Mumbai Indians have almost every single player in their playing 11 clicking at least once. That leaves very little scope for them to alter their line-up. We do however wait to see Chris Lynn sometime this season.
MI Predicted XI
Rohit Sharma (C)
Quinton de Kock (WK)
Delhi Capitals, as they were before the tournament started, the most balanced side this season. Their trust on Harshal Patel has paid off so far as well. Least expect any changes to such a crucial game from Delhi.
DC Predicted XI
Shreyas Iyer (C)
Rishabh Pant (WK)
Let's look at the IPL 2020 MI vs DC My11Circle Prediction now followed by a few stats and observations explaining each pick
WK: Ishan Kishan, Quinton de Kock, Rishabh Pant
BAT: Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer, Kieron Pollard (VC), Prithvi Shaw
ALL: Marcus Stoinis (C)
BLR: Kagiso Rabada, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Ishan Kishan, ever since his inception with a memorable 99 against against RCB, has been right on top of his form. Quinton de Kock has the lowest average in Mumbai's top 6, but is capable of handling DC's bowling order well. Rishabh Pant 42.4 for DC against MI having scored 212 runs in 6 innings.
Kieron Pollard has been out only once out of the five times he has come out to bat. He is averaging 163 at a strike rate of 200. Rohit Sharma is Mumbai’s current top run-scorer this season with 212 runs from 6 innings. He will be responsible for taking Mumbai off to a good start. Shreyas Iyer has 203 runs so far and is currently Delhi’s top-scorer. The Delhi Captain will be responsible to stabilize the innings in case the top-order falls to Mumbai's lethal opening bowling pair. Prithvi Shaw has been in good form at the top of Delhi’s top-order having scored 198 runs at a strike rate of 151.
He will have the job of neutralising Trent Boult's excellence up top.
Marcus Stoinis player a handy knock of 39 runs in the last game while also picking up two wickets for 17 runs. He has the highest strike rate in Delhi’s batting lineup and has scored 162 runs so far. He has also picked up 5 wickets so far and has hence been selected as Captain of our MI vs DC My11Circle Team.
Purple Cap holder Kagiso Rabada has distanced himself at the top with 15 wickets, 4 more than second placed Jasprit Bumrah, who too features in our MI vs DC My11Circle Team. Our third bowler, incidentally also the third name in Purple Cap list, is Trent Boult. With 10 wickets at an average of 18, he has been lethal with the new ball for Mumbai.
Three of tournament's leading wicket-takers, all at work. Such is today's contest, which we hope will deliver the highest fantasy point aggregate of IPL 2020 so far.
