Mumbai Indians have nothing to lose in this game. They are already at the bottom and despite a win, they won't be able to do anything but regain their pride. They can however assist Bangalore to go into the playoffs if they win. Despite being at the bottom they have a big role to play in deciding the top half. Their season has been awful and they have the least number of points of all the competing teams. Mumbai will be looking to do a lot of changes and give a debut to young talents. Mumbai is coming on the back of a narrow defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Mumbai Indians Predicted Lineup
Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Daniel Sams, Tilak Varma, Ramandeep Singh, Tristan Stubbs, Tim David, Sanjay Yadav/Basil Thampi, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith/Fabian Allen, Mayank Markande
Delhi's equation is simple, they win they go through to the playoffs. There is too much riding on this game and they have to play with this extra pressure. Delhi has done well in recent games and made a journey to reach this position when at one time looked almost out of this playoff race. They have a higher run rate than Bangalore which means that won't be an issue if they win their game against Mumbai. Delhi is coming on the back of a victory against the Punjab Kings.
Delhi Capitals Predicted Lineup
David Warner, Sarfaraz Khan/Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed
