IPL 2022 – The BEST Mumbai Indians Playing XI to face the Delhi Capitals

The Mumbai Indians will face the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2022 match 69 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. IPL 2022 has been a letdown for Rohit Sharma’s team. The five-time winners have nothing to play for, but they will hope to close the season on a high note by treating their fans to a victory.

Mumbai enters this game after a three-run loss to the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game. Tim David nearly won the game for Mumbai against SRH. MI may play with the same squad as they seek to continue with the youth in order to demonstrate their skills for the coming season.

Let’s take a look at the BEST Mumbai Indians Playing XI to face the Delhi Capitals.

Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan open the innings

Rohit Sharma has struggled in this year’s IPL, scoring 266 runs at an average of 20.46. This might be the Mumbai skipper’s second failure to reach the 300-run barrier in the league, following his 286 in 2018. The Indian captain has had a few excellent starts but has been unable to capitalize on any of them; he has yet to hit a half-century this season.

Ishan Kishan, like his captain, has had a poor tournament. The southpaw, who is famed for his explosiveness upfront, has struggled in most of this season’s matches. The openers will seek to build on their performance from the previous game, in which they shared a 95-run opening stand.

Tilak Varma, Tim David, and Tristan Stubbs solidify the middle order

Tilak Varma was one of IPL 2022’s discoveries. On multiple times, the middle-order batter has looked sturdy and has helped Mumbai keep the ship afloat. Indian captain Rohit Sharma hailed the 19-year-old, saying he has the potential to represent India in all three forms.

Tristan Stubbs was called up to the Mumbai team to replace the injured Tymal Mills. The 21-year-old South African is a good middle-order batsman who has been named to the South African T20 team for their June trip to India.

Tim David is another athlete who has received notice for his power-hitting ability. The Singaporean-Australian cricketer was omitted from the roster earlier this season, but his recent performances have demonstrated what the club missed in IPL 2022. In the previous match against SRH, he hammered Natarajan for four sixes in the 18th over, including a massive 114m six.

Ramandeep Singh, Sanjay Yadav, and Daniel Sams come in as the all-rounders

Daniel Sams has so far taken 12 wickets in IPL 2022 and has impressed with his variations. The Australian is also known for his big-hitting ability, and he was inserted at No. 3 in the last match but failed to make an impression.

Ramandeep Singh is making his debut this year. The right-arm fast had a fantastic session against SRH, finishing with 3/20 in four overs and an economy of 6.70.

Sanjay Yadav made his IPL debut in the final match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, when the Mumbai Indians drafted the left-handed all-rounder. During the auctions in February 2022, he was purchased for INR 50 lakhs.

Jasprit Bumrah, Mayank Markande, and Riley Meredith form the bowling attack

Jasprit Bumrah is another veteran player who has had a disappointing season by his lofty standards. In 13 IPL 2022 games, the Indian fast has only 12 wickets. However, his 5/10 versus KKR is the best of the season so far. The yorker specialist has looked like himself in recent games, particularly in the death overs.

Riley Meredith has taken eight wickets so far this season. The Australian pacer has been costly in his periods and has failed to provide help for Jasprit Bumrah and Daniel Sams.

Mayank Markande made his season debut against SRH, however, he failed to leave an impression, going for 31 runs in three overs. Mumbai would like him to spin a web against the Delhi Capitals in their final IPL 2022 game.
