MI vs RCB Today Match Prediction & Tips

Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Match 25 of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Mumbai Indians take on Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday evening. Both sides have won only one game so far in the tournament with Mumbai beating Delhi Capitals in their last game. RCB, on the other hand, have not won since Match 6. This clash gets underway at 19:30 local time on Thursday 11th April.

In a high scoring clash with Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians finally got their season up and running thanks to some excellent individual performances with bat and ball. However, there is still much more to come from the side and we expect to see another strong display in this game.

In spite of brilliant form from Virat Kohli, RCB have already lost four games so far in this 2024 IPL. Their bowling attack has been too expensive and they will face another tough task in this match as they take on a strong batting unit.

Although Mumbai Indians won when batting first at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday, teams fielding first do have a stronger record over recent times at this venue. Therefore we expect the skippers to select to bowl if they call correctly at the toss.

MI vs RCB Pitch Report

There was plenty of pace in the wicket in Match 20 and the expectation is for a similar surface for this game. As such, a par score will be in the region of 205-210 and top order batters should be able to make plenty of runs in the powerplay.

Mumbai Indians Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

After losing their three opening games, Mumbai Indians made three changes to their starting XI ahead of their last match. The changes seemed to work and included Suryakumar Yadav back from injury so with this fixture at the same venue we expect to see the same team.

MI Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma – The former skipper struck six fours and three sixes at the top of the order in the last game but comes into this match still looking for his first half-century of this campaign.
  • Hardik Pandya – After his move from Gujarat Titans during the off-season, the captain will be delighted to get his first win. He also impressed with the bat hitting 39 from number four.
  • Jasprit Bumrah – The all-format pace bowler was the most economical of the bowling attack against Delhi Capitals and dismissed two of the top three.
  • Gerald Coetzee – The South African right-arm fast medium bowler is a real competitor and his confidence will be high after taking three wickets in the final over of the innings in the last match.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Kwena Maphaka, Naman Dhir, Shams Mulani, Akash Madhwal, Nehal Wadhera

On his first game back from injury, Suryakumar played only the batting innings with Akash Madhwal coming in and bowling four expensive overs. There could be an opportunity for Kwena Maphaka or Shams Mulani to play during the fielding innings this time.

MI Team Form

Mumbai Indians ended a three match losing streak with a 29 run win over Delhi Capitals in Match 20 in the IPL 2024.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing 11

Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Mohammad Nabi, Romario Shepherd, Gerald Coetzee, Piyush Chawla, Jasprit Bumrah

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

Faf du Plessis was disappointed with the intensity from his players in the field against Rajasthan Royals so we can expect more energy across the side in this game. If there are to be any changes to the side, expect them in the bowling unit.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli – The experienced right-hander was the first player to bring up 200 runs this season and now 300 runs after his 113 not out from 72 balls against Rajasthan.
  • Faf du Plessis – The South African skipper will have been pleased from a personal perspective to hit 44 runs in the last game, his highest score of the tournament so far.
  • Reece Topley – The England white-ball international was exceptional with the new ball in the last match and he should get excellent pace and bounce from this wicket.
  • Mayank Dagar – The left-arm spinner was very expensive in the last match but will be required to bowl his full allocation against the right-handers of Mumbai Indians and will look to find more consistency.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Suyash Prabhudessai, Mahipal Lomror, Himanshu Sharma, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Swapnil Singh

Leg-spinner Himanshu Sharma came into the side for the bowling innings in the last match but was expensive so on this pitch we expect medium pacer Vijaykumar Vyshak to be a likely option. Saurav Chauhan is expected to get an opportunity during the batting innings once again.

RCB Team Form

RCB come into this game looking to avoid their fourth straight defeat. However, there were positives with the bat in their last match.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Glenn Maxwell, Saurav Chauhan, Cameron Green, Rajat Patidar, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Reece Topley, Mayank Dagar, Mohammed Siraj, Yash Dayal

🏆 Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru Prediction

Cricket fans from across the globe will be desperate to watch this match with the potential of seeing Jasprit Bumrah bowl at Virat Kohli along with many other huge names in action.
