Following a doubleheader Sunday, the action now moves to Mumbai for Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) clash. Royal Challengers Bangalore have been relieved to bag their first win this season as it came very late, in their 7th match. However, they would hope to gain some momentum to stay alive in the tournament.
Mumbai Indians failed to defend 188 against Rajasthan Royals thanks to a Buttler special. They would be looking to get back to winning ways to make their win tally 5 from 8 games. RCB is still at the bottom of the table with just one win. The nearest team is Rajasthan with 2 wins.

The sad news for Mumbai Indians is that their breakout star, Alzarri Joseph has injured his shoulder and he is out of the IPL 12. He will most likely make way for Sri Lankan pacer, Lasith Malinga who has been traveling between India and Sri Lanka to play both the IPL and Sri Lanka’s domestic One Day Cup.
Royal Challengers Bangalore finally looked like a team which would win any game on any day, therefore we don’t expect any changes to the winning combination from last game.
Here are the teams for Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore match:
- Rohit Sharma(c)
- Quinton de Kock
