Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Betting Tips 20/04/2021

Teams Status

Delhi Capitals, thanks to their win over Punjab Kings last night, now have four points to their name. They owe their latest two points to their in-form opener Shikhar Dhawan. The lefty again missed out on an IPL ton but his 92 off 49 laid the found of his team’s victory in a sizable run chase. He played at such a pace that when Marcus Stoinis scored the winning runs, almost two overs were left to play, which is quite an achievement considering they were chasing almost 200 runs.

Dhawan has dazzled twice in three IPL matches this season. He will again be the biggest threat to Mumbai Indians bowlers on Tuesday night.

The Delhi top order will also be keen to atone for their horror start in the IPL final last year when their failure reduced their team to 3-22 – a setback they never recovered from and ended up missing out on what would have been their maiden title.

Mumbai Indians, too, have four points but while Delhi’s two wins are sandwiched between a defeat, theirs have been consecutive and came after a loss in their opening game. It means Mumbai are on a two-match winning streak.

What’s impressive about Mumbai so far is that their bowlers have done more than a decent job in their victories, managing to defend 152 against Kolkata Knight Riders and 150 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They almost defended 159 on the opening night as well but lost on the final ball of the match.

Spin duo of Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar along with usual suspects Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have all contributed their share with the ball.

But what is their strength is also their weakness. Mumbai’s bowling unit has had to work overtime because their batsmen have not been managing big totals. In fact, 159, 152 and 150 show that their production is actually diminishing.

Rohit Sharma has had starts but failed to truly hit top gear as we’re used to seeing him. Same goes for Quinton de Kock and the lower middle-order featuring Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya. It appears as if Mumbai batters are still basking in the glory of their 2020 triumph. Knowing their pedigree, though, it’s a matter of time before they get serious.

Tip: Delhi Capital to win @ 2.104

Mumbai Indians have completely dominated this fixture in the recent past. Of the last five matches played between these two sides, they have won them all and almost all were comfortable victories. With such a lopsided head-to-head record, it would take tremendous gall to root for an upset. But that is exactly what we’re going to propose.

Mumbai have had results so far but still seem a bit hungover. Delhi’s top order has been firing on all cylinders. One more hot start and Mumbai will have to play catch up for the rest of the innings. 

Tip: Jasprit Bumrah and Kagiso Rabada to take a wicket each @ 1.6

Both Jasprit Bumrah and Kagiso Rabada are wicket takers for their respective sides. It’s unlike of them to go wicketless. Rabada has picked up at least one in both the matches he’s played so far this season. Bumrah did not get any in one of the three matches he’s played so far. At odds of 1.6, the bet comes with pretty decent odds and warrants a shot.


This is more a gut feel rather than a calculated guess. Mumbai are a great side but they’ve had disproportionate amount of success than the talent they have. Other teams have great rosters too. Delhi could be keen to beat them, Mumbai are not quite in their playoff mode, which offers the latter the perfect time to cause an upset.
