NOTE: All stats here are updated until 18 April 2021

Delhi Capitals (DC) take on Mumbai Indians (MI) in Match 13 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Chepauk Stadium, Chennai. Both the finalists from last year have won two out of three games so far. Mumbai won some narrow encounters while Delhi toppled Chennai and Punjab with ease.

Suggested Teams

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. Based on algorithms, we have come up with one team.

Ground Details

The Wankhede Stadium has witnessed six matches in IPL 2021 so far. The team batting first has won five out of those six games. However, it is advantage Mumbai to start with as they have already played three games here while Delhi will get the taste of Chepauk for the first time this year.

In IPL 2021, a wicket has fallen at the Chepauk Stadium every 21.6 runs and 16.2 deliveries, and at an economy rate of 8.0.

When we consider T20 cricket since 2019 at the six venues that are hosting matches during this tournament, from a bowling perspective, Chennai has been a haven for the bowlers. The bowlers have picked up a wicket every 22.9 runs, 18.3 deliveries apart and have conceded at 7.5 an over. 

Team Combination

In the six matches at the Chepauk this season so far, the pacers have had a slight edge, picking 62.2% of the wickets. Hence, it could be a good idea to stock your team with pacers, with maybe one or two of the wicket-taking spinners.

There could be a few interesting match-ups too

Rishabh Pant has been in good form since the start of this year. In the game against Rajasthan, he helped his side post a par-score with a gritty half-century. However, like many other batsmen, he doesn’t enjoy facing Jasprit Bumrah. In the last five years, Pant has scored 34 runs in 33 balls against Bumrah. What’s more important: Bumrah has dismissed him five times in this period.

Quinton de Kock knows every trick in Kagiso Rabada’s bag. The MI wicket-keeper has thrashed 80 runs in 56 balls against his countryman in the last five years, without getting dismissed.

Captain Suggestion

It is tough to look past Shikhar Dhawan at the moment. The orange cap holder is in sublime form averaging 62 with a strike rate of 163.2. Moreover, he has a good record against both Trent Boult and Bumrah with just one dismissal against them in the last five years.

X-Factors

Rahul Chahar has been the destroyer-in-chief for Mumbai in their last two games. He did not play Delhi in the final last year but will be a certainty in the XI this time given his rhythm. After a wicket-less first game, he has picked seven wickets in the last two games and is currently behind Harshal Patel in the race for the purple cap.

Ravichandran Ashwin will be relishing the opportunity to play at his home ground in the next two games. Given his affinity to left-handers and MI have three in their top-7, Ashwin is sure to get his full quota of overs and will surely have a trick or two up his sleeves to counter MI’s mighty batting line-up.

Anrich Nortje is out of quarantine and is back to join Delhi’s squad. It would be a surprise if Delhi do not find a way to fit him into their squad after some indifferent bowling from other pacers in the last two games. Nortje was Delhi’s biggest match-winner last year as per criclytics and has the pace to bounce out MI’s fearless lower-middle order.
