It is expected to be a big battle in the Indian Premier League 2022 as the Delhi Capitals take on the Mumbai Indians in the 2nd game of the season. Both sides would be under pressure to start their campaign in this game. They have enjoyed a good rivalry in the last two seasons, and this would make it one of the games to watch out.
Delhi Capitals would miss the services of David Warner and Anrich Nortje, two of their key players and this is a big loss for them. Their middle order looks slightly inexperienced on this big stage, and they must overcome this. Mumbai Indians is a very strong team in the batting department, and it remains to be seen how they deliver here after last year’s average show.
They have been knocking on the doors of the title for the last three years finishing third on the points table last season. Rishabh Pant has been leading the side from the front and he would look to set the ball rolling with a strong performance in this game. Mumbai Indians is a tough side to beat, and Pant would have to lead from the front and inspire confidence in his side.
David Warner would miss this game and the side would look for a good start from Prithvi Shaw and Tim Seifert. Shaw had a great season last year and shall look to repeat the magic. Rishabh Pant, Mandeep Singh, and Rovman Powell add firepower to the middle order, and they would look to add quick runs. Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel would like to excel in the final overs of the game.
Shardul Thakur and Khaleel Ahmed will need to make good use of the new ball as Mumbai is a top-heavy side. The side would have big expectations from the spin twin of Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav who would look to keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs. The conditions are likely to help them in this game. Chetan Sakariya would be expected to do well in the role of a 5th bowler in this game.
Top Batsman – Prithvi Shaw
Top Bowler – Shardul Thakur
Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Prithvi Shaw, Tim Seifert, Mandeep Singh, Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Chetan Sakariya, Khaleel Ahmed
Khaleel Ahmed, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kuldeep Yadav, SN Thakur, Tim Seifert, Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Mandeep Singh, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel
Rohit Sharma would like to put behind the poor show in the last season. They finished 5th on the points table after getting off to a poor start. Their batting didn’t deliver the goods in most games and the side would look to come out all guns blazing. They had lost both their games against Delhi Capitals last year and Sharma would look to set the record straight winning this game.
Sharma and Ishan Kishan are two of the best openers in the world and the side would expect an electrifying start from them in this game. In the middle order, they would miss Suryakumar Yadav who is out with an injury, and the trio of Tilak Varma, Ramandeep Singh, and Tim David would have to play good hands. Kieron Pollard and Daniel Sams are clean hitters of the ball, and the side would like to see them take on the Delhi bowlers.
Tymal Mills and Jasprit Bumrah form a good new-ball pair and they must deliver in the early overs against the strong batting line-up that Delhi Capitals have. Jaydev Unadkat must play an important role in the middle overs with Mayank Markande who has done well in the past. Sams and Pollard add balance to this attack and a good show would be expected from them.
Top Batsman – Rohit Sharma
Top Bowler – Jasprit Bumrah
Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Ramandeep Singh, Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Daniel Sams, Jaydev Unadkat, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills, Mayank Markande

It will be a hot and humid afternoon in Mumbai on March 27. The wicket might have something for the bowlers in the early overs, but we expect to see a batting surface. Batsmen would be able to play on the rise and score runs easily. The side batting first in the game would need 180 runs on the board to feel confident.
Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai has one of the best batting surfaces in India. The wicket is flat, and the ball comes onto the bat nicely. Fast bowlers have struggled here as there isn’t much assistance for them from the surface. Spinners do well as the ball can occasionally stop and surprise the batsmen.
It is a small ground and we have seen big run chases in the past. The wicket eases as the game progresses and bowling in the 2nd innings is a big challenge for any side. Hence, the side winning the toss here should have very little hesitation in opting to bowl first.
Delhi Capitals would miss out on the services of two of their most important players Warner and Nortje. This is likely to affect the side’s balance, especially with the new ball. They can’t afford to provide the long rope as the Mumbai Indians have a very strong batting line-up. Mumbai has a well-balanced side with depth in its bowling attack and this would make them favorites to win the game.
