After three back-to-back defeats in IPL 2023, Delhi Capitals are all set to host Mumbai Indians on April 11 at Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. Meanwhile, their opponent on the night, Mumbai Indians too haven’t won a single match this season as neither their bowling nor their batting has looked impressive so far. Skipper Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav’s form is also a huge matter of concern as Rohit himself agreed that seniors need to step up now.
Delhi’s captain David Warner meanwhile is on a different platform. Even though he is among the top run-scorers and is in the race to win IPL Orange Cap, the southpaw’s strike rate is a massive concern. Prithvi Shaw’s form is another thing that the team needs to address immediately. On the other hand, Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel are in good form at the moment and are likely to play a key part against Mumbai.

DC vs MI Probable Best Performers
Probable best batter
The southpaw is playing well and is among the top run-getters and is expected to succeed again. However, he needs to concentrate on his strike rate and he has the ability to hand Delhi their first win of the season. The Australia international has scored 158 runs from three matches so far.
Probable best bowler
The left-hand quick can trouble MI’s top order with the new ball. So far, Khaleel has picked up three wickets in three matches and thus, there’s room for improvement but players like Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav find it difficult to play against left-arm pacers and thus, Khaleel can take advantage of that.
