Delhi Capitals (DC) will aim to seal their place in the Playoffs in the current race Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 beating Bombay Indians (MI) on Saturday, during Match 69 of the current edition at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. If Rishabh Pant and Co. manage to defeat MI, they will overthrow Bangalore Royal Challengers (RCB) of the tournament.
It would be an exciting contest between MI and DC, with a crucial Playoff spot on the line. Pant would be pleased to see that his destiny to take the next step is in his hands. For MI, a five-time champion, his last spot is almost guaranteed. However, if the Rohit Sharma-led franchise manages to stage an upset, Virat Kohli’s RCB would be delighted with the outcome.
DC hopes David Warner will go wild against MI. Warner went for a golden duck last time out against the Punjab Kings (PBKS), and will be keen to get back to their best. MI, meanwhile, will rely on their power hitter Tim David and their talismanic fast pitcher Jasprit Bumrah to end things on a high note.

The MI skipper didn’t have a memorable outing in IPL 2022 but was seen in good touch last time out against PBKS. He would be desperate to end the campaign on a high note, and Virat Kohli’s recent “return to his best” would inspire him further.
DC are much favored on paper to beat MI, but still, our prediction would be in favor of Rohit Sharma’s boys.
