IPL 2021, Match 13: Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Mumbai Indians (MI)- Toss Report
Mumbai Indians (MI) have won the toss against Delhi Capitals (DC) in match 13 of IPL 2021 and elected to bat first. As far as both the teams are concerned, Mumbai Indians rested Marco Jansen in the last game and brought in Adam Mione, who didn’t prove effective. He might once again find his place on the bench against Delhi Capitals. Jayant Yadav has made his place for Adam Milne.
Delhi Capitals also rested Anrich Nortje in the last game and continued with Chris Woakes. A couple of changes might be seen in the Delhi Capitals’ side as Chennai has supported spinners and in such a scenario, Amit Mishra has found his place in the side. Ishant Sharma is also fit for the game against Mumbai but his inclusion seems a possibility far from reality.
Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Steven Smith, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Lalit Yadav, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Avesh Khan
Mumbai Indians (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock(w), Rohit Sharma(c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult
Mumbai Indians Start As Strong Favourites To Win The Tie
Mumbai Indians go in the 13th game of IPL 2021 as the strong favourites to win the game. They only lost their opening encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and then have gone on to beat Kolkata Knight Riders and SunRisers Hyderabad on the trot. Suryakumar Yadav has been in exceptional form with the bat and he’ll once again be crucial on a difficult Chennai track.
Rahul Chahar has also been Mumbai’s trump card in the last couple of games as he has picked 7 wickets in the last two games. Delhi might also bounce back if they win the toss and their spinner including Ravichandran Ashwin and Amit Mishra spin a web around the Mumbai batsmen, Winning the toss and batting first would be a sensible decision considering how difficult it has been to chase in the last few games in Chennai.
