Mumbai Indians team has been the winner of IPL for years 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019. MI is an outstanding side, and they mostly retain the same side unless a major reason. Last year, some great invitees were there like Yuvraj Singh and Lasith Malinga. MI’s plans for the coming IPL would include tough decisions as their lot is packed already.
Delhi Capitals would wish that the new title brings them a better record than the earlier case. They were previously named Delhi Daredevils and finished last in the chart. They have Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Avesh Khan, Manjot Kalra, and Sandeep Lamichhane as their leading players that mostly stay as the key players in the team.
Last 5 matches:
MI vs DC
MI is considered a young side as most players from Delhi are yet fresh to exposure to much cricket and belongs to their early twenties. This also means that the Delhi side is filled with fresh talents that have great opportunities to flourish ahead in career and prove their worth. With Ricky Ponting as Coach and Sourav Ganguly as Advisor, the team must be looking to overcome the underperformed season of IPL 2019 and secure some big victories.
MI vs DC 2019
In the IPL season 2019, Mumbai was back on its winning horse. Mumbai had been doing every alternate year and managed to grab most trophies in IPL with this zigzag fashion. But this season a path-breaking moment came only after the 3rd match. This is when it was a Mumbai Indians versus Delhi Capitals clash. In this match, DC took away from MI with a blazing and balanced 43 by Captain Shikhar Dhawan and 47 by Colin Ingram. DC won by 37 runs.
This one was one of the most exciting matches of IPL season 2019, especially because of the magnificent inning by Rishabh Pant who immediately became a great national sensation after hitting a flashing inning with a half-century coming in only 18 balls. Though the record for fastest fifty is still not claimed for it is set to 14 balls, yet Rishabh had managed to get pass by the record set by Mahendra Singh Dhoni of Chennai Super Kings.
MI vs DC 2018
In VIVO IPL 2018, the Delhi Capitals (Delhi Daredevils then) managed to remain unsurpassed by Mumbai Indians. They came out as victorious in both clashes when they faced Mumbai Indians. In the first match between the two, it was Jason Roy who smashed unbeaten 91 runs off 53 balls and this brilliant inning easily brought Delhi Capitals to their first win of the 2018 season. Moreover, this victory had come just after a very lethal over by Mumbai Indians’ lead pacer Jasprit Bumrah. Due to that damaging over, Delhi Capitals needed 11 in the last over. However, Roy made it possible. He stayed on the pitch till the last ball and brought Delhi out victorious. The other matches between Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians also had a similar fate differently. Delhi Capitals made 174-4 in that second faceoff and they managed to get Mumbai bowled out for just 163 runs to finally register a clean victory with 11 runs. This last clash of Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium had cost Mumbai Indians their chances to stay in the run. They lost a place in the Playoffs and Delhi Capitals successfully deserted their hopes for the title. Delhi itself, however, had no chance to make it to playoffs already so this match proved out to be the final ladder to their IPL 2018 rundown.
MI vs DC Match Prediction
The Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma is now willing to open more than before as he has said. Rohit is the most destructive opener all around. The Delhi Capitals have Rohit’s Indian team opening partner with them. Shikhar Dhawan is also a great potential batsman and can out-shadow anyone when clicks at his best. Dhawan is also the most experienced player in DC’s line-up. He is supposed to stay at the pitch as long as he can and allow others to find a relaxing calm in the side. For the middle and final overs, they also have Rishabh Pant who claimed most number of sixes in IPL 2018 and has maintained his position as a destroyer of opposing bowling attack. MI will want two key pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell McClenaghan. They can make ground for spinners for the middle overs to tighten the screws. Delhi has Kagiso Rabada to open. Another budding option they have is Sandeep Lamichhane. He is a young leg-spinner from Nepal who has made quite a mark.
