RCB v MI, 39th IPL Match Details

  • Date – Sunday, September 26, 2021
  • Time – 7:30 PM IST
  • Venue – Dubai International Stadium, Dubai.

RCB v MI, 39th IPL Match Preview:

Bangalore Skipper Virat Kohli looked good in the last match against Chennai, where he scored a fifty with a no-look out of the stadium six. Padikkal looks like he has been in a  good form for a while. However, AB de Villiers & Glenn Maxwell need to fire real soon in order to strengthen the batting lineup as well as RCB's chances of winning the trophy.


Harshal Patel has been a consistent wicketkeeper this season for RCB. Hasaranga has been wicketless till now but he has a great promise and can fire any time. Chahal also would be looking to regain his form.

Mumbai Indian's batting has been seen struggling apart from the opening pair - Quinton de Kock & Rohit Sharma/Anmolpreet Singh. The middle-order - Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Sourabh Tiwary need to show some consistency in order to keep the batting strong. 

Mumbai pace attack can be termed as one of the best in this IPL - Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah & Adam Milne. The spin attack in the form of Rahul Chahar & Krunal Pandya can also be dangerous.

RCB v MI, 39th IPL Match Prediction:

Both the teams have lost two out of two matches in the second leg of the IPL 2021. Given that, both these teams would be eager to mark a win, especially Mumbai Indians who have slipped out of the top four spots on the points table.

RCB v MI Head-to-Head(H2H):

  • Total – 28
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore – 11
  • Mumbai Indians - 17
