RCB vs MI Key Players
With Kieron Pollard released and now coaching, Mumbai Indians place a lot of trust on Tim David as they look at him as a potential finisher in the coming years. He has done the job at the back-end on countless occasions in other leagues, and also did a good job last season, which makes him a nice option for the finishers role.
Virat Kohli is back to his old form now and could be a lot more threatening this season as he is back to his fluent self. The runs seem to be coming a lot easier and RCB will be banking on him heavily once again.
