TEAM NEWS, SQUADS, PREDICTED XIs

DD SQUAD: Mohammed Shami, Karun Nair, Sam Billings, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Zaheer Khan, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Rishabh Pant, CV Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Ben Hilfenhaus, Marlon Samuels.

The move to push Rishabh Pant up the order to bat at number three has worked well for Delhi and they should stick with that strategy for this game.

If Chris Morris and Zaheer Khan are fit, they are likely to come back into the playing XI.

PREDICTED DD XI: Samson, Nair, Pant (wk), Iyer, Anderson, Morris, Rabada, Cummins, Mishra, Shami, Zaheer.

MI SQUAD: Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, Hardik Pandya, Parthiv Patel, Harbhajan Singh, Ambati Rayudu, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Gopal, Lendl Simmons, R Vinay Kumar, Mitchell McClenaghan, J Suchith, Siddhesh Lad, Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana, Tim Southee, Jitesh Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Punia, Nicholas Pooran, Mitchell Johnson, K Gowtham, Karn Sharma, Saurabh Tiwary, Asela Gunaratne, Kulwant Khejroliya.

Harbhajan Singh missed the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore due to injury. If the off-spinner is fit in time for this match, he will most probably replace Karn Sharma in the team.

Mumbai have made very few changes this season and that has been one of the main reasons for their success so far.

PREDICTED MI XI: Patel (wk), Buttler, Rana, Rohit, Pollard, Krunal, Hardik, Harbhajan, McClenaghan, Bumrah, Malinga.
