Royal Challengers Bangalore will be squaring up against Mumbai Indians in match 39 of IPL 2021 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. The match will commence on Sunday, September 26 at 07:30 PM IST. Here is our RCB vs MI Dream11 Predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
RCB vs MI Dream11 Predictions: Preview
RCB have lost 7 games in a row in UAE:
The Royal Challengers Bangalore have found the going difficult in UAE. They are on a 7-game losing streak in UAE. RCB who started the tournament with a bang having won 4 out of their first 4 games have now lost 4 out of their next 5. They have to start winning games in UAE to keep their playoff hopes alive. RCB have to wade off Mumbai Indians’ challenge in their comeback quest. It is the battle of big guns in Dubai. RCB will hope that the venue change will help their luck too.
MI are not looking their same old self this season:
Mumbai Indians were clearly the best team in the tournament last season. They dominated games right through IPL 2020. But MI surprisingly have not worn that same champions tag this season. The dominance has deserted them. Their much-coveted middle and lower-middle order have failed to deliver. The form of Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan has added to their woes. MI much like RCB have lost both games in UAE thus far. They will look to reverse their fortunes when they clash against RCB.
