The fast bowler didn’t come out to bat as the Mumbai Indians were bowled out for 176 runs. ((Full scorecard))

Partnership needed

Shikhar Dhawan holds the key for Delhi after a poor start. He and Colin Ingram will have to put on a good partnership here to take them to a good score.

20:30 hrs IST

Dhawan greets Hardik in style

Hardik Pandya was introduced into the attack by Rohit and the all-rounder is greeted by Shikhar Dhawan with a boundary on the off-side. Wickets may have fallen for Delhi but if Dhawan gets going, expect the visitors to put up a big score in this clash.

Another no-ball from Salam

Youngster Rasikh Salam bowls his second no-ball in as many overs. He got away with the first one but is now hit by Iyer for a boundary. The young pacer from J&K seems a bit nervous and he needs someone to calm himself down.

20:14 hrs IST

Iyer makes his intentions clear

Rasikh Salam bowls short and wide and DC skipper Shreyas Iyer hits the ball on the up for a boundary towards extra covers. Iyer ended the recently-concluded Syed Mushtaq T20 tournament as the second highest run-getter and he will look to produce similar performances in the cash-rich league.

20:10 hrs IST

Shaw departs early

Mitchell McClenaghan has provided MI with the perfect start as he gets rid of young Prithvi Shaw. The left arm pacer produces an edge off the bat of Shaw and the keeper does the rest. Shaw departs for 7 as DC are off to a bad start.

Pratik: MI’s predicted XI

Here is my predicted XI for this clash - Rohit Sharma, Quinton De Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Ben Cutting, Krunal Pandya, Mayank Markande, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah

19:20 hrs IST

Rohan: DC’s impressive pace battery

Delhi Capitals have managed to put together a stunning pace attack and they will certainly cause problems this time around. Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Trent Boult and Chris Morris will be the heartbeat of their bowling and the likes of Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan and Nathu Singh are capable of providing able support to them.

19:15 hrs IST

Pratik: MI’s world class all-rounders

The reason why Mumbai have done so well in recent times is because they have managed to retain the core of their squad. Pandya brothers, Pollard and Cutting will be joined by Yuvraj this time around and these all-rounders have the capability of inflicting severe damage on the opposition.

19:10 hrs IST

Rohan: Young but bold skipper

Shreyas Iyer might be just 24 year old but he no rookie. Iyer has been playing for a long time now and also has experience on his side. In the recently-concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy 2019, he ended as the second highest run-scorer with 484 runs, inclusive of two tons - 147 and 103*. He will now look to bring that form into IPL and lead from the front.

19:00 hrs IST

Pratik: Captain Marvel

Let’s begin with Rohit Sharma, who has led MI to three glorious IPL titles. He is the third highest-scorer in the history of the league and will look to add to his tally this season. He is also the fourth most successful captain in the history of IPL. He has won 51 out of 89 matches in the tournament and is only behind MS Dhoni (59.12%), Sachin Tendulkar (58.82%) and Anil Kumble (57.69%).

18:51 hrs IST

Rohan: ‘Roar Machaa’

Delhi Capital are also ready to roar this season. DC are filled with youngsters who are out to prove a point to the best in business. Everything is new expect for the return of a certain ‘Gabbar’ who could act as a catalyst and fire the side to glory.

18:41 hrs IST

Pratik: Where do I start?

Three time champions. One of the most consistent teams in the history. Big ticket-players and an iconic stadium. Mumbai Indians are well equipped to shake off their last season blues and take the tournament by storm this time around. Not to forget the skipper who will want to make amends after a rather uncharacteristic tournament last season.

18:30 hrs IST

Hello and welcome

A very warm welcome for the second IPL match of the day between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals. My name is Pratik Sagar, cricket correspondent at Hindustan Times and I will try to present the case why I think MI will go onto win this match at the Wankhede Stadium. My fellow cricket correspondent Rohan Pathak will put forward his case for the rechristened Delhi Capitals side and why he feels they will start the tournament with a bang.
