Mumbai Indians scored 235 against Delhi Capitals, showcasing their impressive batting skills at home. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan finally got some crucial runs with the bat with big-hitters like Tim David and Romario Shepherd finishing with quickfire cameos. The bowling also clicked in the game with Gerald Coetzee and Jasprit Bumrah picking up wickets. MI started the season slowly but came back to winning ways in the previous match. They have won one match and lost three matches in this tournament. Thus, Mumbai would like to continue their winning momentum. 

On the other hand, it has been the same old story for RCB. They heavily relied on Virat Kohli to give them consistent starts. The likes of Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell also have not hit form. Cameron Green seems to have lost his all-round ability since joining RCB. The team lacks bowling depth, a standout pace attack, and reputed Indian or overseas spinners in their ranks. Overall, there is a lack of depth both in their batting and bowling departments. Bengaluru also started the season slowly. Thus, the Challengers would like to come back to their winning momentum in the tournament.
