RCB vs MI DREAM11 GRAND LEAGUE TEAM | Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians IPL 2019

RCB vs MI 7th Match DREAM11 GRAND LEAGUE TEAM | RCB vs MI | Indian Premier League 2019

Bangalore, March 27, Tuesday at 08:00 PM IST

So, it's time for Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma in the IPL 2019. Both the sides, Royal Challengers Banglore and Mumbai Indians will be face to face against each other at the  M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru on Thursday evening. The two teams have faced defeats in their opening fixture and would be desperate to open their account in tomorrow's clash. The match will begin at 08:00 PM IST in the evening.

Disappointing start for both the teams

Royal Challengers Bangalore faced 7 wicket drubbing at the hands of defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the tournament opener at M Chidambaram in Chennai while Mumbai Indians fell short by 37 runs while chasing a mammoth target of 213 runs at their home ground in Wankhede.

In head to head battle, Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians have an upper hand over Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore. Be it their home ground- M Chinnaswamy or any other venue, Mumbai Indians have outplayed Bangalore for most of the times. At M Chinnaswamy, MI has clinched victories in 6 out of 9 games. However, they should avoid being complacent and should not take the hosts lightly.  With AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Shimron Hetmyer in the batting line-up and Umesh Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal in the bowling ranks, RCB looks quite balanced this time.

Moreover, the time will tell who takes an edge this time to open their account on Thursday evening. Till then, let's have a quick glance at team news and grand league teams.

Pitch report & Venue Stats:

M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore is heaven for batters. The boundaries are really small and many record chases have been witnessed at this venue. Rohit Sharma scored his first ODI double hundred on this ground and with plenty of big hitters on each side, tomorrow's clash is expected to be a high scoring thriller. Also, the chasing side has a more winning percentage at this ground.

RCB vs MI Team News:

  • Bumrah picked up a shoulder injury in the first clash against Delhi Capitals
  • Although he appeared in practice sessions but didn't bowl in the nets

This RCB vs MI Dream11 prediction is high-risk but you may reap rewards if some assumptions come off. We advise you not to use these teams in small league contests.


Team 1 & 2: The home advantage for RCB

Although RCB has a poor record against Mumbai Indians at their backyard- M Chinnaswamy, the team has enough firepower to bounce back. AB de Villiers, S Hetmyer, V Kohli are the power-hitters in the side while Umesh Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will be the key in bowling. Umesh Yadav was the best bowler for powerplays in the last edition.

Captain & Vice-captain – Shimron Hetmyer, Umesh Yadav, Moen Ali & Yuzvendra Chahal

Note: V Kohli & AB de Villiers will be in most of the teams so there's no point making them captain & vice-captain.

Team 3 & 4: High-scoring encounter

Short boundaries make M Chinnaswamy a batting paradise. With plenty of power-hitters on both the sides, there's no doubt it will be a high-scoring encounter

Captain & Vice-captain – Q de Kock, Shimron Hetmyer, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya

Team 5 & 6: If pitch turns out to be a slow track

In last few seasons, the M Chinnaswamy in Bangalore has turned out to be much slower rather than being the traditional high-scoring venue.  If it turns out to be the same on Thursday, spinners and all-rounders can become the match-winner.

Captain & vice-captain – Shivam Dubey, Krunal Pandya, M Markande
