Predictions For IPL 2021 Match 13 Delhi Capitals VS Mumbai Indians

Delhi Capitals (DC) will meet Mumbai Indians (MI) in match 13 of IPL 2021 in Chennai today. And it is the first time that the bitter rivals are facing each other in the ongoing IPL season. Both were the IPL finalists in the last season. MI won their fifth IPL title by defeating DC in the IPL 2020 final.

What is the current position of MI and DC in IPL 2021?

Rohit Sharma led MI team have won two matches in a row after losing the season opener to Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai. But they are still ahead of their rival as they have experience of playing at Chepauk Stadium, Chennai.

Pant-led DC seems eager to settle scores with the defending champions MI. Also, DC has gained much confidence by defeating Punjab Kings (PBKS) by 6-wickets on Sunday evening. But they have yet to start their Chennai leg and it is where they lose their edge to MI. Delhi Capitals really need to work hard on their strategy. Also, MI defeated DC in all four matches in last season.

What was the record of DC at Chepauk?

The records show that DC has been a loser in the last six games they played at Chepauk. And they lost all the matches to Dhoni-led CSK camp. The last match they won in Chennai was in 2010.

Since chasing runs at Chepauk has been a tough thing to do, the team that bats first will have an upper hand. So, the toss will decide who will get an advantage.

Fakhar-Zaman-run-out

Controversial Run Out Of Pakistani Batsman Fakhar Zaman By South Africa Wicket Keeper Quinton de Kock

Pakistan lost the 2nd ODI to South Africa in Johannesburg on Sunday when its start batsman Fakhar Zaman was run out controversially. How Fakhar Zaman was out is a breach of fair play rule 41.

Match summary

South Africa batted first and set a target of 342 runs for Pakistan that could make only 324 runs at 9 wickets when Fakhar Zaman was run out in the last over. At that time, Pakistan was only 31 runs short of winning the match.

How was Fakhar Zaman run out?

Fakhar Zaman was batting on 193 and it was the last over of the match. He was at the striker’s end to face the ball. He played the ball towards the off-side and ran for a single but asked the runner to come for a second. He started running towards the striker’s end when the Australian wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock distracted his attention by asking the fielder who took the ball to throw it to the non-striker’s end. Fakhar Zaman looked back in distraction when the fielder threw the ball at the striker’s end. The ball hit the stumps when Fakhar Zama was short of his ground.

What does international cricket rule 41 say about the fair game?

The rule deters players from distracting batsmen. And here Quinton de Kock distracted Fakhar Zaman by pretending that the ball would hit the non-striker’s end but in reality, he wanted the ball at the striker’s end.
