IPL 2020, MI vs DC preview: Little to separate as ambitious Delhi Capitals face mighty Mumbai Indians
The team to beat in the league stage, four-time winners Mumbai lost a bit of their momentum after a 10-wicket defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday.
Mumbai Indians showed once again why they were the first team to qualify for the playoffs when teams below them are scrambling to try and sneak into the top four.
Defending champions Mumbai Indians dished out a clinical performance as they first restricted Delhi Capitals to 162 for four and then returned to overhaul the target
Chasing 163, the defending champions overhauled the target with two balls to spare and claimed the top spot in the points table with five wins from seven matches so far.
It was going to be a battle between Delhi's strong and in-form batting line-up versus Mumbai's versatile attack.
Dhawan gave himself enough time to play sheet anchor's role even as MI bowlers did a decent job in the slog overs to not let the batsmen play too many big shots.
The 24 matches between the two have seen the teams win 12 each.
