IPL 2018 14th Match: MI vs RCB Match Predictions
If you want to find the two most disappointing teams of the IPL season so far then it would probably be the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Indians are the defending champions, but they are yet to win a game from their opening three, while the Challengers have a great batting line up, and they have only managed one win from their first three. Both have the ability to do well, but we are so far yet to see it from them and it will be an interesting game to watch, to see if either can gain some much needed momentum. . Who will win 17th April MI vs RCB prediction is placed below.
The Indians have not lost by much in their opening games, so they are showing signs of being a good team. They lost the opener with one ball to spare, lost their second game by four runs and lost their third game on the final ball of the innings. They are getting close, but so far it hasn’t been close enough, considering they are the defending champions. In their game against Delhi over the weekend the batting line up looked good, but it was bowling where they struggled, picking up just three wickets. Improvement in their bowling is what will take Mumbai to victories, so watch out for that when these two meet on Tuesday.
Bangalore have one of the best betting line ups in the tournament, beginning with Quinton de Kock, Brendon McCullum, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. They are backed up by Washington Sundar and Mandeep Singh, and overall they look very impressive with the bat. That gives them the chance to win games, and do much better than we have seen so far from them. They put an impressive 198 on the board this weekend, but conceded 217 to the Rajasthan Royals, showing that like Mumbai, bowling is their main issue. Four of the six bowlers used this weekend were hit for over ten runs per over, something they must fix quickly.
This is a game between two good teams, but two who have so far struggled to get going this season. Both clearly have the talent to go well and challenge in the IPL, but need help with their bowling issues if they are to climb the table. MI vs RCB match prediction 17th April 2018 is placed below.

On paper, if they put it all together the Royal Challengers Bangalore are the best of these two teams, with a fantastic batting line up. I am taking them to win this game, and move up the table with their second win of this IPL season.
