Four time IPL champion Mumbai Indians have displayed an outstanding performance in this season of IPL 2020. A few batsmen of MI like Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya have impressed cricket lovers with their batting skills in the tournament. On the other hand, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult of Mumbai Indians have accounted for 43 wickets this season.
Delhi Capitals have also had a good season so far. They ended on the second spot on the IPL 2020 points table in the league matches. However, Delhi’s team do not look balanced.

In comparison to their batsmen, Delhi Capitals’ bowlers like Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada and Axar Patel have shown more consistency. These three bowlers have delivered in almost all clashes, barring a few.
Rohit Sharma, the captain of Mumbai Indians, has returned to the side. With his re-entry, Mumbai are expected to have an added advantage in the Qualifier 1 match. It is to be seen which team will make it directly to the finals.
