Mumbai Indians will be squaring up against Delhi Capitals in match 46 of IPL 2021 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. The match will commence on Saturday, October 2 at 03:30 PM IST. Here are our MI vs DC Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
MI vs DC Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Are MI back in the race?
Mumbai Indians suffered 3 back to back defeats after landing in UAE. But it was the loss against RCB that stung them hard. MI bounced back in their own inimitable style against Punjab. The return to form of Hardik Pandya augurs well for MI heading into the final stages of the tournament. Even though they are better placed than the likes of Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals, MI can ill afford a misstep at this juncture. They will be up against the second-ranked DC. It won’t get any better than this.
Do DC struggle in slow wickets?
Delhi Capitals looked unstoppable in the truer wickets of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. But they looked completely out of sorts in Sharjah. The slow low nature of the wicket didn’t aid the Capitals. Their batsmen were found wanting on such a pitch. Even their bowlers who had dominated opposition up until then were unsure about their lengths. They will have their task cut out against a resurgent MI side baying for blood.
