Mumbai: The Mumbai Indians and the Delhi Capitals will face off in the second league match of the 15th season of the IPL-2022 on Sunday. Both teams have come up with a strategy to start the season with a win. Mumbai and Delhi have formed a balanced team in the last mega player auction. The match will start at 3.30 pm at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
Five-time champions Mumbai Indians performed disappointingly in the 2021 edition. The team finished the campaign in seventh place with 17 points from 14 matches with 9 wins, 4 losses. Forgetting the performance of the previous version, Rohit Bahini is ready to take to the field in a new form. In the 2021 IPL8, Mumbai lost two matches to Delhi in eight matches. Today the team is aiming for revenge. It is difficult to predict the final eleven as the team is playing its first match. Ishan Kisan will start the shift with Rohit Sharma. Tilak Burma will bat in the No. 3 spot to replace Suryakumar Yadav, who did not join the team due to injury problems.
Dewald Brevis, South Africa, who has been in the spotlight for the Under-19 World Cup, is likely to make his debut. He is considered a junior de Villiers. Singapore’s strongest batsman David David could make it to the final eleven. Murugan Ashwin will be in charge of the spin department.
The Delhi Capitals, led by Rishabh Pant, exited the play-offs in the last edition. A number of new faces have been added to the team for the new season. Under-19 World Cup champions India will start their innings with captain Yash Dhul Prithvi Shaw. He is preparing for the IPL. Australian star batsmen David Warner and Mitchell Marsh are members of the Capitals this year. But neither team has joined the national team’s schedule. Lungi Enggidi and Mustafizur are in quarantine. “It simply came to our notice then. In the match, all eyes will be on West Indies’ Rowman Powell and New Zealand’s Tim Siffert.
