RCB vs MI Match Preview IPL 2016
A big one tonight! A really big one. Hard hitters on a venue that is loved by batsmen. You got it right. Mumbai Indians play at Wankhede Stadium against the mighty Royal Challengers Bangalore. Both these teams have suffered a loss in their last match and they would seek a win tonight in a tough battle. Watch live streaming of this exciting match on HotStar. Enjoy live TV telecast on Sony Six, Sony Max and Sony ESPN HD.
Mumbai will have to give away with Wankhede soon as their home ground matches would be shifted to Jaipur. The reason for this amendment is the drought issues faced in Maharashtra. Well, Rohit Sharma seems to have already hit the panic button. He has criticised the batsmen in his team. Rightly so, they need to step up and perform before its too late for the defending champions to stay alive in this cash rich T20 league.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have won one match and lost the another. They registered a big win over Sunrisers Hyderabad but lost to Delhi Daredevils in the next. Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Watson are in supreme form and Kohli will take a lot of confidence with this. Watson also comes in handy with his exceptional bowling.

Languishing at bottom half of the points tally isn't doing any justice to the Mumbai Indians potential. They can't bounce back every time after losing a many. Rohit Sharma is well aware of this fact and he has appealed for better performance from the batsmen. Even the bowling has been upto the mark. Injuries to the likes of Lasith Malinga and Lendl Simmons has hit the team hard. Even a match winner like Kieron Pollard doesn't look in form.
Last time when these two teams clashed at Wankhede, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers feasted on Mumbai bowlers. Mumbai Indians would be wary of this fact. Wankhede stadium is such a venue where hard hitters would prevail if they time the ball well. And at this moment, RCB batters are in better form. This would be the right match for Mumbai Indians to gain their lost form back and win a confidence boosting match.

The another good part for the spectators would be Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma. Two genuinely talented cricketers who play for the country would face each other. Right time for them to show their skills and enjoy the game.
