High-octane action is expected as the two teams lock horns in Qualifier 1 in Dubai on Thursday. We have given MI vs DC T20 prediction (Qualifier 1) at the end, so stay tuned!
Going into the match, Mumbai have an edge since they have won both their league matches against Delhi. Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma’s return from a hamstring injury in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad is also a boost for the team.
On the eve of their playoff contest, many exciting bets are up for grabs in the IPL satta market.
Delhi were going through a poor form with 4 successive losses. But their victory over Bangalore in the last match is an indication of their return to form. Mumbai lost their last league match to Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 wickets. But they are still table toppers with 18 points, two more than Delhi. If you want to get involved in IPL betting, this is a great fixture.
In head-to-head record, Mumbai have won 14 times in 26 matches. You can place your IPL satta ahead of this one.

Rohit, Ishan and De Kock are expected to rise to the occasion. Suryakumar Yadav (410 runs in 13 innings), Saurabh Tiwary and captain Kieron Pollard can steer Mumbai clear if they are in dire straits. Bumrah, Boult and Rahul Chahar (15 wickets in 13 matches) will lead the bowling attack from the front.
