7.58pm
Rahane falls for 15

Krunal Pandya introduced into the attack. Dhawan shows intent with a sweep hit but it is straight to the fielder for one run. Rahane is a good player off the backfoot but the flatter length from Krunal made it difficult for him. Skipper Shreyas Iyer is the new man in.

7.56pm
Milestone for Dhawan

7.54pm

Rahane was looking so good but now walks back to the dugout. Goes on the backfoot and tries to play on the leg-side but gets trapped in front of the stumps. He knows that’s out so doesn’t take the review. Krunal does the trick. FOW-24/2

IPL 2020 MI vs DC Live Updates: Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals latest updates: 

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of match 27 of the Indian Premier League between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals. DC are the table-toppers with 10 points from six games while MI are just below DC with eight points from six games. The two have been the most dominant teams so far this season, and this is what makes this encounter one to watch out for. Stay tuned as we will bring you all the live updates from the clash.

MI would be looking to retain their position at the top of the table when they take on DC in Abu Dhabi. Mumbai are at the second position in the table with eight points from six matches while DC are top with 10 points.

Both teams will go into the match high on confidence having won their last three matches respectively. MI beat RR convincingly in their last match while DC beat the same opponents easily in their last game. Just like last year, MI have played as a unit with different individuals stepping up at different times. DC too haven’t depended on individuals and played as a unit.

The biggest threat to DC will be MI’s power-hitters. Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard have been in good form and hitting them big. Their top order has also looked good, it will be a challenge for the DC bowlers to stop this rampaging MI batting line-up.

It will be a battle of power vs smarts. MI have power in their batting line-up while the DC bowlers have bowled intelligently through the tournament. Rabada and Nortje have shown the flair and aggression while Ashwin, Axar and Harshal have displayed their wits with change in lengths, pace and variations.

There is a lot of flamboyance in the DC batting line-up as well and with Shimron Hetmyer hitting form in the last match against RR, their batting line-up looks formidable.

MI’s pacers have impressed and Rahul Chahar has played the Batman and Robin roles time and again. It will be fascinating to watch the battle of DC batsmen vs the likes of Bumrah, Pattinson and Boult. MI need more from their fifth and sixth bowling options and this is where Krunal Pandya, who has been inconsistent, and Kieron Pollard will need to step up.

There is very little to separate the two sides. And we can expect a cracker in Abu Dhabi.
