Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians Betting Tips 26/09/2021

Teams Status

Royal Challengers Bangalore

After a humiliating defeat against KKR to start the UAE leg, RCB found plenty of runs from their openers in their last game, including their struggling captain Virat Kohli, but a victory still evaded them as CSK emerged victorious at their expense.

The zero-time IPL winners have now lost two in two in UAE and are currently placed third on the points table.

In the defeat to CSK, RCB openers did their job. In fact, when Kohli departed the score was a very healthy 111-1, with the 14th over just having started. Even when his partner Devdutt Padikkal got out at the end of the 17th, the scoreboard read 140-3. Of the next 18 deliveries, only 16 runs were made, for which Glenn Maxwell, Tim David and others are to blame.

Mumbai Indians

Like RCB, Mumbai Indians have also lost both their matches since IPL resumed in the desert, although in their defence they’ve had their injury troubles.

Captain Rohit Sharma missed the last match and is again an uncertainty for this fixture. Allrounder Hardik Pandya hasn’t featured at all in the UAE leg, and although bowling coach Shane Bond says he is fit enough, it remains to be seen if he would feature against RCB.

Such is their winning pedigree that Mumbai’s form issues during the round-robin stage are generally ignored. But they are languishing in sixth place in an eight-team league. If they want to defend their crown, they will have to lift their performances sooner rather than later

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: RCB to win @ 2.0

For all their problems, RCB do not have an injury problem, which is certainly not the case with Mumbai. There is no guarantee that either of Sharma or Pandya would play, with Mumbai’s Bond openly saying that priority is to have the allrounder fit for next month’s World Cup. Meanwhile, ECB did get part of their batting working in the last game, and the part that is on the fritz features Maxwell and De Villiers. You can expect them to come alive soon. We expect that to happen in this game. The play here is to back RCB to win @ odds of 2.0 with Betway.

Tip: AB de Villiers total runs over 23.5 @ 1.832

Since the restart, AB de Villiers has had two very forgettable outings. It’s about time he delivers. The tip is based purely on gut feel but hey we’ve hit those before. A man of his caliber cannot be kept quiet for long. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

The last time these two met during the India leg, RCB won by two wickets. We again expect a tight match, with RCB triumphing by a slim margin.
