IPL 2020 MI vs DC Today’s Match Prediction: In the first qualifier of IPL 2020 tournament here on Thursday the strong side of Mumbai Indians, who have a lot of experience of playing big matches, will lock horns against the newcomer Delhi Capitals, who performed brilliantly in the current season of Indian Premier League (IPL). The four-time champions Mumbai team is in great form but their 10-wicket loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday has upset their rhythm. On the other hand, Delhi, after losing four consecutive matches, defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by six wickets to finish second in the IPL 2020 Points Table. This win will definitely boost his morale. A positive aspect for the Mumbai team is the return of its captain Rohit Sharma, who missed four matches due to hamstring. The star opener, however, returned to the pavilion early against the Sunrisers. The defending champions have aggressive batsmen and excellent bowlers but their batsmen could not perform against the Sunrisers in the last league game. Their bowlers were also unable to get wickets and it was a lesson for them before the important match that no match should be taken easily.

- Overall Prediction
Delhi’s middle order has failed to perform as expected. The team has been mainly dependent on one or two players. Mumbai’s top order has done well. The young Ishan Kishan (428 runs) has emerged as its leading batsman. Quinton de Kock (443 runs) will be ready to continue his superb form. After them, Suryakumar Yadav (410 runs) has played his role well. Hardik Pandya (241 runs), Kieron Pollard (259 runs) and Krunal Pandya (95) are adept at playing long shots and have shown their skills well when needed in the entire IPL T20 tournament.
