Preview & Prediction: Finals (MI vs DC)

One of the most competitive IPL editions come to an end today with either of the blue jerseys emerging victorious. DC needs to punch far above their weights to negate the MI's brute form this year where they lost all the 3 games to the defending champions. DC's masterstroke of opening with Stoinis might no go well today as he averages just 8.5 vs express pace this season which wasn't a problem vs SRH. 

MI will start favorites and DC's only chance depends on the return of Rishabh Pant of 2018-2019.


Dubai: Relatively easier batting conditions and pacers have a much better SR than spinners.

Probable XI
DC: Shaw, Dhawan, Iyer, Pant, Stoinis, Hetmyer, Axar, Ashwin, Nortje, Rabada, Pravin 

MI: Rohit, Quinton, Surya, Kishan, Hardik, Pollard, Krunal, Boult, Nile, Chahar, Bumrah


Head to Head
Head to Head MI leads 15-12

MI have won all the 3 games this year.
