Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Match Preview- IPL 2022, Match 02, DC vs MI

Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Match Preview- IPL 2022, Match 02, DC vs MI† Delhi Capitals (DC) will kick off their IPL 2022 campaign by playing against Mumbai Indians (MI) at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium on March 27 in the first of the two matches. DC and Mumbai are placed in Group A.

The Rohit Sharma LED looks solid with a nice blend of youth and experience. The strikes impress with Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav (not available for the Delhi match) leading the charge.

They also have an exciting young talent in Proteas youngster Dewald Brevis. The bowling also has a lot of experience with pacer Jasprit Bumrah who is in charge.

He will have Tymal Mills (death-overs specialist), Jaydev Unadkat (hit with the new ball) and all-rounder Daniel Sams in support. The only minor concern for MI is the spin department. With Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya gone, Murugan Ashwin will take charge. He does not have much IPL experience.

Delhi Capitals have a fairly young squad with the majority of players under the age of 30. Their batting looks solid with skipper Rishabh Pant, opener David Warner and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh in it. The only minor problem is that they don’t have a solid experienced Indian bowler apart from Shardul Thakur. It remains to be seen how the pacesetters Khaleel Ahmed and Chetan Sakariya perform.

David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi and Mustafizur Rahman are not available at the start for Delhi Capitals. Delhi Capitals has a decent first XI, but player availability can cause headaches. David Warner is unavailable for the first two games and Mitchell Marsh is unavailable for the first three games. Lungi Ngidi and Mustafizur Rahman are part of the ongoing ODI series and will also miss the first match.

Anrich Nortje, the South African pacesetter whose Indian Premier League availability has been much discussed this season, will be ready to play for the Delhi Capitals team from early April. A franchise official has said that Anrich Nortje will participate in the IPL 15 from the team’s third game, more specifically from April 7, when the Delhi Capitals face Lucknow Super Giants at DY Patil Stadium. Anrich Nortje has already been reached Mumbai and has been in quarantine for the past few days.
