DC vs MI, IPL 2020 Live Score: Will Rohit Sharma play vs Shreyas's Delhi Capitals in Dubai  

The question on everyone's mind: will Rohit Sharma play tonight vs Delhi? Is Rohit Sharma fit? If he is, is he available for selection? Will he be available for the knockouts? Mumbai became the first team to qualify for the last four after Chennai Super Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders earlier this week. That said, Mumbai would prefer having its talismanic skipper back in action as soon as possible.

A top-two finish will be on Mumbai Indians's mind. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals has lost three in a row and would want to snap its losing streak and book a playoff berth. However, if it loses, then its last game against RCB becomes a must-win.
