MI vs DC, Wankhede Stadium. The fate of RCB depends on Mumbai Indians! If Delhi Capitals wins this game, RCB will not qualify for the playoffs due to negative net run rate. RCB and MI fans do not go along well, but in this kind of situations every RCB fan will be cheering for MI to win.

Rohit Sharma is on the verge to complete 5000 runs for MI. He will be looking to complete the task in style.

DC has upper hand in terms of batting depth. Mitch Marsh is back in his destruction mode and Rovman Powell is looking in the zone too. Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, and Shrdul Thakur can also bat. In fact, DC won the previous match against MI because of  Lalit and Axar.

Wankhede's pitches are mostly neutral, but if the fresh pitch is used for the game, pacers bowling in the first inning will be important. To counter the left-handed batters, MI may go with off-spinner Hritik Shokeen. DC has Lalit Yadav as off-spinner.

At Wankhede Stadium:

Wankhede hasn't been kind to DC when it comes to winning the matches. MI has dominated the venue in overall records, but MI has also dominated DC at Wankhede. DC has managed to win total of only six games out of 16 games.
