We are nearly the end of the league stage of the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL). In match 48, Royal Challengers Bangalore face the Mumbai Indians for the second time this season. RCB’s bowling has been exceptional this year comparing with previous seasons.
RCB’s batting has consistently been their quality and they will anticipate that their hitters should pull out all the stops against MI and sack those two points. MI will be hoping to correct their errors from their loss against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and they also will be hoping to win the challenge.
Mumbai Indians’ bowlers were destroyed by the RR hitters, yet their batsmen progressed admirably, putting a high score on the board. It will be a game that is probably going to remain open until the last possible minute as both the groups will be hoping to win two points and seal their spot in the playoffs.
3 players who can miss today’s game
1. Navdeep Saini
Navdeep Saini has been splendid with the ball for RCB for the greater part of this season. Yet, the injury cloud drifting over will influence him and his group’s performance. There is still no clarity on his accessibility for the game against MI and this can be the undeniable purpose behind RCB to avoid him from playing XI.
2. Krunal Pandya
Krunal Pandya has been a find for MI since he initially began playing for them. He is a splendid all-rounder and can clear the boundary effectively. He can also bowl in a nice way in the middle overs with few wickets too. In any case, with MI comprising of players like Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya, the team can decide to avoid Krunal to include a proper batsman.
3. Moeen Ali
Moeen Ali hasn’t got numerous opportunities this season and at whatever point he got one, he hasn’t capitalized on it. Remembering his form, Moeen could be sidelined for the upcoming game.
