Match information: MI vs RCB Dream11 Prediction

  • Match: Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, Match 54

  • Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

  • Time: 7:30 PM IST


Key fantasy pointers

  • Both Mumbai and RCB are coming on the back of a defeat.

  • Last two games at the Wankhede saw teams scoring 200+ in all four innings. 

  • And the last game here saw Mumbai chasing down 213 against Rajasthan.

  • RCB have won four of the last five matches against Mumbai, including the one earlier this season at their home.

  • Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli have five 50+ runs opening partnership this season, including having scored 148 runs for the first wicket last time they faced MI.

  • Faf du Plessis is currently the highest run-scorer in the tournament with over 500 runs and five half centuries. He was the player of the match against MI last time for his 43-ball 73.

  • Kohli also scored an unbeaten 82 off 49 in that match. 

  • Suryakumar Yadav has found his form and is clearly one of the best batters in the second half of the season. 

  • In the last five games, Surya has 227 runs at a strike rate of almost 190 and three half centuries as well.

  • Piyush Chawla is easily the bowler to watch out for from the MI camp. The veteran spinner has 17 wickets in 10 games at an average of 16.47.

  • RCB has the worst average (14.15) against leg spinners this season and 20 dismissals as well, making Chawla’s case even more stronger.

  • Josh Hazlewood took a wicket at the Wankhede last year every 10 balls. In three games, the ace pacer took 3 wickets at the Wankhede. 

  • Mahipal Lomror scored a brilliant half century in the last match and will be crucial in the RCB middle order for this game as well.

  • Cameron Green is another batter in the MI unit who has been doing well since moving his batting position to top of the order. 

  • RCB might make a couple of changes, including Shahbaz to counter the likes of Suryakumar Yadav in the middle overs. 

  • Tim David has been a completely different beast doing the finishing role at the Wankhede Stadium. He has a strike rate of over 201 and got out only once this season at the venue.

Poor form alert (MI)

  • Archer has taken only one wicket in the last 12 overs.

  • Rohit Sharma got out for a duck in the last two innings and has just 5 runs in total in the last four innings.


Poor form alert (RCB)

  • Maxwell has 9 runs in the last three outings including a golden duck in the last game against DC.

  • Dinesh Karthick has 16.25 average with the bat in the last four games at a strike rate around 127 as a finisher.

  • Siraj has only 3 wickets in the last 13 overs.

  • Hasarange has only 3 wickets in the last 16 overs.


Risk-Reward alert

  • Mohammed Siraj is having a very poor second half of the tournament, taking just 3 wickets in the last 4 matches.

  • However, he is too good a bowler to stay quiet for this long especially with the new ball. 

  • Hasaranga is another risky pick but might be worth picking considering his numbers last year’s numbers at this venue where he took eight wickets in four matches.

  • Arshad Khan will be another player from the MI unit worth taking the risk. RCB has done well against left arm seamers this season but still Arshad might have a chance against a right handers dominated batting of the Bangalore franchise.

  • Harshal Patel has a brilliant record against MI but still will be a risky pick at the Wankhede where he could manage only 2 wickets in four games last year.

  • Ishan Kishan is currently the joint highest run-scorer for MI this season. However, considering RCB being the best team this season with the ball in the powerplay, the southpaw might not be a sure option, especially if MI bats first. 

  • Glenn Maxwell has a strike rate of 146+ and is the best spin player in this RCB unit but also got out 3 times against them this season. 

Probable MI Playing XI

Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma/Nehal Wadhera, Tristan Stubbs/Dewald Brevis, Tim David, Arshad Khan, Jofra Archer, Piyush Chawla, Akash Madhwal

Probable RCB Playing XI:

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Anuj Rawat/Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, Karn Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood

Probable Impact Sub: Harshal Patel
