Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals: Battles to watch out for

The IPL 2019 promises to be another thrilling affair.

In match three of the tournament, we will witness former champions Mumbai Indians (MI) taking on Delhi Capitals (DC) in Mumbai on Sunday.

While both the teams have a star-studded side, there are a few interesting battles to watch out for in this match.

Let us analyze these key battles which might determine the outcome.

Rohit vs Mishra

Captain vs Veteran Spinner

Captain vs Veteran Spinner

MI skipper Rohit Sharma had an average season in 2018. However, this term, he is set to don the role of the opener again.

Tonight, Rohit should watch out for DC's unpredictable leg-spinner Amit Mishra, who would be looking to spoil his party.

This might be the last tournament for Mishra, as he would be eyeing his first title success with DC.

Yuvraj vs Axar

Yuvi's tough test against an Indian spinner

India's swashbuckling batsman Yuvraj Singh might have faded out, but he will be out to prove his critics wrong.

He would be put to a tough test, especially against Indian counterpart Axar Patel, when Yuvi faces his deceptive spin.

While both the players might not get a national call-up soon, they would like to draw the attention of selectors with a fine performance.

Can the Windies all-rounder survive the Nepalese nugget?

MI's powerful all-rounder Kieron Pollard is one of the senior most players in the side.

As he would be looking to get MI to a winning start, he is all set to face tough competition from the new Nepalese spin sensation Sandeep Lamichhane.

Having claimed 45 wickets from 36 matches at an average of 19.24, Lamichhane is surely a top man for DC.

Quinton vs Boult

Quinnie must watch out for deadly thunderbolt

South African wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock has been in a great form of late as he has been scoring runs with ease

While he would be looking to get off to a good start in against Delhi, things would become deadly if he fails to survive the lethal thunderbolts of Kiwi pacer Trent Boult.

Indeed, this battle is this author's personal favorite.

Bumrah vs Dhawan

Can Bumrah spoil Dhawan's party?

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah is currently one of the top bowlers, while opener Shikhar Dhawan too is a genuine match-winner.

Dhawan would be looking to score runs this season, keeping in mind the upcoming World Cup. On the other hand, Bumrah has always been lethal with the new ball.

Therefore, it would certainly be interesting to see who has the last laugh.
