Mumbai, April 15, Monday at 08:00 PM IST
After securing their first win of the season, the delighted RCB heads towards Mumbai to take on three times title-winners Mumbai Indians in their next fixture. Both the sides will feature at Wankhede Stadium for their second head to head clash of the season. The match will begin at 08:00 PM IST.
While RCB secured their maiden win against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali, Mumbai Indians faced 4 wicket drubbing at the hands of Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday. Now, placed at the bottom, RCB has one win in seven encounters while Mumbai Indians are comfortably sitting at third spot with four wins and three defeat in seven outings.
Both the teams first met at Bengaluru in a high-scoring drama which went down the wire to the final ball. Remember, the last ball bowled by L Malinga which was originally a no-ball but the on-field umpires failed to rectify it, yes it was the same game. RCB lost the game by 6 runs.
Both the teams would be hoping for no more umpiring howlers when they reload at Wankhede Stadium on Monday night.
