Currently, Royal Challengers Bangalore are at the third position on the points table on the back of five wins and four losses this season. Defending champions Indians, on the other hand, have slipped to the sixth position after losing five out of their nine matches played so far.
A common element between both the teams is that they have lost their first two matches of the UAE leg. While one out of RCB and MI will return to winning ways after this match, things will start to get more difficult for the team on the losing side.
