MI vs DC Team Previews
Tim David’s heroics were the only reason for MI’s narrow defeat to SRH in the previous match. He smashed 26 runs in the 18th over before he was run out and put MI on the verge of winning.
It’s troubling that they lost despite their best efforts.
In IPL 2022, MI’s batting has been a problem. There were finally some runs scored in the previous match between Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan but Kishan remains scratchy. Players like Tilak Varma and Tim David can be critical in securing victory, and we expect them to score plenty of runs during this contest.
New players Sanjay Yadav and Ramandeep Singh were used in the previous match by MI, while Tristan Stubbs and Mayank Markande were also used. The team will always be vulnerable to a loss if they try out new players because it takes the younger players some time to adapt to the IPL level.
Daniel Sams and Riley Meredith provide outstanding support for star fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.

DC enters this game in the best possible position to compete for a playoff spot. It has the ability to focus solely on winning the game. Everything else will be taken care of on its own accord, as is customary in this situation. Before this match, DC will have to deal with a difficult selection issue.
Prithvi Shaw is expected to be fit and available for selection for this match, according to reports. Sarfaraz Khan, on the other hand, was outstanding in the previous match at the top of the order. Shaw or Sarafarz: Which one will DC choose? Sarfaraz could be moved to the middle of the order and Lalit Yadav could be dropped.
In either case, the team’s batting lineup appears to be quite formidable. We’d put our money on David Warner and Mitchell Marsh to score some runs in this match. They have the winning record and the mental toughness to win a big game.
When it comes to the bottom of the inning, Rovman Powell and Pant have both proven to be potent weapons. This team’s batting order appears to be superior to that of Michigan.
Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, and Shardul Thakur should make up DC’s bowling lineup. Once again, this is a potent bowling lineup, but it does have a few players who can cost a lot of money on bad days.

Pitch and Conditions
There are some of the shortest boundaries in IPL 2022 at Wankhede Stadium. The average powerplay score here is just 41.2, which suggests that the new ball is aiding the bowlers.
The pitch always has a little bounce to it, and with the tournament winding down, we should see some turn as well. We believe that a score of 170 or higher is a respectable one.
MI VS DC BETTING TIPS
The Delhi Capitals are our pick to win this game. Prithvi Shaw could return to the lineup for DC, which has a better batting lineup. It is also encouraging to see David Warner and Mitchell Marsh in such good form over the last few games for Delhi Capitals.
Put your money on the Delhi Capitals to win.
