Mumbai Indians will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 48th match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time
Both, Mumbai and RCB faced a shocking defeat to Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings respectively in their previous games but that shouldn’t be much of the worry for either of the teams. Mumbai and Bangalore have been two best performers of this season and with 7 wins in 11 games are knocking on the doors of the playoffs. A win for either of the team will seal their birth in the top 4.
Mumbai were missing the services of Rohit Sharma in the last game but still managed to put up a massive score on the board. It’s a sign of the great team that can put up a stern challenge to their opposition even if their top players are missing. Bangalore on the other hand had a forgetful night the other day against CSK. It’s not that RCB played bad cricket, credit must go to Chennai for putting up a great show. RCB still are a very strong side and will be up there to challenge Mumbai Indian’s supremacy. Overall, it is expected to a thrilling encounter but Mumbai’s bowling gives a definite advantage to the men in blue.

MI vs RCB Toss Prediction
Toss is not something that can be predicted but teams winning might want to chase.
Abu Dhabi is bearing the effects of scorching heat. Temperatures are expected to hover in the high thirties,
The pitch at Abu Dhabi is on the slower side and spinners will enjoy bowling on these wickets. Someone like a Krunal Pandya who bowls wicket to wicket can be very handy here.
