IPL 2019, DC vs MI: Ground stats, head-to-head record, key players and predicted XI
After registering three consecutive victories, Delhi Capitals are set to host Mumbai Indians at the Feroz Shah Kotla tomorrow night. The hosts would be brimming with confidence post their string of successful performances in the recent games, while the Blue Army will be determined to avenge their 37-run defeat against Delhi Capitals in the opening fixture.
Currently, they occupy the second spot in the IPL points table on the back of five victories in their eight outings. Shreyas Iyer is leading his side from the front, scoring the most runs (266) for the Delhi franchise this season.
With Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant, Delhi possess an explosive batting lineup which can take apart any bowling attack.
Mumbai Indians have also managed to get their campaign back on track after a slow start. Having won five games and lost three, the visitors are placed at the third spot in the points table, only trailing behind Delhi on Net Run Rate.
Lasith Malinga made a sensational comeback in the previous encounter, producing some brilliant death overs bowling, to help his side register another win. Mumbai have to continue bowling well on the tricky pitch of Kotla if they want to dominate the fixture tomorrow night.
