POINTS TABLE | FIXTURES
Capitals will only get a sighting of the pitch on match day. For them, Tuesday’s game will be about more than just proving a point against the most prolific team in the IPL.
The loss in last year’s final must still be hurting. But the fact that they were outplayed by Mumbai Indians in all four encounters last season must have dented their ego and confidence.
Capitals go in to the match with some momentum having easily chased down a 196-run target against Punjab Kings on Sunday night. However, while the Wankhede square may have been smooth drive, they are likely to find rough plains at Chepauk.
Mumbai Indians have decoded the sluggish pitch in Chennai. It’s been a win-toss-bat-first surface in the first 10 days of the pitch.
They have successfully defended a total of 150 twice in their last two games.
