Despite a forgettable campaign, Mumbai Indians will have the RCB and SRH fans rooting for them in this game. An MI win will see Delhi Capitals out of the tournament. The fight for the fourth spot will be then between RCB, SRH, and PBKS depending on their net run- rate.

DC have all to play for as they gear up to face Mumbai Indians. They have won their last two games against RR and PBKS to still stay alive in the tournament. Without Prithvi Shaw, they are struggling to get good starts up at the top as no one is staying alongside David Warner.
However, Mitchell Marsh‘s form in the middle-order has come as a boon for them. The form of the two Aussies with the bat will decide the fate of DC. Rishabh Pant, who has blown cold this season so far, needs to stand up for his team in their last door die game.
