Match and Pitch Condition

Weather: Clear weather with the temperature expected around 35° during the start of the match and then decreasing gradually as the match processes.

Pitch Condition: M.Chinnaswamy Stadium is known for its short boundaries and flatter pitches. The match is expected to be another high scoring given the recent nature of the pitch.

However, in the last match on this ground against DD, bowlers dominated the game as Delhi restricted RCB to 157-8 and then RCB bounced back to stop Pant and Co. at 142-9 and winning the game by 15 runs. But with the batting prowess MI and RCB contains (boosted by the return of Kohli), a score of 180+ is on the cards.
Among the bowlers, Spinners is expected to come into play.

Team News
