IPL 2022, DC vs MI Preview: Mumbai Indians’ record poor in the first match, Delhi Capitals rely on Rishabh Pant

Mumbai: Five-time champions Mumbai Indians will take on Delhi Capitals in their first match of the Indian Premier League (IPL). This match will be played from 3.30 pm on Sunday. Mumbai have retained their core team comprising captain Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard and Jasprit Bumrah. The performance of these four will be very important in the match against Delhi at the Cricket Club of India ground. Everyone is aware of Rohit Sharma’s captaincy. Now it remains to be seen how Rishabh Pant performs for Delhi as a captain, who is being considered as the future captain of India.

Rohit has already told that he and Ishaan will open the innings. If both are in form, they can tear apart any attack in the world. Delhi bowlers have to be careful about this. Suryakumar Yadav is not available for this match who is in ‘rehabilitation’ at NCA. Mumbai will have to focus on their middle-order and lower-middle order, with only Pollard experienced, it remains to be seen who gets a chance among Tilak Verma, Tim David and the young South African batsman Dewald Brevis, touted as the ‘next AB de Villiers’.

Bumrah will lead the pace attack and left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat can also be effective on the Brabourne Stadium pitch. Mumbai have effective spinners in Mayank Markandeya and Murugan Ashwin. Mumbai has lost its first match in the last 9 seasons.

On the other hand, Pant and Prithvi Shaw can open the innings for Delhi as David Warner of Australia is not yet associated with the team. The key to Delhi’s performance will lie in the hands of Pant, who will have to lead from the front. West Indies’ aggressive batsman Rovman Powell, in-form Sarfaraz Khan and U-19 World Cup winning captain Yash Dhul will be expected to do well in the middle order. All-rounder Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel will play the role of finishers.

The spin will be handled by Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav along with Axar. Head coach Ricky Ponting can also try young pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti, who has been doing well in the tournament.
