MI vs DC Dream11 Team Prediction: The Delhi Capitals might have already virtually assured a place in the IPL 2021 play-offs but that will not be a hindrance in their quest for victory when they face Mumbai Indians under Rohit Sharma on Saturday (October 2). However, a win is more needed for defending champions Mumbai Indians because with 10 points from 11 games they need victory in all the three remaining games to be in the race for Play-offs, otherwise they will have to wait for other’s mercy.
It is a discomforting situation for Mumbai but not an alien one as they had clawed back to contention in the past too, and even went on to win the title from a near no-hope situation. Mumbai will be banking on that single-willed performance once again when they come up against Delhi. The Kolkata Knight Riders had shown that the Capitals batting line-up can be contained when these two sides faced each other a couple of days ago. Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians informed that bowler Arjun Tendulkar has been ruled out for the remainder of the IPL 2021 season following an injury. The defending champions have added Simarjeet Singh to the squad as Arjun’s replacement. “Mumbai Indians have added Simarjeet Singh as an injury replacement to Arjun Tendulkar for the remainder of their IPL 2021 season,” Mumbai Indians said in a statement. “The right arm medium fast bowler has started training with the team after completing the mandatory quarantine as per IPL 2021 guidelines,” it added. Ahead of the resumption of IPL 2021, Mumbai Indians named Gujarat’s left-arm medium-pacer Roosh Kalaria in their squad in place of Mohsin Khan. Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians returned to winning ways after they beat Punjab Kings by six wickets on Tuesday. Mumbai Indians chased the target of 136 in 19 overs with the loss of just 4 wickets.
Mumbai Indians were able to rise up to the occasion in their last match that can boost their fighting spirit.
Mumbai Indians won against PBKS with great bowling control followed by a good batting performance which was lacking in their previous games in the UAE.
Delhi Capitals will try to stay right behind CSK with the aim to climb the top of the table which smells trouble for MI.
