Mumbai Indians are set to take on Delhi Capitals today in an ‘all to play for’ match. Royal Challengers Bangalore’s playoff hopes are rested on the hands of Rohit Sharma and Mumbai Indians.
The equation is simple, if Delhi Capitals win, they’ll qualify for the playoffs of this season’s TATA IPL. But if Mumbai Indians win, they’ll make sure that Royal Challengers Bangalore led by Faf Du Plessis goes through to the playoffs. So RCB have thrown their full support behind the Rohit Sharma-led five-time IPL winners who are languishing at the bottom of the standings after a horror of a season.
On Saturday morning, Dinesh Karthik shared an old image of his in MI jersey from the time when he represented the franchise for two seasons. The photo was him celebrating with the bat in his hand. He captioned the photo by saying “Found this in archives”. This was a slight reflection of what the RCB players and RCB fans are hoping for tonight.

Dinesh Karthik played for MI in IPL 2012 and 2013
Dinesh Karthik has played for Mumbai Indians and had been a decent buy for the franchise since he was good wicketkeeper batsman. The wicketkeeper-batter represented MI in IPL 2012 and scored 238 runs for them. The following season was quite productive for the him as he went on to amass 510 runs in it as MI won the title – Karthik’s only IPL title to date.
Dinesh Karthik has represented both the franchises but Karthik is rooting for the blue franchise that he had represented in 2012 and 2013. Only time will tell which franchise will play in the playoffs and face Lucknow Super Giants on Wednesday, 25th May.
