The 16th game of the Indian Premier League 2023 between the Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians looks to be an exciting match. Neither team has won a game yet and will be looking for their first points of the season. The Capitals were defeated by the Rajasthan Royals in their most recent game, while the Mumbai Indians were defeated by the Chennai Super Kings in their first home game.
The Delhi Capitals have now lost three consecutive games, and the team’s confidence is low. The top order has not delivered, which is a major concern for the team going into this game. Mumbai Indians have a better batting lineup. In this game, the stakes are high for both teams, and we anticipate a close contest.
The 16th Match between Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians will take place on April 11th, 2023 at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.
Match Details to Note
Match: Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians, 16th Match, Indian Premier League 2023
Date: April 11, 2023 (Tuesday)
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi
David Warner would be concerned. His team was defeated by the Rajasthan Royals by 57 runs in their most recent game. It was their third defeat in three games. The top order has looked pathetic and needs to step up to the plate. Warner has been in good form, and he must lead from the front to keep the team’s playoff hopes alive.
David Warner has scored runs in all three games and will need help from fellow opener Prithvi Shaw, who has only scored 19 runs in three games. Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw, and Lalit Yadav must score runs in the middle order, as they have done in previous games. Axar Patel, Rovmann Powell, and Abhishek Porell will also be needed for late-game runs.
On the majority of occasions, the bowling attack has been found wanting. With the new ball, the team will need good spells from Anrich Nortje and Khaleel Ahmed. Mukesh Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, and Axar Patel haven’t lived up to their billing, and the team is counting on them to deliver.
David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Ripal Patel, Rovman Powell, Sarfaraz Khan, Yash Dhull, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, Aman Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Praveen Dubey, Vicky Ostwal, Ishant Sharma, Phil Salt, Mukesh Kumar, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw
Players to watch out for:
The Australian opener and captain has already scored 158 runs in this tournament and is in good personal form.
The 26-year-old all-rounder scored 38 runs off 24 balls in his IPL 2023 debut against Rajasthan Royals.
The South African pace bowler went wicketless against the Rajasthan Royals, but he has been one of the best and most consistent bowlers in all formats in the last 12-18 months.
Possible Playing XI:
David Warner (c), Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Abishek Porel (wk), Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Prithvi Shaw
So far, the IPL’s most successful team has failed to live up to its billing. In the previous game, Rohit Sharma’s team lost by 7 wickets to the Chennai Super Kings. Their batsmen have failed to deliver, and their bowling attack has struggled. Sharma would like to put this game behind them and put on a good performance.
At the top, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma must score runs. It was one of the issues in two games. Suryakumar Yadav must bat third and score runs in the middle order alongside Cameron Green and Tilak Varma. Tim David, Tristan Stubbs, and Arshad Khan would be ideal for runs down the order.
Their bowling resources are depleted, and Jason Behrendorff and Arshad Khan will be required to bowl tight spells with the new ball. Green bowled well in the previous game, and he and Piyush Chawla will need to bowl in the right areas to stop the run flow. Kumar Kartikeya and Hrithik Shokeen will be expected to deliver.
Rohit Sharma (c), Tim David, Ramandeep Singh, Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Tristan Stubbs, Dewald Brevis, Jofra Archer, Arjun Tendulkar, Arshad Khan, Kumar Kartikeya, Hrithik Shokeen, Jason Behrendorff, Akash Madhwal, Cameron Green, Piyush Chawla, Duan Jansen, Vishnu Vinod, Shams Mulani, Nehal Wadhera, Raghav Goyal
Players to watch out for:
After dominating in 2022 and the first half of 2023, the middle-order batter has fallen out of favor. He is, however, one of the most lethal T20 batters in the world and could do well in this game.
The Australian international scored 31 runs off 22 balls against Chennai Super Kings, but the rest of his team has yet to lay the groundwork for his role as finisher.
The Australian left-arm pace bowler dismissed Devon Conway in the first over of the innings on Saturday and will always take advantage of any swing that is available.
Possible Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Tristan Stubbs, Arshad Khan, Hrithik Shokeen, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendorff, Kumar Kartikeya
Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Top Team Batsmen
Our batting picks for the Delhi Capitals are David Warner, Manish Pandey, and Rilee Rossouw. Rossouw has six T20 centuries to his name in his career. Pandey has scored over 6600 T20 runs and has a best T20 score of 129 not out.
Our Mumbai Indians batsmen are Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, and Suryakumar Yadav. On Saturday, Kishan hit 32 runs off 21 balls at the top of the order against the Chennai Super Kings. In his T20 career, skipper Sharma has six hundreds.
Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Top Team Bowlers
For the Delhi Capitals, we like Anrich Nortje, Axar Patel, and Kuldeep Yadav with the ball. Axar’s best T20 figures are 4-21, and he could do well in Delhi on this surface. Yadav has two wickets in the tournament so far, but a wrist spinner can always run through a side on a good day.
For the Mumbai Indians, we recommend Jason Behrendorff, Piyush Chawla, and Cameron Green. In the previous match, Chawla took the wicket of the experienced Ajinkya Rahane. Green has the best T20 bowling figures in the game, 2-16.
Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Head to Head
These two teams have been evenly matched throughout the IPL, with Mumbai Indians currently leading the head-to-head 17-15. The Delhi Capitals had won three consecutive matches before being defeated by the Mumbai Indians in Match 69 last year.

Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Toss Prediction
The teams that have chased the score have won four of the last five games here. The slowness of the surface makes it difficult to set scores. In this game, the team that bats first must not be afraid to bowl first.
Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Pitch Report
The Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi is a good venue for batsmen to settle in. They can easily score runs because of their fast outfield and smaller boundaries. The wicket is slow, and fast bowlers have few options. The spinners have a good record and benefit from good wicket support.
The skies over Delhi will be clear on April 11, and the evening will be warm. As we saw in the previous game, the wicket will be slow. On this track, batsmen must be cautious and play to the merits of the ball. The team batting first would like to score more than 180 runs.
Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Prediction
The Delhi Capitals’ weaknesses have been exposed in the last three games. They lack a strong bowling attack and their batsmen are out of form. To win this game, the hosts must perform heroically. The Mumbai Indians have also struggled to get going, and their top order has been inconsistent. However, with a stronger batting lineup, the Mumbai Indians will start ahead of the Capitals in this game. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!
Mumbai Indians is the favourite to beat Delhi Capitals at the odds of 1.78.
Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Most Recommended Player for Bet:
Suryakumar Yadav has three T20 centuries and 37 fifties, and he is a strong contender to be Mumbai Indians’ leading run scorer against Delhi Capitals.
