IPL 7: MI vs RCB – Mumbai Indians aim for first win as they face RCB
As two of the most glamorous sides in the Indian Premier league, the focus of the match between MI and RCB will invariably be on the middle-order players of both sides – Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard and Corey Anderson, and Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
Mumbai lost the first game will be desperate to make this count. Bangalore on other hand won the first game with an ease and would like to win this game also to settle at top of the table. MI has a better bowling line-up compared to RCB’s. However, RCB’s batting is slightly better than MI’s given that Corey and Polly looked poor against spin. The match will also be the first of the tournament to be held in Dubai.
Head-to-Head in T20’s:
Mumbai has a better record in head to head clashes as they won 7 of the 13 games played. They also beat Bangalore in CLT20 twice in two games.
Pitch and Weather Report:
Mumbai, though, have a unique problem on their hands of deciding where they want their big batsmen to bat. Michael Hussey‘s innings could be an aberration, but there will be some debate on whether Pollard‘s position in the batting order needs to be more flexible, especially in a tall chase. If they do that, it will leave Corey Anderson as a buffer between the batting and the tail.
Mumbai Indians’ Possible Playing XI:
There are kinks for Bangalore, too. Ashok Dinda’s T20 league has started from where it ended last year and as impressive as the bowling was in restricting Delhi to a below-par score, their profligacy with wides was a glaring problem. Chris Gayle’s availability is also in doubt.
