The second last league stage match in IPL 2022 season has gotten intense, as it will have the playoff berth of Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore at stake. Mumbai Indians will take on Delhi Capitals in a highly-anticipated game on Saturday evening at the iconic Wankhede Stadium. While Delhi will be desperate to win the game to secure their playoff berth, Mumbai will look to end their disappointing campaign on a high note.
The match between both sides has already gotten much attention for a genuine reason. Bangalore, who has recently registered a comprehensive victory against Gujarat Giants, will be looking for Mumbai to do well. Delhi Capitals thrashed Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals in their last two fixtures and improved their net run rate (+0.255), as they now need to win the game against Mumbai to qualify for the playoff.
For Delhi, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh will play a crucial role, and Prithvi Shaw returning to the squad will be one major factor everyone will have eyes on. Rovman Powell is another middle-order batter who will have a lot of responsibilities on his shoulder. In the bowling department, spinners Kuldeep Yadav (20 wickets), Axar Patel (6 wickets) and Lalit Yadav (4 wickets, 8.33) will be a vital cog in the squad as they will look to restrict Mumbai Indians at a low score.
Delhi will hope for better performance from Shardul Thakur and Khaleel Ahmed, as both the bowlers conceded too many runs in the tournament. Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians are expected to make a lot of changes in the squad as Rohit Sharma has already given a hint about that. Arjun Tendulkar is one name which will surely grab a lot of limelight as Jr. Tendulkar has warmed the bench for 27 straight games across two seasons.
Mumbai and Bangalore will hope for a better show from the openers, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan. If they don’t try out a new opener in the game, Tilak Verma and Tim David will have to show their potential in their final match of the season. The upcoming fixture has a lot at stake, and it will be one of the most thrilling matches of the season. Let’s look at when and where to watch match number 69 in IPL 2022.
