Match: Delhi vs Mumbai, Indian T20 league
Date: 27th March 2022
Time: 03:30 PM IST
Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai
On Sunday, March 27, 2022, Rishabh’s Delhi will face Rohit’s Mumbai in Match 2 of the Indian T20 League 2022 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai at 3:30 PM IST. This season, the finalists for the 2020 edition will begin their campaign against one another. These two have been among the league’s strongest teams for the past few years. They’ll be expected to put on a show once more.
In the 30 matches played between these 2 teams, Delhi won 14 matches while Mumbai claimed the victory 16 times.
Some of the team’s major overseas players will miss the first game for Delhi, but coach Ponting claims that this would have no effect on the team’s performance. It will be difficult to choose the ideal lineup for their first game, but it will provide Pant and coach Ricky the opportunity to try out some fresh ideas. Anrich Nortje isn’t fully fit and will be out for at least the first two games. Powell, who offers extra firepower to the middle, will be the X-factor for them.
Last season, the Mumbai Indians fell short of expectations, failing to enter the playoffs. In this edition, playing on their home turf will be a distinct benefit. Due to a hairline thumb fracture, MI will be without middle-order specialist Suryakumar Yadav. There are many new names in the lineup, and we shall see a different Mumbai Indians team than the last time we saw them. Tim David is a great buy for them, and he has the potential to be a game-changer.
The Brabourne Stadium is known for its prolific scoring. Because of the heat, slow bowlers may receive some help during the day. The batsmen, on the other hand, should have an easier time.
