MI vs RCB head-to-head in IPL: Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore stats ahead of their 2nd leg

Mumbai Indians is most likely to take the field against Royal Challengers Bangalore without their captain Rohit Sharma on Wednesday. Both the teams are currently tied with 14 points. However, if MI are the table-toppers due to better net run-rate. The winner of this match will secure their spot in the IPL playoffs.

Rohit’s fitness has become a subject of unwanted attention ahead of the game. Having missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury, Mumbai Indians skipper returned to the nets on Monday, a day when he was not named in the India squad for the Australia series.

There is still no conclusive update on his fitness from either Mumbai Indians or the BCCI.

Meanwhile, for RCB, Kohli (415 runs) would like to continue his splendid run in the tournament. Australian Aaron Finch (236 runs), young Devdutt Padikkal (343 runs) and AB de Villiers (324 runs) need to be more consistent and support their skipper.

De Villiers has shown time and again, why he is regarded as one of the best T20 batsmen by turning the clock back on few occasions. If the RCB top-order fires in unison, then they can pummel the MI attack into submission.

The likes of Chris Morris, Moeen Ali and Gurkeerat Mann, who form the lower-middle order, can also chip in with useful cameos.

In case he misses, Chris Morris and Mohammad Siraj would need to shoulder greater responsibility along with Isuru Udana.
