DC needs to win the remaining fixtures to guarantee a spot in the playoffs. With their current form, it looks like an uphill battle for the team. DC boasts of excellent batsmen like Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer, and Pant and an incredible bowling attack with Rabada, Nortje, and Ashwin. But, the failure of one department or the other consistently in the recent games has led to Delhi’s failure. DC is facing a stable and strong Mumbai side in this weekend’s clash, where DC needs the 2 points to confirm their qualification.
Possible – 11
Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (WK), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tushar Deshpande.
MI, the first team to qualify in this IPL season, is very explicitly dominating the other teams. After being qualified, they’ll be looking to experiment with their bench strength with new players in the 11. However, MI will also be eying a top 2 spot to have a second chance at finals even if they fail to progress in their first game. The return of Captain Rohit Sharma is highly anticipated, yet the chances are looking skeptical. MI will be looking to exert their dominance over DC in this game.
Possible – 11
Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieran Pollard, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.
Comfortably ahead, MI will be experimenting with their bench strength, while DC will be going on an all-out attack to win the game. In what seems to be a thrilling clash, MI will most likely come out on top.
Mumbai Indians will be having an edge to win this clash.
