Delhi Capitals have won 7 out of 13 matches and have a net run rate of +0.255. This match will be very important for Delhi to reach the playoffs. It is expected that MI can give Arjun Tendulkar a chance in the playing 11 after being placed on the bench for the second consecutive season.
The track is slowing in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The reason behind it would be the whole IPL is playing only in 4 venues. Now there is some assistance for spin too since the initial innings period. Most of the strips are of Red soil, which gives good bounce and pace to bat on.
Mumbai is located in the western state of Maharashtra. The weather in Mumbai remains hot and humid during the summers that spanning from March to May. The weather model indicates a good forecast for the game of cricket on the 21st of May 2022.

Chances of Rain – 1%
MI leads the 31-game tally 16-15. DC had always given a tough fight to Mumbai Indians.
This season has been mixed for Delhi Capitals. Captain Rishabh Pant has failed to live up to the expectations. A lot of questions have been raised about his captaincy methods. Pant has also been a super flop in batting. In the last match against Mumbai, the team will expect better performance from their captain.
David Warner’s bat has been speaking continuously this season. Kuldeep Yadav is the highest wicket-taker for Delhi. In the last few matches, he has not been able to perform as per the expectations. Can take any wicket in a must-win match for Delhi.
With each match that I watch, my love for the game just increases. All I dream of is to join my passion for writing with that of the game and pen down the live-action.
As a person, I am a quick learner and work well in a team for that is what wins the series.
