Mumbai Indians lost their first game of the tournament and then they made a brilliant recovery in their next game against the Knight Riders.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, and Yuzvendra Chahal.
BLR vs MI Team Wicket-Keeper
Quinton de Kock (Price 9.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Quinny is not in a really good form but there is no competition of him in this category. He is a brilliant player of spin bowling and scored over 500 runs in IPL 2019.
BLR vs MI Team Batsmen
Rohit Sharma (Price 10.5) and Suryakumar Yadav (Price 9) will be our batsmen from the Mumbai Indians. Rohit finally showed his class in the last game by playing an outstanding knock of 80 runs and the way he was playing those shots, he looked in sublime touch whereas Surya has been the most consistent batsman of the side for the last couple of seasons. He also played a brilliant knock of 47 runs in the last game before getting run-out. Both of them are the ace players of the side and will be picked.
Virat Kohli (Price 10.5), AB de Villiers (Price 10), and Devdutt Padikkal (Price 8) will be our batsmen from the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Virat is struggling to find his form in the tournament and he was really poor in his fielding as well against the Kings XI Punjab but still, he is a class player and there is no doubt about it whereas AB has scored a half-century in the tournament and he is looking in a decent touch with the bat. Devdutt is a young prodigy and he has the ability to play some serious knocks. This trio will be picked for this game.
BLR vs MI Team All-Rounders
Shivam Dubey (Price 8.5) will be our all-rounder from the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Shivam has surprised everyone in the tournament so far and has picked four wickets in just a couple of games whereas he has scored 19 runs in his batting as well. He is looking in a decent touch and should be picked.
BLR vs MI Team Bowlers
Jasprit Bumrah (Price 9), James Pattinson (Price 8), and Rahul Chahar (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Mumbai Indians. Bumrah is a world-class T20 bowler and he proved his class in the last game by picking three important wickets of the Knight Riders. Patty & Chahar are picked to manage the credits but they have also bowled really well and have picked three wickets each in just a couple of games so far in the tournament. All three of them are wicket-takers and will definitely be picked for this game.
Yuzvendra Chahal (Price 9) will be our bowler from the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Chahal has always been the trump card of RCB and he has been spitting fire in this season as well. He has picked four wickets in just a couple of games in the tournament and will be the main bowler of the team in this game as well.
Match Prediction: Mumbai Indians will be the favourites to win this game.
