IPL 2024: Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals – Today’s Match Prediction

The 20th game of the IPL 2024 will take place at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium between the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals. After opening the season with three straight losses, MI is under a lot of pressure to turn around their IPL campaign. With three straight losses, DC’s start to the tournament has not been great. They are currently ranked in the bottom half of the IPL 2024 points standings.

Pitch Report

Both seamers and spinners benefited from the pitch at the Wankhede Stadium for the opening IPL 2024 match, as RR held MI to a total of just over 120 runs. Even though the average first innings score at this venue in the IPL is only about 170, a total exceeding 160 will be very good to defend for either Mumbai or Delhi if the pitch stays the same.

Group Evaluation

Mumbai Indians

The Rajasthan Royals bowlers displayed excellent bowling in their previous IPL 2024 match, which severely tested the Mumbai Indians batting lineup and limited them to a below-average total. Although they managed to contain 125 runs scored by players such as Jasprit Bumrah and Akash Madhwal, they lost the match in just 16 overs due to insufficient pressure from the other bowlers.

Delhi Capitals

The Delhi Capitals’ last match saw them give up the second-highest total in IPL history as the Kolkata Knight Riders batters gave them a massive hitting masterclass. After falling behind by four wickets in the powerplay while chasing the 273 runs target, Rishabh Pant and Tristan Stubbs each scored fifty runs, but it was insufficient for the team.
