Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted XI vs Mumbai Indians, IPL 2023: Will Faf Du Plessis And Co Make Any Changes?

Royal Challengers Bangalore will be squaring off against Mumbai Indians in their IPL 2023 match on Tuesday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In their previous meeting this season, RCB had emerged as the winners by eight wickets. Currently, RCB are standing at the sixth spot with a total of five wins out of 10 matches. They will be coming to this clash after facing a seven-wicket defeat against Chennai Super Kings. RCB will hope that their troika of Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell fire at the top, since whenever they have done so collectively, the team has found itself mostly on the right side of the results.
Mahipal Lomror struck a quality 54 against Delhi Capitals but his knock was not enough as RCB suffered a shock defeat, which kept them at the fifth spot in the points table with five wins and as many defeats in 10 matches.
With 511 runs, Du Plessis is the only batter this season to have crossed the 500-run mark and RCB will hope that their skipper gets going with others in his tow to a big total if they bat first.
But it remains to be seen if RCB have more in their batting shelf apart from the big three, who have done the heavy lifting so far in the IPL. Dinesh Karthik has failed with the bat this season and RCB also do not have a big hitter in their lower-middle order either.
The inclusion of Josh Hazlewood has provided a shot in the arm to RCB's bowling with Mohammed Siraj at the helm, having snaffled 15 wickets in 10 matches so far.
RCB's Predicted XI against MI:Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Mahipal Lomror, Glenn Maxwell, Suyash Prabhudesai, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammad Siraj.
