Royal Challenger Banglore:
This edition of Dream11 IPL is not usual for RCB. RCB looks solid throughout. There is no margin of change in the final 11 for RCB. They are all in good form and contributing their bit to teams’ success. The inclusion of Chirs Morris into the 11 strengthened the bowling unit along with Navdeep Saini, Isuru Udana, Yuzu Chahal and Washington Sundar. Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers are all in great touch.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indian is no less than Royal Challenger Banglore. Mumbai had a tough time when they last played in UAE, they lost all 5 matches played by them in 2014. But things have changed now, circumstances aren’t the same. There is a quality experience in the squad. Having won 4 titles, Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Skipper) has gained a lot of experience.
This time Mumbai Indians is doing great by winning 7 matches out of 11 played by them. They are sitting at the top in Points Table. Everyone in the team has contributed to team success. Every match Mumbai has produced different Key Players. Everyone is in good touch. The only problem for Mumbai Indians is their Skipper Rohit Sharma is Unwell for the past few days and has missed 2 games already. That’s a bit of a concern for Mumbai other than that team looks solid.
