Captains View 

Rohit Sharma | Mumbai Indians

We are gonna bat first. We have made one change because of the conditions. We have got one spinner instead of a spinner. Adam Milne misses out, we have got Jayant Yadav. Dew plays a factor for sure towards the back end.

The conditions look very similar to what it has been over the last few games that have been played here. This one looks a little drier compared to the last few games. We just got to do or basics right.

On a pitch like that, it’s important that you focus on the basics rather than focusing out of the box and trying to do all sorts of things. It’s important to focus on little things and that can add up to big things.

Rishabh Pant | Delhi Capitals 

We talked about that, that we are not gonna think too much about the toss. Yes we would have liked to bat first obviously but at the end of the day, the team which plays good cricket will win the match.

We have made two changes. Meriwala and Woakes are not playing. Hetmyer and Amit Mishra come in.

Man of the Match

  • Name: Amit Mishra
  • Team: Delhi Capitals
  • Role: Bowler
  • Stats: 4 overs – 24 runs – 4 wickets

Just tried to bowl good areas, just try to take wickets. Different bowlers have different style. My style is to bowl in the air. Don’t want to change much. Sometimes the speed maybe. I try to understand the wicket and bowl like that.

They are winners for MI and so I always go for wickets against these guys initially. I was worried but I knew our batters are smart enough. They have some experience now after playing two matches here.
