10th game of IPL 2020 and first one between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Both teams have played two games and won one. Mumbai Indians started the tournament with loss but made a good comeback against Kolkata Knight Riders to easy win.
On the other hand, RCB won their first game and expectations were high from this team against Kings XI Punjab but neither bowlers nor batsmans could deliver.
Mumbai Indians lead Royal Challengers Bangalore by 18-9 in terms of head to head record. In previous few games, RCB has failed against MI. So, today it’s going to be good battle between both sides in Dubai.
Today all eyes will be on Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. In other words, today’s match is between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
For Mumbai Indians, runs from Rohit Sharma’s bat in previous match are good signs for them. Middle-order batsmans Suryakumar Yadav and Saurabh Tiwary are also among runs. Now it would be time for finishers as well to perform as per their standards.
Mumbai Indians fast bowlers are among wickets. James Pattinson and Trent Boult have provided breakthroughs in the powerplay overs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
For RCB, Virat Kohli not scoring runs is little bit-concern for them. Although, many games are left and he could be back in form soon. Today, RCB may change their playing XI. In place of Joshua Philippe, they could go with Moeen Ali and try to fit Chris Morris in team, if he gets fit.
