Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants: Weather Forecast And Pitch Report of Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai- IPL 2022 Match 45
Conditions have been hot and humid for cricket in Mumbai. The temperatures have been around 40-45 degrees and will remain the same. This being a day game, dew will not have an impact on the match. However, the pitch will now start to turn and grip more with the tournament reaching its second half of the season. Kuldeep Yadav‘s spell against KKR is a very good example to show what kind of turn the spinners can expect from the Wankhede track now.
Delhi restricted KKR under 150 in the last match played at this venue. However, in a day game more runs can be expected to be scored by the team batting first.
