IPL 2021 MI vs RCB Match 1

The first match of the Indian Premier League 2021 edition to start with Mumbai Indians and the Royal challengers Bangalore on the 9th of April.

On one side, Mumbai Indians, who are in hunger for their 6th IPL trophy, on the other hand, Royal Challenger Bangalore with legends and yet to win a cup.

The match starts at 7:30 PM IST in M A Chidambaram Stadium at Chennai. The match will be played behind a closed door without spectators due to coronavirus.

Mumbai Indians 


Mumbai Indians are the dominating team in IPL. They won almost 70% of their matches in the IPL in the last two seasons. They have got a good batting lineup that can score even in death overs and good bowlers who can deliver wickets in the same death overs.

Here is the squad of Mumbai Indians for the 2021 IPL


Probable Playing 11*: Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan (wk), Anmolpreet Singh, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya. Kieron Pollard, Adam Milne, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Piyush Chawla/Rahul Chahar.

Team News: 

Royal Challengers Bangalore


One of the worlds top batsmen cum captain, a batsman cum wicket-keeper who can hit the ball in any direction, and the worlds best spinner is their team but they are unable to lift the IPL cup.

Devdutt Padikkal, a young talent, who recently showed his performance in the Vijay Hazare trophy secured a place in the team. But, due to coronavirus, he was quarantined in his house in Bengaluru.

The team didn't announce anything about his status in the first game. If he is still positive, he might not play in the first game. RCB needs Padikkal best performance in the powerplay to get a good score in the game.

Here is the Royal Challengers Bangalore Squad for IPL 2021:
 


Probable Playing 11*: Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal, AB de Villers (wk), Washington Sundar, M Azharudeen, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj, Glenn Maxwell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Kyle Jamieson

* Probable playing 11 is just a guess by my side after the careful analysis of the teams. These are not 100% garunteed.

Team News

  • Adam Zampa might not be available for the first match due to his marriage.
  • Devdutt Padikkal tested positive for coronavirus on march 22nd. He might not play the first match.
  • An Indian wicket-keeper will be behind the wickets for RCB. Not the Mr.360.
  • Daniel Sams tested positive for coronavirus ahead of the first match.

Numbers:

Virat Kohli is just 122 runs away to reach 6000 runs in IPL.

Toss: The team that won the toss might choose to Bowl first. The dew later on the field might help score runs.

Pitch report: Chennai will always help spin bowlers very well. The dew in the second innings of the game might slightly change the outcome. The average runs scored in this ground is 144 runs. I would be expecting at least 150 to 170 on the board for the first innings. 

Weather: At the beginning of the match the temperature will be around 31 C and the temperature will be dropping to 29C with a partly cloudy sky. The winds will be blowing at 20 to 21 kph towards the city.
