Mumbai Indians (MI) & Delhi Capitals (DC) will face each other at the 46th Match of Vivo IPL 2021. The match will be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah, UAE on 2nd October at 3.30 PM IST.
MI vs DC: IPL 2021: Preview
Mumbai Indians were very badly in need of a win after losing their first 3 matches of the UAE leg. They were victorious against Punjab kings in the last game but they are still at a very delicate situation. MI have 10 points from 11 matches with just 1 win out of their 4 matches in the second leg. They cannot afford to lose this match as they might be on a back foot in the fourth place chase alongside KKR currently.
Delhi Capitals suffered their first loss in the second leg after hat-trick of wins and will be eager to get back to winning ways in this match. They are in a very good position currently but will look to qualify for the next stage very early and look to come in the first 2 places of the points table. DC has 16 points from 11 matches with 3 wins in 4 matches in the second leg.

MI vs DC: IPL 2021: Match Prediction
DC has a very strong batting line-up with quality players at top-5 and Prithvi Shaw might make a comeback in this match. They miss Marcus Stoinis in the lower order as they don’t have a good all-rounder to replace him. They also have an experienced bowling unit in pace and spin departments. MI`s middle order is struggling and Pollard and Pandya`s return to form last game will be a big boost. Their bowling attack looks fairly better with contributions from 5-6 players. We expect DC to win this match owing to their all-round abilities and recent form.
