With less than 15 days remaining for the IPL Playoffs, we’re still unsure who our top four are going to be as table topper Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore go face to face at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium In Abu Dhabi. The winner of today’s match will go on to qualify for the playoffs as one of the teams will end up on 16 points.
Talking about the Mumbai Indians side, they have played their last two matches without the services of their skipper Rohit Sharma which is why we saw Kieron Pollard lead the side in his absence. Mumbai Indians will go into this match on the back of a thumping loss against the Rajasthan Royals side as Ben Stokes smashed his maiden IPL hundred to rule out Mumbai another victory in the season.
On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore will also be coming into this game after sustaining a loss from three-time champions Chennai Super Kings as youngster Ruturaj Gaikwad scored his maiden IPL fifty. Virat Kohli definitely won’t be taking this match lightly as he would personally want to qualify and finish in the top sides of the tournament as the ‘Play Bold’ franchise has never won the prestigious title.
With the match expected to be of extremely high volume as its the battle between two top sides of this tournament let’s take a look at the five key players to watch out for from both the sides.
Let’s take a look at 5 key players to watch out for when Mumbai Indians take on Royal Challengers Bangalore:
1. Yuzvendra Chahal
Yuzvendra Chahal has been another unsung hero for the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s emergent success this year. Along with Washington Sundar, he has been leading the spin bowling department of the Royal Challengers Bangalore bowling unit this season.
It’s on the back of Yuzvendra Chahal’s fine performance Royal Challengers Bangalore have reached so far in the IPL 2020. He will once again look to be in his elements and deliver the goods for his side.
