Sixth vs seventh in the table but considering both teams can still make the play-offs, this game offers a big opportunity to both sides to get that statement win going into the final round of games. #IPL2021 #MI #IPL #IPLUAE
Back in the reckoning for play-offs, Eoin Morgan's team look to get the better of #DelhiCapitals who are assured of top-four finish.
They have lost three in a row and need to win all of their remaining matches as they face Punjab Kings on September 28th.
After fluffing their lines in spectacular fashion, KL Rahul & Co come up against whipping boys Sunrisers Hyderabad. For the former, this is a big opportunity to put pressure on the likes of #MumbaiIndians who don't play till Sunday.
Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings have been hit by a number of high-profile players pulling out of the second leg. Royals skipper #SanjuSamson will have to be more consistent and lead from the front. Do watch out for England leggie Adil Rashid, who will be playing for Punjab in his first-ever IPL stint.
Virat Kohli & Co., placed ideally in the table, will take a big step towards the Playoff stages if they can beat Kolkata, who need a big second half to even be in contention. Do keep an eye on the number of new players Bangalore have got in.
