Match Preview for MI vs RCB Dream11 Contest:

The opening game of the 2021 VIVO IPL season will be played between the Mumbai Indians (MI) and Bengaluru (RCB) at the Chepauk in Chennai on April 9th at 07:30 PM IST.

The defending champions MI are no doubt favorites to make it a hattrick of IPL titles, as they dominated the IPL 2020 season and were head and shoulders above the rest. RCB had an impressive season last year, but got knocked out in the Eliminator. They will be hopeful that this is finally the year where they win their maiden IPL crown.

MI vs RCB Dream11 Prediction:

MI have beaten RCB in three of the last four times that these two teams met. Thus, although the defending champions haven’t won their opening game since 2012, that jinx might well be broken tomorrow as they will have the edge over RCB, who lost their last five IPL games too.

Weather Report:

A warm evening is expected with the temperature expected to be around 29 degrees. The humidity as expected in this part of the world will be as high as 63%. But there might also be a gentle breeze blowing at about 18 kmph.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Chepauk has been traditionally good for batting while the ball is hard and new. If there is no dew later in the game, the pitch would tend to slow down and assist the spinners more. With two powerful batting lineups going head-to-head, expect a runfest.

MI Probable Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, James Neesham, Hardik Pandya, Piyush Chawla, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.

RCB Probable Playing XI:

Mohammed Azharuddeen (wk), Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Sachin Baby, Daniel Christian, Washington Sundar, Kyle Jamieson, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal.
