Dubai (UAE) | Jagran Sports Desk: With an eye to clinch their maiden title, Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals will lock horns with an in-form Mumbai Indians at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

The Mumbai Indians, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, have clinched the IPL four times -- 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 -- and would look to win their fifth title. The MI are also considered the favourites to lift the IPL trophy this year.

However, one can not rule out Delhi Capitals. The Shreyas Iyer's side had started the tournament on a brilliant note, winning six games of their first seven matches. Though they suffered a loss of form in the second-half, DC have regained their form just when it mattered the most and have managed to reach the finals of the tournament.

Pitch report:

The pitch at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium has slowed down a bit and the batsmen on Tuesday might find it difficult to score runs in the initial overs of the game. However, once the ball gets old and surface eases a bit, scoring runs will become quite easier for the batsmen.

Weather forecast:

The weathermen have predicted that the temperature will hover around 23 to 32 degrees Celsius. The humidity will stay around 58 per cent and the wind speed will likely be around 21 km per hour. The dew will likely be around in the second half of the game.
