Delhi Capitals v Mumbai Indians Preview

After a less than stellar opening day loss to the Royal Challengers of Bangalore, the Mumbai Indians are back on track after a big 10-wicket win over the Kolkata Knight Riders. They’ll be looking to continue this momentum against a side who opened the season with a win over the Chennai Super Kings.

The head-to-head records are on the side of the Mumbai Indians in this game, but just about. The sides have squared off 28 times, 16 of which have been taken by Mumbai while 12 were won by the Delhi Capitals. That record is pretty close to even, but it was exactly even four matches ago when the Mumbai Indians began a four-game winning streak over their opponents here.

Delhi Capitals v Mumbai Indians Odds

The Mumbai Indians are slight favourites in their third game of the year, coming in at a price of 4/6. The Delhi Capitals are underdogs at the price of 11/10. If you’re risky enough to back a draw, you’ll get wide odds of 14/1, but we can’t recommend that you take that option, as it’s a result which has yet to occur in history.

Delhi Capitals v Mumbai Indians Tips

Our win probability calculator has it slightly in favour of MI, and we’re leaning that way too. We like Rohit Sharma as the MI top batsman at 5/2 and Kagiso Rabada to be the away team’s top bowler at 19/10.

Rohit Sharma to be away team’s top batsman – 5/2

Suryakumar Yadav beat him to this honour last time out so he wouldn’t be a bad bet either. But we fancy Sharma to impress against the Delhi Capitals in particular, so he might even be worth a look in the man of the match market.

K Rabada to be away team’s top bowler – 19/10

Kagiso Rabada is one of the best fast bowlers in the world and the South Africa paceman can ensure his side can keep the Delhi Capitals batting line-up quiet.
