The 7th match of the IPL 2019 is going to be between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Now, both the teams have lost their earlier matches and would be eager for a win.
In the first match MI tried struggled with their bowling and we hope that they change it this time around. The good news is that Lasith Malinga would be joining them and that has created quite a stir in their supporters as well; but we will have to see if he joins them in this particular match or not. There was some speculation regarding Bumrah’s injury, but according to the management there is nothing to worry about though there is no clarification on his inclusion in this match.
- Match: RCB vs MI
- Venue: Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
- Date and Time: 28th March, 8:00 pm local time(2:30 pm GMT)
Although it would be hot and sunny in the day in Bengaluru but the temperature is expected to go down as the game starts and would be below 30 degree Celsius. There is no possibility of rain.
- Hot and little humid
- No rain predicted
The pitch favours the batsmen but has something for the spinners as well. So you might want to select your bowlers accordingly
On the other hand RCB would be playing at their home ground and that will definitely boost their spirits. They could actually go with their last XI and if they add a spinner to their team it could work on this pitch. Along with that they really need to work on their batting as they did not perform well the last time.

Suggested Selections for Fantasy Cricket Team
Moeen Ali seems to be a good pick along with Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. If anyone can stump (pun not intended) de Villiers it is Krunal Pandya with his amazing bowling against the dynamic batsman; plus, he can have his way with the bat too. Tim Southee might play this game instead of Grandhomme and Navdeep Saini looks promising especially after the last match. Pollard has shown a good performance against RCB especially in Bengaluru in the past few matches. If Bumrah is fit to play he can earn you good points. Quinton de Kock for wicket keeping would be good as he can earn runs as well especially at the Chinnaswamy stadium.
So have a look at the credits that you have and choose wisely to make a perfect fantasy team. We hope our inputs help you do so.
