MI vs RCB Dream11 Match Prediction — Who's going to win today's match? Vivo IPL 2021, Match 1

Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore as in MI vs RCB will lock horns with each other in the inaugural game of the 14th Season of IPL which will be held at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday, April 09 2021. Both the teams have faced each other 29 times in IPL from which Mumbai has succeeded to win 19 times while Bangalore struggled to win just 10 of them. 

Defending champions Mumbai Indians will be eyeing to start their season with a cracking win but by looking at their losing streak in the inaugural game of IPL from the last seven years, they might not be able to break that curse. On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore is set to commence their season with a newly formed squad which looks pretty promising as the availability of Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Christian, Finn Allen & Kyle Jamieson makes them a bit strong this season. 

Nevertheless, both the teams will look to put up a good show under the captaincy of Big fat players Virat Kohli & Rohit Sharma. Mumbai will be playing their first match without the presence of Quinton de kock as he is going through the isolation period while Padikkal RCB will miss Devdutt Padikkal who tested positive recently & went under observation for a couple of days. 

Pitch and Ground Report for the first match between MI vs RCB:

Total Match Played: 82

Batting First Won: 47

Batting Second Won: 33

Tie: 2

Avg. Score in 1st bat: 160

Highest Score: Chennai Super Kings 246/5

The pitch at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai has been a spin friendly surface considering the stats of the last couple of completed matches at this venue where spinners have bagged maximum numbers of the wickets. Pacers will also get some assistance especially with the new ball but as the match progresses, they will have to change their pace in order to restrict the batters. 

Bowlers like Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar & Piyush Chawla might emerge out to be the top wicket takers of this match.

Expected Top Picks from MI vs RCB:

Virat Kohli was in supreme touch during the recently concluded short format series against England by scoring consecutive half centuries which is a good sign for Bangalore ahead of the start of 14th season of IPL. His head to head matches & venue stats makes us eager to see another vital knock from the skipper in Red Jersey. He has mustered 695 runs at an average of 28 with the help of three half centuries in 28 head to head matches. 

Mr. 360°, Ab De Villiers is all set to commence another season with Bangalore by facing off his favourite franchise against which he has mustered 726 runs at an average of 45 with the help of four half centuries and a century in 22 matches against the opponent. His 228 runs at an average of 38 with a strike rate of above 150 in 8 matches at Chennai makes him the best captain, vice-captain choice in the fantasy team.
