Three-time finalists, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) on Tuesday (1st) in the 31st match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is having a bad IPL campaign as they have managed to win only 2 games out of 7 so far. RCB is yet to find a right combination as their bowling department is failing again and again. Also, their key player AB De Villiers missed the last match due to illness. It will be interesting to see if ABD makes it into playing XI or not.
The biggest concern for RCB right now is finding the correct combination, especially identifying those bowlers who could bowl at the death.
On the other hand, MI is confident as they are coming after a victory over table topper Chennai Super Kings (CSK). MI will look to continue on winning track to climb up the points table.
MI made some bold calls with their team selections in the last game, leaving out Keiron Pollard and Mustafizur Rehman.
Both teams are languishing at the bottom of the table and will be striving hard for a win tonight.
According to Accu Weather, there is no forecast of Rain, which is good news for both the teams. The temperature will increase during the day but it will go down after the sunset. During the game, the temperature is expecting to hover 25 degrees Celsius and 29 degrees Celsius.
MI 14 – RCB 8. MI has slightly dominated the clash between both the teams with 14 wins while RCB with only 8.
