Mumbai vs Bangalore in Indian T20 League

Mumbai, the most successful team, and Bangalore, probably one of the most unlucky teams in the Indian T20 Premier League lock horns in this tie-up filled with superstars of the game. While Mumbai has won the title an unprecedented 4 times, Bangalore is yet to register their first title win even after featuring in three finals. It is a battle between two of the best Indian captains of the current generation – Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Sharma has a clear upper hand over Kohli’s side in the Indian T20 Premier League but it is about time Kohli shows his class as well.

Historically, the Mumbai setup has had a huge number of wins under their belt against the Bangalorean side with a whopping 66.67 % winning ratio. However, the Bangalore side will be looking to make some inroads in that Mumbai lineup and win both their group stage matches against a strong side like Mumbai to get a momentum leading into the knockouts. On the other hand, Mumbai will be gunning to perform well against a title contender like Bangalore and eliminate the threat early.

With Mumbai not really tinkering with their lineup apart from adding T20 specialists Chris Lynn and Nathan Coulter-Nile to their lineup, Bangalore have made several changes to the side with additions of Aaron Finch, Chris Morris, Dale Steyn and Isuru Udana to name a few. With both teams looking good on paper, it should be an interesting matchup to say the least.
