Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians- MI Playing 11 Against DC- IPL 2022, Match 02, DC vs MI. With Tim David joining Kieron Pollard and Tymal Mills joining Jasprit Bumrah, they have the end overs covered with bat and ball. From the players signed at the recent auction, only Jofra Archer is unavailable for the upcoming season, which leaves the Mumbai squad well-stacked.
Mumbai Indians, lack, like before, a top-quality spinner. With Murugan Ashwin and Mayank Markande as their only Indian options and Fabian Allen as an allrounder, Mumbai Indians might miss the experienced big-name spinner they would have wanted for the second half of the tournament when pitches are likely to turn more because of the constant use of the four grounds hosting the league stage.
