(Mumbai Indians take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 27th match of IPL 2014 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Tuesday. Catch Live Scores and Live Updates of the match here)
Mumbai Indians take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at their home ground after a much awaited victory to open the books for their points in IPL 2014. Royal Challengers Bangalore was also in a rut but they also come into the contest having won their previous match and they will aim to be victorious against the still ailing Mumbai side.
Both MI and RCB have won their matches but the things that makes them so good on paper like RCB’s batting and RCB’s bowling have failed to show what they really can do on the field which is worrying for the respective team’s successful bout to the final win.
Kieron Pollard fired his cannons in the last game where Mumbai won but the rest of the team has only sparks despite being an explosive line up they have. The batsmen have to play to their strengths in the match because the pitch at Wankhede Stadum in Mumbai is known to favour the batsmen. We can expect a high scoring match between Bangalore and Mumbai today.
