Cracking battle on cards as RCB take on MI

Sachin Tendulkar will be the major factor when RCB take on MI on Tuesday

Bengaluru, Apr 11, 2011

Royal Challengers Bangalore will not just have to address Sachin Tendulkar’s unsatiated hunger for runs and Kieron Pollard’s blistering powerplay, but will also have to be wary of Lasith Malinga’s seering yorkers when they take on Mumbai Indians in the IPL match on Tuesday.

Although Mumbai’s bowling armory is trifle weak, they have a destructive bowler in Malinga who decimated Delhi Daredevil’s batting might yesterday at the Ferozeshah Kotla.

The Lankan pace-bowling spearhead returned with inspiring figures of 5 for 13, which was instrumental in bowling out Virender Sehwag’s outfit for a niggardly 95.

Malinga’s fiery, toe-crushing yorkers would be something that the Royal Challengers (RCB) think-tank, chaired by Anil Kumble, would have discussed in detail during the team meeting.
