17:32 (IST)20 Apr 2021
Adam Mlne or Jayant Yadav

Mumbai played Adam Milne in the previous game but considering the nature of the pitch, they could be tempted to bring in off-spinner Jayant Yadav, who played the 2020 final against the same opposition.

16:43 (IST)20 Apr 2021
Smith or Rahane?

Delhi opted for Australian Steve Smith on Sunday but, as they are next playing on the slow Chepauk track, they might go back to Ajinkya Rahane, who is looking better suited for such tracks.

15:56 (IST)20 Apr 2021
Delhi pace attack

Their pace attack is led by South African Kagiso Rabada and Chris Woakes, and the two have been impressive so far. They have an additional option in Anrich Notrje, who has also joined the squad. Delhi played four pacers in the game against Punjab, but in Chennai, they could play more spinners as the track is conducive for the slower bowlers. They have options in the experienced Amit Mishra, Pravin Dubey and new recruit Shams Mulani, who can complement Ravichandran Ashwin.

15:13 (IST)20 Apr 2021
DC vs MI: A mouthwatering contest

Rohit Sharma enjoys a good record against Delhi Capitals in IPL with 818 runs which has come at a strike rate of 133. Pant has scored 2160 runs in 71 IPL innings so far and needs 41 more runs to surpass Shreyas Iyer (2200), and become the highest run-getter for Delhi in the IPL.

Rohit Sharma’s knock of 68 and Boult’s three-wicket haul were crucial in bringing home the spoils for the fifth time for MI.

DC vs MI: Dhawan the danger man

Shikhar Dhawan has scored third-most runs against Mumbai Indians in IPL. So far he has scored 748 runs in 24 innings at an average of 39.36 against Mumbai.

14:55 (IST)20 Apr 2021
Mumbai strength

MI have the likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and his brother Krunal, who can pummel any attack into submission on their day, but they are yet to fire on all cylinders. After the last game, Rohit had conceded that his team "can bat a little better in the middle overs."

14:52 (IST)20 Apr 2021
DC vs MI: Bumrah vs Pant

Jasprit Bumrah is a big threat for Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant. This is because Bumrah has dismissed Pant 5 times in a space of 33 balls so far in the league.

14:51 (IST)20 Apr 2021
DC vs MI: Milestone Alert

Prithvi Shaw has scored 932 runs in 41 IPL innings so far. He needs 68 more runs to complete 1000 runs in IPL. He will become the second-youngest player to reach this landmark.
