Preview

The Delhi Capitals (DC) have lost their way a bit in the second half of the IPL. They have lost three matches on the trot and are yet to qualify. Their next opponents are the table-toppers and the only team to qualify for the playoffs, Mumbai Indians (MI). Shreyas Iyer and his men have fallen behind in the last few games and the teams seem to have figures out a way to tackle them. They will have to come up with a herculean effort to have a chance to beat MI.

MI, on the other hand, have been unstoppable this season. Despite their regular skipper Rohit Sharma not playing the last few matches, Kieron Pollard has led the team well and apart from a blip against Rajasthan Royals (RR), the four-time champions are playing some exceptional cricket. They will be hoping to keep the winning momentum going ahead of the playoffs.

DC vs MI Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:

Quinton de Kock has been in terrific form for MI. He has scored 392 runs in 12 matches at an average of 39.2 and a strike-rate of 140.

Jasprit Bumrah is the highest wicket-taker for the four-time champions. He has so far picked 20 wickets and is only behind Kagiso Rabada in the purple cap race.

Shikhar Dhawan has struggled a bit after his four consecutive 50+ scores including two back to back hundreds. But with the team desperate for win, expect him to fire.
