After crushing defeats in their previous matches in the Indian Premier League, both Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore will want to get back to winning ways at Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
Defending champions MI had overcome a stuttering start to post 195 against RR as all-rounder Hardik Pandya stepped up to score a rapid half-century, which made up for the lack of runs from Quinton de Kock, Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav.
However, Ben Stokes’ century relegated MI to an eight-wicket defeat and though it did not affect their position on the table, strike bowlers Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult and Rahul Chahar will want to start afresh in the next game.
MI may also welcome back regular skipper Rohit Sharma into the line-up after he missed the last two games due to injury. Watch MI vs RCB on live streaming.
Royal Challengers Bangalore meanwhile suffered a fourth loss of the season against three-time champions CSK despite captain Virat Kohli scoring a half-century.
Protea legend AB de Villiers has looked good in a few matches for RCB, but their bigger concern will be the dwindling form of openers Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch.
Leggie Yuzvendra Chahal has been in great form and is also among the top-five wicket-takers in IPL 2020 while the young Navdeep Saini has quietly impressed alongside all-rounder Chris Morris.
