Mumbai Indians

MI looked like a much stronger hitting unit in the previous game and we think it's only going to become better. RCB is saved by Dinesh Karthik but his top order is below average. However, Glenn Maxwell will be back for this game.

RCB won their last game against RR thanks to some great performances from Dinesh Karthik and Shahbaz Ahmed. They helped the team recover from 87-5 to eventually chase 170 with nearly an over.

RCB's bowling was pretty good in this match as David Willey and Harshal Patel played very tight lines while Hasaranga also posed some difficult questions. One concern would be the lack of Mohammad Siraj's wickets. He's the longest-serving seam bowler on the team but struggled to make the early breakthroughs.

Hitting RCB also looked a bit shaky. Faf du Plessis is the only top batter in form while Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli, David Willey and Sherfane Rutherford continue to fight. Dinesh Karthik played the role of a finisher with brilliance, but can you really expect to save the team every time?

It will be interesting to see who makes room for Glenn Maxwell in this match. We think Sherfane Rutherford might be the one missing out, but RCB might be in for a surprise.

We think the IPL betting sites overstate RCB a bit in this competition.

Mumbai Indians

MI was hit by an absolutely brilliant inning by Pat Cummins in his previous match. There are times when the team just doesn't have the answers and this was one of those cases. We think MI would do well to focus on some of the positive aspects of the previous game.

Dewald Brevis looked fit to play at this level as he impressed in his IPL debut and Kieron Pollard seemed to be on the mend. We thought it was very tough for Tim David to be dropped right after two innings and expect him to be brought back in place of Daniel Sams.

The obvious choice for a replacement is Jayadev Unadkat, another left arm sailor who has had much success locally in Pune in the past.

Rohit Sharma was out of shape and Ishan Kishan is also struggling for the quick starts. Still, the return of Suryakumar Yadav and the continued brilliance of Tilak Varma give MI an edge.

Tymal Mills and Jasprit Bumrah are reliable in any situation, but the same cannot be said for M Ashwin, Basil Thampi or Daniel Sams (if he plays). The decision to invest in Jofra Archer even if he doesn't play this season could prove to be a big problem for MI.

Prediction

These are two closely matched teams who are still finding their best combinations to advance. We think the matchups are skewed towards the Delhi Capitals and we also think the return of David Warner will give their punches a much needed boost. We're yet to see the best of Pant and Shaw in IPL 2022 and this could be the match where they start to shine.

We bet on the Delhi Capitals to win the game by 1.86.
