Delhi and Mumbai will face each other in the 69th game of the tournament. These two teams will play each other for the second time in the 2022 season where Delhi took an incredible win. Similarly out of these two teams, Delhi is still in the playoff contention. However, entering this game, Mumbai is coming after a loss against Hyderabad by just 3 runs, whereas Delhi defeated Punjab by 17 runs.
Mumbai would like to end their disappointing season with a win in their last game. In a tournament with below-par results, several players from the team have displayed a lot of promise. Tilak Varma has been one of the best young batters in the tournament as he has scored 376 at an average of 37.6. But other batters like Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard have failed to find form throughout the season.
In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah has been Mumbai’s best bowler as he continues to take a lot of wickets while being very economical. Similarly, Riley Meridith has also put up some decent performances in the previous few games. But like their batting, other bowlers like Jaydev Unadkat, M Ashwin, Basil Thampi have leaked a lot of runs.
Whereas, Delhi has been an amazing team with great players in all departments. Their batters like David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, and Sarfaraz Khan have scored crucial runs at an incredible rate. These performances haven’t stopped despite the absence of Shaw who has been a talismanic opener for Delhi. In the bowling department, Kuldeep Yadav has been a revelation as he is fifth in the Purple Cap race with 20 wickets along with quality performances from Shardul Thakur and Khaleel Ahmed.
