Two teams that did not have the perfect start to their Vivo Indian Premier League 2019 campaign will have another go to finally open their account. Mumbai Indians travel down south to face Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru on Thursday, March 28.
Coming on the back after defeats series, both teams Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will look to get their win charm back together and get their first win of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 season at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Thursday.
Virat Kohli’s team RCB, who are yet to win the title IPL league and regularly draw a lot of flak for that, was also bundled out for just 70 runs, the sixth-lowest score total in IPL league history, in their very first game of the this year’s league against Chennai Super Kings.
RCB lost the match by a huge gap of seven wickets after their bowlers performed well to try and make up a semblance of a fight but it was never so easy with such a small total on the board.
Coming to the fans, Mumbai Indian Team were blown away by a Rishabh Pant batting in their opening encounter. The dashing batsman smashed an unbeaten 27-ball 78 runs taking the Mumbai bowlers harsh, including Indian teammate Jasprit Bumrah, for a long ride.
Skipper Rohit Sharma would wish his bowlers to get their house in order back ahead of the RCB match and treat the poor show against Delhi as a one-off. Mumbai’s batting, except veteran Yuvraj Singh (53), looked ordinary too.
Talking of all aspects, the battle between Virat Kohli and Jaspreet Bumrah would be a special one to watch out for fun, with both of the players being at the best of their abilities in recent matches.
Both Teams RCB and MI will be going into this match all guns blazing and after what has been a disappointing beginning, both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will be eager to put the team back on track for the IPL 2019 trophy. Let’s take a look at the two teams before we make our match predictions for Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians IPL 2019 match:

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians IPL 2019: Who will be going to win RCB vs MI IPL T20 match?
Both teams have what it takes to be the best team of the Vivo IPL 2019 but just doesn’t seem to click as of now. A lot of onus will be on the two superstar captains but overall, RCB could have the last laugh considering home advantage and the way with which they lost the last game. RCB needs a reaction after a defeat like that and we feel the Royal Challengers will be more motivated.
