In the last 5 games between these two teams, Mumbai Indians have dominated Delhi Capitals by winning 5-0 against them. In IPL 2020, MI defeated DC 4 times including Qualifier-1 and Final. MI shave a strong core and their all-round ability has helped them dominate a strong side like DC in the previous season. MI's contribution in the fielding department has also been stunning, with the likes of Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard in their side
However, in this season so far MI haven't produced big totals while batting and players like Hardik Pandya and Ishan Kishan have not performed to their potential so far in this season. The team batting first is likely to get an advantage of winning the match and it will be interesting to see how DC can counter-attack a team which has a strong bowling line-up.
