RCB vs MI Match Preview, Predication XI , Captain Vs Vice-captain
Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians and Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore will go head to head tonight as we start off another week of the Dream 11 IPL.
TOUGH CALLS FOR RCB
Steyn Gun Isn’t Firing
In the absence of Chris Morris, Dale Steyn has been entrusted with the death overs but Steynhas not come to grasp with it. His 4 overs in the last game cost 57 runs, majority of them in thedeath. Moreover, he has been ineffective with the new ball too, making his place in the side questionable.
Who is Isuru Udana?
The 32 year old left arm Sri Lankan pacer has played 29 T20Is, and has taken 24 wickets. But more importantly, he’s a death bowler and is widely recognised for his yorkers and slower deliveries. Should he replace Dale Steyn, it will be his maiden IPL game and whether or not he can give some glimmer of hope to the RCB camp as regards their death bowling will be interesting to see.
ABD gets yet another responsibility!
MI has Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya, a leg spinner and a left arm spinner, so the temptation to play Moeen Ali is definitely there. The only possible way that Moeen gets a game is by benching Josh Philippe, the wicket keeper. Mr. 360 was seen practising wicket keeping on the eve of the game so there’s a high chance that he dons the gloves tonight.
MUMBAI’S RECORD AGAINST RCB
Mumbai has won the last 7 of the 8 matches against RCB which will give them a serious edge going into this match. One Fails, The Other Steps Up Hardik Pandya not bowling somehow doesn’t seem to bother MI too much because Pollard took
the 6th bowler responsibility in their last game against RCB. He bowled 3 overs, giving just 21 runs and taking one wicket. If Hardik Pandya returns to bowling duties, it will give captain Rohit a good 7 bowling options to work with.
Krunal vs Abd
In the 43 balls that Abd has faxed of Krunal, he has managed to score just 43 runs at a strike rate of 100 and has been dismissed 4 times. The South African legend will like to make amends to this record of his against the left armer.
What Can Trouble Mumbai?
Should Moeen Ali play and Shivam Dube find his batting form, the 4 overs each of Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya becomes an uncertainty. The 6th bowler may come into the equation and RCB will look to go all hells down.
