Preview – MI vs DC GoodGamer Fantasy Contest
Delhi Capitals, who finished third in last year’s IPL, have continued their tremendous form this season and lead the league with five victories in six matches. DC, led by Shreyas Iyer, not only registered a comprehensive 46-run win over Rajasthan Royals in their previous game, but also defended a score of less than 200 at Sharjah—something that looked highly unlikely after all the high-scoring matches at the venue in the IPL 2020 so far.
DC now face Mumbai Indians, the defending IPL champions, who have four victories from six games. After losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore in a Super Over thriller, MI have sealed three wins in a row.
Injury and Availability News
DC seem to have their starting XI more or less sorted. But with pacers doing well in Abu Dhabi, there is a chance for Iyer to opt for Ishant Sharma, who has featured in only one game this season.
For MI, everyone is in form and an unchanged XI is expected. However, the details on Nathan Coulter-Nile’s availability are still awaited.

MI – Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), SuryaKumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
DC – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje
