In the last game just 5 days ago Dehli Capitals were very poor as they have been in the last 5 matches. They set a woeful target of 111 to win and Mumbai picked them off in 14.2 overs for the loss of just one wicket. This was one of five defeats in a row that took them from the top position to needing to win their last game to make sure they qualified safely.

Top players for each team
Mumbai Indians Batsmen
- De Kock 443
- I Kishan 428
- S Yadav 410
- R Sharma 364
- K Pollard 259
The top three have all had an excellent tournament and delivered lots of runs.
Dehli Capitals Batsmen
- S Dhawan 525
- S Iyer 421
- R Pant 282
- M Stoinis 249
- P Shaw 228
Not quite as impressive as the Indians but some good scores. Stoinis has had a much better tournament than in previous IPL’s. After Shaw they really lack any consistent runs from the middle and lower order, this seems to be where they have struggled in matches when the top order doesn’t perform, as the last game against Mumbai Indians.
Tip 2 (long shot) – 400+ runs in the match 11/1*
At 11/1 this is one of the longer odds bets we’ve selected in our cricket betting tips for the 2020 IPL. This is a bet that is the comb ended score of both of the teams to be over 400 runs. Both teams are capable of getting big score with the payers they have and this is 1 v 2 from the IPL table. We could see the opening team getting a big score followed by a big run chase!
Tip 3 (value bet) – Kagiso Rabada over 1.5 wickets 1/1*
Rabada is the top wicket-taking bowler in this years IPL with 25 wickets from 14 matches. If Dehli is going to take wickets in this match then you would expect to see Rabada taking them!
