Double header matches will be played on Sunday in the second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021). The second match of the double header will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians. Both the teams have faced defeat in both the matches played so far in the second phase of IPL 2021. Virat Kohli-led RCB are at number three with 10 points from 9 matches. He has played 9 matches till now. Out of this, they have won five matches and have lost four. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians led by Rohit Sharma have won 4 matches in their 9 matches and have lost 5 matches. He is at number six in the points table.
RCB and Mumbai Indians will try to win today’s match and move firmly towards the playoffs. RCB and Mumbai Indians can make some changes in their playing XI in today’s match. Talking about Mumbai Indians, Hardik Pandya, who has not played in the last two matches, is likely to be included in the playing XI. Hardik Pandya can get a place in the playing XI in place of Saurabh Tiwary. Apart from this, there is little chance of any other change in Mumbai Indians.
On the other hand, if we talk about RCB, then RCB can also make a change in their playing XI. In the last match, RCB gave a chance to Navdeep Saini. But he could not perform anything special. Shahbaz Ahmed can be included in the playing XI in his place. Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga has failed to impress so far. RCB will be expecting a good performance from him today.
