BLR vs MI Dream11 Prediction: Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma; Team India’s Captain vs Vice-Captain; 2019 Wooden-Spoon Winning Captain vs 2019 Winning Captain – Yes, its that time in Indian Premier League (IPL) – Its Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians time! These are the matches that make IPL the best and most exciting league in the world. Both teams have won one and lost one so far in the season but the mood in the two camps is completely different. Mumbai came back in style after their loss in the tournament opener against SRH and thrashed rivals Kolkata Knight Riders showing why they have won the tournament more than any other side. While RCB, after their good win against Sunrisers Hyderabad, had a horrible outing against Kings XI Punjab showing why they have never won an IPL title. Knowing Virat and Rohit, they would be desperate to score a win over each-other and would go to any extent, meaning we are in for a great game.
Indian Premier League Season 13
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians
Date – Monday, 28th September 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: We have had 4 matches in Dubai so far and the first innings scores have been 157/8, 163/5, 206/3 and 175/3. Another important aspect is that the team that batted first won all four contests. This means that the pitch slows up a bit in the second innings. However, all these stats go for a toss when we have players like Kohli and Rohit (among many others) fighting for a win.
Team News RCB: Chris Morris missed the opening two matches because of an injury and RCB would be hoping he regains his 100% fitness for this match as both Dale Steyn and Umesh Yadav have been ordinary at times, leaking too many runs for Virat's liking. Another concern for them is the form of foreign wicket-keeper batsman Josh Philippe. He may lose his place in RCB vs MI Dream11 Prediction.
Team News MI: Mumbai Indians played a perfect game in the win against KKR and are expected to play the same 11. It seemed they had all bases covered meaning they will give an extended run to James Pattinson and would allow some more recovery time for Nathan Coulter-Nile.

Virat Kohli: Kohli faced severe criticism for his Batting-Fielding-Captaincy in the loss against KXIP and that’s exactly the reason why we think he will be a brilliant option for captain. He is a fierce competitor and he will be desperate to answer his critics with his bat. Watch out for Captain Kohli!
Rohit Sharma: Watching Rohit Sharma bat is one of the reasons we love IPL. He was breathtaking against KKR, especially the Sixes he hit against Pat Cummins. His innings of 80 set the game for MI and he will be a threat for RCB bowlers.
Batting: 4990 Runs
Strike Rate: 131
AB de Villiers: De Villiers has looked good in both the matches (51 and 28) and would be looking to build on that. He is one of the all-time greats and RCB need the absolute best from him if they seriously want to beat heavyweights MI in BLR vs MI Today Match Prediction.
Batting: 4474 Runs
Strike Rate: 151
Jasprit Bumrah: Barring the 4 Sixes Cummins hit in the Bumrah over, the lead striker for MI was highly impressive. He had a poor outing against CSK but was at his best against KKR. Bumrah is a wicket-taker both with the new and the old ball. Also, watch out Aaron Finch!
Aaron Finch: Yes, he needs to keep a lookout for Bumrah and go hard at the other bowlers. The Australian opener has scores of 29 and 20 but he hasn’t been at his fluent best. RCB need a big effort from him to post a total to beat MI.
Batting: 1786 Runs
Strike Rate: 129
Quinton de Kock: The South African smasher will be itching to have a go against RCB’s bowlers after his failure (1) against KKR. He likes playing his shots against pace in the power-play and RCB may have the best bowlers for him to target.
Batting: 1490 Runs
Strike Rate: 131
Dream11 Most Affordable Players
Washington Sundar (Credits 8): It seems Kohli is under-bowling Sundar as he has only bowled 3 overs in two matches even though he has been economical. But pacers going for a lot of runs in their last match could mean more bowling opportunity to Sundar.
Saurabh Tiwary (Credits 8): It was surprising to see Tiwary walk out to bat at No. 4 against CSK but it must be admitted that he has been a pleasant surprise for Mumbai Fans. With fluent innings of 42 and 21 he has really been good.
