The 27th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
The defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) have started this edition of the tournament on a great note. They have been the team to beat with four wins from six games. What is even more impressive is that they managed to register these victories by huge margins. Except for the hiccups against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), they have been consistent in all the other matches.
In their next encounter, they will be facing a team which has been just as consistent as them, if not better – the Delhi Capitals (DC). The Capitals have carried on with their fine run in the tournament and stunned the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their last match. They have once again proved that they have got the best bowling line-up in the tournament given that they managed to restrict the Royals to the lowest total thus far in Sharjah. If there is one that which can challenge MI given their current form in the tournament, it has to be the Capitals.
