IPL: Mumbai Indians v/s Royal Challengers Bangalore: Mumbai win comfortably by 19 runs

Tuesday, 6 May 2014 - 6:59pm IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: dna webdesk

Venue: Mumbai
Start Time: 8 pm

Royal Challengers Bangalore are favourites as they take on Mumbai Indians in Mumbai on Tuesday. 

RCB won their first game against Mumbai comfortably, and they have been the superior side in the rest of the tournament as well, though they have won just 3 games out of 6. RCB have nearly won two more matches, while Mumbai won their first match this tournament against Kings XI Punjab a few days ago.

For Mumbai, the fitness of Zaheer Khan is in question. Mumbai have the option of replacing him with young left-arm pacer Pawan Suyal or leaving out Ben Dunk in favour of one of their foreign pacers, Marchant de Lange, Josh Hazlewood or Krishmar Santokie.

Bangalore, on the other hand, have no such problems. Varun Aaron and Mitchell Starc are doing a decent job, while young Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has really been an asset for the team.

Mumbai have to face up to the might of the RCB batting at its full strength - Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli - and Yuvraj Singh if he manages to click. For Mumbai, however, only Kieron Pollard seems to be in sound form, though Rohit Sharma showed a semblance of touch, and so did Corey Anderson in the last match.

The team winning the toss should bat first, but Bangalore will even back their chasing ability.
