Head-to-head

The encounter between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals has been an extremely close affair with the five-time champions enjoying a narrow 16-15 advantage in the 31 matches against DC.

Stats

There will be interesting player battles on both ends as the duo of Khaleel Ahmed and Axar Patel have troubled Rohit Sharma in the past as they have dismissed him three times and have not conceded more than run-a-ball. On the other end, Jasprit Bumrah will be looking forward to facing Rishabh Pant ā€“ a batsman he has dismissed six times with just 47 runs conceded in 42 deliveries.

Trivia

It has been a contrasting story for both side when it comes to opening partnerships as the pair of Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma have the second-best record in the tournament while DCā€™s opening pairs have produced just 21 runs in the last five matches for the first wicket. However, there is some good news as David Warner enjoys facing MI and with six fifties and a strike rate of 138.87 against the five-time champions, the Australia batsman will be a key asset for DC in their playoff race.
