Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will square off in IPL 2023 tonight (April 2). This match will only be played at RCB’s home. Virat and Rohit’s teams will meet at 7:30 p.m. at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Get to know some special things before this big game…
The gate of this floor is as flat as ever. That means it’s going to rain a lot here this time too. There will be help here for the hitters in both innings of the game. The team that wins the toss can choose to pitch first, as it has been easy to chase here.
This ground is definitely the home of RCB, but RCB have won 42 of the 82 games played here and lost 40, which means that the result has been almost 50-50. At the same time, the record of the Mumbai Indians in this field has been much better. Mumbai have won 10 of their matches here and lost 7 matches.
Bangalore weather will be completely clear today. That is, just like the Punjab vs Kolkata match the day before, the rain will not hinder here. The winds will continue to blow at a speed of 20 to 30 km/h, which is normal. The temperature will be from 20 to 35 degrees Celsius. The temperature will remain around 30 degrees during the match. That is, this match will be played in a very hot summer.
Some important players in the squad of both teams are out due to injury and some players are busy with international matches. Like Mumbai’s Bumrah and Richardson, Indians are out of IPL. At the same time, RCB’s Josh Hazlewood and Rajat Patidar are currently out of this tournament due to injury. RCB’s main player Wanindu Hasaranga is unavailable for this match due to the T20 series being played in New Zealand.
