Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Playerzpot Prediction IPL Preview, Team News, Playing 11


Royal Challengers Bangalore finally won one game after six consecutive losses and that must have come as a morale-booster for them.  Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, are returning off a loss against Rajasthan Royals and they would be aiming to claw back to winning ways when they host the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Wankhede.

RCB is primarily dependent on Kohli and AB de Villiers and both of them would be keen to create an impact in Wankhede. Although RCB won their last match against KXIP, they are still languishing at the bottom of the points table and they need to win all the matches from here to keep their hopes of reaching to the playoffs alive.   Mumbai Indians have pulled this Houdini act before and moving forward, RCB can take some inspiration from their opponents.

We love playing in Wankhede: AB de Villiers

We understand that we need to win all our games from here. We play next in Wankhede, we love playing there.

Match Details

When: 15 April 2019, 08:00 pm IST
