MI vs RCB VIVO IPL 2021 Prediction, Playing 11

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has a legacy to defend while Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli would be looking to create one as they both gear up to pull off a fresh trick when the new edition of Indian Premier League starts on Friday, cooped up in a bio-bubble as a raging pandemic wreaks fresh havoc. Two editions of IPL within a space of five months isn’t an ideal situation for all the stakeholders. But for the fans at large, exhausted by the second wave of COVID-19 with cases going past the one lakh mark daily, watching towering sixes, toe-crushers and new talents unearthed will be a welcome diversion in the next seven weeks.Also Read - ICC AGM: PCB to Challenge IPL's Proposed Extended Window

The opening encounter will be between defending champions Mumbai Indians and under-achievers Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai and the big-hitters on both sides will ensure that necessary fireworks will be there even if fans are absent from the stands thanks to the pandemic. If one looks at the bigger picture, the 14th edition of IPL assumes greater significance as it is being held in a T20 World Cup year and that too in the sub-continent.

If Kohli will keep a ‘Hawk Eye’ on the performances of his probable list of players, it won’t be any different for an Eoin Morgan or a Kieron Pollard, who would also be preparing for the mega-event while giving it their all for their respective franchises.

For Rohit, the most successful captain in the ‘IPL Universe’ with an unprecedented five titles, he could well walk away with a sixth trophy and the first title hat-trick of this league. Mumbai Indians, perhaps in the near two decade existence of Twenty20 format, is a side that will be remembered for its aura. If Rohit fails, then Quinton de Kock will certainly succeed. If both fail, Ishan Kishan and Surya Kumar Yadav could scare the daylights out of the opposition. And if the top-order is blown away, then the indomitable Pandya brothers (Hardik and Krunal) will be on the rivals’ case.

MI vs RCB Pitch Report

MA Chidambaram Stadium pitch is known to assist the slower ball bowlers and the batsmen find it tough to get going. With this being the season-opening contest – the Chennai strip likely to offer some runs and support for the batsmen, they need to adjust to the conditions before getting going on this wicket. As the weather gets cooler in the evening, dew might play some role late on as the game progresses. Considering the prevailing conditions, teams are opting to field with dew making batting much easier in the second half of the game. With the likes of Kohli, De Villiers, Rohit, Suryakumar, Hardik and Pollrd in action – we can expect a run-fest on Friday.
