In the first game of the first doubleheader of the Indian T20 League 2022 season, Mumbai and Delhi will take on each other at the Brabourne Stadium. As this is going to be a day game, the pitch is expected to be on the drier side giving spinners an edge over the pacers. However, batters will still enjoy batting here. Also, Mumbai have had an edge over Delhi in the previous few meetings but since it’s a fresh season, everything will restart. Both teams will miss a few key players in the first game.
With the pitch aiding the spinners and also the batters with shorter dimensions, having more batters and spinners in the fantasy teams will be a good choice. A few names that must be in one’s team include Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, Prithvi Shaw, and Shardul Thakur. Rovman Powell and Chetan Sakariya can be two valuable picks from the Delhi camp. Meanwhile, Tim David can do the same for Mumbai.
Mumbai: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Verma, Anmolpreet Singh, Kieron Pollard, Tim David, Fabian Allen, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Basil Thampi, Tymal Mills
