The out-of-form Mumbai Indians (MI) will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the MCA Stadium in Pune. RCB had completed a double over the five-time champions last season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
After an initial loss to PBKS, the side have shown a real fight to secure hard-fought wins in succession against KKR and RR. Despite sitting healthy in the points table, for now, there are pressing issues for the team to stress upon.
Death bowling and the performance of the batters at the top have not been up to the mark. A lot of batting responsibility has come down to the likes of Shahbaz Ahmed and the in-form Dinesh Karthik, who seemingly cannot do anything wrong at the moment.
The introduction of Glenn Maxwell, who is available for tonight’s encounter. The RCB batting unit could profit from the MI bowling unit which is struggling at the moment.
Mumbai Indians (MI)
The Rohit Sharma-led side are struggling across all fronts. While they have been on the wrong end of the table on multiple occasions before, this time around, there is a lack of invincibility surrounding the squad after the mega auction.
Bowling has been the prime concern with Bumrah playing the lone front. Batting has been rejuvenated following Suryakumar Yadav’s return and the emergence of Tilak Varma.
Changes could be in the making for MI. Jaydev Unadkat and Fabian Allen are some of the prospects that could make their way into the team for Daniel Sams and Basil Thampi.
WAGING ODDS: RCB (1.87) VS MI (1.90)
