BLR vs MI Dream11 Prediction: Matches are coming thick and fast in IPL now as things move back to Dubai today. Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Mumbai Indians in a crucial encounter for both the sides. Both the teams have had a similar start to the season with a win from their first couple of matches. We will preview RCB vs MI Dream11 contest.
Royal Challengers Bangalore faced a hammering in their last match against Kings XI Punjab. All the bowlers went for the journey against an in-form KL Rahul. Lack of wicket-taking ability hurt RCB badly that night. Only Shivam Dube and Yuzvendra Chahal were able to provide breakthroughs as KXIP posted a massive 206 on the board. In reply, RCB got off to a worst possible start as they lost 3 wickets for just 4 runs including one of Virat Kohli. Only AB de Villiers and Washington Sundar put on some resistance but RCB were bowled out for just 109 runs.
After a disappointing start to the season, Mumbai Indians came back strongly against Kolkata Knight Riders in the second match. Batting first, Rohit Sharma dominated the proceedings with a magnificent 80 from just 54 balls. Suryakumar Yadav played second fiddle brilliantly as MI made 195 runs from their 20 overs. In reply, bowlers were outstanding and never gave a chance to powerful KKR batting lineup to make a match out of that contest. Trent Boult, James Pattinson, Jasprit Bumrah and Rahul Chahar picked up a couple each as Mumbai Indians registered a win by 49 runs.
In head-to-head comparisons, Mumbai Indians have enjoyed an upper hand consistently against Royal Challengers Bangalore over the years. MI have won 18 matches while RCB had 9 games going their way in 27 matches played between both the sides. The same processions continued in last 5 matches as MI have been dominant with 4 wins. They will meet for the second time at this venue. In the first match, Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 7 wickets in a low-scoring tie.
This match will be played on a fresh pitch at Dubai. One can expect similar behavior from this one as well. The pitches here have become slower as we moved deep into the match with some uneven bounce. Teams should be batting first from now on as stroke-play has become difficult in the second innings even with the dew. The weather will remain clear as usual here.
