In the 13th season of the Indian Premier League, there will be a competition between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians on Wednesday. Both Mumbai and RCB teams have a chance to reach the playoffs today. Both teams have 14–14 points in 11–11 matches. Mumbai is in the first place due to better run rate, while Bangalore is in second place.

The team that won on Wednesday will become the team that reached the playoffs this season. With 16 points needed to make it to the playoffs in the IPL, both teams are just two points away from qualifying. The biggest difficulty for Mumbai Indians is the fitness of captain Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma was not part of the team in the last two matches due to hamstring injury. According to the reports, Rohit Sharma’s chances of playing in the match against RCB are equally unlikely.

At the same time, RCB have suffered defeat in the last match at the hands of Chennai Super Kings. For the first time this season in the match against CSK, RCB’s batting did not appear in the rhythm at all. Captain Virat Kohli, however, will be expected to make a strong comeback from the team in the match against Mumbai Indians.

If we talk about Mumbai Indians, then in the absence of Rohit Sharma, the team’s command will once again remain in Pollard’s hands. There is no possibility of any big change in both teams for today’s match.
