Both these teams emerged winners in their respective matches on the ‘Super Sunday’. Dwayne Smith did it for Mumbai and hours later AB de Villiers replicated it for Royal Challengers Bangalore. This is going to be a tremendous clash as both the teams would want to secure two very precious points.
Seems Mumbai Indians have an upper hand because of their bowling line-up. Malinga is in top gear as always, Harbhajan is bowling with so much more confidence and flight since last few games and Peterson is more than handy. They also have utility players like Rayudu, Franklin and with Tendulkar back in the line-up they’ll be blazing all guns. We all saw last game the kind of form God is in.
For Royal Challengers it is very much a must win game because a loss here will make it little tough for them to qualify for play-offs. They will be hoping that one of their numerous match winners’ fires tonight. On his day, Gayle can be as destructive as it gets, Dilshan, AB and Kohli make the line-up even stronger. They however need to bowl better. Zaheer and Vinay Kumar look out of form which puts too much pressure on the spin of Muralitharan.
This is a crucial game which promises to be a real humdinger!!!
