Indian Premier League 2020: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs. Mumbai Indians, Match No. 10

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a huge defeat against Kings XI Punjab the last match while made a good comeback with a victory over Kolkata. RCB`s bowling is their weaker link in yet another season and barring Yuzi Chahal. Mumbai has a good all-round team but their big-hitters in the middle order are yet to hit form. Bumrah & Co will be raring to go against Kohli & Ab which will be a mouthwatering contest. Mumbai Indians look strong on paper and we expect them to win this match. 

Score Prediction: Dubai will be a good pitch for the batsmen if they settle down and it will be tough to score freely at the start of the innings with slow and uneven bounce. The average score at this venue will be around 170-180 runs. 

Toss Prediction: Teams batting first has good success ratio in the matches played so far and we expect both teams to bat first if they win the toss.

ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE: Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Josh Philippe/Parthiv Patel (wk), Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj/Moeen Ali, Dale Steyn/Isuru Udana, Yuzvendra Chahal

Players to Bet on

ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE

  1. Virat Kohli – Kohli had an awful match against KXIP as he dropped a couple of catches and then was dismissed without scoring with the bat. He is champion player and we expect him to bounce back strongly in this match.  
  2. Yuzi Chahal – Chahal has the lone warrior in the bowling department with 4 wickets in 2 matches at an economy rate of just 5.4 RPO.   
  3. AB De Villiers – ABD has scores of 51 & 28 in the two matches played so far and looks to be in good touch. We can expect some swashbuckling shots for Mr.360 in this match.  

MUMBAI INDIANS

  1. Rohit Sharma – Rohit Sharma scored 80 runs of 54 balls with 3 boundaries and 6 sixes in the match. We expect Rohit to make a big score in this match too.     
  2. Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah picked up the wickets of Morgan & Russell & gave away just 5 runs in his first 3 overs. He went for a lot of runs in his last over and will look to change his execution plans in death in this match. 
  3. Trent Boult – Boult will look to trouble the batsmen early on with his swing with the new ball. He had good control with the ball in the first two matches operating very smartly.
