After Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Gujarat Titans on Thursday, the equation has become clear for Delhi Capitals. They need to win the game against Mumbai Indians to enter the playoffs of IPL 2022. In this article, we take a look at what Delhi Capitals co-owner Parth Jindal had to say about his team’s final league match against Mumbai Indians.
A knock-out game for DC on Saturday
Although the team struggled in the initial stages of the tournament, Delhi Capitals has peaked at the right time. The form of David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, and Rovman Powell has been influential in this rise. However, the IPL 2020 finalists still have a final hurdle before they enter the playoffs of this season.
RCB has 16 points on board while Delhi has 14 with a game to go. However, Rishabh Pant‘s squad has a better NRR and hence, if they just manage to win their final match, they will be through to the next stage. Delhi started IPL 2022 with a fine win over Mumbai Indians and the five-time champions will be their last opponent in the group stage. This game will happen on Saturday at 7:30 pm at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Delhi Capitals co-owner Parth Jindal shares his views
Parth Jindal, the joint owner of Delhi Capitals, is an outspoken personality and often has a few opinions about his team posted on social media. Ahead of his team’s eliminator against MI, here is what Parth had to say:
Never liked anyone doing any favors for us anyway – equation is simple – we win on Saturday and we get the opportunity of going further in @IPL – if we don’t – then we are out and don’t deserve to be in the playoffs, have full confidence in my boys – let’s do this @DelhiCapitals

Although Mumbai Indians lost their previous game, they are still in decent form. The likes of Tim David and Jasprit Bumrah are in good form and Delhi will be wary of this. At the same time, MI could be preparing for the future by testing a few new players for their last game. Hence, there are multiple factors that could decide who will be the final entrant to the Top 4 of IPL 2022.
