The 5-time IPL winners MI are all set to lock horns with RCB on 2nd April at M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Skipper Rohit Sharma would be keen to make a statement that he is not done yet in the shortest format. Rohit Sharma had a scratchy IPL 2022 where he scored 268 runs in 14 matches.
RCB don’t have a great track record at their home ground. All eyes would be on Virat Kohli as the batter has had a terrific last 6 months & has dominated the terms. The all-rounder Michael Bracewell could be the ‘X’ factor for RCB where he has shown sheer hitting ability & can be used as a floater.
