Chennai, April 20: Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bat first against Delhi Capitals in Match 13 of IPL 2021 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday (April 20).
As for team news, Mumbai Indians made one change to their side from the last game based on the conditions as they bring in Indian off spinner Jayant Yadav for New Zealand pacer Adam Milne.
Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant's DC made two changes to their 11 that played in the victory over Punjab Kings with leg spinner Amit Mishra and West Indies batsman Shimron Hetmter replacing England all rounder Chris Woakes and Baroda left arm pacer Lukman Meriwala.
At the time of the toss, Rohit said: "We are gonna bat first. We have made one change. Adam Milne misses out, we have brought in Jayant Yadav. Dew plays a factor in the back end. The conditions look similar, this looks drier. We want to do our basics right."
