Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Mumbai Indians (MI) IPL 2017 Today Match Prediction 14/4/2017 - Match 12 - First match

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Mumbai Indians (MI) IPL 2017 Today Match Prediction 14/4/2017 - Match 12 - First match.

Virat is Back.. !!!!!!!!!!

 India captain Virat Kohli will return to bolster Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) campaign when they take on Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017.Kohli, who had dropped hints of making a return after posting a video on his Instagram account of his gym session on April 11, did some fielding drills during the team's net session, yesterday (April 12).
Last year, Kohli had scored a staggering 973 runs in 16 matches with four centuries to guide RCB to the finals against Sunrisers Hyderabad and he would look to improve Bangalore's current sixth place standing on the points table.

Kohli also said Royal Challengers are unlikely to bat first again at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. "We decided to strengthen our bowling and then back that part of our side, but now with me coming back that might change again," Kohli said. "Bangalore has generally been a ground where you can chase down high totals. Tomorrow, being a day game really matters because the wicket plays much better under lights than during the day time."

Since Lasith Malinga's return from international duty, only Ambati Rayudu's absence does not let them be a full-strength side. Their headache is the form of fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan, who has conceded 129 runs and taken three wickets in three games this season. In a like-for-like replacement, Mumbai may bring in Tim Southee for McClenaghan.
In Kohli's absence, AB de Villiers made his presence felt as he smashed his way to an unbeaten 89 off just 46 balls to help RCB post a respectable 148-4 in his comeback match after recovering from an injury.

The single-handed show by the South African, however, couldn't save the blushes of his team as RCB went down by eight wickets to Kings XI Punjab in their last match. The poor form of Chris Gayle is also a concern for RCB.
The West Indian power-hitter has been struggling to carve out big scores, which is reflected in his failure to score even one-half century in his last 10 innings.
Gayle will be hoping to make a comeback in the team, especially after being dropped in the game against Punjab.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1 Chris Gayle, 2 Virat Kohli, 3 AB de Villiers, 4 Shane Watson, 5 Kedar Jadhav, 6 Mandeep Singh, 7 Stuart Binny, 8 Pawan Negi, 9 Tymal Mills, 10 Yuzvendra Chahal, 11 Aniket Choudhary

Mumbai Indians: 1 Parthiv Patel, 2 Jos Buttler, 3 Rohit Sharma, 4 Nitish Rana, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Krunal Pandya, 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Harbhajan Singh, 9 Tim Southee, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Jasprit Bumrah
