When Mumbai Indians take on Delhi Capitals at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on May 21 (Saturday at 7:30pm IST), their fans may not be cheering for them as much as Royal Challengers Bangalore’s faithful would do. It’s because this game means absolutely nothing for Mumbai but for Bangalore it’s a make or break fixture. Find below why that is the case.

Teams Status

Mumbai Indians

Whatever has happened between them in the past, but the situation today is that Bangalore fans have been praying that Mumbai somehow manage to beat Delhi in this fixture today. 

That’s because Bangalore currently occupy the fourth and final playoff spot but their net run rate is in the negative. If Mumbai are beaten by the fifth-placed Delhi, then it would be curtains for Bangalore.

Mumbai have fallen below their own fans’ expectations all season but lately they have shown some signs of life, and that could make Bangalore fans a little nervous. Nonetheless, they have lost two of their last three, which makes it 10 defeats for them in the season.

Delhi Capitals

Unlike Bangalore, Delhi have their fate in their own hands. If they win, they will go through to the playoffs. They are in this position, thanks to victories in their last two matches.

Their Aussie allrounder Mitchell Marsh has come alive of late, while his compatriot David Warner has also had his moments all through the season.

Prithvi Shaw will still be unavailable despite having recovered from a typhoid bout and while that would have been a problem usually, Sarfaraz Khan’s hitting in the last game promises to offset that loss.

The biggest concern for Delhi has been the poor form of their captain Rishabh Pant. This is an opportunity for thim to get back among runs and silence his critics.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Delhi to win @ 1.784

Delhi Capitals have beaten Mumbai Indians in all of their last three meetings and none have even been too close. This has been a remarkably poor season for Mumbai while Delhi, despite their problems, have impressed at several junctures of the tournament. With the season on the line, we expect Delhi to respond. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Batters H2H. Mitchell Marsh or Sarfaraz Khan – Marsh @ 1.67

This is a straight up run battle between Mitchell Marsh and Sarfaraz Khan. We liked what we saw in Sarfaraz in the last game but he is a kind of batter who takes more than his fair share of risks. Between his risky approach versus Marsh’s controlled aggression, we choose the latter, especially because the Aussie is on a run roll right now, and has fifties in each of his last two matches. The odds for this play have been sourced from Parimatch.


Mumbai lead the head to head against Delhi by a slim margin of 16-15. This is the chance for Delhi to draw level, and we think they would.
