RCB vs MI Dream11 Prediction

Indian Premier League, 2019 | Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians, 07th Match | RCB vs MI Who Will Win

Two teams who didn’t have a great start to their IPL 2019 campaign will square-off against each other at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. A win here for either side will be their first of this season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB had a horrific start to their campaign against CSK where they were bundled out for a mere 70 in the tournament opener. A turning track at the MA Chidambaram stadium saw Imran Tahir and Harbhajan Singh running havoc on RCB’s star-studded line-up.

Both veterans scalped 6 wickets between them which broke the backbone of RCB’s batting unit. Once skipper Virat Kohli got out cheaply there was no resilience shown from the other batsmen and they kept perishing.

After the debacle, RCB will look to start fresh at their home and register a win to get going on the points table.

Mumbai Indians

2012 was the last time when the Mumbai Indians registered a win in their opening encounter of an IPL edition. It has been 7 long years since then and they still are eyeing a winning start.

Delhi Capitals were the newest to route Mumbai Indians at the start of this season and it was their third straight win over the three-time champions across editions.

They have the reputation of slow starters but they definitely know how to end up winning trophies. Be it home or away, they know how to make things count. Can this be the knight for the three-time champions? We will have to wait and see if it is.

RCB vs MI Playing 11 (Probable)

Here’s how both teams might line-up:-

Royal Challengers Bangalore

AB de Villiers, Navdeep Saini, Shimron Hetmyer, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shivam Dube, Virat Kohli, Parthiv Patel, Umesh Yadav, Moeen Ali, Colin de Grandhomme.

Mumbai Indians

Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya, Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Mitchell McClenaghan, Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, M Markande, Krunal Pandya, Lasith Malinga, Quinton de Kock.

RCB vs MI Dream11 Teams

Players to watch out RCB:

RCB’s batting line-up did not had a great show in the opening game as they succumbed to just 70 runs on the board. They have one of the most lethal batting trios in the tournament. With Ab de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer and skipper Virat Kohli at their helm, they can easily overpower any bowling unit around the globe.

In the bowling department, the onus would be on Yuzvendra Chahal who is their premier spinner, Umesh Yadav and the all-rounder Shivam Dube will be crucial.

Players to watch out Mumbai Indians:

Skipper Rohit Sharma is going through a rough patch, he needs to fire to enlighten Mumbai Indians camp. Quinton de Kock has been in exceptional touch and will be the one to watch out.

Kieron Pollard and Yuvraj Singh looked good in the last encounter so did Mitchell McClenaghan who picked two wickets. Jasprit Bumrah has been doing all the fielding and bowling drills in the nets and looks certain to feature.
