Delhi in trouble
All hopes for Delhi rest on Rishabh Pant in this match. The Delhi Capitals need 96 runs from 40 balls and therefore they will certainly need a flyer from Pant to win this match.

Mumbai Indians reach 100/3 in 14 overs
Krunal and Suryakumar are setting themselves up for a big finish at the Kotla. They have strung a partnership of 26 runs so far and if these two stay till the end then Mumbai can certainly hope for a big score.
Suryakumar and Krunal play cautiously
Suryakumar and Krunal are just looking to knock the ball around at the moment. They may start to look for the big shots after the 15th over. Mumbai: 92/3 in 13 overs.
Easy wicket for Delhi Capitals
Suryakumar hits a delivery from Axar to Rabada at backward point and takes off for a run. However, he realises that there is no run and there and turns back. Unfortunately, de Kock commits fully from the non striker’s end and both the Mumbai batsmen race for the striker’s end. The Delhi Capitals players smartly take off the bails at the non-striker’s end to run de Kock out for 35 runs.

Rabada misses the right length and Rohit wastes no time before pouncing on it. The Mumbai captain drives the delivery through the covers for a boundary. Mumbai: 12/0 in 2 overs.
Rohit Sharma guides a delivery from Ishant Sharma to the third man region and gets Mumbai Indians off the mark. Mumbai: 1/0 in 0.2 overs.
Revenge on MI’s mind
Mumbai Indians started their campaign with a loss against Delhi Capitals and this will be a great opportunity for Rohit Sharma and team to get one past city mate Shreyas Iyer and the Delhi gang to go ahead on the points table
Surprising decision of batting first
Rohit Sharma has decided to bat first and it is a surprising decision given the nature of T20 cricket where chasing teams always hold an edge. It has been slightly cold in the capital for the past two days so it has to be seen whether dew will be a factor or not. Here is what Rohit had to say after the toss, “We are batting first. We feel having played here quite a bit, we understand the nature of the pitch. Delhi are a smart team and they play very well here. We have two changes. One forced change. Ishan Kishan is sick, so he misses out. Jason Behreondoff is also out. Ben Cutting comes in and Jayant Yadav is playing. The team is coming together and every single individual is stepping up. It’s a good sign for us.”
Delhi: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Colin Munro, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Axar Patel, Chris Morris, Keemo Paul, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma
Mumbai: Rohit Sharma(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Jayant Yadav, Rahul Chahar, Ben Cutting, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah
Mumbai Indians have won the toss and elected to bat first. Rohit Sharma says during the toss that setting a total on the board is always better on such tracks. Shreyas Iyer reveals that Delhi are unchanged from their last game.
MI’s predicted XI
Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah
DC’s predicted XI
Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (WK), Colin Munro, Hanuma Vihari, Keemo Paul, Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Chris Morris
Milestone for Rohit
The MI skipper needs just 12 runs to complete 8000 runs in T20 cricket and he will become only the third Indian to achieve this feat. Chennai Super Kings’ Suresh Raina was the first to do so followed by Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli.
8216 in 295 innings: Suresh Raina
8183 in 246 innings: Virat Kohli
7988 in 293 innings: Rohit Sharma
Bumrah’s poor record
Bumrah has bowled 46 deliveries to opener Shikhar Dhawan in the past and he hasn’t managed to dismiss the southpaw even once. Moreover, Dhawan has hits Bumrah for 69 runs at an incredible strike-rate of 150. Last season, Prithvi Shaw faced just three deliveries from Bumrah and he scored 5 runs off it including a boundary. Among the current MI bowlers, Bumrah is the only bowler who hasn’t dismissed DC skipper Shreyas Iyer ever in the IPL. Iyer has smashed 28 runs off 15 Bumrah deliveries in the past, at a strike rate of 186.6.
Player battle - Rohit vs Ishant
Opener Rohit Sharma is on the verge of a milestone as he is just 12 runs away from becoming the third Indian to score 8000 T20 runs. However, he will have to deal with the pace of Ishant Sharma, who has been in good rhythm coming into this clash. Off 29 Ishant deliveries, Rohit has scored just 37 runs and he also has been dismissed by the pacer thrice.
Player battle - Hardik vs Axar
The peculiar case of two India all-rounders – one has been leading the team’s charge with both bat and ball while the other is yet to perform on a consistent basis. Hardik’s late cameos have been responsible for couple of MI victories this season and he could inflict similar damage on DC. Axar will be tasked with stopping him in the middle overs and he holds a decent record against him. Off 7 Axar deliveries, Hardik has scored 10 runs and has been dismissed once.
Player battle - de Kock vs Rabada
The battle between these two South Africans is arguably the most interesting battle to watch out for in this blockbuster clash. Quinton de Kock has been among the runs while his South African teammate Kagiso Rabada is the leading wicket-taker in the league. De Kock has faced just four deliveries from Rabada in IPL and has scored just 1 run. Expect these two to set the match alight tonight.
Player battle - Pant vs Bumrah
Middle-order batsman Rishabh Pant has been hot and cold this season but played an important role when Delhi beat Mumbai by 37 runs earlier this season. MI pacer Jasprit Bumrah holds a poor record against Delhi top three but has an impeccable record against Pant. Pant has scored just 26 runs off 24 Bumrah deliveries and has been dismissed by his India teammate thrice.
Player battle - Dhawan vs Malinga
Opener Shikhar Dhawan has been among the runs this season and he has been one of the main reasons for Delhi being at the second spot in IPL table. Against Mumbai, he will come up against his old nemesis in Lasith Malinga, who as caused troubles for the southpaw in the past. Dhawan has scored 69 runs off 46 Malinga deliveries but has been dismissed four times by the Sri Lankan.
MI also on a high
Like Capitals, Mumbai Indians are also getting better with each game and look a more potent outfit with the return of Lasith Malinga. All-rounder Hardik Pandya is also firing on all cylinders. Pandya, who smashed an unbeaten 37 off 16 balls in Bangalore on Thursday, has spoken about how time away from the game is helping him at the moment.
The focus will also be on the Kotla pitch which has already copped criticism for its slowish nature. Ponting had described it as the “worst possible” track for the home team after a loss earlier in the tournament.
The South African pace attack
The South African pace combine of Kagiso Rabada and Chris Morris have delivered for the team. Even in the previous game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, the two pacers shared seven wickets to fashion an unlikely win for Capitals who successfully defended 155 by bowling out the hosts for 116.
Delhi’s celebrated duo
The celebrated duo of head coach Ricky Ponting and mentor Sourav Ganguly has managed to instill belief in the team members and that is visible on the field. The team now seems to believe that it can win the title after a long spell as the perennial underachiever of the competition. “The support of the coaches Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly.. Their experience as a captain along with the belief they instill in us is great. At the same time the young boys in our team are also getting mature,” said senior player Shikhar Dhawan ahead of the game.
All eyes on Pant
Rishabh Pant will be in focus after his fiercely-debated World Cup exclusion when a buoyant Delhi aim to replicate its stellar away form at home against Mumbai. Pant has been mum on being ignored for the World Cup in favour of Dinesh Karthik and it would be interesting to see how the 21-year-old’s bat responds to the disappointment.
