Mumbai are in a spot of bother with their fast bowling line-up as a number of frontline pacers are not available for the match. Lasith Malinga, Jason Behrendorff and Adam Milne will not feature in the opening clash as Milne is out with injury and the other two are on their national duties.
Delhi Capitals have rebranded themselves in a bid to turn our better performances this time around. However, they will be without the South African all-rounder, Chris Morris who is playing against Sri Lanka in the T20I series.
These are the playing XI for the two teams:
- Rohit Sharma (c)
- Quinton de Kock (wk)
