Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Prediction: Who Will The Match Between DC vs MI? IPL 2022, Match 02- DC vs MI

Mumbai Indians, unlike Delhi Capitals, do not have any availability issues especially as all of their overseas players will be there in India ahead of their opening game in IPL 2022 against Delhi Capitals scheduled on 27 March at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

The duo of skipper Rohit Sharma and keeper Ishan Kishan will open the batting this season. The biggest setback for MI is that Suryakumar Yadav is ruled out for their tournament opener as he is currently at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) recovering from a thumb injury.

The duo of Sanjay Yadav and Mayank Markande is likely to start in the MI playing 11 as the first-choice spinners. Jasprit Bumrah will lead the pace bowling attack alongside the likes of Tymal Mills, Daniel Sams and Jaydev Unadkat

Rohit Sharma (captain), Ishan Kishan (WK), Tilak Verma, Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Daniel Sams, Sanjay Yadav, Mayank Markande, Jaydev Unadkat, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills

With five out of their seven overseas players not available and the Indian replacements decidedly second-rung, Delhi Capitals could struggle in their first IPL match against IPL’s most successful franchise Mumbai Indians. Mumbai Indians are hence the slight favourites to win this match.

The batting and bowling lineup may not look as strong without Suryakumar Yadav , Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya as the MI we are used to seeing but it has fantastic potential.

The pace lineup is a bit stronger with the inclusion of Tymal Mills and Jaydev Unadkat unlike the inexperienced spinners available.
