After the most epic run chase of all times experienced in the last match, Rajasthan Royals have proved time and again that anything is possible in this format of the game. Kings XI have gone down to suffer their second loss of the season after such a valiant effort in the field. Rajasthan, on the other hand, has won their second match on the trot. The matchday today is perceived to be nothing short of an exciting encounter as it is the Captain vs Vice Captain: Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma in the game of Royal Challengers Bangalore against the Mumbai Indians.
While MI is confident after a convincing victory over KKR, RCB has been thrashed down by KXIP in their previous encounter after a KL Rahul onslaught.

The game today is all set to be held at the Dubai International Stadium and the conditions are going to be similar as it has been throughout the tournament so far. The dew in the second innings has still not affected the game in a big way and the wicket has a lot of runs in it.

RCB vs MI Head to Head
Mumbai Indians have a clear edge over their RCB counterparts as they have defeated them 16 times out of 25 encounters. This time around, RCB has a lot of problems with their bowlers, and the MI team is filled with frontline batters that like to go after the ball. MI have won 7 out of their last 8 games against Royal Challengers.
RCB vs MI Gameplay
It is predicted that MI will win the toss and elect to bat first. Sharma & De Kock will go all guns blazing as the powerplay will yield maximum runs today. Umesh Yadav would be a good reverse fantasy pick on BalleBaazi. Good support will be given from Suryakumar Yadav & Saurabh Tiwary as the score would go on to be close to 200.
RCB will fall short of this total even after a glance of form from Kohli & De Villiers.
