RCB vs MI Prediction & Bettting Tips, IPL 2020

Royal Challengers Bangalore were annihilated by Kings XI Punjab in their last game. That has been the story of Virat Kohli’s team in almost every season. They haven’t been able to deliver back to back performance which has been the biggest cause of their miserable record in the IPL. RCB fans will be hoping that their performance against Punjab was a one off affair and they will bounce back strongly in their next game. However, they’re up against the four time IPL champions, Mumbai Indians and beating them won’t be that easy. 

Mumbai Indians showed why they’re one of the best team of the tournament after they blew Kolkata Knight Riders away in their previous game. Rohit Sharma is back in form, Surya Kumar Yadav too played a handy knock in the previous game and we all know what Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya can do when in full flow. In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah and James Pattinson silenced their critics with brilliant performance. They along with Trent Boult are enough to send chills down the spine of any batting line-up. RCB batsmen will find it very difficult against this Mumbai attack. On paper, they have an equally good batting line up as Mumbai Indians but somehow, they fail to live up to the expectations in the match. RCB need to be at their best if they’re to challenge Mumbai Indians who are big favourites to the match.

Toss Prediction

You can’t predict the toss but team winning the toss will most probably bat first due to the slow nature of the pitch. Chasing hasn’t been that easy on this ground.

Weather Report

The weather at Dubai is expected to make the players sweat with temperatures touching 37 degree Celsius.

Pitch Condition

The pitch at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, has been little on the slower side. It’s not a wicket that you can play your shots from ball one. You need to settle in a bit before looking for scoring opportunities. The pitch gets even slower in the second innings, favouring the spinners and making it difficult for the opposition to chase

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

RCB’s loss against King XI Punjab have a lot to show about how underprepared team Bangalore is. Virat Kohli hasn’t delivered as of yet, so as Aaron Finch. AB de Villiers helped them to win a match against SRH but you can’t expect him to deliver in every game. Josh Philippe too came in with big reputation but hasn’t lived up to the expectation; Dale Steyn is not the same bowler he used to be and Umesh Yadav is once again proving to be expensive for them Seriously, RCB has big issues to deal with. The only bright prospect for RCB as of now is the form of Yuzvendra Chahal, who’s been outstanding as ever. RCB need to find the right combination against Mumbai Indians.  The pitch at Dubai will favour the spinners which might force Kohli to bring in Moeen Ali in place of Josh Phillippe.  Devidutt Padikkal also might miss out on the next game to make way for Parthiv Patel. Mohammed Siraj can also be expected to make an entry into the playing XI at the cost of Umesh Yadav. We have no news on Chris Morris as of yet but if he’s fit enough to play he might also feature in place of Dale Steyn.

RCB Key Players

  • AB de Villiers – AB de Villiers is the only player in the RCB camp that has performed well in both the matches RCB has played. He started to tournament with a brutal half century and also looked good against Punjab. He is an integral part of this RCB set up and will hold the key of RCB’s fate in the tournament.
  • Virat Kohli - Virat Kohli hasn’t fired as of yet but he’s a class act and will be eager to get back among the runs. Rarely, Kohli hasn’t scored runs in three consecutive matches and is expected to be at his very best against Mumbai. 
  • Yuzvendra Chahal – Yuzvendra Chahal will be trump card for RCB against Mumbai Indians. The pitch is expected to aid the spinners and Chahal, the class player he is, won’t let the opportunity slip through his hands.

Mumbai Indians Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Mumbai Indians after starting the IPL 2020 with a loss bounced back in style to beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 49 runs. Rohit Sharma led from the front and smashed a brilliant 80. He’ll be looking to go a step further and touch the three figure mark. Surya Kumar Yadav too has looked good in the two matches. Saurabh Tiwari has been fine in the two matches but might be replaced by Ishan Kishan. The duo of Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard hasn’t got much of an opportunity but they definitely poses a huge threat to their oppositions. The biggest plus for Mumbai in their last game was the form of Jasprit Bumrah and James Pattinson. Rahul Chahar has been terrific with the ball too. All in all Mumbai has all their bases covered. 

MI Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma - Rohit Sharma  blasted a magnificent 80 against KKR. He would be willing to go a step further and touch the three figure mark. 
  • Trent Boult - Trent Boult has been outstanding for Mumbai in the two matches they’ve played. Expect him to continue his good run against RCB too
  • Rahul Chahar – Rahul Chahar has been a find for Mumbai Indians. He was exceptional in the last game and with the pitch at Dubai supporting spinners; he can turn out to be the trump card for Rohit Sharma.

RCB vs MI Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    You don’t have to look further than Quinton de Kock as your wicketkeeper. He at 9.5 credits is your best bet. Apart from him, you can also go for Josh Philippe, but he’s not certain to play the game.

  • Batsmen

    When it comes to batting, there is plenty to choose from. Rohit Sharma (10.5), Virat Kohli (10.5), AB de Villiers, Aaron Finch (9.0) all are big match players you can choose from. Along with them, Suryakumar Yadav at 9.0 will add balance to your team.

  • All-rounders

    As all-rounders, the two Pandya brothers can be a good pick. You can also go for Kieron Pollard, who at 9.0 is not a bad choice at all. Chris Morris can be a dicey pick as he’ doubtful for the match. Washington Sunder too is more of a container rather than a wicket- taker. 

  • Bowlers

    Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal at 9.0 are wonderful choices for your team. Along with them, Trent Boult at 8.5 and Rahul Chahar at 8.0 can also prove fruitful..

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, all can be good choices for captain while players like Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal and Surya Kumar Yadav can be ideal for vice-captain.

RCB vs MI Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli(vc), Aaron Finch, Surya Kumar Yadav

  • All Rounder:Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard

  • Wicket Keeper:Quinton de Kock (wk)

  • Bowler:Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar
