MI vs RCB Dream11 Grand League Team, Team News: IPL 2019

It was a long wait for the RCB fans but finally they got some smiles on their face as their side won their first match of the season against the Kings XI Punjab in a handsome manner by 8 wickets.

Their next assignment comes in the form of Mumbai Indians at their fortress in Wankhede where the environment is always buzzing and the crowd backs their side imperiously. However, Mumbai Indians will be coming into this contest after a not so impressive show against Rajasthan Royals where they succumbed to a 4 wickets loss in the final over of the match.

This would be the second meeting between these two sides in this edition. Their last encounter took place at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru where MI won a cliffhanger amidst a no-ball controversy by 6 runs.

Pitch report:

It is one of those surface which generally assists the stroke-makers as they are aided with short boundaries all around the park. This could well be a same situation where the batsmen might get good runs under their belt. The seamers do get some purchase in the later half of the game but the surface predominantly assists the batsmen.
