IPL 2018 31st Match: RCB vs MI Match Predictions
Two teams fighting it out at the bottom of the table take each other on this Tuesday when the Royal Challengers Bangalore take on the Mumbai Indians. Both came into the season not expected to challenge for the title, but their performances so far have been disappointing. Mumbai are the defending champions so seeing them so low is a surprise, and the Challengers have a very solid batting line up led by the world’s best player Virat Kohli. This is a big game at the bottom, nobody wants to end as being the worst team, and that could happen to one of these. Who will win 1st May RCB vs MI prediction is placed below.
There is no doubt that the Royal Challengers Bangalore have one of the best batting line ups in the IPL, but bowling has let them down this season, just as it did last season. This is something they have to fix before the 2019 campaign, even if that means sacrificing one of their top batsmen to bring in a top bowler. With Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock and Brendon McCullum they have the ability to put a big score on the board, but we have seen them score over 200 and lose, something that shouldn’t be happening. Without a star bowler the Challengers are always going to struggle to pick up wins, despite scoring big and being fun to watch.
Just like the Challengers, the Mumbai Indians have won two out of their first seven games, to leave them joint bottom of the table. If their last game is anything to go by, things may be starting to click for the Indians, they performed very well to chase down the Chennai Super Kings to score 170 and win that game. Their big players came to play, with captain Rohit Sharma scoring 56 not out from 33 balls to lead the way. The big question will be whether or not they can build on that victory, and push themselves forward. RCB vs MI match prediction 1st May 2018 is placed below.
RCB vs MI IPL 2018 Prediction
While the Indians played well in their last game, I am taking the Royal Challengers Bangalore to win this one. They have a great batting line up, but their bowling leaves a lot to be desired unfortunately for them. They are fantastic to watch though, and bring great excitement to the game, and hopefully that can be enough to get them an important two points here. I am taking the Challengers to win this one.
