MI vs RCB Dream11: Top fantasy picks, probable XIs and pitch report

Mumbai and Bengaluru have clashed against each other 34 times, with MI winning on 20 occasions. RCB have clinched 14 matches against the five-time IPL champions.

Two heavyweights in Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) are set to lock horns in Match 25 of IPL 2024. The much-anticipated encounter will take place at the iconic Wankhede Stadium on Thursday, April 11.

Both teams come into this match desperate for wins, currently languishing in the lower half of the points table.

MI finally got off the mark in their last match, defeating Delhi Capitals by 29 runs. Their openers, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan, have been providing strong starts, but the middle-order, particularly Hardik Pandya, needs to find form to capitalize. Bowling remains a key spot, with Jasprit Bumrah leading the attack. However, they would need other bowlers to step up as well.

RCB’s situation is even more precarious, having won just one out of their five matches. Their batting, heavily reliant on Virat Kohli, has been inconsistent. Big names like Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green haven’t fired yet, and the team needs a collective effort to post competitive totals. Their bowling, just like previous seasons, has faltered thus far and in need of an inspiring performance in upcoming fixtures.

Wankhede Stadium pitch report

The Wankhede Stadium has earned its reputation as a batsman’s paradise. The flat track with short boundaries on both sides is a dream come true for aggressive hitters. While the pitch heavily favors batsmen, pacers can’t be discounted entirely. The new ball is likely to offer some swing and seam movement, which both teams’ fast bowlers will be eager to exploit. Taking early wickets and restricting the flow of runs in the powerplay will be crucial. The surface also favors batters even more in the second innings, meaning the captain winning the toss is most likely to field first.
