It will be the battle between Mumbai and Delhi in match number 69 of IPL 2022. While Mumbai had become the first team to be eliminated out of the race to the Playoffs, if Delhi win this fixture and reach 16 points, they would have enough to reach the final four. Having said that, the pressure would be on Delhi with a place in the business end of the tournament at stake while Mumbai can just go about expressing themselves, playing a fearless brand of cricket.

Ahead of the penultimate league stage encounter in the 15th season of the cash-rich league set to be played at the Wankhede Stadium, here is what numbers suggest could happen in the fixture.

1. Toss Prediction

Mumbai have won 8 out of the 13 tosses so far in IPL 2022. Delhi too have won 8 tosses. However, in their last five games respectively, Delhi have won 2 tosses while Mumbai have won 4. So predicting Mumbai to win this toss.

2. Win Possibility

In the overall head-to-head record tally, the two teams have had a very exciting rivalry. The sides have met each other on 31 previous occasions and while the five-time champions have won 16 of these fixtures, Delhi have tasted a win in the other 15 matches. However, this year while Delhi have 7 wins and 6 defeats in 13 matches and are in the race to be in the Playoffs, Mumbai have had a forgettable season and have only managed 3 wins with losses in the other 10 matches. Even in the two teams’ encounter earlier in the season, it was Delhi who had emerged victorious. So based on all these factors, predicting a Delhi win for this match.

3. Team of the Day

The Team of the Day is Delhi who have been far more consistent than Mumbai this season. They should be able to squeeze 2 points out of this game and could be a force to reckon with in the Playoffs.

4. Powerplay Score

The average powerplay score at the Wankhede Stadium in IPL 2022 has been around 42. Both teams though have a great top-order although the Mumbai opening duo haven’t performed as per expectation. Having said that, predicting Mumbai to put up a good show in the last league game this season and their batters should be able to cross the 42-run mark in the first six overs. The same is the case with Delhi who too should be able to score more than 42 during the fielding restriction.

5. Average first innings and second innings score

167.68 is the average first innings score at this venue in IPL 2022 so far. The average second innings score here this season has been 161.52.
