The side that wins the toss would choose to bowl first, which we believe is a significant advantage. In Chennai, the team that batted first has won the last five matches, while the team that chased has won just one.

The Delhi Capitals have won two of their three IPL 2021 matches so far, the same as the Mumbai Indians, against whom they will play this match. Both teams are in the top half of the IPL table after a good start to the season, and this match will be one of the most critical of the season.

This fight is also noteworthy because of the typical Delhi-Mumbai rivalry in all facets of life.

In the fact that both teams have been successful, there have been a few flaws that have emerged. In this match, the team that exploits the other’s flaws the most will come out on top. Don’t underestimate the impact that the playing surface would have on this match.

The IPL 2021 match between Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians will be held at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on April 20th, 2021.



So far in IPL 2021, the Delhi Capitals have made several unusual squad selections. With Lalit Yadav at number six and Chris Woakes at number seven, they are down to only five batsmen.

With all due respect to Lalit Yadav, this batting lineup is extremely thin and vulnerable to early wickets. We saw how Delhi Capitals struggled to reach a respectable total in their match against Rajasthan Royals.

Shikhar Dhawan is in fine shape, but the rest of the lineup is still a work in progress. After a risky knock in the first match, Prithvi Shaw has had two low scores, and Steve Smith is batting at number three, but his IPL record remains unconvincing. Rishab Pant has been in excellent form in recent months and is an important part of the lineup; but, with only Stoinis to pursue, he may be unable to play his natural game.

To lengthen the batting and include another performing Indian bowler, the Delhi Capitals should replace Chris Woakes with someone like Sam Billings. The return of Axar Patel and Ishant Sharma should help them to strengthen the team’s balance.

The Delhi Capitals have an average bowling attack, with only Kagiso Rabada standing out. Avesh Khan has performed admirably, but the bowling attack of Chris Woakes, Lukman Meriwala, and Lalit Yadav is unlikely to cause much problems for the top batsmen.

The Delhi Capitals have always had issues with their squad balance, and moving to Chennai for their next match would only exacerbate the situation.


Mumbai Indians have staged two fantastic escapes thanks to their outstanding bowling lineup since losing the first match of IPL 2021. In the middle overs, Rahul Chahar has been outstanding, while Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have been outstanding at the end of the innings.

Mumbai Indians have a great bowling attack with Krunal Pandya and Adam Milne in the lineup from the previous match. In reality, if required, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard are both capable of bowling their quota of overs.

The Mumbai Indians were able to defend two par scores in Chennai thanks to this lineup.

The real challenge will be to improve the batsmen’s efficiency. In the previous match, we saw Rohit Sharma start much more positively and begin to find his rhythm, while Suryajumar Yadav seems to be in his own world. Suryakumar Yadav has looked more at home at the crease than any other batsman in the tournament.

Quinton de Kock and Kieron Pollard both scored runs in the previous match. Just Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya are genuine frontline batsmen who are still searching for the big score. Although the Mumbai Indians are not well ahead of the Delhi Capitals in terms of current batting style, we believe MI has a significant advantage over DC in terms of batting order depth.
