Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
Mumbai will fancy their chances of winning this game as they host Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 38th game of Indian Premier League. Kohli and co have not looked great as batting seems way out of sorts as it will take something special to see a tight contest between the two sides. Bangalore has given two back to back woeful batting performances as of now there seems no signs of improvement. Bangalore are on the brink of the being first team to exit the competition as it turned out to be biggest shocker this season given their last year historic feats.
In the initial games they did produce some good games but things have reached lowest ebb in the last few encounters with the side being completely out of form with AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle repeated failures with the bat. Bangalore main concern was their bowling at the start of the season but this time is the ailing batting lineup that failed to produce anything good for the side. The side might recover from this rut as it could be one of the disappointing campaigns for Royal Challengers Bangalore since the inception of Indian Premier League in 2008.
Mumbai are comfortably placed at second just behind Kolkata but tied on 14 points as home side will be keen to put up a strong show with the bat and ball to secure their place in the playoffs as soon as possible in the competition. They will be confident after winning the game in the Super-Over against Gujarat Lions in the last game. Parthiv Patel was star with the bat while Jaspreet Bumrah showed exactly he is the Indian’s designated death overs specialist to keep Gujarat out of the game.
