MI vs DC Dream11: The clash for the playoff berth is really getting hot as the tournament advance to its business end. The matches are going down to the wire finishes. One such encounter will be witnessed in the match between defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and runner-up Delhi Capitals (DC) on Saturday, October 2.
Though the Delhi based franchise is seated in a comfortable position with eight wins from 11 matches, the team will look to confirm its playoff berth with a win against MI. Delhi has played really good cricket all this while in the UAE where they have managed to convert most of its matches to victories.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians started off slow again. However, they made a strong statement after winning against PBKS last night. Rohit Sharma and Co. will have a go at DC to strengthen their playoff chances which right now looks like a tricky situation.
The five times title winner has turned down the miracles into realities with their performances and will hope to continue their dominating run once again.

Teams: Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Delhi Capitals (DC)

MI vs DC Sharjah Cricket Stadium Pitch Report:
The shorter boundaries have often favoured the batter, but, the surface has behaved otherwise this season. Teams have found it tricky to breach a total of 200 in the Vivo IPL 2021 though, last time around the matches in Sharjah went past 200 almost all the time. The fans can still expect a close encounter of around 160-175 runs with the playoffs in stake.
