Delhi Capitals will take on Mumbai Indians in the 51st Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. We will provide DC vs MI Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.
After performing brilliantly in the first half of the tournament, Delhi Capitals struggles very much in the second half. They have lost three consecutive matches and are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with seven wins and five losses and 14 points.
Dhawan, who was looking in superb form, got out for a duck, and he has not been able to score runs in double digits for the past couple of matches. Ajinkya Rahane has also not been much useful this season and has struggled a lot to score runs.
Skipper Shreyas has played some perfect innings and has played Captain very well, but the last three matches haven’t gone his way. Wicket-Keeper batsman Rishab Pant, known for his big-hitting abilities, has played very slowly and did not play a few games due to injury.
Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel, who won a couple of games for DC, have been looking slightly out of form. Ravichandran Ashwin has been picking up wickets, but at the same time, he has been leaking a lot of runs. The youngster Tushar Deshpande who looked impressive at the begging has gone for many runs in the last two matches.
Their main strike bowler and the current leading wicket-taker, Kagiso Rabada, went wicketless after 26 matches in IPL and also was very expensive. Nortje was also a little costly but managed to pick up a wicket in the last game.
Delhi Capitals need to be careful now as they cannot afford any more losses because the other teams are playing well, and they need to win this match to confirm their place in the playoffs.
- Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane/Prithvi Shaw will open the innings for DC.
- Skipper Shreyas Iyer, Rishab Pant, and S Hetmyer will form the team’s middle order.
- All-rounders Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel will be crucial in the lower middle order.
- Axar Patel and R Ashwin will be the spin attack of the team.
- The team’s core pace attack will consist of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Tushar Deshpande/Harshal Patel.

Mumbai Indians have been playing brilliantly as they are currently at the top of the points table with eight wins and four losses and a total of 16 points. They are officially the first team to qualify for playoffs this season.

Suryakumar Yadav batting at No.3 has appeared to be in sublime form this season, batting at a strike rate of 150. Saurabh Tiwary, who has come into the team in place of Rohit, has been batting decently this season. The lower middle order of MI is the best among all the sections with players like Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, and Krunal Pandya.
Kieron Pollard is currently handling the role of captaincy and has been doing the job very well. Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar have been excellent in the middle overs and consistently picked up wickets.
Mumbai’s pace attack is one of the best this season as Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult are among the Top 5 wicket-takers of this season. James Pattinson has also bowled well and picked up wickets when required for the team.
Overall, Mumbai Indians look very strong, and they might go on to defend the title this season.
