Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians have not won a game yet in IPL 2023. In Match 16, they face each other on April 11 at Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi.
Delhi Capitals have lost all three of their previous matches and are keen to bounce back. Mumbai Indians have also failed to win a single match this season, with both their batting and bowling not looking impressive. Senior players such as Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav are not in form, which is a matter of concern for their team.
On the other hand, Delhi’s captain David Warner has been among the top run-scorers in the league, but his strike rate is a concern. Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw’s form has also been a worry for the team. Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel are currently in good form and are expected to play a key role against Mumbai.

Probable Playing XIs
Delhi Capitals (DC): David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Phil Salt (wk), Manish Pandey, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar
Mumbai Indians (MI): Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Jofra Archer, Arshad Khan, Hrithik Shokeen, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendorff
Probable Best Performers
Probable best batter: David Warner: The left-handed batsman has been performing well and is one of the top run-scorers in the league. However, he needs to focus on his strike rate to help his team win. He has scored 158 runs from three matches so far.
Probable best bowler: Khaleel Ahmed: The left-arm quick bowler can pose a challenge to Mumbai Indians’ top order with his pace. Khaleel has picked up three wickets in three matches, but there is room for improvement. Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav have struggled against left-arm pacers, and Khaleel could take advantage of that.
