Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians, IPL 2016, Match 41 at Bangalore: Preview

Virat Kohli has been in magnificent form throughout this tournament, having already struck a couple of centuries already. For MI, it is their top-order, consisting of Rohit Sharma, Parthiv Patel, Ambati Rayudu and Jos Buttler, who have performed well and gotten their team off to a solid start.

RCB’s weak point is their bowling and the inclusion of Chris Jordan has made very little difference. For MI, Mitchell McClenaghan has been excellent and will be entrusted to bowl his best in this match as well. It is a must win for both teams as they look to keep their playoff hopes alive.
