Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Rishabh Pant won the toss and chose to bowl against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 match 46 at the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Pacer Avesh Khan sacked MI skipper Rohit Sharma for just seven runs, while Axar Patel got rid of Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav and Saurabh Tiwary to give DC big breakthroughs. Previously, MI made one change as they brought Jayant Yadav instead of Rahul Chahar while DC brought back Prithvi Shaw instead of Lalit Yadav. DC lost their last meeting against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by three wickets and will try to regain their winning touch. MI, on the other hand, has endured a tough second phase of IPL 2021 in the UAE, with Rohit often falling short with his selection dilemmas in crunch matches. DC is second in the IPL points table with eight wins in 11 games, while MI has fallen to sixth with six losses in 11 games so far. (Live Scorecard)
