Down with the burden of expectations and dejection, Royal Challengers Bangalore will face off refreshed Mumbai Indians in the upcoming clash within 48 hours of their last loss. The second clash between RCB and MI is scheduled to take place at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore on 1st May 2018. The clash begins at 08:00 PM Local.
In their first encounter of the season at Wankhede, MI won by 46 after posting 214 runs target. credit skipper Rohit’s 52-ball 94 knock. Interestingly, MI has registered two wins so far and in both games, Hitman has played skipper’s knock.
On the opposite, nothing is working out for Virat Kohli’s RCB. The bowlers are giving away too many runs and not picking up the wickets while the fielders are showing way too ordinary performances on the field.
So, let’s move forwards to RCB vs MI team news and RCB vs MI dream11 prediction.
RCB- L, L, W, L, L
MI- L, W, L, L, W
Nothing is working out for RCB. Despite making a few changes in the last game, they lost to KKR by 6 wickets. AB de Villiers might return to playing 11. He missed the last game due to viral fever. Chris Woakes can be called back in place of Colin de Grandhomme or Tim Southee. B McCullum played a handy knock of 28-ball 38 and is expected to retain his place. However, nothing concrete can be said. Management is not getting the desired result even after making so many changes and hence they might try to build new combinations. Place of Manan Vohra and M Ashwin is also not sure.
Mumbai Indians are expected to field the same playing 11. They comfortably won the last game against CSK and there is no reason for the management to tinker the winning combination.
