The Mumbai Indians are the most successful team in the Indian Premier League (IPL), but they will be trying to rebound from a dismal season when they take on the Delhi Capitals at Brabourne Stadium on Saturday. Last season, MI was unable to make the playoffs due to a lower net run rate.
They’ll be facing a DC team that has been on the rise for the past two seasons. The last three meetings between DC and MI have resulted in a DC victory.
On the other hand, MI will have to reckon with history on Saturday. They’ve only won the first match of an IPL season four times, with the most recent victory coming in 2012. Meanwhile, in their first match of the season, DC has won seven times.
MI skipper Rohit Sharma: “We don’t leave any stone untouched.”
