Mumbai failed to enter the semifinals last year due to their poor net run rate. They finished third in the Super League Group B by winning three of their four games. However, the Suryakumar Yadav-led side will be determined to make it to the finals this time around and have a balanced squad that is capable of going all the way.
Delhi, on the other hand, made it to the Super League last year but lost their rhythm at the end. They only managed to pull off a single victory from their five games and finished at the bottom of the Super League Group A.
This year, Delhi will be bolstered inclusion of Shikhar Dhawan as skipper. They have some experienced players such as Ishant Sharma, Nitish Rana, and Pawan Negi in their arsenal and will hope for a better showing this time around.
This game is going to be an enticing one as both teams will be kicking off their campaign with this fixture and would like to start on a high note.
