The 2022 Indian Premier League is right around the corner with the VIVO IPL-15 edition starting this weekend. The second match of the IPL kicks off between the Delhi Capitals and the Mumbai Indians at Brabourne Stadium. While both teams are tipped as favourites to win the the tournament, which team will come out on top? Keep reading to find out our IPL prediction of who will win this match as well as our recommendations for top online cricket betting sites specifically geared towards IPL betting.

Delhi Capitals Team Preview

Going into the 2022 edition, the Capitals retained Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, Rishabh Pant, and Anrich Nortje and further strengthened their squad with some prominent names such as David Warner (Rs 6.25 crore), Khaleel Ahmed (Rs 5.25 crore), and Mitchell Marsh (Rs 6.50 crore) at the 2022 Mega Auction. Warner, after a bout of poor performances in recent years, made an emphatic comeback seen in the T20 World Cup in 2021. This caught the attention of the Delhi Capitals who picked him up at the auction for Rs 6.25 crore. Coupled with Prithvi Shaw, they would certainly make a formidable opening pair and seems like the Captials' best choice.

Coming from the Chennai Super Kings, Shardul Thakur was bought for Rs 10.75 crore. The medium-fast bowler will surely bring some quality to the team but could also be an advantage to the batting department as a tailender batsman.

Skipper Pant will continue to lead the team after his success during the tournament last year before it was suspended, in which Pant led the Capitals to six wins in eight matches. Marsh and Mandeep Singh are likely to join him in the middle order.

Mumbai Indians Team Preview

Skipper Rohit Sharma will be hoping to lead his team to victory after a somewhat underwhelming campaign in 2021. The Mumbai Indians edged closer and closer to victory, however, ultimately knocked out of the tournament in the playoffs. Backed with a strong team with the likes of Keiron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav, and Jasprit Bumrah - who were also the only four players who were retained from the 2021 squad - it comes as no surprise they are tipped as one of the favourites to win another IPL title. However, it looks like the team will have to suffer an early blow in the tournament as their opener Yadav has suffered a thumb injury. With a five day break until their next match, it is expected that Yadav will rejoin the team then.

Right-arm Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is the Mumbai Indian’s most prolific bowlers for the team. Bumrah took the third spot for most wickets taken in the 2021 edition having picked up 21 wickets in just 14 matches. Despite being one of the top IPL bowlers in the IPL, Bumrah has not been able to take the Purple Cap. However, since 2018, he has been climbing the table for most wickets and for this reason, Bumrah could be a great contender for the Purple Cap for the 2022 edition and we predict will win this award. Many IPL betting sites offer interesting markets outside of the typical win or draw predictions, so be sure to find one that suits your preferences.

Wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan is now back at the Mumbai Indians after they paid a staggering Rs 15.25 crore - making him the most costly player at the 2022 IPL Auction. There will certainly be a fair amount of pressure on his shoulders to perform well. He is predicted to open with Sharma, which could certainly start their journey into the tournament on a high.

Toss Prediction

The team lucky enough to win the toss will most likely want to bat first. The team batting first will be aiming for a score in the region of 150 to ensure their opponents won’t be able to chase the score down so easily. The weather forecast in Mumbai for the 26th is cloudy and sunny, with the temperature only predicted to drop a few degrees as the match progresses. Check out our toss prediction guide for further information.

Pitch Conditions

The Brabourne Stadium pitch is considered good for batting and has a reputation of being a hard and flat pitch. For previous matches however, there have been reports that the pitch is slow which can definitely make the captains worry.

Our Match Prediction

Although the history between these two teams are fairly balanced, we think the Mumbai Indians will be able to get the first win in the match today. We are expecting to see this team capitalise on playing in their home city, something that the other IPL franchises are not able to do. As one of the most successful teams in the IPL history winning five of the last nine editions, we are anticipating some great things from the Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2022 edition. Do you agree with our match prediction today?
