In Match 69 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Mumbai Indians (MI) will take on Delhi Capitals (DC) at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.
The equation is crystal clear for the Capitals. If the Rishabh Pant-led side manages to claim the victory, they will qualify for the playoffs.
Mumbai, on the other hand, have nothing to lose, and the five-time champions will be hoping to end their campaign high with a win in their last league match.
The pitch at the Wankhede is likely to offer an even contest between bowlers and batters. With an expectation of 71 per cent humidity, dew will play its role, making it worthy for captains to bowl first.
