Following repeated failures in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) face up against each other at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday, September 26. The match would begin at 3:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time). Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore were among the four sides who had ended in the first-half of the points table when the IPL was postponed midway earlier this year. They have underperformed much against expectations. Mumbai faced a defeat to Chennai Super Kings in the first match since IPL resumed and then, suffered a nine-wicket thrashing at the hands of Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders and now all of a sudden, they find themselves in the sixth place and in desperate need of a win to once get back in contention for a place in the last four. Subsequently, a defeat in this match could potentially end their title defense. Rohit Sharma, who opens the MI innings with Proteas glovesman Quinton De Kock, would be eager to not just getting a good start but also converting that into a good total.

Bangalore still are third on the table but Virat Kohli would be raring to pick up one win, which would get their campaign back on track. Like Mumbai, Bangalore have been outplayed twice in the UAE of IPL 2021 so far–against Kolkata and then, Chennai. With their misfiring middle-order, much of the run-scoring would depend on captain Kohli and his partner Devdutt Padikkal.
