The Indian Premier League 2020 took a fantastic turn when the
top three teams lost their respective matches. After Kings XI Punjab Rajasthan Royals losing their respective matches, seven of the eight teams are still on hunt to qualify for the play offs. RCB, DC & MI are competing to secure their position in the top two on the points table. If the teams manage to win their respective next matches, that would be of massive help to them.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians will encounter each other at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on 28th October, 2020. The resultant of the match will occupy the top two positions.
ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE – The team has been terrific so far, but is still facing unanticipated losses. There is not much difference between the two teams on points table except the net run rate differs. Right now the team occupies the third position on the points table due to their inferior run rate and a win in the upcoming match would push them to the top because Delhi Capitals lost their
match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The team management did an excellent job to provide bowling in order. The team utilises Washington Sundar extremely well and juggled around their bowlers to perfection. In their last match against Kolkata Knight rider, their bowlers wrecked havoc and listed the win in their name only because of the bowlers like Chahal, Saini and Siraj with seven wicket and plenty of overs to spare.
Everything considered, their batsman performed way poor in their match against Chennai super Kings. The opposition won the match by eight wickets as their bowlers failed to manage the situation. Their credit to accelerate the innings lies on Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. To chase the total, it is necessary for one of them to be on the crease during the death overs.
The team gained help with the addition of Chris Morris as an all
rounder. The team brought Moeen Ali replacing Isuru Udana
which led them to search option for wickets. However the latter might be included in the upcoming match. Despite the fact that RCB have done quite well, the incessant slashes and changes haven’t generally helped the focus in on an ideal mix. They have received the technique of ponies for-courses and may blowback on the off chance that they neglect to effectively accept the idea of the surface.
MUMBAI INDIANS – Their loss against Rajasthan Royals was unexpected. This exposed few of their vulnerabilities to the opposing teams which might be used in there against. This might lead the team
to bring their A-game performance approaching towards the end of the tournament. After their win over Chennai Super Kings, their bowling suddenly turned deadly and sharp as the duo Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson scored immense, which no team has scored yet. Their spinners have been hammered away It could be difficult against Royal Challengers Bangalore with a power packed batting lineup. The team could give a bounce back strongly in the upcoming match with the ikes of Jaspreet Bumrah, Trent Boult and James Pattinson. Like bowling, their batting too looked unbalanced. Except Surya Kumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan, none other batsmen seems in control. Handling the spinners is going to be a major task as the match is once again going to be played on a slow surface. Their opposition doesn’t have much of spinners and with the likes of Hardik Pandya and Pollard will be tough with straight boundaries. Their loss against Rajasthan was the 1st in which they didn’t even get to fight. The team needs to get back to
winning ways. Rohit Sharma can be witnessed once again to be
sitting in the pavilion due to his injury. Kieron Pollard will be in
charge as the captain and is pretty capable. The team has been terrific so far and one loss cannot change that. The team got professional players at their disposal and might take a colossal effort to get past.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS The captain winning the toss would field first as the teams are now getting hold of the surfaces and increasing totals in the recent matches. The dew might assist to the team batting second.
