Date & Time: 05th November 2020 at 7:30 PM IST

Strength

Delhi Capitals:

  • DC has a strong batting line-up. Top-5 packed by top Indian batsmen along with Stoinis makes them a strong force.
  • The Proteas duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje has been impressive in this tournament so far.
  • A well balanced and settled batting eleven.

Mumbai Indians:

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

  • A highly potent top-order batting which has a blend of youth and experience.
  • A strong middle order with power-packed finishers.
  • All their pacers have been pretty good in the early part of the innings.

Weakness

Delhi Capitals:

  • The form of Rishab Pant and Prithvi Shaw is a huge worry.
  • If Rabada gets hit, then their bowling unit fails to regroup together as it was clearly evident from the matches that they lost.

Mumbai Indians:

  • The spin department of Mumbai looks weak compared to the rest of the teams in IPL 2020.
  • If by chance Bumrah and Boult get hit, then they are a very weak bowling unit as it was clearly visible from the last match against SRH where they failed to take a wicket in the absence of these two.
