MI vs RCB: IPL 2023 team news

MI will be fretting over the fitness of N Tilak Varma, who missed the game against Chennai Super Kings because of a niggle. If fit, he will walk straight into the eleven, considering how vital a component he is in MI’s middle order. Jofra Archer has also been replaced by Chris Jordan in the squad. Hence, it would be interesting to see who MI opt for as their primary foreign pacer, with Riley Meredith, too, in the mix.

RCB, on the other hand, would want to put behind the result against Delhi Capitals and look at this fixture as a massive opportunity to move into the top four. They do not have injuries to worry about either and it could be a case of them tweaking their eleven based on the combination they want.

An extra spinner played in Delhi but there could be room for Vijaykumar Vyshak in place of Karn Sharma if they think pace is the way to go at the Wankhede Stadium.

MI v RCB: Today’s IPL 2023 match prediction

Both MI and RCB come into this game on the back of defeats on Saturday. MI, though, would hope to make the most of their home advantage, with their batters looking to capitalize on what is expected to be another flat track.

RCB, however, seem just a little better-balanced and while there is not a lot to choose between the sides, RCB might be slight favourites for this game.
