After an intriguing weekend of intense T20 action where we witnessed a rip-roaring contest between the sides. The 13th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is set to take place between the Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, this Tuesday.
Delhi Capitals after suffering a narrow defeat against the Rajasthan Royals managed to bounce back strongly against the Punjab Kings. The Capitals now find themselves placed in second place, just below the Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are yet to taste defeat this season. Mumbai Indians are not far away as they stand third on the ladder and a win here could see them overtake the Delhi side.
Both the teams look in great touch and they seem very well balanced with respect to the playing combination. Can Mumbai Indians make it three in a row? Or will Dhawan once again prove to be the vital force?

The conditions are very much in favor of cricket as clear skies are expected throughout the course of the day. The temperatures are expected to be hovering in the 32-29 degree Celsius and the humidity at the peak is likely to touch the 67 percent mark.
It has been all about the slow bowlers at the Chennai pitch and we expect the same trend to continue for this encounter. In the last 6 matches played at Chennai, the teams batting second have failed to chase down the score on 5 occasions and for that reason, it would be a no-brainer to win the toss and bat first. Anything above the 150 mark is likely to put the chasing team in a spot of bother. Expect a low-scoring thriller once again.
Delhi Capitals displayed a great match-up against the Punjab Kings and had no issues whatsoever chasing down the target of 195. The inclusion of Steve Smith into the did not pay off but they are likely to continue with the same combination for the upcoming encounter.
Mumbai Indians after starting their campaign with a defeat like every season once again managed to bounce back in style. Adam Milne did not have a great outing in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He is likely to be replaced by the South African youngster Marco Jansen or the Aussie veteran- Nathan Coulter-Nile.
Probable Playing Xl
Delhi Capitals (DC): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Steven Smith, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Marcus Stoinis, Lalit Yadav, Chris Woakes, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Lukman Meriwala
Mumbai Indians (MI): Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Adam Milne/Marco Jansen, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult
The orange cap holder- Shikhar Dhawan has been in impeccable form and it would be a crime to keep him out of your fantasy lineup. Rohit Sharma and Prithvi Shaw too have shown signs of great form and it would be a wise decision to have them in your line-up. In the bowling department, we expect Avesh Khan to have a good outing.
