MI vs DC Dream11 Team Prediction | Qualifier 1 | Dream11 IPL 2020

Mumbai Indians will take on Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 1 of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. We will provide MI vs DC Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Mumbai Indians:

Mumbai Indians have played brilliantly, finished the league stage at the top of the points table with nine wins and five losses, and 18 points.

Rohit Sharma has recovered from injury and has played the previous match, but he did not score much. His opening partner Quinton de Kock has been batting very well, and scoring runs from the top. At No.3, Surya Kumar Yadav has been in excellent form from the past few matches, and scoring runs consistently.

The youngster Ishan Kishan has appeared to be more comfortable batting up the order than in the middle-order. Hardik Pandya has been rested for the past few matches, but he will be playing the Qualifier, and he is excellent in the role of a finisher. 

Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya have also appeared to be in perfect form this season with the bat and have hit big sixes down the order in most matches. The spin duo Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya are doing a decent job of picking up wickets and controlling the flow of runs in the middle overs.

The bowling department has been brilliant with players like Bumrah and Boult, who are amongst the top wicket-takers of this season. They have been the significant reason for Mumbai Indians’ success so far this season.

They were rested for the last match, but they will be back into the playoffs team. James Pattinson has also done a decent job picking up wickets, but he has been expensive in most of the matches.

Mumbai Indians have played so far this season; if they continue to play the same way, winning the Qualifier must be a cakewalk.

  • Rohit Sharma will open the inning along with Quinton de Kock.
  • Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, allrounder Hardik Pandya, and Kieron Pollard will form the team’s middle order.
  • Krunal Pandya will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • James Pattinson/N Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult, and Jasprit Bumrah will handle the team’s pace attack.
  • Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya will be the spin duo of the group.

Delhi Capitals:

After losing four consecutive matches, Delhi Capitals finally managed to win their last league stage match. As a result, they ended up at the 2nd position on the points table with eight wins and six losses and a total of 16 points.

Dhawan’s struggle to score runs came to an end as he batted brilliantly, scoring a fifty in the last match. Prithvi Shaw is still looking out of touch and has been struggling a lot this season. The senior batsman Ajinkya Rahane appeared to be in the right touch as he scored a fifty in the last match.

Skipper Shreyas and the explosive wicket-keeper batsman have been silent as they haven’t played big shots from the past few matches. They need to get back to form if they want to win against a team like MI.

Marcus Stoinis played brilliantly at the start of the innings, but he has struggled with both bat and ball in the last few matches, which has been a big concern for the team. Axar Patel has done a decent job as an allrounder, and he needs to maintain the same consistency.

The spin department lead by Ravichandran Ashwin has been decent so far, but in some of the matches, he has been very expensive. Their main strength is that the fast bowling department had gone for many runs in the last few games, but they appeared to be back in form in the previous match.

Kagiso Rabada went wicketless for two consecutive matches bowled well in the last game, picking up two wickets. He was accompanied by another speedster Anrich Nortje who bowled brilliantly, picking up three wickets.

If Delhi Capitals wants to win Qualifier 1, their middle-order batsmen and allrounders need to give their best performance.

  • Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw will open the innings for DC.
  • Ajinkya Rahane, Skipper Shreyas Iyer, and Rishab Pant 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 Daniel Sams.
