Rohit Sharma returned to form against Kolkata Knight Riders when he played an 80 match-winning knockout to give Mumbai Indians their first victory in the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL). Mumbai Indians face Royal Challengers Bangalore ( RCB) at Dubai International Stadium on Monday and the job will again be with Rohit to get his team off to a good start. For RCB, Yuzvendra Chahal will be the key to stop Rohit from taking the game from them.
Chahal has been Virat Kohli’s go-to bowler in the RCB attack, and he will let his work go when the Bangalore-based franchise takes on the defending champions.
Chahal has played 86 IPL matches and picked up 104 wickets at an economic rate of 7.71.
Rohit Sharma is just 10 runs away from hitting the 5,000 run milestone in IPL and the right-handed batsman will try to make it a special occasion.
Aside from Chahal, none of the RCB bowlers have looked like they upset the batsmen and if Rohit can see the leg spinner, Mumbai Indians will have the upper hand in the match.
The match between Chahal and Rohit could very well determine the outcome of the match between RCB and MI.
Mumbai Indians get into this game after a convincing win over Kolkata Knight Riders, while Royal Challengers Bangalore have to answer a few questions after hammering they got against Kings XI Punjab in their previous league match.
