The 51st match of IPL 2020 will be held at the Dubai International Stadium, played between Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians. The match will be kicked off on 31st October (Saturday) at 16:00 (GMT+6).
In the second half of the IPL, Delhi Capitals lost a bit of their way. Three games on the trot have been lost and they have yet to qualify. Their next rival, the Mumbai Indians, are the table-toppers and the only side to qualify for the playoffs stage. In the last few matches, Shreyas Iyer and his men have fallen behind and the sides seem to have a way of tackling them. To have a chance to defeat Mumbai Indians, they will have to come up with a herculean effort.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians was unstoppable in this season’s IPL. Kieron Pollard has led the team well, despite their regular skipper Rohit Sharma not playing the last few games, and apart from a blip against Rajasthan Royals, the four-time champions are playing some excellent cricket. They are going to hope that the winning momentum will keep going ahead of the playoffs.
The sun will shine brightly in Dubai in the afternoon. The temperature will stay around 30-32 Degree Celsius during the game, and there is no possibility of rainfall.
In Dubai, the surface was decent. In the afternoon, chasing teams performed better and the side winning the toss may choose to bowl first.

We have refrained from choosing Delhi Capitals’s other opener Prithvi Shaw or Ajinkya Rahane in our suggested sides with uncertainty over them. If Prithvi Shaw is playing, he can certainly be picked for this game as he will be eager to play a good knock. And, it is predicted that the table-topper Mumbai Indians will beat Delhi Capitals in this game. Let’s back the team at baji.live now!
