The rivalry between the two sides has been intense. Out of 22 games head to head, both teams have won 11 game apiece. But Delhi Capitals has had the edge over Mumbai Indians in recent times. In IPL 2018, Delhi had defeated Mumbai in both the matches. The defeat in the second game also saw MI being knocked out of contention for a playoff spot.
The hosts would be itching to avenge those victories. At home, they are a strong unit and hard to defeat. On the other hand, DC has some exciting young talents who would look to get the better of the opposition yet again.
Mumbai Indians Strength and Weakness
Mumbai Indians possess a very strong squad. Their batting line-up is formidable. Having powerful hitters in the line-up, they are capable of chasing any total. Also, due to the presence of Jasprit Bumrah, they have one of the best bowlers of the format as well.
But MI is known to be a side that starts slow. In the last few years, they have tasted defeats in their first few matches and then found the rhythm in the later games. This is what hurt them last year and they had to stretch during the back end of the tournament.
Mumbai Indians complete squad
Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Mayank Markande, Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Ben Cutting, Mitchell McClenaghan, Adam Milne, Rahul Chahar, Anukul Roy, Siddhesh Lad, Aditya Tare, Jason Behrendorff, Yuvraj Singh, Pankaj Jaiswal, Rasikh Salam, Barinder Sran, Anmolpreet Singh, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah

Delhi Capitals Strength and Weakness
DC is one side that has several young Indian talents in the side. Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, and even the captain Shreyas Iyer are the next gen superstars of Indian cricket. With Shikhar Dhawan in the Delhi team, it adds experience to the youth.
Where DC might struggle is the absence of quality Indian pacers. None of the current active Indian pacers of limited overs cricket is in the Delhi squad. Overdependency on overseas pacers can prove to be costly.
Delhi Capitals complete squad
Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Harshal Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Prithvi Shaw, Amit Mishra, Avesh Khan, Jayant Yadav, Colin Munro, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Lamichhane, Trent Boult, Manjot Kalra, Shikhar Dhawan, Jalaj Saxena, Bandaru Ayyappa, Ankush Bains, Nathu Singh, Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford, Hanuma Vihari, Ishant Sharma, Axar Patel, Colin Ingram
