MI vs RCB: Who will win?

The match that Indian cricket fans were waiting for is right here. The clash between two stalwarts of Indian cricket, Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma. Yes, the blockbuster clash between RCB and MI will take place today in the Dubai Cricket Stadium. Even though they stand on the same points in the points table, both the teams have had a contrasting tournament so far. MI who lost the first match to CSK came back strongly against KKR and have fewer problems to worry about. They have an evenly balanced side. RCB on the other hand robbed off a victory against SRH in the first match and failed miserably in all departments in the second match against KXIP. They have a lot of problems to address ahead of this match and for that reason, MI stands a better chance against this weak RCB side. If you are in for online betting, place your money on MI.

MI VS RCB MATCH PREDICTION

This match between RCB and MI is expected to break all existing IPL viewership records, only due to two names- Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. But despite the popular excitement leading up to this match, this encounter is most likely to be a one-sided affair. Virat Kohli led RCB has already shown their weakness in the last match. Their bowling attack was taken to the cleaners by KL Rahul and co. With MI being a strong and well-balanced batting line-up than RCB, this fate of RCB bowlers is expected to get worsened. Apart from Chahal and Saini(to a certain extend) none of their bowlers may present a great threat to MI batsmen. The current lack of form of senior pacers Dale Steyn and Umesh Yadav is a great worrying sign for the men in red. And hence a possibility of Isuru Udana and Mohammad Siraj replacing them are quite high. With Chris Morris yet to recover from the side strain, Moeen Ali may come in place for young Josh Philippe. Despite the failure in the last match, the batting unit is expected to be retained and the pressure once again falls on the big guns Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers to deliver for the team for this mighty encounter.

On the other side, MI has a strong and well-balanced line-up. They were all over KKR in their last match and no changes are expected in their line-up. Their only possible threat in the opposition in Yuzi Chahal, who has a tremendous record against Rohit and Pollard. If they can negate his four overs with ease, then there is no way they are losing this match.

RCB Playing 11: Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli(c), AB de Villiers (wk), Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Dale Steyn/Isuru Udana, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav/ Mohammad Siraj, Navdeep Saini

MI Playing 11: Quinton de Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma(c), Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, James Pattinson, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

MI vs RCB Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

As of now, a total of four matches have been played in this venue, with captains electing to field first in all four occasions and failing to chase down totals. Hence a change in trend is expected in this match. The pitch and the conditions remain the same, with the added grass providing a little bit of help for seamers early on in the innings. Considering the batting line-up of both the teams, any score below 160 will be easy to chase down.

Predicted Score:

If Mumbai Indians bat first: 170-180

If Royal Challengers Bangalore bat first: 150-160
