. Everyone would be eagerly looking forward to see how the captaincy of DC would impact Iyer the batsman in this season of the IPL.
