MUMBAI INDIANS VS ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE 1ST MATCH PREDICTION
IPL 2021 is here and the opening match is going to be played between the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore. This contest is essentially between the most successful franchise of the Indian Premier League and the perennial underachievers.
On one side are the Mumbai Indians with three IPL titles in the last four seasons and on the other are the Royal Challengers Bangalore yet to win a single title. RCB has managed to reach the IPL final three times in the past, though.
Also, MI is lead by Rohit Sharma, the vice-captain of the Indian cricket team but widely regarded as a better tactician than Virat Kohli, the captain of RCB and the Indian cricket team. To add a final layer of intrigue, the T20 World Cup is approaching and players will know a massive season could mean a place in the national squad for the big event.
Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL 2021 is going to be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on the 9th of April 2021.
MI vs RCB Match Toss Prediction
As with the India v England T20I series last month, we expect either Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma to elect to field first if they win the toss.
It will be 29 degrees when the game gets underway and as with earlier in the day there will be very little cloud cover.
Games in Chennai have historically favoured the sides with the strongest slow bowling attack. We expect the surface to once again be conducive to spin.
