DC vs MI match preview

Delhi Capitals

Capitals find themselves at the bottom of the points table with losses in all three games. The last fixture saw them giving away 199 against Rajasthan Royals, with Mukesh Kumar picking two wickets. In the batting unit, David Warner tried hard with a knock of 65, but DC lost the game by 57 runs. 

The Warner-led side are likely to trust the Playing XI of their last league match, in order to infuse confidence into the squad. 

DC Possible 11: David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Abishek Porel (wk), Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians are at the penultimate position in the points table with losses in both games. In their last outing against Chennai Super Kings, MI managed to score 157, with Tim David and Ishan Kishan scoring 30+ runs each. Then, the bowlers could not do well, as the opposition secured an easy victory. 

They are likely to bring Jofra Archer in the side, which can add a lethal weapon in the side. Interestingly, Shams Mulani can get a chance due to the slow surface at Delhi. 

MI Possible 11: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Tristan Stubbs/Jofra Archer, Arshad Khan, Hrithik Shokeen, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendorff

Pitch and expected weather conditions

Generally, the pitch at Delhi stays on the slower side, with spinners playing a key role in containing runs and taking wickets. The totals of around 160 should be a competitive score on this pitch, given the bowlers do their job well. 

The weather will stay around 25 degree celsius during the match hours, with humidity of 40%.  

DC vs MI Dream11 prediction

Wicket keepers: Ishan Kishan
Batters: Rohit Sharma, David Warner, Suryakumar Yadav, Rovman Powell, Tilak Varma
All-rounders: Axar Patel
Bowlers: Jofra Archer, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed

Recommended captain: David Warner
Recommended vice-captain: Tilak Varma

Ishan Kishan is a better option available in the wicketkeeper category. The left hander can take the attack to the opposition in the powerplay overs as well. Rohit Sharma and David Warner are must-have players irrespective of their form when it comes to T20 format. Suryakumar Yadav might be struggling at the moment but he is a match-winner and can turn out to be a game-changing pick. Axar Patel is only the better all rounder available for this match with Cameron Green not doing much so far. Among bowlers, Jofra Archer is expected to play, hence he has been picked while Nortje and Kuldeep are wicket-takers.

Match prediction: Delhi Capitals to win

Mumbai Indians middle-order and bowlers have been a weakness for them since the last season due to inexperience. In the last two games, the likes of Cameron Green and Suryakumar Yadav have failed to contribute enough, which has put a lot of pressure on the team. 

Capitals, on the other hand, have elegant batters, and the proven bowlers like Kuldeep Yadav and Anrich Nortje in their ranks. They are expected to open their account in IPL 2023. 

Toss prediction: DC to win the toss and bat first

The Capitals have a well-rounded bowling attack, who are experienced in the shortest format. If they win the toss, the David Warner-led side will look to bat first and post a quality score on the board, and then defend the score. 

Man of the match prediction: David Warner

The Delhi Capitals captain has been accumulating runs in a consistent manner. Although the old Warner is missing, and the strike rates are down, the southpaw will look to dictate terms after his heavy criticism. Warner is likely to score a match-winning fifty and bag the Player of the Match award. 

Betting odds

Delhi Capitals – 2.1
Mumbai Indians – 1.75

The betting odds certainly tell a different story, as Mumbai Indians are predicted to win the game by a good margin. It remains to be seen whether MI’s batting department and bowling unit can be proficient together to secure a victory for the franchise.
