Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Madhya Pradesh and Mumbai are set to lock horns in the Group D clash at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday. The hosts Mumbai are sitting comfortably at the top of the table having defeated Mizoram and Haryana comfortably in their first couple of outings. Despite Shivam Dube and Shreyas Iyer not being part of the team at the moment, they have done extremely well and once the duo joins after Sunday’s T20I against Bangladesh, Mumbai will get even stronger.

Madhya Pradesh, on the other hand, are doing well too. They would be disappointed that their opening game against Puducherry was washed out. But then the team put up a very good show against Assam to win the match by five wickets. It wouldn’t be an easy task for them to go past Mumbai. It is expected to be an interesting encounter between these two teams.

Weather Condition

Mumbai’s weather will be fine on Monday for a game of cricket to take place. There is no rain threat whatsoever while the humidity will be at its peak as usual. The temperature will hover around 31-32 Degrees Celsius according to AccuWeather.

Pitch Report

The surface at the Wankhede is generally known for batting. But one-sided matches have taken place so far at the venue. However, Haryana scored 153 batting first and if Mumbai bat first, they can also post a formidable total on the board. Having said that, expect the teams to win the toss and opt to bowl which has been the trend so far.

Average first innings score: 119 (In three matches played at the venue so far)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 1
