Bengaluru: RCB were bowled out for their lowest IPL total of 70 against CSK While MI suffered 37 runs defeat to Delhi Capitals. So, in their second outing, both teams will be hungry to taste their first win in IPL 2019.
At the same time, Mumbai Indians will try to find a solace winning the away match against RCB. They lost to DC by 37 runs on Sunday. After a poor start RCB batsmen will be expected to pile on a big total on the board.
With renowned batsmen like Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shimron Heymeyer in the team, that should not be an uphill task. Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal will again be the key man in the RCB bowling attack and will need the support of the other bowlers.
RCB and MI met each other nine times at Bengaluru. RCB won only two while MI won seven. So, this time around Virat Kohli led RCB will look to improve their track record against the visitors.
