Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (captain), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Dubey, Anrich Nortje

Shreyas Iyer (Delhi Capitals):
We wanted to bat first as well. Previous results tell it’s better to bat first. Batting hasn’t been up to the mark, hopefully, it will do well today. Three changes for us – Praveen Dubey makes his IPL debut. Prithvi Shaw and Harshal Patel are back. We are motivated to do well as a team, want to finish on a good note
Kieron Pollard (Mumbai Indians)
We will field first. Not sure what this pitch will do, it’s better to chase down the target. Two changes for us – Hardik is resting today and Pattinson misses out. They have been replaced by Jayant Yadav and Nathan Coulter-Nile. We have been playing well with everyone chipping in, hopefully, it will continue. We need to go hard till the end, not want to get complacent.
#MumbaiIndians win the toss and they will bowl first against #DelhiCapitals.#Dream11IPL https://t.co/xLpuPedUUa
