BLR vs MI Dream11 Prediction: V Kohli and R Sharma, two of the Indian white-ball giants will face off each other in the 10th league match of IPL 2020. Both teams have won and lost one match each so far this season. Mumbai Indians have a dominant head-to-head record against Royal Challengers Bangalore with 18 wins from 27 encounters.
Royal Challengers Bangalore's bowling attack was found out against a rampant KL Rahul in their last match against Kings XI Punjab. Their Powerplay specialists, Umesh Yadav and D Steyn have failed to either pick wickets or control the runs and their middle-order batting lacks clarity. There's still no news on the fitness of Morris, who can strengthen both their bowling and the lower middle order. M Siraj should replace U Yadav and there's an outside chance of I Udana coming in for D Steyn and M Ali for J Phillipe.
Mumbai Indians followed their traditional process of losing the first match but won their next encounter against KKR with a dominating effort from Rohit and Bumrah with bat and ball. Their two overseas bowlers Boult and Pattinson have been impressive so far and their batting has been bolstered with the presence of S Tiwary who was a surprise selection coming into this season. They're unlikely to change the winning combination.
The decks in Dubai have been on the slower side so far with par score at 160s. The boundaries are large at all parts of the ground and should assist the spinners and the hit the deck pacers. Dew is expected with high humidity levels.
RCB vs MI Dream 11 Prediction
Possible BLR Dream11 Playing 11 –
RCB Playing 11 (probable)
V Kohli (C)
AB De Villiers (WK)
Let’s take a look at some best picks for RCB vs MI Dream11 Prediction
V Kohli – The Indian captain hasn't had the best of starts this season and would like to change it against the Mumbai Indians. The large boundaries should help his accumulation skills.
N Saini – Saini can trouble the MI middle order with his hit the deck type of bowling. K Pandya and K Pollard are great match-ups for him.
AB De Villiers – The 360-degree batsman loves facing pace and Mumbai Indians have got a load off it. His career IPL record against the successful franchise in IPL is outstanding with 656 runs at an average of 43.73 with a strike-rate of 142.30. But he's got a couple of threats in Krunal Pandya who has the wood over him with picking his wicket for 5 times and R Chahar, the leg-spinner.
Y Chahal – He has been in terrific form this season and would love the ground dimensions in Dubai. He has got 16 wickets from 11 matches against Mumbai Indians so far.
Possible MI Dream11 Playing 11 –
RCB Playing 11 (probable)
R Sharma (C)
Q De Kock (WK)
Let’s take a look at some best picks for BLR vs MI Dream11 Today Match Prediction
Q De Kock – He hasn't been at his best so far this season and RCB with their misfiring PowerPlay bowlers can serve as fodder for the Proteas wicketkeeper.
Rohit Sharma – He played a captain’s knock in the last match cracking a 54 ball 80 against KKR. His record against RCB looks good too with 689 runs from 26 matches.
R Chahar – RCB’s struggles against leg-spin are well known and R Chahar gets the added advantage with the larger boundaries at Dubai. If he can crack open the RCB lineup in the middle—overs, we’re in for a fantasy treat.
K Pollard – He has been silent with the bat so far this season but against RCB he has a familiar opponent and an attack best suited to his modus operandi. With Hardik not bowling, he will get a couple of overs.
Team Composition Preferences –
1). All Rounders – Get more all-rounders from the Mumbai Indians side than the Royal Challengers Bangalore team.
2). Batsman – We’re spoilt for choices in this area with quality batters in AB De Villiers, Rohit, Kohli and many others. Pick all if you want to be safe but if you want to go aggressive and take some risks you can drop one of the heavyweights in Kohli, ABD and Rohit.
3). Bowlers – Give more preference to fast bowlers who bowl at the death.
4). Wicket-Keeper – Even if Phillippe plays today, the chances of him getting substantial points than Q De Kock are less.
Having more MI players in the BLR vs MI Dream11 Match Prediction team is preferable.
Captaincy Picks –
Going with one of the top batters as your captain is ideal. V Kohli is more likely to succeed as he has failed in the last two games and would be backing himself to score a big one. With regards to all-rounders, Hardik not bowling goes against him, but M Ali or K Pollard won’t be a bad choice either.
Differential Picks –
S Tiwary – Ever since he replaced I Kishan in the MI batting order, he has been providing some valuable contributions with the bat with 79 Dream11 points so far.
K Pandya– He has a great head-to-head record against AB De Villiers dismissing him 4 times so far in the IPL. He has a great chance of completing his 4 overs today.
