MI vs RCB 2021 Dream11: Mumbai Indians Playing 11, Royal Challengers Bangalore Playing 11 For IPL 2021


MI vs RCB 2021 Dream11: Cricket’s biggest show on earth in the shape of IPL 2021 is set to kick-off on April 9 when Mumbai Indians (MI) start the defence of their title against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Friday, April 9.
While Rohit Sharma’s MI are gunning for an unprecedented three-peat in the IPL this season having won back-to-back titles in 2019 and 2020, debunking their odd-year theory in the process, other teams have gained significant ground on them by bolstering their roster, with RCB one of them. Kohli has his hands full of options as box office and showstopper Glenn Maxwell, together with New Zealander Kyle Jamieson were bought in the IPL 2021 auction.

In addition, star bowler Jasprit Bumrah has completed his quarantine and will be available for selection.
