Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals, TATA IPL 2022: The match betwen Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals (DC) played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai is a misy-win match for Delhi, failing which they will knocked out of the tournament and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will make it to the playoffs of IPL 2022. As things stands, it is raining at the Wankhede and that means there is a chance of a wash-out.

There are no reserve days and therefore it will effectively mean that both teams will share a point each. While a wash-out won’t really matter for Mumbai but for Delhi, it is a matter of concern. In simple words, a wash-out would mean Delhi Capitals would be knocked out of the tournament and RCB will go through to the playoffs.

Delhi Capitals are now in the fifth spot of the points table with 14 points, just below RCB who are in the fourth spot currently with 16 points. But a wash-out would mean that DC can only reach upto 15 points, a clear 0ne-point deficit from RCB. A win however for Delhi would ensure that they qualify for the playoffs because of a better net run-rate.

Delhi’s current net run-rate is +0.255 while RCB are at -0.253. The Faf du Plessis-led side have only themselves to blame for the situation they find themselves because of the way they had lost their previous matches. Delhi’s fate is however in their own hands and win is all they need. But for that to happen, the rain needs to stop and let’s hope that we get a good game of cricket.
