RCB vs MI: The 5th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will see Mumbai Indians locking horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday, April 2nd at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
Having finished fourth in the points table in the previous season, Royal Challengers Bangalore is looking to improve their performance this year. Faf du Plessis will once again lead the team, but they have been hit hard by injuries as Will Jacks and Rajat Patidar have been ruled out of the tournament. To add misery to their woes, their star pacer, Josh Hazlewood’s availability for the first few matches is uncertain.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, had a disastrous season last year, but they have made some significant changes to their squad. The addition of Cameron Green and Jofra Archer adds depth and quality to their already star-studded team. Mumbai Indians will be looking to put their previous struggles behind them and start the tournament on a high note, showcasing their prowess as five-time champions.
