Toss - Up goes the coin and it lands in favour of Mumbai. They have elected to bowl.
Mumbai, on the other hand, have had the same issues in the second leg. Their batting has been far too inconsistent and they need to sort out their issues. They have a good record against Bangalore and they would hope that they can play their best game here. Hardik Pandya did not play the first two games and it would be interesting to see if he returns to the XI to bolster their line-up.
Bangalore's batting has to step up! Their middle order has failed to get going this season, with the likes of AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell, not being able to replicate the form they showed in the first leg. They did bring in Tim David in the last game but he too failed to get going. Everyone knows that if these three get going, Bangalore can be a dangerous side and they will hope today is the day, they get back to form. We will have to wait and see.
Hello and welcome to game number 39 of the Indian T20 League. In this game, Mumbai will be locking horns against Bangalore. Both the teams are desperate for the two points. They have been not up to the mark since the restart. Bangalore though still find themselves in the top half of the table, unlike Mumbai who saw themselves slip down to the sixth spot after their defeat against Kolkata. Who will come out on top? Which team will break their winless streak?
