Royal Challengers Bangalore: The forms of Dinesh Karthik and Shahbaz Ahmed have given a big boost to the side. Faf du Plessis too has looked impressive, however, the side would want Virat Kohli to get some runs under his belt. Meanwhile, Glenn Maxwell is available for them and this is another plus for the side. In the bowling department, Wanindu Hasaranga and Harshal Patel are in good touch, while David Willey and Mohammed Siraj will also look to gain back their forms.
Mumbai Indians: Suryakumar Yadav joined the team in their recent game and proved his mettle with an impactful half-century, Dewald Brevis too was impressive in his maiden IPL game and will be given plenty of more chances for the talent and potential he possesses.However, it would be the form of skipper Rohit Sharma that would worry the side. Meanwhile, Daniel Sams’ poor form might see him getting dropped from the playing XI. Riley Meredith may replace him.
