RCB top order has failed to perform as Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli couldn't score after performing well in the first game while Anuj Rawat has been average in all the games. Sherfane Rutherford has failed very badly as well. Dinesh Karthik did well in all the matches while Shahbaz Amed played a match winning knock in the last game. The bowlers have done a great job as Wanindu Hasaranga, Mohammad Sirah, Harshal Patel, Akash Deep and David Willey have been very consistent with the ball.  RCB will look to continue on the winning track and win this game as well.

Mumbai Indians have failed miserably in the 3 games they’ve played so far. Inconsistency in the batting unit and an ineffective performance from the bowlers is the main reason for the poor performance. Rohit Sharma is yet to play a big knock in IPL 2022 while Ishan Kishan failed after scoring in the first two games. Suryakumar Yadav’s return and Tilak Verma are the two pillars of the MI batting unit alongside Ishan Kishan at the top. Kieron Pollard too needs to be consistent with the bat. Dewald Brevis showed a lot of potential in his first game. There aren’t a lot of concerns in the MI batting unit.

The bowlers have failed in all the matches so far. Jasprit Bumrah bowled well against Rajasthn but was taken to the cleaners in the other two games. Tymal Mills have been decent but other than these two none of the bowlers have performed well. Basil Thampi and Daniel Sams have gone for plenty of runs. Murugan Ashwin too has been up and down with the ball. Mumbai will have to put in a team performance to do well in this game and going ahead in the tournament.
