Latest stats and trends
  • Dehli Capitals were the top team in the group stages last year topping the group with 10 wins. They were excellent in the group stages in both India and UAE. 
  • David Warner was the big play in the IPL mega auction replacing Dhawan. He is one of the top batsmen in the world and possesses a maturity that will help the Capitals this season. 
  • With the ball, we like the signing of Thakur and Ngidi who will go well this IPL. Mitchell Marsh is a good add as an allrounder and will pitch in with wickets as well as runs. 
  • It will be tough for the Capitals to replicate last season after the mega auction as they had a really well-balanced side previously. This is a new team with the opportunity to make a new for themselves as the team to beat in theIPL 2022 group stages. 

Dehli Capital Odds

1/1

Latest stats and trends
  • The Mumbai Indians were the biggest disappointment in IPL 2021. They started the tournament as favourites after winning 2 in a row but they never really got going. The UAE wickets did not suit their pace bowlers but they were not doing well in India in the first half of the tournament. 
  • They have made a lot of changes to the squad at the mega auction and will be looking to get back to winning ways quickly this year. 
  • In my opinion, they have the strongest squad this year with quality throughout. It will interesting to see how Arjun Tendulkar gets on when he plays. There is a big expectation on his shoulders with his surname. 

Mumbai Inidans Odds

4/5

Head to head stats

2021 IPL results

  • Group stage – Dehli Capitals won by 4 wickets
  • Group stage – Dehli Capitals won by 6 wickets

The Capitals won both matches on the head to head last year. This was no surprise with the poor performances of the Indians and the excellent form of the Cpatials. With the changed teams this will have little impact on today’s match. 

Match Prediction & Tips

This is a tricky match to call as based on the squads the Mumbai Indians look the strongest. When we look at the historic stat we see the Indians have a terrible record in their first match-winning just 1 in the last 7 years. There is something about them that means they do not start well as a team and it’s almost like they need to lose to get going. 

Match Prediction: Dehli Capitals to win at 1/1*
