Bottom-placed sides meet in match 59 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. Chennai, ninth in the points table, hammered Delhi by 91 runs in their previous game. Mumbai, on the other hand, succumbed to a 52-run defeat against Kolkata a few days ago. The defending champions beat five-time winners in the first meeting between both teams this season.

Mumbai pacer Bumrah crushed Kolkata with his maiden Indian T20 League five-wicket haul. He has reached the double-digit mark in the 2022 campaign.

W,0,0,1,W,0,6,W by Moeen Ali in the last 8 balls - What a spell.
Shivam Dube made a quickfire 32 to steer Chennai towards a 200+ total against Delhi. He is also 21 runs away from 300 runs in the 15th edition. Teenager Tilak Varma hasn't been prolific with the bat in the last two matches for Mumbai. He had registered a half-century in the first meeting between Chennai and Mumbai this season.

Devon Conway has been outstanding since returning to the Chennai playing 11. He has scored a hat-trick of half-centuries. All-rounder Moeen Ali, too, has been impressing fantasy cricket players.
