DC vs MIE Live Score: Dubai Capitals will take on MI Emirates in their next fixture of ILT20 2024. Both the teams had last met in the eliminator last season, where MI Emirates defeated Capitals to progress through to Qualifier 2. Delhi Capitals won both the league stage fixtures but faltered in the eliminator clash. They would aim to take revenge for their loss from MI Emirates in their opening clash. Several newbies will make their debuts on both teams. Several capped players such as the likes of David Warner, Kieron Pollard, Sam Billings, Jason Holder, and Rovman Powell will be on the park representing their respective franchises, and it should be a cracking game of cricket.
