Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on each other in the 54th match of the Indian Premier League 2023 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. Both teams have five wins each from their respective ten games and are currently placed fifth and sixth in the points table.
Mumbai come into this game on the back of a loss to CSK, who won with 14 balls to spare. Mumbai put up a poor performance with the bat as they collectively managed only 139 runs for the loss of eight wickets in their 20 overs. Nehal Wadhera scored his maiden IPL half-century but none of the other batsmen were able to perform.
RCB come into this game on the back of a loss at the hands of Delhi Capitals. Batting first, they scored 181 runs on the back of half-centuries by Virat Kohli and Mahipal Lomror. But the Capitals chased down the target in just 16.4 overs with seven wickets in hand. This was RCB’s worst bowling performance of this season.
This will be the second meeting between Mumbai and Bangalore this season. RCB won the earlier fixture by eight wickets after chasing down 172 runs in 16.2 overs. Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis scored 148 runs for the first wicket, which laid the foundation for the win.
