After battling it out in the super over in IPL 2020, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians will lock horns for the second time this year. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians are only one victory away from reaching the playoffs and need a few things to come together to bounce back from their losses. It promises to be yet another exciting clash of IPL 2020.
Mumbai Indians’ star-studded bowling line-up fell flat against the brilliance of Ben Stokes in Abu Dhabi as his scintillating hundred gunned down 196 with ease. The batting department has not suffered any capitulations despite the absence of Rohit Sharma; however, he might be missed for his captaincy skills. Being a highly professional side with tailormade T20 players, the defending champions will bounce back.
On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore could not get their tempo up against Chennai Super Kings. However, it was their lack of slower deliveries on a sluggish Dubai track that did not allow them to pick wickets. Navdeep Saini’s absence could prove as a massive blow for the Royal Challengers, who could crank up the pace when required. It will all come down to Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers to shepherd the team successfully.
IPL 2020: Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore: Match Prediction:
Both the sides would feel the motivation to bounce back from comprehensive losses and finally book a playoff spot. While Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers have enormous talent, the former could upstage Virat Kohli’s men this time. If the Royal Challengers are to emerge victorious, one of Kohli or De Villiers have to play crucial roles.
