Mumbai Indians have flourished in the IPL through that modus operandi. This season, their resources have helped change games, but they have failed to win important junctures, while defending a target. Mumbai have subsequently slumped to three losses to begin the season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, have lost two games resoundingly. Their only win, against Kings XI Punjab, was rather comfortably achieved. Like previous seasons, the lack of penetration in their bowling – they conceded 177 against Kolkata Knight Riders and 217 against Rajasthan Royals – and a weak middle order have continued to prove worrisome.
Hardik Pandya missed the second game with an ankle injury. He recovered in time for the third game, against Delhi Daredevils, and is available for selection against Royal Challengers.
