DC vs MI Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 16 | DC vs MI Dream11 Prediction Today | Delhi Pitch Report

Match 16 of an extraordinary tournament represents go time for Delhi Capitals (DC) and Mumbai Indians (MI). They are the two teams without a win so far in IPL 2023, and desperately need to get on the board to avoid falling too far behind the pack with all of the other eight teams showing promising signs at one point or another.

The absence of Rishabh Pant for DC and Jasprit Bumrah for MI have hurt the respective teams. However, there are holes both sides have failed to close. David Warner, who recently became the fastest to 6,000 IPL runs, feels he needs to bat deep rather than effectively with others not contributing around him. MI, on the other hand, have barely fired a shot with their bowling attack picking up just five wickets across two matches to date.

Capitals coach Ricky Ponting called for “soul searching”. Rohit Sharma said “the senior guys need to step up, starting with me.” So, what will give in this clash?

  • Location: Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.
