The Delhi Capitals (DC) are on a three-match winning streak and are in the second position of the points table in the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Their most recent triumph against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the RGI Stadium in Hyderabad would give them a lot of confidence as they inflicted a harakiri in the Sunrisers’ batting lineup, picking up the last eight wickets for a mere 15 runs.
Their next match will be tomorrow against the Mumbai Indians (MI), whom they beat in their first game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. This time around, the task may not be as simple as the Mumbai-based franchise has won four of their last five matches and have scaled to the third spot. Rohit Sharma and Co’s past triumph came against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Bangalore.
The match starts at 08:00 PM local time (14:30 GMT).
The game will be live on Star Sports in India
The climate will be on the cooler side with the temperature between the 25 and 27-degree Celsius mark. The humidity won’t be daunting as well. The dew point will be somewhere in the range of 17 and 20. Best of all, there is no possibility of rain throughout the day.

The pitch has behaved a tad indifferent at times. The track has given help to the spinners and on instances, batsmen have likewise had the able to dominate. Additionally, with dew settling in, batting second is by all accounts the favored alternative for both teams, who have enough firepower in the tank.
