Mumbai Indians will take on Delhi Capitals in the first playoff of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time
With league matches done and dusted, it’s the time for the all-important playoffs. One team between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals will march into the final while the other team will have another shot against the winner of the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrises Hyderabad. So who do you have their noses ahead in this match- We certainly want to put our money on Mumbai Indians. Sunrisers Hyderabad thrashed Mumbai in the last game but they were without the services of Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult and Hardik Pandya, all of them are expected to be back for this match. Mumbai as a team look a ruthless unit with all their players at the peak of their form.
Delhi Capitals on the other hand ended their losing streak after an emphatic victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore. Delhi will be jubilant to see Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane back among the runs but the form of Prithvi Shaw will continue to be the nemesis for them. Shreyas Iyer too has not been in the best of form of late while Rishabh Pant has struggled to score runs at a brisk pace. In the bowling department Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been fantastic but the rest of the bowling looks bleak. Delhi has quite a few loop holes in their team which they need to address before the match.

MI vs DC Toss Prediction
Toss can’t be predicted but teams might opt to chase considering the dew factor.
