Led by captain Rohit Sharma, MI will be keen to put on another strong show against RCB in IPL 2020. Watch RCB vs MI live.
Defending champions Mumbai Indians will back themselves for a good show when they face Royal Challengers Bangalore in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match at the Dubai International Stadium on Monday.
The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians team comes into the tie following a commanding 49-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their previous encounter.
It was a match that saw every department in the Mumbai Indians’ side stand up to the task and deliver some top-quality performances.
The batting was led by their skipper Rohit Sharma, who scored a brilliant 54-ball 80 and was ably supported by Suryakumar Yadav (28-ball 47). It allowed MI to post a daunting 195 in their 20 overs.
Later, the bowlers too were on the money with James Pattinson, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah and Rahul Chahar managing two wickets apiece.
Heading into Monday’s tie, one can expect MI to stick to their tried-and-tested line-up against an RCB team that’s fighting for consistency in the early stages of IPL 2020. Watch RCB vs MI live on TV and on live streaming.
Following their fine win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the campaign opener, Virat Kohli and his boys were in for a reality check when they faced Kings XI Punjab.
Their bowling attack failed to find consistency, something KL Rahul exploited well to record the first century of IPL 2020. The RCB batsmen too didn’t inspire hope with the team being bundled out for a mere 109.
With scores 14 and 1 in the two matches so far, skipper Virat Kohli has struggled for form. Can he find a score next time out?
