Bangalore, March 28, Thursday at 08:00 PM IST
Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be looking to open their account in Vivo IPL 2019 when both the teams will come face to face at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Both the sides had a disappointing start of the season and had to face defeat in the opening fixture. While RCB faced 7 wickets drubbing at hands of CSK, MI succumbed to 37 runs loss against DC in Wankhede. The match will begin at 08:00 PM IST
Both the sides are bolstered with a number of power hitters in their respective squads. While Royal Challengers Bangalore have King Kohli, Mr360 Ab de Villiers and Shimron Hetmyer, Mumbai Indians have Q de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Yuvraj Singh in their ranks. Yuvraj Singh smashed a fifty in the first game and looked quite comfortable, leaving behind a few miss hits. So, a cracking high-scoring thriller is expected tomorrow in Chinnaswamy.
If we look towards the head to head battle, Mumbai Indians have won more games than the Challengers. Also, the visiting side has a bigger percentage of winning at M Chinnaswamy. So, it will be interesting to watch if Royal Challengers Bangalore manages to fancy the home conditions or will have to wait for another encounter to open their account.
