RCB and Mumbai will play their final league game today. Mumbai have qualified for the playoffs but the recent two losses mean that they need to win this game to keep their hopes alive of moving directly into the final. A win for Mumbai Indians will take them to the top of the points table and if DC lose their game, Mumbai will go through the final. Even if Delhi wins, Mumbai will have a chance if they can register a big win.
For RCB, the team has done well to win the last two games but they have been eliminated from the playoff race. However, they would like to end the tournament on a high.
The surface has become slow and thus it has not been easy for the batters to score runs in recent games. A score of 160 can be challenging to chase.
There is 40 per cent rain predicted in Mumbai today. The humidity will be 57 per cent and the temperature will range around the mid 20s.
