Mumbai Indians Cricket Betting Tips
Neo.bet Cricket Betting Odds: 1.78
Mumbai Indians cricket team will head into this match on the back of their first win of the UAE leg after losing the opening 3 games since the restart. Having produced an uplifting performance with both and ball in the previous game, MI has picked up the momentum to make a strong finish to the season.
Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are both in good knick but the struggles continue for Suryakumar Yadav while Ishan Kishan has already lost his spot. Saurabh Tiwary and Kieron Pollard have done well in the middle-order and Hardik Pandya also returned to form in the last match.
The bowling-unit has not been consistent, yet is improving with each cricket game. After a barren spell in the 1st half of IPL ’21, cricketer Jasprit Bumrah is on a hot-streak with 11 wickets in the past 4 games. The other bowlers will possibly be the same so Nathan Coulter-Nile will get the nod ahead of Adam Milne.
Delhi Capitals Betting Tips
Neo.bet Cricket Betting Odds: 1.98
With 2 wins from 3 matches Delhi Capitals have done quite well in the UAE although they have not been at their very best either. While the fast-bowlers have grabbed the limelight, the batsmen are not wholly enjoying the playing conditions despite some reasonably good performances.
Cricket player Steve Smith replaced Prithvi Shaw and he will probably retain his spot as the opening-partner for Shikhar Dhawan. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant have shown good form of late but the rest of the middle-order can have a few question-marks over them regarding their consistency.
The brilliant display from the Capitals bowling-unit has been at the heart of their success. The seamers Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan and Anrich Nortje have formed an outstanding fast-bowling combination in the UAE while the spinners Axar Patel and Ravi Ashwin have supported them superbly.

Event Accumulator Outcome: Kagiso Rabada & Anrich Nortje to Take a Wicket
Anrich Nortje has done a superb job since coming into the Capitals cricket team and Kagiso Rabada is reliable as ever. The two South Afrcans have spearheaded the bowling-unit taking at least 1 wicket each in their 3 matches in the UAE.
Quinton de Kock Total Runs: Over 23.5
Quinton de Kock is having a reasonably good IPL campaign for MI with 278 runs from 10 matches. The wicket-keeping opener has looked in good knick in the UAE scoring over 20 runs in the last 3 innings including a fifty.
Suryakumar Yadav Total Runs: Under 22.5
Despite making a superb start to IPL ’21 earlier in the year, Suryakumar Yadav’s form appears to be in free-fall at the moment. The MI batsman has got out for less than 10 runs in each of the previous 5 matches.
