IPL 2021: DC vs MI match preview and predicted playing XI

The IPL 2020 season finalists will compete with each other in the 13th match of the 14th IPL edition. Mumbai Indians did emerge as victorious in the final, they’ll also hope to continue their winning streak in this match as well.

Delhi Capitals brimmed with confidence

Delhi Capitals made their intentions pretty clear in the opener itself. The Shaw-Dhawan opening duo has been magnificent for the team. They’re playing fearlessly in the Powerplay and enjoying each other’s company as Shikhar mentioned in the post-match conference. Not to forget, they’ve played all their games thus far in Wankhade. Whereas, Chepauk has been a tougher track to bat on, especially in the second innings. Delhi will need to adapt the conditions as quickly as possible considering the fact that they’re battling against a team who’ve won two consecutive matches at the same venue. DC’s batting has the firepower but do they have good players of spin? They need to have a look at the team combinations.

Will Mumbai Indians make a hat-trick of victories ?

After a heartbreaking defeat against RCB in the first match, MI has certainly come along really well. They defended the target despite a solid start from the opponents. Rahul Chahar has been the go-to man for skipper Rohit Sharma. Chasing in Chepauk has been strenuous for every team. DC has been chasing well, hence it’ll be a challenge for both sides. Pollard has got his form back with a Man of the Match award in his bag coming to this match. MI is certainly filled with a lot of confidence after coming back into the game being in a less desired position.

Pitch Report

Chepauk has proven to be a difficult surface to bat in the second innings. Chasing gets tougher and tougher as the game processes. Hence, batting first will be an obvious choice after winning the toss.
