MI vs RCB Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report IPL 2023 Match 54 | MI vs RCB Dream11 Prediction Today | Wankhede Pitch Report

Back in match five of IPL 2023, Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli put on a clinic to dispatch Mumbai Indians with ease. Since then, the fears surrounding each team has come to fruition somewhat, with Royal Challengers Bangalore still relying heavily on their opening duo and Glenn Maxwell, while MI’s ability to defend is in the spotlight.

So, the big question is which team will overcome their worries in this massive game? The winner will move into the top four of what is a packed and incredible table, where each result makes a significant difference. Also, when you consider both RCB and MI have negative net run rates, victory here is even more important.

The battles will make for intriguing viewing. MI’s seamers can break the back of the RCB batting lineup if they make inroads early. However, that is easier said than done given the indifferent form of their attack this year. For RCB, how their bowlers handle MI’s power hitters – particularly Suryakumar Yadav and Tim David – can be pivotal in the final analysis.

Strap in. This game between franchises who have two of the most passionate fanbases promises to be a beauty.

IPL 2023 54th Match: MI vs RCB fantasy tips: key players to watch/key stats

Mumbai Indians:

  • Suryakumar Yadav has struck 57, 23, 55, 66 and 26 in his past five innings. In 11 innings for MI against RCB, Suryakumar has struck 301 runs at an average of 33.44 and strike rate of 147.55, and has scored 48 off 22 against Siraj (one dismissal).

  • Glenn Maxwell has scored 0, 77, 5, 4 and 0 in his past five knocks. Since the start of 2021, he has smashed 115 runs in four innings vs MI at an average of 57.50 and strike rate of 164.29.
