RCB vs MI Playerzpot Prediction IPL Preview, Team News, Playing 11

The cricket extravaganza of the Indian Premier League is all set to roll its carpet in the home ground of the Royal Challengers Bangalore for the next header on Thursday. Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore will be taking on Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians in M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Both the teams are coming off a defeat in their first encounters and they would look forward to turning the tables when they meet each other. Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a nightmare against Chennai Super Kings when the whole team got bundled out for 70 runs. However, Kohli would like to relish the fact that the bowlers of his team held their nerves to defend a below-par total until the end.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians were hammered by the blitzkriegs of Rishabh Pant as the team lost by 37-runs. The team also failed to make a statement with the bat with Yuvraj Singh being an exception. Yuvraj Singh scored 53 runs off 35 balls, but his efforts went in vain as the team ended up losing the game. Both the teams will aim to register wins in this encounter for gaining their respective wins in the tournament.

It is good to get a game like this out of the way- Kohli

“No one wants to start like this, but it's good to get a game like this out of the way – this early in the tournament,” Kohli said.

Rishabh took the game away from us- Rohit Sharma

First game is always challenging for most of the teams. We made a few mistakes today and we will look forward to put things together in the next match. We were in the game in the first 10 overs while bowling but the way Rishabh batted, we have to give the credit to him,” Rohit Sharma said after the loss.

Fantasy Picks Mumbai Indians

  • Skipper Rohit failed to fire with the bat in the last match but he is one of the most consistent players of the side. You can pick him in your fantasy team as he might help you win big.
  • Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya are also safe fantasy pick as both the players hold the potential to turn the match in their favour.

Fantasy Picks Royal Challengers Bangalore

  • Skipper Kohli had a bad outing against Chennai Super Kings but his power hitting capabilities can never be underestimated. He along with AB de Villiers are safe fantasy picks.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohammed Siraj had an impressive bowling economy in the last match. Apart from these two, England all-rounder, Moeen Ali can also be considered a good fantasy pick for the side.
