Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals go head to head in Match 20 of the 2024 Indian Premier League at the Wankhede Stadium. After three games in this campaign, Mumbai Indians are still looking for their first win whereas Delhi Capitals have won one of four. Read on as we preview this match. The day-night fixture gets underway in Mumbai at 15:30 local time on Sunday April 7th.

This was not the start that Mumbai Indians were looking for ahead of this year’s IPL and so far they have suffered defeats against Gujarat Titans, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals. However, with the potential return of Suryakumar Yadav to the side, this could be the boost they need.

Playing against the only team beneath them in the table, Delhi Capitals will fancy their chances of getting their second win of the tournament. Their bowlers need to be smarter in this game though after they showed little intelligence or variety against KKR in their last game.

This is not the easiest batting pitch with turn for the spinners and sideways movement for the quick bowlers. A par score is likely to be no higher than 150 with the pitch getting easier to bat on as the game progresses.

MI Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

It was confirmed on Friday that Suryakumar Yadav had linked up with the Mumbai Indians squad ahead of this game after missing the opening three matches due to his recovery from ankle surgery. It may be that he is subbed out of the side after batting to gradually bring him up to full fitness.

MI Key Players

  • Tilak Varma- the left-hander was pushed a place down the order due to Dewald Brevis coming in as an impact sub and he may be at number four or five again in this game with Suryakumar Yadav’s return.
  • Hardik Pandya- the captain continues to be booed at all venues this season but he has the type of character to respond well to this and he is a top performer with both bat and ball.
  • Jasprit Bumrah- the right-arm quick is recognised as one of the best bowlers across all formats. He will be looking to re-find the form from the opening game which saw him take 3/14.
  • Akash Madhwal- although Mumbai Indians were well beaten by Rajasthan Royals, the right-arm medium fast bowler impressed with figures of 3/20 from his four overs.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Kwena Maphaka, Dewald Brevis, Romario Shepherd, Shams Mulani, Nuwan Thushara

Due to the poor start with the bat in the last game, Dewald Brevis was subbed in at the end of the first over but he then made a golden duck! Brevis is likely to be the batting impact player once more although Shepherd could also be an option to combine some extra bowling

MI Team Form

Mumbai Indians come into this fixture looking to avoid their fourth successive defeat in the IPL 2024.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Naman Dhir, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Gerald Coetzee, Piyush Chawla, Jasprit Bumrah, Akash Madhwal

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Rishabh Pant was in a reflective mood after their heavy defeat against KKR in the last game but he seemed to imply that he would stick with the same group of players for this match. There are no new injuries within the Delhi Capitals squad ahead of this game.

DC Key Players

  • Rishabh Pant- the keeper-batter struck four fours and five sixes as he led the charge in pursuit of an unlikely 273. He could move himself up the order from number five in this match.
  • David Warner- the Australian left-hander was connecting cleanly with the ball and had hit three boundaries before he played on to his fellow-countryman Mitchell Starc in the last game.
  • Ishant Sharma- the right-arm fast medium bowler bowled a brilliant yorker to dismiss Andre Russell with the first ball of the final over against KKR and then got Ramandeep Singh two balls later.
  • Anrich Nortje- the South African comes into this match after conceding 59 runs against KKR but also picking up three wickets.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Abhishek Porel, Kumar Kushagra, Shivam Dubey, Lalit Yadav, Jake Fraser-McGurk

Abhishek Porel came into the game for the batting innings replacing Khaleel Ahmed in the last game. Jake Fraser-McGurk could be an option to come in for Anrich Nortje in this match.

DC Team Form

Delhi Capitals have lost three of their four games but they did claim an impressive win over Chennai Super Kings in Match 13.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Sumit Kumar, Rasikh Salam, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed

Neither side has got off to the type of start they would have hoped for this season but there is so much quality in both teams. Looking at both XIs, Mumbai Indians have the edge and we have them as the top team.
