The Rohit Sharma-led side looks solid with a nice blend of youth and experience. The batting packs a punch with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, and Suryakumar Yadav (unavailable for the game against Delhi) leading the charge.

They also have an exciting young talent in Proteas youngster Dewald Brevis. The bowling also has a lot of experience with pacer Jasprit Bumrah leading the charge.

He will have Tymal Mills (death-overs specialist), Jaydev Unadkat (striking with the new ball) and allrounder Daniel Sams for support. The only slight concern for MI is the spin department. With Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya gone, Murugan Ashwin is set to take up the lead. He does not have a huge amount of IPL experience.

Delhi Capitals have quite a young squad with the majority of players below 30. Their batting looks solid with skipper Rishabh Pant, opener David Warner, and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh in it. The only slight issue is they do not have a solid experienced Indian

bowler apart from Shardul Thakur. It remains to be seen how pacers Khaleel Ahmed and Chetan Sakariya perform.

BCCI announced the schedule on March 6 for TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 which will be held in Mumbai and Pune. A total number of 70 league matches and 4 Playoff games will be played in the duration of 65 days.

The 15th season will start on 26th March at the Wankhede stadium with a blockbuster clash between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.

The Brabourne Stadium has bigger boundaries than the Wankhede and so the spinners have a bit of a chance as well. The par score at this venue is around 170 batting first.

The team that wins the toss may opt to bowl first. This is a day game and batting could become a bit better in the second inning. It should be noted that teams batting first have won four out of the previous six T20 games. The team batting first should aim for a score above 180 runs.

The weather forecast for Mumbai is excellent. There is no rain predicted but there is a lot of humidity. That could mean dew as the lights start to take effect. The pitch should be excellent to bat on with a nice amount of bounce and carry. The pitch is made of red clay which makes the ball more bounce.

Mumbai will experience archetypal weather in the months of March, April and May. The hot, humid weather often gives way for cloudy and rainy days closer to the monsoon.

The match will be played at Brabourne Stadium. The pitch generally favours batters. In the 11 IPL matches played so far, the team batting second have won 5 times. The average first innings are 157 runs and the second innings score is 147 runs.

Brabourne Stadium

Brabourne stadium is located in Mumbai. Mumbai is a coastal town, the late March, April and early May will see searing heat and humidity. As the days move into late May, we can expect a bit of rain too as the monsoon will set its foot in India. Even otherwise too, we can expect the interruption of rain in a couple of matches as summer rains are not uncommon in this part of the world.

Highest total: 212/6 by Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals

Lowest total: 115 by Mumbai Indians vs Deccan Chargers

Highest individual score: 104, Shane Watson (Rajasthan Royals)

Best bowling: 4/23, Chris Morris of Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders.

Highest chased: 181/5 by Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings.

The pitch at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium is generally given assistance to both bowlers and batsmen with the dew factor coming to play deep in the match. The short boundaries and a quick outfield should delight the batsmen of course.

Brabourne Stadium, which is owned by the Cricket Club of India (CCI), is roughly 700 meters from Wankhede stadium. It has a capacity of 20,000 people and holds the distinction of being one of the oldest stadiums in India. It is well known for hosting India’s inaugural T20I match. At one point, it served as the home venue of the Mumbai Indians.
