Mumbai vs Delhi on November 5


Mumbai Indians, the defending champions, have defended their Indian Premier League title with utmost dominance thus far. Though they lost to the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 wickets in their last league game, they managed to finish atop the points table. Rohit Sharma and Co are now scheduled to play the Qualifier 1 against the Delhi Capitals on Thursday, November 5, in Dubai. In the league stage, MI got past the Capitals both times. In fact, in their last meeting, Mumbai eased past DC by nine wickets. Shreyas Iyer’s men won’t be low in confidence though after beating the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous match. The Capitals also ceased their four-match losing streak, much to their relief. But beating an in-form MI won’t be easy for them by any means.

Best economical pick Suryakumar Yadav is having his breakthrough IPL season. He is not only amassing runs but doing it at a quick rate. Yadav has scored 410 runs in 13 innings at a strike rate of 150 and has recorded 3 half-centuries. The right-hander has a 360-degree range and has shown a great deal of calmness and maturity in run-chases.

Top captains & vice captains Quinton de Kock is currently the leading run-scorer for Mumbai this season and has given MI quick starts throughout. He has scored 443 runs at an average of 36.9 and a strike rate of 138. The South-African took extra responsibility in the absence of Rohit Sharma. Now with Sharma back in the team, the left-hander will have more freedom to play his shots. The 27-year-old has been sharp behind the stumps. Shreyas Iyer sparkled with a thunderous 88* against KKR in Sharjah. But apart from that, he has looked a tad off colour. However, that he has scored 421 runs in 14 innings at an average of 32.38 with two fifties should give confidence. DC haven’t played in the final for a number of years and the youngster will be looking to play a captain’s knock and guide his team.

Smart pick Rohit Sharma returned from his hamstring injury the other day, but he got out cheaply. However, keeping in mind the potential he has, he can take on DC’s star-studded bowling attack with ease. In the 10 matches he has played, the 33-year-old has notched 264 runs at an average of 26.40. Moreover, the right-hander has the experience of playing at the big stage across most tournaments.

Cautious Pick – Shimron Hetmyer has given a disappointing performance. In their second meeting against MI, he lost his wicket for 11 runs after in a hurry to play a shot. He was dropped against RCB.


My XI – Quinton de Kock (Captain), Shreyas Iyer (Vice-Captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Jasprit Bumrah, Anrich Nortje, Ishan Kishan, Rahul Chahar, Marcus Stoinis
