The contest between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians is a very interesting one for a few reasons. Firstly its the competition between two of India’s best players, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma as they both go face to face this season.
On the hand its also a contest between batting of RCB against the quality bowling attack of Mumbai Indians consisting the likes of Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah and James Pattinson.
Which is why by all means we have to watch out for a for few players in the game as it’s going to be a contest of extremely high volume going in. We will have to see which team propels at the end of this game as its the ultimate battle between the men in blue and men in red.
Let’s take a look at the 5 key players to watch out for in the MI vs RCB game:
1. Devdutt Padikkal
The young batting prodigy Devdutt Padikkal marked his arrival in fashion as he notched up a fifty to be the first Indian to score a fifty on IPL debut. Though Devdutt didn’t really have a great outing in the 2nd game against the Kings XI Punjab but you cannot count someone out based on just one game as we expect him to bounce back with a big score in the match against Mumbai Indians.
If he continues his form, the Royal Challengers Bangalore might just pose a serious chance of winning the Indian Premier League for the very first time in 13 years.
