MI vs DC Dream11 Prediction: After 56 tussles for the ages, here we are on the day of IPL play-offs for this historic edition. In Qualifier 1, top 2 teams on the points table – Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals will lock horns at Dubai for a place in the finale. Winner will directly qualify for the summit clash while loser will have to play another match to give them a chance to qualify. We will preview MI vs DC Dream11 contest.
Mumbai Indians are coming off from the worst day of their campaign in the last league match. But they wouldn’t read too much into that as their key players were rested as there was nothing to gain from that encounter. Batting first at Sharjah, returning Rohit Sharma was dismissed very early. Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan had a decent partnership in the middle but once former was gone, they had a procession for a while. Kieron Pollard landed some handy blows in the end overs to push the score to 149. In reply, MI bowlers lacked the cutting edge in absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult as they struggled right from the word go. David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha ensured a 10-wicket routing of the defending champions.
Delhi Capitals should be high on confidence after they were able to stop their losing streak in a high-pressure situation against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last match. As a result of their win, DC ensured a top 2 qualification in the league. Bowling first, bowlers kept RCB under check even when they were not picking up wickets. Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada were back to their best with 3 & 2 scalps respectively. Ravichandran Ashwin also picked up a crucial one of Virat Kohli as RCB were allowed to put only 152 on the board. In the chase, Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane were involved in a partnership that sealed the fortunes of Delhi Capitals. They lost couple of wickets in the end but chased down the target comfortably to book their play-offs spot.
In head-to-head comparisons, Mumbai Indians are slightly ahead with a lead of 14-12 from 26 matches played between these two sides. In last 5 matches, Mumbai Indians have won 3 of those matches. Both matches this year have gone Mumbai Indians’ way in convincing manners. On last Saturday, MI handed a hiding by 9 wickets to the Capitals at the same venue.
Pitch and Conditions
The pitches at Dubai haven’t seen the transformation like other venues as surfaces have been still good for batting. A fresh pitch today will only mean more batting friendly conditions. But as expected in November, due will play a major role in the second innings today. Both the teams are likely to chase to deny any advantages to the opposition.
