Match Preview for DEL vs MUM Dream11 contest:
The 1st game in Elite Group D, round 1 of the 2021 Vijay Hazare Trophy will see Delhi (DEL) take on Mumbai (MUM) at the Jaipuria Vidyalaya Ground, Jaipur on February 21th at 9:00 AM IST.
Both DEL and MUM had a 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy to forget as they failed to qualify for the knockout stages held in Ahmedabad. DEL won three games while MUM managed to win just a solitary one. Thus, both teams will be determined to finish the 2020-21 season strongly with the Vijay Hazare Trophy to their name.

There has been a historic rivalry between these two heavyweights. But of the last five games they played against each other in this format, MUM have won four. Thus, they will surely have a psychological advantage going into this fixture.
DEL Probable Playing XI:
Shikhar Dhawan, Hiten Dalal, Dhruv Shorey, Nitish Rana, Anuj Rawat (wk), Himmat Singh, Lalit Yadav, Shivam Sharma, Kulwant Khejroliya, Pradeep Sangwan (c), Simarjeet Singh

Prithvi Shaw, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer (c), Sarfaraz Khan, Aditya Tare (wk), Shivam Dube, Shams Mulani, Tushar Deshpande, Dhawal Kulkarni, Akash Parkar
DEL vs MUM Dream11 Team for Head to Head League:
Aditya Tare, Nitish Rana, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Shams Mulani, Shivam Dube, Akash Parkar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Kulwant Khejroliya, Pradeep Sangwan.
Captain: Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav was brilliant last season, scoring 228 runs at an incredible average of 113.00. With Team India’s limited-overs squad against England to be announced soon, he will be keen to make a match-winning performance and is a prime choice for captaining the Dream11 team.
Vice-captain: Shikhar Dhawan
Dhawan didn’t have the greatest of seasons last year, scoring just 130 runs in 7 games. But he is the biggest match-winner in this Delhi team and a perfect choice for vice-captaining the Dream11 team.
DEL vs MUM Dream11 Team for Small League:
Aditya Tare, Nitish Rana, Shikhar Dhawan, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Suryakumar Yadav, Shams Mulani, Shivam Dube, Akash Parkar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Kulwant Khejroliya, Pradeep Sangwan.
Captain: Yashasvi Jaiswal
Yashasvi Jaiswal had an unbelievable season last year for Mumbai as he amassed an incredible 564 runs from just 6 games at a mind-boggling average of 112.80. If he get’s going, he certainly knows the art of converting his starts into big hundreds and is a great choice as the captain of the Dream11 team.
Vice-captain: Nitish Rana
Nitish Rana had a decent season last time scoring 311 runs from 8 games at a fine average of 51.83. He will look to be even more consistent this time and help his team beat MUM.
DEL vs MUM Dream11 Team for Mega League:
Aditya Tare, Nitish Rana, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Shams Mulani, Shivam Dube, Akash Parkar, Tushar Deshpande, Kulwant Khejroliya, Pradeep Sangwan.
Captain: Shreyas Iyer
Shreyas Iyer has been handed the MUM captaincy this time around. He had a decent season last time too, but will be looking to lead from the front and make MUM a dominant force again.
Vice-captain: Shivam Dube
Shivam Dube has received a lot of scrutiny of late and was termed as too inconsistent. But this is his time for redemption as his all-round abilities could spring a surprise. Thus, he is a good gamble to take as the vice-captain of the Dream11 team.
