Hello and welcome to the live coverage of match 31 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 edition wherein Mumbai Indians (MI) play host to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Monday (April 15). Rohit Sharma-led MI face bottom-lying side in Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the iconic Wankhede stadium after the hype surrounding India’s 15-man squad for the ICC World Cup 2019 comes to (some) rest. In the present scenario, MI are still well-placed, despite the loss to Rajasthan Royals (RR) at home, but will be wary of a firing RCB – who look charged up after their first win of the season versus Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Saturday (April 13). If RCB get the better of MI at their fortress, it will be a huge morale booster for them.
However, MI’s head-to-head record versus RCB keeps them ahead prior to the commencement of the encounter.
