A record of five-time champions Mumbai Indians captained by Rohit Sharma will face Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Virat Kohli today. The fans of RCB and MI are very excited to know who will win today’s match.
One good news for RCB fans is that Devdutt Padikkal is back on the field after two consecutive negative COVID-19 tests. Last year in IPL 2020, he was the leading run-scorer for RCB. At the same time, Ab de Villers’ fans are expecting him to exhibit his master class once again in this new IPL season and take the team to win its first IPL Trophy!
On the other hand, Rohit Sharma is also looking for a good start in the new IPL season. He is one of the leading scorers for MI and will try his best to maintain the same consistency. Down the order, Mumbai Indians have got explosive batting all-rounders – Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya, who will ensure that Mumbai Indians finish the game in style.
