3 weeks ago 7

Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Delhi Capitals (DC) in Qualifier 1 will kickstart the knockout stage of Indian Premier League 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday.

Mumbai Indians are bidding to go one step closer to their 6th final when they take on 2nd-placed Delhi Capitals in the first Qualifier of IPL 2020 on Thursday. The biggest positive for Mumbai has been the return of skipper Rohit Sharma, who had missed four games to recover from a hamstring injury.

Rohit Sharma's men finished the league stages on top of the points table with 18 points while Delhi Capitals ended a 4-match losing streak to sneak in at 2nd spot with 16 points. Both sides are meeting each other for the third time in IPL 2020.

In their first outing, MI defeated DC by five wickets on the back of Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav’s fifties. The second meeting was more a one-sided affair as MI rode Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult’s three-wicket hauls and Ishan Kishan’s 72*-run blitz to seal a nine-wicket win.

Mumbai Indians have played 11 play-offs matches over the years. They have won 6 of them and lost 5. Delhi Capitals have played in Qualifier 1 only once in the past.

MI vs DC Dream11 Team: Quinton de Kock (captain), Shikhar Dhawan (vice-captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, R Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Kagiso Rabada
