Match 69: IPL 2022, MI vs DC Match Prediction – Who will win today’s IPL match between MI and DC? If DC wins against MI, they will advance to the playoffs, while RCB will advance if DC loses.
The Mumbai Indians are set to face the Delhi Capitals in the penultimate game of the IPL 2022 league stage at the Wankhede Stadium. The Rohit Sharma-led side has nothing to lose because they have already been eliminated from the playoff race, and they will look to use the options on the bench in the future. They have been playing some good cricket in recent games and will be hoping to finish the season on a high note.
On the other hand, this is a crucial game for the Delhi Capitals. Who still have a chance to make the playoffs. The Rishabh Pant-led side defeated Punjab Kings in their previous match without Prithvi Shaw. And a win in the upcoming match would be enough for them to overtake RCB on the net run rate. Shaw is expected to replace Sarfaraz Khan in the starting XI if he is fit.
