mi vs rcb Match Prediction & Analysis

IPL is entering the crucial phase with the last 10 league games remaining in the tournament. After 36 days of action, no team is yet to qualify for the play-offs with each team having only around 2-3 matches only remaining. Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore are placed comfortably in the top half of the points table and one win will seal them a spot in the play-offs. The winner of this match not only enters the play-offs officially but also have a huge upper hand in finishing inside the top-2 position in the points table. We expect this match to be a cracking contest with a lot at stake for the two teams playing.  

Teams Preview

Mumbai Indians Preview

MI batting unit scored a massive 196 runs in their 20 overs against RR last night. Ishan Kishan (37 runs), Suryakumar Yadav (40 runs) and Saurabh Tiwary (36 runs) scored vital runs to set the platform for the team. Hardik Pandya took on the bowlers in the final overs as he scored 60 runs to take his team to a massive total.

MI bowlers received a massive beating at the hands of Stokes and Samson last night as they shared an unbeaten 150+ run partnership. James Pattinson took 2 wickets early in the match and no other bowler made his presence felt in the wickets column. Bumrah, Boult and R Chahar were taken for runs at over 9 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Hardik Pandya – Pandya played a crucial knock alst night scoring 60 runs off just 21 balls with 7 sixes and 2 boundaries. His return to form with the bat at the crucial stage will do a world of good for MI`s batting order.

Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah went for 37 runs in his 4 overs and ended up wicket-less in the previous match. He will look to return to his best in this game considering last game as a rare failure.  

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock (wk), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary/Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard (c), Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

RCB batting unit struggled against CSK bowling on a sluggish pitch in their last game. Skipper Virat Kohli (50 runs) and AB De Villiers (39 runs) tried their best in the middle but could not force the pace of the innings. They ended with just 145 runs on board in their 20 overs.

RCB bowlers produced a good effort with the ball but was not enough to stop CSK from chasing down the total. Chris Morris and Yuzi Chahal picked up a wicket each in the match. Moeen Ali played ahead of Isuru Udana in the last match. RCB were 15 runs short last night.

Top players to bet on:

Virat Kohli – Kohli battled hard on the tough pitch to score a fifty in just 41 balls. But, he was dismissed at a crucial moment where he cannot capitalize on his good start for the team.

Yuzi Chahal – Chahal can be arguably the nest spinner in this season`s IPL. He has scalped 16 wickets at an economy rate of less than 7 RPO. We expect him to continue his good form with the ball in this match.  

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing XI:

Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (wk), Moeen Ali, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Chris Morris, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi has a hot and humid weather with the dew expected in the second half of the match.

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi pitch is slowing up and teams will need to be little careful in this pitch before teeing off. Pacer enjoy good seam and swing movement with the new ball here and the pitch might ease out as the match progresses. We expect average scores to be in the range of 160-180 runs here.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have good success in the recent phase with less dew coming into play  so far, we expect both teams to bowl first if they win the toss.   

MI vs RCB Winning Prediction

Both MI & RCB have a well-balanced and complete playing XI which gave them great success this tournament. NI has a slightly stronger lower order and pae bowling department which gives them an edge over the opposition.  RCB will need to use their spin resources to great effect in this match to beat MI effectively. We expect Mumbai Indians to win this match.

MUMBAI INDIANS WILL WIN THE MATCH
