Strategy Scenario 1 :MR2 / CS3 (Mumbai 4 – Awadhe 3)(Recommended Strategy for Mumbai)
Men’s Singles : Mumbai might again go with Guru SaiDutt after the Awadhe upset he caused yesterday. Will be a close match against Brice Leverdez, slightly in favor of Brice.
Men’s Doubles :Vladimir Ivanov,Mathias Boe against Pranaav Jerry Chopra,Toby Ng. The numbers are heavily in favor of Mumbai.
Women’s Singles : We missed Saina. Hopefully Sindhu doesn’t ditch. Should be a one-sided match which Chennai must win. Obvious TRUMP for Chennai. Hopefully they don’t mess.
Mixed Doubles :Chayut Triyachart, Kamilla Juhl against Chris Adcock,Sikki Reddy. Tight match, difficult to predict as with most mixed doubles.
Repeat Men’s Singles :H.S. Prannoy against Simon Santoso. Should be a easier match compared to the nail biter against Awadhe. But Simon Santoso is known to be seeded player killer (Ask Lee Chong Wei!).
The Alternate numbers show similar results for both teams, expected score from all strategies is integral to overall points prediction
