- In the 32 IPL matches played between DC and MI, where MI has a lead over DC where they have won 17 matches and DC has won 15 matches.
- Delhi has lost each of its first three matches, and this is their second home game.
- Mumbai has also lost both of their previous games.
Delhi Capitals (DC), who have suffered three consecutive losses in the Indian Premier League 2023, will visit Mumbai Indians (MI) on April 11 at Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. Mumbai Indians, their opponent for the evening, are also winless this season, as neither their bowling nor their batting have shown much promise. As Rohit himself acknowledged, seniors must now stand up, the performance of captain Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav is also a major cause for concern.
David Warner, the captain of Delhi, is currently on a different platform. The southpaw’s strike rate is a huge issue, despite the fact that he is one of the leading run scorers and is competing for the IPL Orange Cap. Another issue that the team needs to address right away is Prithvi Shaw’s form. Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel, on the other hand, are in excellent form right now and will probably play a significant role against Mumbai.

It is a major surprise to find both teams near the bottom of the table at this early point of the 2023 IPL season given that both teams include some of the top T20 players in the history of this format. The team has plenty of time, though, to turn their season around and contend for the championship. Delhi Capitals might face a lot of difficulties if Anrich Nortje is in great form, but generally, we believe that Mumbai Indians’ potent batting lineup will win.
Therefore, Mumbai Indians are predicted to win this game given the combination.
