On Saturday, Mumbai Indians will face Delhi Capitals in a game that will decide the final entrant to the playoffs. Royal Challengers Bangalore is dependent on Mumbai to defeat Delhi to secure the playoff spot. In this article, we take a look as Dinesh Karthik supports Mumbai hilariously ahead of the defining game for RCB on Saturday in IPL 2022.
RCB’s fate depends on Mumbai’s game against Delhi
RCB defeated Gujarat Titans by eight wickets to secure 16 points in the league stage of IPL 2022. However, Delhi Capitals are on 14 points with a game in hand. They also have better NRR and hence, if they win the final game against Mumbai Indians, Rishabh Pant and co. will step into the playoffs.
Hence, the RCB supporters have been rallying behind Mumbai Indians to help them by winning their final encounter. Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli have already said that they will be supporting the five-time champions on Saturday. Now, even Dinesh Karthik has joined in the support for MI.
Dinesh Karthik supports Mumbai hilariously
Dinesh Karthik was once part of the Mumbai Indians in IPL. He was procured through a trade deal from the Punjab Kings. DK had a massive role to play in Mumbai winning its first title back in 2013. In that season, Dinesh played 19 games to score 510 runs at an average of 28 and a strike rate of 124. He was one of the main reasons why Mumbai won that season.
Now, ahead of MI’s Saturday night game against DC, the Tamil Nadu man pulled out of one of the old photos of him in a Mumbai Indians jersey. Here is a look at it:

DK has been in fantastic form this season. He has played the “finisher” role to perfection. Going by his current form, it would not be a surprise if the 36-year-old makes a comeback to Team India.
