The Mumbai Indians will host the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium in their Indian Premier League campaign on Wednesday, April 20, starting 2:30 pm GMT and 8 pm local time.
Mumbai Indians lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in their fourth game as their dismal show continued. The defending champions have just one win under the belt while the look to change their fate at Wankhede on Wednesday. The International Business Times notes that Tim Southee and Mitchell McClenaghan have been excellent with the new ball but others haven’t managed to exploit the conditions like them.
As per the official IPL T20 reports, Virat Kohli and Ab De Villiers are in exquisite form but Chris Gayle has been poor in the first two innings. The Bangalore team, too, lost their second game against Delhi after putting up a mammoth total of 191. Quinton de Kock’s blistering century in just 49 balls sealed the fate for the daredevils.
Both teams will be desperate for a win today and odds are slightly in favour of Bangalore.
