MI vs BLR Dream11 Prediction: In a clash of teams from upper half of the table, Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be up against each other. Both these teams have given us many humdingers in the past and none more than the first fixture this year when the match went into a super over. Fans would be hoping for another one of those crackerjacks at Abu Dhabi today as both will be looking to seal their places for the play-offs. We will preview MI vs BLR Dream11 contest.
Mumbai Indians were at receiving end of a run-feast in their last match against Rajasthan Royals on Sunday. Batting first, they lost in-form Quinton de Kock in the first over but Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav took forward the innings at a decent pace. MI lost 3 wickets quickly then after. Hardik Pandya took the center-stage in last 5 overs with his blazing 60 from just 21 balls. MI piled on 195 runs thanks to that late onslaught from Hardik Pandya. In reply, Rajasthan Royals made the light work of that huge score with Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson playing major parts for them. MI were able to pick up only 2 wickets and both of them went to James Pattinson.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are also coming off from a surprise loss against Chennai Super Kings in their last match. RCB batsmen were never able to get their timings right on a sluggish pitch. As a result, they failed to judge the right score on that pitch and ended up posting 145 runs from 20 overs. Virat Kohli top scored for them with his 50 while AB de Villiers made 39. In reply, only Chris Morris and Yuzvendra Chahal had some success to show against their names as CSK chased down the score rather easily with contributions from Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ambati Rayudu.
In head-to-head comparisons, Mumbai Indians have fared better historically against Royal Challengers Bangalore. MI have won 18 matches while 10 matches have gone RCB’s way. In last 5 matches, Mumbai are having a lead of 3-2 over RCB. First match this year between these two sides went to a super over where RCB beat MI with the help of brilliance from Navdeep Saini with the ball.
Pitch and Conditions
