Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Mumbai Indians (MI), Match 51 | Match 51 of the IPL 2020 pits Delhi Capitals against the table toppers Mumbai Indians, which will be the first match to be played on Saturday, October 31.
MI have just become the first team to make the playoffs after Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday. They have won eight of the twelve games it has played, highest by any team. And though they are missing their hitman Rohit Sharma owing to a hamstring injury, there is plenty of talent to take the team through.
DC have also been one of the top performers this season and is strong contenders of the final four but lately they have had a difficult run. They have lost three games in a row now (against KXIP, KKR and SRH), which is a major cause for concern. In their last match, they were completely outplayed by SRH as they lost by a massive margin of 88 runs. Even in the match before, they lost by 59 runs to KKR. They definitely need a course correction here as despite being among the top three teams, things can change quickly in IPL. They must win here to consolidate their position. Also, being among the top 2 will pay them well in the long run.
MI have just beaten the second best team RCB in a match that saw Suryakumar Yadav play a superb knock of 79 runs off 43 balls to get his team over the finishing line and he deserves all the praise coming his way. MI will try to maintain its top position so it is placed in a comfortable position during the playoffs. If Sharma, who has resumed practice, finds his way back in the Playing XI, it will certainly be a big advantage for the team.
