The seventh game of the Indian Premier League will see a game being played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indian on Thursday.
Royal Challengers Bangalore had arguably the worst possible start a team can have in their first game of the IPL. They got bowled out for 70 runs and struggled to forth a fight at all. Virat Kohli would be fuming at the way the team looked hapless and some drastic actions are expected to be taken from the management in order to prevent the same from happening. This franchise has always got glamour attached to it, and now is the time to live up to the expectations as they take the field in front of the home fans.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians too are coming off a loss but their defeat was still a relatively close one. They have lost the first game of the season for the last seven years in a row, and the coaches were hoping to have a different outcome this time out. Already the squad has seen some injuries take place, and the team deployed isn’t exactly their first choice. But, if anyone can turn their season around, it will be Mumbai Indians, who have a knack of striking back hard after getting their combination absolutely spot on.
