Head-to-Head


Royal Challengers have won four of the last five matches against Mumbai… but Mumbai ended their run of wins by claiming a six-wicket victory in their last match, back in May 2023.

Mumbai Indians Form


After losing their first three matches of this season, Mumbai bounced back with a 29-run win over the Delhi Capitals.

Mumbai racked up one of the highest scores in IPL history, reaching 234/5 off their 20 overs. Rohit Sharma (49 off 27 balls) and Ishan Kishan (42 off 23 balls) got the innings off to a great start, but Tim David (45* off 21 balls) and Romario Shepherd (39* off 10 balls) lifted Mumbai to the 13th highest score in IPL history.

Gerald Coetzee (4/34) and Jasprit Bumrah (2/22) ensured that the Capitals were always behind the asking rate.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Mumbai Indians have found good form with bat and ball and are unlikely to make any changes to their team.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Form


Royal Challengers suffered their third loss in a row when they lost to Rajasthan Royals by six wickets.

Virat Kohli (113* off 72 balls) and Faf du Plessis (44 off 33 balls) added 125 for the first wicket but used up 14 overs in the process. RCB ended on 183/4 off their 20 overs, which they would have thought was 15-20 runs too short on a good wicket.

Rajasthan Royals picked off the runs with five balls and six wickets in hand, despite magnificent bowling from Reece Topley (2/27, econ 6.75).

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News


There are no injury reports from the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad, but they might look to beef up their bowling.

Verdict

I am backing Mumbai Indians to win. I am also backing Rohit Sharma to top score for Mumbai Indians.

Virat Kohli is a good bet to top score for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
