RCB Vs MI: MI is not new to seeing rocky starts. They went winless in their first three games four times and on two occasions MI made strong comebacks. Their previous seasons will give them confidence as they know that they can fight back and be as dangerous as anyone going forward.
RCB are doing well and will be really pleased with their batting depth. Five down with a fair way to go, Dinesh Karthik and Shahbaz Ahmed steered the chase brilliantly to win with ease. They have an incredible batting line-up and Dinesh Karthik has been in really good form as a finisher. The batting line-up will now be bolstered as Glenn Maxwell joins the side, giving the team more depth.

MI Playing XI
Rohit Sharma (capt), Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Tim David/Dewald Brevis, Kieron Pollard, Fabien Allen/Daniel Sams, M Ashwin, Tymal Mills, Jasprit Bumrah, Basil Thampi/Jaydev Unadkat
- MI may bring in someone else for Daniel Sams as Sams has been on the expensive side through the season.
- RCB will bring in Glenn Maxwell for Romario Shepherd and will have a really deep battling line-up with Hasranga down at nine.
Brevis came into the tournament with the tag of baby AB on him. In his first game, Brevis played a handy knock to show some of his skills. He brought out some interesting shots and does look like a promising player if given a decent rope in the side.
Dinesh Karthik seems to be trying for the World Cup again as he is in some excellent form. He is finishing games as easily as ever and has steered RCB home in two games already. Dinesh Karthik is finding boundaries with ease and his chase against Rajasthan was a masterclass as he showed how he could finish games.
RCB Vs MI Match Tips
RCB are doing well but MI are a dangerous side and the likes of Bumrah are known to have a good record against some of RCB’s batters. Despite the situation, a Mumbai fightback is never off the charts and they may hold a slight edge coming into the game.
Match Prediction: MI will win the match.
