The Delhi Capitals (DC) are on a three-match winning streak and are in the second position of the points table in the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Their latest victory against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the RGI Stadium in Hyderabad would give them a lot of confidence as they inflicted a harakiri in the Sunrisers’ batting lineup, picking up the last eight wickets for a mere 15 runs.

Their next match will be tomorrow against the Mumbai Indians (MI), whom they beat in their first game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. This time around, the task may not be as easy as the Mumbai-based franchise has won four of their last five matches and have climbed up to the third spot. Rohit Sharma and Co’s previous triumph came against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Bangalore.
