Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Match 43 of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians go head to head on Saturday afternoon at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. Delhi Capitals have won four of nine matches so far with Mumbai Indians winning three from eight. Read on as we preview this clash. The game begins in Delhi at 15:30 local time on Saturday 27th April.

Delhi Capitals came out on top of a very close but high scoring clash against Gujarat Titans earlier this week and they continue to move up the table after their disappointing start. They will fancy their chances at home but are likely to have a tough contest against Mumbai Indians.

Mumbai Indians put in a poor bowling performance in the last game and their recent form now looks much worse as a result. However, the team is packed full of world class players, many who have performed well already in the tournament and we expect them to come out on top in this match.

DC vs MI Match Toss Prediction

Teams batting second have a narrow advantage historically at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in IPL matches. And with the temperature likely to be high during both innings, we predict that both skippers will approach the toss wanting to field first.

DC vs MI Pitch Report

We saw 444 runs scored and 12 wickets fall at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Wednesday evening and we expect to see another good batting surface for this match. The ball will continue to come onto the bat at a good pace throughout the afternoon so the opening bowlers will have the best chance to pick up wickets when the ball is still swinging.

Delhi Weather Report

It is going to very hot on Saturday afternoon in Delhi with the temperature unlikely to drop below 35 degrees across the match. Low humidity and a very small chance of rain is forecast.

DC Team News

There was a big surprise at the toss ahead of the win over Gujarat Titans with David Warner left out of the side and although he will be pushing Shai Hope very close for his place in the team, we expect Warner to be on the sidelines again. Ishant Sharma is expected to return from his ankle and back injuries for this match.

DC Key Players

  • Rishabh Pant – The keeper-batter looks to be not only back to his best but have taken his game to a higher level this season. He hit five fours and eight sixes against Gujarat Titans.
  • Jake Fraser-McGurk – the Australian right-hander has been one of the breakthrough stars of the tournament so far and he hit 23 runs at a strike-rate of 164.29 in the last game at the top of the order.
  • Axar Patel – The all-rounder was only outplayed by his skipper in the last match when he hit 66 with the bat before taking 1/28 with the ball.
  • Kuldeep Yadav – The Indian all-format spinner got two key wickets against Gujarat Titans and he has six dismissals from his last two games.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Praveen Dubey, Rasikh Dar Salam, Sumit Kumar, Kumar Kushagra, Lalit Yadav

Rasikh Dar Salam came off the substitutes bench to pick up three wickets in the last game and we expect him and Prithvi Shaw to interchange between the bowling and batting innings.

DC Team Form

Delhi Capitals won only one of their opening five matches but have since won three of their last four.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Axar Patel, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Tristan Stubbs, Abishek Porel, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar

MI Team News

There were two changes to the XI from their previous match for Mumbai Indians with Nehal Wadhera and Piyush Chawla coming in for Akash Madhwal and Shreyas Gopal. With the exception of Vishnu Vinod, who has been ruled out of the tournament, the rest of the squad are available for this match.

MI Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma – With an average of 43.29 from eight matches so far in this IPL, the experienced opener is back to his best. He has only once previously averaged over 40 in an IPL campaign.
  • Tilak Varma – The 21 year old left-hander is having an excellent tournament and top scored for Mumbai Indians with 65 runs from 45 balls against Rajasthan Royals.
  • Jasprit Bumrah – The right-arm fast bowler has gone wicketless twice in the IPL 2024 but still has a strike-rate of 14.76 in the tournament this year and took 2/22 in the last match against Delhi Capitals.
  • Piyush Chawla – The experienced spinner impressed on his return to the team and got the big wicket of Jos Buttler with a wrong’un that bowled the in-form English opener.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Nuwan Thushara, Akash Madhwal, Naman Dhir, Shams Mulani, Dewald Brevis

Sri Lankan pace bowler Nuwan Thushara came in for Suryakumar Yadav in the last match but a spinner like Shams Mulani could be a stronger bowling option on this pitch in Delhi.

MI Team Form

Mumbai Indians have lost two of their last three games but had won three of their four previous matches ahead of their defeat against Rajasthan Royals.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Mohammad Nabi, Nehal Wadhera, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Gerald Coetzee, Piyush Chawla, Jasprit Bumrah
