Up against a resurgent Delhi Capitals, defending champions Mumbai Indians will need to address their middle-order woes if they are to go for a third consecutive win in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
While Delhi come into the match after beating Punjab Kings by six wickets at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai have recorded back-to-back victories by defending low totals, something a formidable opponents like DC may not offer.
This will be their 29th meeting. Mumbai Indians lead the head-to-head record, 16-12, including four last season - a league double, the Qualifier 1 and the big final.
