Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s LIVE coverage of the Qualifier 1 between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai.
Head-to-head: (26 matches – MI 14| DC 12)
The two teams have faced each other 26 times in the IPL so far, and MI has dominated the fixture by winning it 14 times, as opposed to DC’s 12 wins.
Last IPL meeting:
MI (111/1 in 14.2 overs) beat DC (110/9 in 20 overs) by 9 wickets.
In their reverse league stage fixture of this edition, the sides locked horns in Dubai on October 31, Saturday. It was a one-sided affair as Mumbai trumped Delhi by a convincing nine-wicket win. Bowling first, Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah ran through DC’s batting line-up with a three-wicket haul each. In response, youngster Ishan Kishan smashed a 47-ball 72 to see his team over the line.
Defending champion Mumbai Indians may have been thrashed by 10 wickets by Sunrisers Hyderabad, but going into Thursday’s first qualifier against Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Stadium, it is the firm favourite.
For MI, Tuesday’s game was a dead-rubber, having already sealed top spot. It used the opportunity to rest three of its best players in Jasprit Bumrah (23 wickets), Trent Boult (20 wickets) and Hardik Pandya, a luxury most teams cannot afford. That’s how much of a well-oiled machine MI is.
If anything, the match against SRH can be considered a positive, for skipper Rohit Sharma emerged unscathed after his return from a hamstring injury.
