Andhra will lock horns with Delhi in a Round II - Elite Group E match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday. Both teams have had contrasting starts to their respective domestic T20 campaigns.
Andhra lost their opening game of the tournament and are currently at the penultimate position in the Elite Group E points table. They were unable to defend a sub-par total of 107 runs against Haryana and Ambati Rayudu & co. will have to be at their best to defeat an in-form Delhi side.
Delhi, on the other hand, got off to a flying start and are placed atop the Elite Group E points table. They registered a massive 76-run victory over Mumbai in their first game. The Shikhar Dhawan-led side are looking in great touch and are favourites to register a second consecutive victory in the tournament.

Match: Andhra vs Delhi
Date: 13th January 2021, 12:00 PM IST
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
The track at the Wankhede Stadium has always been a batting-friendly one with an average 1st innings score of 157 runs.
The ball will come on to the bat nicely and the batsmen should be able to post healthy totals on the board. The bowlers will find it difficult to control the flow of runs on this ground with short boundaries.
However, the Wankhede Stadium's proximity to the Arabian Sea guarantees plenty of swing on offer for the bowlers.
