Match 69 - MUM vs DEL Preview and Fantasy Prediction
Ind T20 League 2022
Match 69- MUM vs. DEL
One of the biggest games of the season as Delhi will challenge Mumbai to seal a spot in the playoffs of Indian T20 League 2022. If Mumbai is able to beat Delhi in this crunching game, Bangalore will be challenging Lucknow at the Eliminator while if Delhi gets the win, they are the ones who will be playing against Lucknow at the iconic Eden Gardens Stadium. Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli, two stalwarts of the Bangalore team has already said that they will be cheering for Mumbai while Perth Jindal, one of the owners of Delhi has made it clear that they don’t need any help from any team and they will go for the win to qualify for the playoffs.
Can Mumbai actually derail the Rajdhani Express? Despite a very good batting performance, Mumbai lost to Hyderabad by just 3 runs. Tim David’s blistering knock of 46 off just 18 balls went in vain but the fans can hope that he can bring this form next season to help the team lift their 6th title. The Australian is set to miss the final league game as he has gone back to be with his family. Kieron Pollard is likely to replace him in the squad. Few reports also suggest that Jasprit Bumrah will miss the match and Jaydev Unadkat might replace him. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan looked in good touch in the last match but the duo needs to convert their good starts into big scores. Bangalore will count on them. Can Rohit do it for his former captain and friend? Ramandeep Singh, the young rookie bowled really well in the last match while Daniel Sams’ form is unpredictable.
In a must win game, Delhi will come all guns blazing. David Warner is in a great touch and Prithvi Shaw is more than likely to make his return in this match. The team will back this duo to deliver like the old times while Rishabh, the captain of the ship needs to play well. Mitch Marsh has been phenomenal in this tournament and he can inspire his team for a monumental victory! When it comes to bowling, Shardul Thakur showed his class in the last match. The all-rounder took four wickets in the last match while the spinning duo of Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav took two each. Overall, the team has the calibre of beating Mumbai and they will leave no stone unturned to do so!

The pitch usually is great to bat on but it has been on the slower side these days. 150-160 might just do it. Batting first will be ideal as the pitch will get slower with more time.

It will be tough for Mumbai to defeat Delhi. Delhi will give their all to win the final match of the league and qualify for the playoffs. Mumbai did well in the last match and if they can repeat the same against Delhi, you will see a great match but Delhi’s bowling is so much better than that of Hyderabad’s.
Top Fantasy Picks
Ishan Kishan is in fine form at the moment and you can back this young wicket-keeper batsman to give you a good amount of points.
David Warner is in red hot form at the moment. The Australian has already scored 427 runs in 11 matches and if Delhi aims to qualify for the playoffs, the Southpaw needs to be at his absolute best. You can even consider Warner as the captain of your side.
Tilak Verma has been a revelation for Mumbai this season. The youngster scored 376 runs in 13 matches and that’s massive for a debutant. He has been the most consistent player in the Mumbai set-up.
Mitch Marsh has been absolutely fantastic in this tournament. He is finally clicking in the tournament after failing quite a number of times. Marsh is in great form and the team will hope for a great performance in this virtual quarter-final for Delhi.
Risky Captaincy Choice
Kuldeep Yadav can be the dark horse in this match. He is once again getting back in touch and he is someone you can believe in. If you are ready to take the risk, he should be your choice.
