Delhi Capitals is having a great season as they have won three consecutive matches, against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Delhi Capitals are sitting at number two on the points table with 10 points to their name, having won five out of the eight matches they have played so far.

As far as Mumbai Indians is concerned, they also have 10 points to their name from eight matches, but they are behind Delhi Capitals, sitting at number three because of their net run rate.
