Royal Challengers Bangalore (Playing XI): Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli(c), AB de Villiers(w), Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Adam Zampa
Virat Kohli speaks at the toss
RCB captain Virat Kohli: “We wanted to bat first, it has worked well for the teams. It’s a decent shout to defend on this ground. We’re working extra hard on our catching and fielding, but the pitch has played really well. Dew hasn’t come in and KXIP showed we can defend scores on this ground. I think we bowled well in the first match, last game, we didn’t have the momentum going into the death overs. We’ll be looking to be more attacking with the ball - three changes, Zampa and Udana are in, they replace Phillipe and Steyn. Gurkeerat comes in, he replaces Umesh Yadav.”
Rohit Sharma speaks at the toss
MI captain Rohit Sharma: “We will bowl first. The wicket looks abit green but dry. Hopeful that it plays well under lights, that’s the reason we are chasing. We’ll have to play good cricket, back yourselves to do the job. The results have been in favour of team batting first, but we had a great last game and the confidence is there. Early days the middle-oprder hasn’t got much to bat, a lot of guys haven’t played a lot of cricket. One change, Saurabh Tiwary isn’t fit, Ishan Kishan is in.”
Mumbai Indians Playing XI
One change for Mumbai Indians - Saurabh Tiwary is not fit and has been replaced by Ishan Kishan in the team.
Mumbai Indians (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock(w), Rohit Sharma(c), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, James Pattinson, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
Toss - RCB vs MI in Sharjah
Mumbai Indians win toss, elect to bowl against Royal Challengers Bangalore at Dubai.
Toss in 5 minutes
This is it - Virat vs Rohit - Toss in 5 minutes! Who will win the first battle of the match?
“A week back, this pitch had tufts of grass, which is missing today. The surface is very dry and that means the seamers might not enjoy the conditions. There are some long boundaries on this ground and the dew factor has been minimal.” - Kevin Pietersen and Michael Slater
Two debuts for RCB tonight
Adam Zampa and Isuru Udana will make their RCB debuts tonight, the franchise has already confirmed. Still remains to be seen which two foreign stars will sit down.
Bumrah vs Kohli
Jasprit Bumrah vs Virat Kohli will be an enthralling contest. Bumrah has only dismissed Kohli twice in IPL. Kohli is out of form, and Bumrah is just starting to find some.
Irfan Pathan’s advice to RCB
“Look, I think they will get better as soon as Chris Morris comes in. I see Morris coming in, Steyn going out and they are settled. What I don’t want from RCB is Shivam Dube bowling the death overs. They have a better team, they have better batsmen comparatively. They are not just dependent on AB de Villiers or Virat Kohli. This year they have Aaron Finch as well, Paddikal started very well. So, there are lots of positives, but in the last game, the way they bowled Shivam Dube in the last over. Navdeep Saini should bowl a minimum of 2 overs at the death because he’s the guy who can nail those yorkers as well as he can just bluff the batsmen and bowl bouncers at the death as well.”
- Irfan Pathan on Star Sports
Toss in 30 minutes
We will have the toss in 30 minutes. Stay tuned for RCB vs MI - Kohli vs Rohit.
Aakash Chopra on Royal Challengers Bangalore
“If we talk about Royal Challengers Bangalore, they won a good first match against Sunrisers Hyderabad but lost by 23 runs to KL Rahul itself in the second match. They dropped catches, batting did not come good and bowling was very ordinary.
“I feel they will have to request AB de Villiers to keep wickets and play Moeen Ali in this match and give rest to Joshua Phillipe.
“Second thing, in the last 6 overs you need to keep 2 overs each of Chahal, Saini and Isuru Udana whatever happens at the top. If you don’t do that, you will once again be found wanting.”- Aakash Chopra on Royal Challengers Bangalore
Aakash Chopra on Mumbai Indians
“Mumbai Indians had an off-day in their first match. But the way they bashed KKR in their second match with Pat Cummins being smashed, the unbelievable innings Rohit Sharma played. Quinton de Kock had shown form in the first match.””All their players including Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Pollard and Hardik Pandya are in form. They don’t need a change in their bowling attack. It is a perfect team.” - Aakash Chopra in a video on Youtube channel
Key player for RCB
One of the key players for RCB have to be AB de Villiers. When Virat Kohli is not in form, it is Cricket’s Mr 360 degree who needs to shine with the bat, keep the energy up on the field, and advice Kohli on strategies. He is the perfect allrounder that RCB desperately rely on.
Purple Cap Update
Mohammed Shami pipped Kagiso Rabada to hold the Purple Cap. Shami improved his wickets tally in the IPL 2020 to seven in three games to currently have two more than Capitals fast bowler Rabada (five wickets from two matches, having bowled eight overs). The KXIP bowler leads the Purple Cap list that has Sam Curran, Sheldon Cottrell and Yuzvendra Chahal in the top five.
Orange Cup update
With 222 runs, KL Rahul has edged past his teammate Mayank Agarwal to take possession of the Orange Cap. Although Agarwal scored his maiden IPL century – a fine knock of 106 off 50 balls – it was Rahul who nosed ahead by a run following his knock of 69 off 54 balls on Sunday. Rahul and Agarwal are followed by Faf du Plessis, Sanju Samson and Steve Smith in the top five with 173, 159 and 119 runs respectively.
IPL 2020, RCB vs MI: Rohit on cusp of milestone
Rohit Sharma is just 10 runs away from joining Suresh Raina, and Virat Kohli in the IPL 5000 club. Rohit, so far, has 4,990 runs in the IPL.
Will Hardik Pandya bowl today?
Here is what Zaheer Khan had to say on Hardik Pandya’s bowling.
“He [Hardik Pandya] is the kind of guy who really changes the balance of the side when he is bowling and he understands that. At the same time, he also has to look after his body. That is a conversation we are having, in consultation with the physios. We are looking forward for him to bowl.” - Zaheer Khan, Director of Cricket Operations, Mumbai Indians on why the Hardik Pandya hasn’t bowled yet.

Will Virat Kohli bounce back?
“I think that I am going to stick with where I was at the start of the tournament. Talking about a guy like Virat Kohli, you are talking about his showmanship and where he likes to play the game. And, his ability to accept the energy of the ground,” Kevin Pietersen said on Star Sports.
“He hasn’t started very well at all. And he accepts that, and he even said at the press conference, accepting the responsibility of some of the stuff that he has been doing. So, he is man enough to accept his responsibility and I am still very interested to see how a guy like him makes a comeback,” Pietersen said.
“He is the best of the best when it comes to batting has the best showmanship of the sport. But there is no spectators and a showman needs spectators. So, at the moment, he is not very good, and he accepts that. But it will be very interesting to see if that graph does move and he gets used to playing. It will be the most interesting feature of this IPL to see Kohli with no crowds.” READ MORE
