Match 48 – MI vs. RCB – Wed, 28th October
IPL Match Prediction
Defending champions Mumbai Indians will be ambitious to win a match in the business stages of the tournament against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Match 48 of Dream 11 IPL 2020. The game will be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium of Abu Dhabi on 28th October. Both the teams have one foot in the playoffs and will be wanting to anchor their spot.
These teams have put a near-perfect show this season. We know it always a cracking contest when these two teams play each other. Their previous encounter led to a super over win for RCB, where MI nearly pulled off a magnificent chase after losing early wickets. Credits to Ishan Kishan’s 99. IPL Match Prediction predicts that MI will bounce back after their comprehensive loss against the RR.
Despite the absence of skipper Rohit Sharma, due to injury, Mumbai Indians have looked reasonably stable. With no confirmation on Rohit’s return, the team will be looking to strengthen themselves to face the ferocious Bangalore. Given how vast their bowling stocks are, they haven’t required Hardik Pandya to bowl. Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult in tandem have been providing early wickets in the power play.
If any team can boast of having almost all bases covered, it is the MI. They have managed to rest players with their substitutes also delivering seamlessly. For instance, Ishan Kishan opening the batting in the absence of skipper Rohit Sharma.
It’s not just that RCB’s momentum that has been so significant this year, but the sense of a transparent system and plan. They have been astute with tactics and haven’t shied away from its use even at the risk of backfire. Like seen in their previous match. And the roaring success of Mohammed Siraj. They have ended up somewhere at the top of the table and are up to face their contenders, Mumbai.
Both these teams come into this match after a defeat. Often there is a shiver of anticipation when these two teams meet. Our Dream11 Team Prediction says players like Virat Kohli and Chris Morris from the RCB and Quinton De Kock, and Hardik Pandya from the Mumbai Indians will be the Key Players to watch out for in this IPL match.
