MI vs RCB Pitch Report: Six hitters or swing artists who will dominate this time?

MI vs RCB Pitch Report:A batting-friendly wicket is a certainty at Wankhede, which is, as usual, always favored for batting. But one twist might show a new face as it is an evening game, and there is a possibility that the bowl will swing both ways due to the sea breeze, which will help the fiery pacers.

Traditionally offering lots of runs, the Wankhede pitch has been known for high-scoring encounters. Since the MI vs RCB clash is an evening game, expect the new ball to make the difference yet again.

MI vs RCB Pitch Report: Six hitters or swing artists who will dominate this time?

In 112 IPL matches to date, as mentioned earlier, Wankhede usually witnesses high scores. But this time, we might see a new picture.

In the last evening game between MI and RR at Wankhede, MI scored just 125 runs in 20 overs. Here, RR pacer Trent Boult scalped 3 wickets, clearing the MI top order in the first 6 overs of the powerplay, which is a clear indication of how pacers can be deadly in these seaming conditions. It could be possible that the side winning the toss should opt to bowl first.

The team batting first has won 51 times, while the chasing sides have won on 60 occasions.

The average first innings score of 169 gives us the full picture of how deadly batters can be. Speaking of the highest total to date, it is 235 runs, which RCB made in 2015 against MI.
