Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals Prediction and Pick
Mumbai Indians have the upper hand in terms of head-to-head records, but only by the narrowest of margins. They have won 16 of the 31 outings against Delhi, with the Capitals winning the other 15 matches.
However, given the massive gulf in current form of the two sides, we have predicted Rishabh Pant’s team to win this particular fixture.

Delhi Capitals Are One Step Away From a Playoffs Spot as Mumbai Indians Look to Play Party Spoilers
Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals will cross swords in the 69th match of the 2022 Indian Premier League Season at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Saturday, 21st May.
Mumbai Indians, who happen to be the most decorated team in this competition, have had their worst ever campaign in IPL. They have won only three of their 13 matches, which sees them at the very bottom of the standings. There will not be anything significant at stake for Mumbai in this fixture, but a day before their match, another bottom-dweller in Chennai Super Kings will be playing their last league fixture against Rajasthan Royals.
If Chennai fails to win this match, Mumbai will have a chance to at least avoid the humiliating last position, though it has to be admitted that the ninth place will not do their reputation a world of good either.
While there will not be anything at stake for their opponents, when it comes to Delhi Capitals’ case, the stakes have never been higher than this. They are placed outside the top four with 14 points, but a win here will help them leapfrog Royal Challengers Bangalore in the standings and proceed to the next stage, given that their net run rate is higher than Faf du Plessis’ boys.
Though he has played only a couple of matches, IPL is often about providing an instantaneous impact, which Tristan Stubbs has failed miserably at. The South African batter has scored only 2 runs in as many matches and he is likely to be replaced by another youngster from his nation, Dewald Brevis.
Besides that, Fabian Allen could get a place in the team at Sanjay Yadav’s expense, whereas to maintain overseas count, Rohit Sharma could then replace Riley Meredith with Arjun Tendulkar, whose debut is being anticipated by every Mumbai Indians fan.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals are expected to make only one change to their playing XI. Having regained his fitness, Khaleel Ahmed was included in the team in the last match against Punjab Kings, but that decision backfired as the left-arm pacer conceded 43 runs in his four overs without picking up wickets. Hence, Ahmed is likely to be replaced by Chetan Sakariya.
Besides that, the Delhi team management and fans will love nothing more than to see Prithvi Shaw back in action, but the young batting prodigy has not made a full recovery from typhoid and this game could come a tad too soon for him.
Tim David: Mumbai Indians’ decision of not giving Tim David adequate chances looks rather incomprehensive now, given that the Singapore-born cricketer is finally starting to justify his price tag. He has scored 152 runs in seven matches at an average of 38, and while that might not look particularly extraordinary, it is his strike rate of 202.66 which makes him a lethal weapon to possess in the armoury.
David Warner: Speaking of lethal assets, Delhi Capitals have a dynamite of a batter in their ranks – David Warner. The left-handed Aussie opener is currently the leading run-scorer for his team, having scored 427 runs in 11 matches at an average of 53.37 and a strike rate of 151.95.
