Today Match IPL 2018: Mumbai Indians probable 11 against Royal Challenge Bangalore
Question in detail
MI vs RCB today match: Mumbai's reputation as a slow-starter or a team making late comeback is unarguable. The side, having made it to the knockout round seven out of last eight times, which also include four final appearances and three title wins, is suffering initial stumbles much like the way they had been since 2010. IPL 2018 is no exception to Rohit Sharma & his men. They have begun the fresh season in a similar fashion. However, going by the history, Mumbai Indians can turn the things dramatically.
Presently at the bottom of the table after three consecutive losses in as many games, the defending champions are now in need of a desperate win. In the next encounter, their fourth in IPL 2018, they will have RCB up against them at Wankhede Stadium, their home ground. In MI vs RCB today match, they will rely on their batting line-up, which includes the likes of Evin Lewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kerion Polard, Kurnal Pandya and the captain Rohit Sharma himself.

The biggest fiasco to Mumbai's disappointing start to the league this year has arguably been Rohit's constant failure. Suryakumar Yadav, irrespective of where he comes out to bat, has apparently been impressive giving MI's limping batting line-up some extra edge. He has scored 124 runs in 3 innings at a strike rate of near 135. Next to Suryakumar is Ishan Kishan, who has showed some promise in the middle. Big names like Evin Lewis, Kerion Polard and Rohit Sharma haven't yet played to true their potential. One or two of them will have to play a big knock to bring back Mumbai on track in MI vs RCB today match.
MI probable 11 against RCB, as mentioned above, will be without Akila Dananjaya. And the man to replace Lankan pacer will be Adam Milne, who has been deputed for injured Pat Cummins. Milne for Dhananjaya is the only change Rohit Sharma's team can go with against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Will Mumbai Indians snatch their first victory beating RCB in today's match?
