Despite the fact that the average first-innings score over the last three IPL games was 155, the pitch in Delhi is preferred to be good for batting. fact that spinners have taken the majority of the wickets in the last three IPL games, there should be support for the pacers. The fact that over 30% of the wickets fell during the powerplay phase suggests that assistance with the new ball was available. Toss would play crucial role as both teams will try to chase, with dew maybe becoming a factor as the game goes on.
