In the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 Elite E Group today, Delhi and Haryana will go against each other. For the top spot, both teams are competing and it will be a critical match for both sides. Delhi lost a trick in their 3rd match after 2 consecutive wins against Mumbai and Andhra and was outplayed by Kerala, which dropped them down to 3rd place in the standings with 8 points and a net run-rate of 1,579.
Their bowlers couldn’t protect the target against Kerala even after scoring 212 runs, and they need to tackle this problem and develop a better strategy in the remaining matches. Skipper Shikhar Dhawan is back in form, which is a positive sign for them. On the other hand, Haryana has won all 3 of their matches played in this tournament and is currently in 2nd place with 12 points in the standings.
Bowling has been their greatest strength, and in 3 matches they have not conceded 150 plus runs. With Mohit Sharma, Jayant Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal, we have a good bowling line-up. Himanshu Rana and Shivam Chauhan depended primarily on their batting. As both sides are competing for the top spot, it’s going to be an intense fight.
The temperature would be between 25~27 degrees Celsius, with a humidity of 55%. As there is no possibility of precipitation, it will be a complete match.
The pitch is perfect for bat on at the Wankhede Stadium, so the bowlers have little room for error.
While the pitch may be mostly batsman-friendly, the pacers can get some extra bounce off the field. There’s not much turn on offer for the spinners, which in the middle overs could make their lives difficult.
Ideally, both teams will want to chase, with 180 runs possibly at this venue to be a par-score.
