It 6-4 in favor of MI when it comes to head to head battle against DC in the last 10 games.

MI vs DC Prediction

A team based out of India’s political and cultural capital on one side and on the other side, a team from India’s financial and commercial capital. Delhi Capitals (previously Daredevils) and Mumbai Indians have shared a pretty competitive rivalry in the Indian Premier League, which makes this MI vs DC prediction, not an easy one.

With two new teams joining the league, the 2022 mega auction forced MI to rebuild their squad once again. MI had a difficult time finalizing their four retentions but eventually, they went with captain Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, and Kieron Pollard.

The franchise had to let go of the superstar all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, and Trent Boult, who were all instrumental for them in previous editions.

DC lost the golden chance to win a title in the final of IPL 2020 against mighty MI.

Cricket Betting

In the auction, MI went to a bidding war to buy back Ishan Kishan. They also brought in some very good players in Tim David, Tymal Mills, and Riley Meredith.

MI also locked the services of South African youngster Dewald Brevis and English fast bowler Jofra Archer for the future. Archer is set to miss the IPL 2022 but is likely to form a lethal bowling pair with Bumrah from next year. 

Like their counterparts, Delhi Capitals also had to disband the strong squad they had built in the 2018-21 cycle.

DC retained the new skipper Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Anrich Nortje, and Axar Patel. But they had to let go of some of their crucial players in Shikhar Dhawan, Avesh Khan, Kagiso Rabada and Ravichandran Ashwin. 

Overall, MI have a more balanced squad and should be favorites in the DC vs MI prediction

MI vs DC Match Prediction

As far as the IPL 2022 is concerned, MI vs DC match prediction could be an interesting one.

MI are the most successful franchise in the league with five IPL and two CLT20 trophies in their cabinet. DC haven’t tasted the championship feeling yet but are on a steady rise in recent years.

MI have 100% win record against DC in the IPL 2020 and DC did the same in IPL 2018 and IPL 2021 by winning all matches against MI.

Cricket Betting

Mumbai Indians have assembled a quality squad despite shelling so much of their purse for the future. The bowling unit of Bumrah, Tymal Mills, and Riley Meredith can be potent and should find a spot in the playing XI straight away.

But the spin department looks uninspiring. The batting unit has a good mix of complementing styles in the likes of Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, and Tim David. Then there’s Daniel Sams who adds a bit of batting cushion.

DC have put together a batting unit that could be a nightmare to deal with for bowling sides. David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, and Rovman Powell should complement Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant exceptionally well.

All of them can be expected in playing XI right away. Along with keeping, Rishabh Pant will also lead the side after Shreyas Iyer opted to go into the auctions.

DC’s bowling unit, on the other hand, will be highly dependent on Anrich Nortje, who will be coming off an injury layoff.

The rest of the attack comprising Shardul Thakur, Khaleel Ahmed, Chetan Sakariya, and Kuldeep Yadav doesn’t look promising. As such, the DC vs MI match prediction is likely to favor Mumbai Indians. 

All said and done, the MI vs DC IPL contest today is a tough match prediction to zero in given how the teams have historically faced off against each other.

That said, the MI vs DC prediction in 2022 at least should favor Mumbai Indians in our today match prediction feature given how the franchise did an exceptional job at the Indian Premier League 2022 mega auction.

MI vs DC Team Scores.


Talking about the matches played in India, MI have come out on top in 12 of the 22 games compared to 10 wins by DC. Coming to the recent record, DC defeated Mumbai in both the league games in 2018 as well as the 2021 edition.

In 2019, both the teams won a game each. MI had tremendous success against Delhi in the IPL 2020, where they defeated DC in all four matches, including Qualifier 1 and the final.

DC’s auction was a story of two halves and the first of them should help them dominate MI vs DC head to head games and win more matches in the future.

First, they packed the side with outstanding players in David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Rovman Powell in the batting department. But then some very questionable buys meant their bowling attack for the upcoming edition would be pretty average.
