Mumbai needs a change of fortune after starting the season with three straight losses. Delhi are only marginally better, as they won just once of their four matches this campaign. Playing at home has helped them last season, and the turnaround could happen here in Mumbai. I am backing Mumbai to win this match.

  • Mumbai Indians have won 5 of their last 7 home matches against Delhi (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have won 4 of their last 5 matches at this venue (IPL)
  • Delhi Capital have lost 3 of their last 4 matches (IPL)
  • Jasprit Bumrah has dismissed Rishabh Pant 6 times in 13 innings (IPL)

Head to Head


There have been 33 matches between the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals, with 18 wins for Mumbai and 15 victories for Delhi.

Last season saw the sides meet in Delhi at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, when Mumbai won a thriller by six wickets off the last ball. In fact, it was Mumbai’s first win of that campaign!

Mumbai Indians Form


The Mumbai Indians are at the at the bottom of the points tally with zero points from three matches. They have lost to the Gujarat Titans, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and the Rajasthan Royals so far.

Batting hasn’t clicked for the Mumbai Indians, with only Tilak Varma aggregating more than 100 runs this season. The team expects to see the likes of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan get among the runs.

Bowling hasn’t been their forte either, with only Jasprit Bumrah, with an economy of 6.33, leading the show for Mumbai. Every other regular bowler has been conceding more than ten runs per over.

Mumbai Indians Team News


The good news for Mumbai is that star batter Suryakumar Yadav is fit and batting in the nets. He could be playing in this match.

Delhi Capitals Form


The Delhi Capitals have two points from four matches and are only just above the Mumbai team on the tally. Their only win has come against the Chennai Super Kings in Visakhapatnam. They are coming off a massive 106-run drubbing at the hands of the Kolkata Knight Riders.

The visitors are led by the resurgence of Rishabh Pant, who’s leading their batting charts with 152 runs. David Warner has impressed too (148 runs), but the lack of cohesion is a worry.

Bowling has been led by Khaleel Ahmed (six wickets, ER 8.18), who has found his mojo after a few poor seasons.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Mukesh Kumar sat out the last match due to an injury and could come back into the side if he is fully fit.
