Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
On 15th April 2019, the 31st match of the IPL 2019 season will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai where the Royal Challengers Bangalore will get a chance to score their second IPL win as they take on the Mumbai Indians at 8:00 PM IST. RCB did get their first victory last Saturday against the Kings XI Punjab. So, they seem to be approaching the pitch with a fresh and positive mindset to defeat an already in-form Mumbai Indians on their home turf.

Virat Kohli, the captain of the RCB team, didn’t exactly get lucky from the beginning. Even when they were losing, it seemed as if the entire team was given a long rope. After six consecutive losses, they finally found their winning streak, when the team won a solitary match last Saturday against the Kings XI Punjab. Yet, they are still lowermost in the points table.

Unless they are forced to, the Mumbai Indians team is not likely to change their current players’ combination. When playing against the RCB in 2016, they won 6 out 11 contests and the notorious Jasprit Bumrah has taken a lot of wickets especially playing against the RCB. Twice each, he dismissed de Villiers and Virat Kohli.
