If DC bats first (predicted score 160-190)
The capitals are filled with young and emerging bat holders who are fearless in terms of striking the ball away from the ground. The top 4 batsmen of Dc consisting Dhawan, Iyer, Shaw, and Rishabh Pant are the core of the team’s run-getters. Rishabh Pant will be the X-factor in the team as he can go against any team’s strike bowler.
If Mi bats first (predicted score 180-200)
