The Delhi Capitals will be locking horns with the Mumbai Indians in the second match of IPL 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on March 27. Both teams will be heading into this contest after having rebuilt their respective squads at the two-day mega auction and would be looking forward to starting on a winning note.
The two sides will be missing a few key players for this clash. MI will be missing the services of middle-order specialist Suryakumar Yadav as he is still in rehab at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) due to a hairline thumb fracture that he had suffered last month.
DC, on the other hand, find themselves in some spot of bother as far as their overseas recruits are concerned. South African pacer Anrich Nortje is, reportedly, dealing with hip and back issues and could be warming the bench for a while. Bangladesh speedster Mustafizur Rahman and his Proteas counterpart Lungi Ngidi who had played the recently-concluded ODI series could miss out on the team’s opening game. Dynamic opener David Warner will only be taking the field after April 5 due to Cricket Australia (CA)’s central contract rules.

Ideally, the team winning the toss would look to put runs on the board since it is an afternoon game. However, they can also lose wickets in the quest of scoring at a brisk rate. Batting in the second innings could be easy provided the chasing teams have wickets in hand. Therefore, the captain calling it right at the toss will bowl first.
