IPL 2024 Qualification Scenario

Mumbai Indians

MI have blown hot and cold in the tournament until now. After losing 3 games on the trot, they won back-to-back home games, but they have not been able to show enough consistency to go up the table. They will go into the game after losing to the Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 9 wickets.

Tilak Varma scored 65 runs off 45 and helped MI post 179 for 9 in 20 overs. Thereafter, Yashasvi Jaiswal smashed an unbeaten 104 as Mumbai slumped to their fifth defeat of the tournament. Piyush Chawla was the only wicket-taker for the Royals in the game against RR.

The outcome of the DC vs MI prediction will depend on how they manage to park aside the disappointment of their loss to the Royals.

Mumbai Indians Possible 11: Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Nehal Wadhera, Mohammad Nabi, Gerald Coetzee, Piyush Chawla, Jasprit Bumrah

DC vs MI toss prediction: Mumbai Indians to win the toss and field first

Player of the Match prediction: Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma is arguably one of the contenders to win the Player of the Match award. He has been in exceptional form and has been among the runs. The hundred he scored against CSK should keep him in good stead. Jasprit Bumrah has already won 2 POTM awards and one should not raise eyebrows if he wins his third POTM award.
