Mumbai Indians (MI) will aim to build on the winning momentum when they take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 27th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 tournament at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Tuesday.

MI witnessed a terrible outing in the UAE leg of the tournament as they returned winless. But back in the familiar territory, the Rohit Sharma-led side snapped their dismal five-match losing streak with a five-wicket win over table toppers Kings XI Punjab on Saturday.
The stadium was a mini fortress for MI which could not be breached in eight attempts last year and the title holders certainly enjoyed the home advantage against the Punjab franchise when they secured their first win after five losses, in the process snapping KXIP’s five-match winning streak.

 

It has been Mumbai’s batting, more than their bowling, which had caused their slump in the tournament, but they would be encouraged by the collective batting performance in the last game.
