IPL 2021 1st Match Squad Comparison

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians PredictionsThe defending champions have a strong squad with most of the key players in solid form as they take on RCB in the opening match of IPL 2021. Many cricket experts have predicted that Mumbai Indians will be the first team to complete a hat-trick of IPL title wins. Big-hitting batsmen Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav recently made their T20I debut for India and were impressive. Other in-form batsmen in the side include Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, and Krunal Pandya. MI signed Piyush Chawla in the auction and it will be interesting to see if the veteran leg-break bowler gets a chance to feature in the playing XI.


The pace trio of Tent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, and Nathan Coulter-Nile form one of the strongest bowling attacks in IPL. Bowling all-rounders James Neesham and Marco Jensen have joined Mumbai Indians this season along with Arjun Tendulkar. Batting all-rounder Anukul Roy is an uncapped player to watch out for in this MI squad. It is tough to get a break in the MI playing XI given how consistent their regular players are. While this may not be great news for new players looking to make their debut or make an impression on the big stage, this consistency gives MI a huge edge over the opposition.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB Betting Tips & PredictionsVirat Kohli will be expecting a better show from his team this time around. While RCB lost to SRH in the Eliminator match last season, it wasn’t a surprise given their inconsistency throughout the season. Kohli and AB de Villiers have long been carrying the Challengers on their shoulders. It is high time other players step up and take the scoring responsibility. The signing of all-rounders like Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Christian, and Daniel Sams allows RCB to add depth to their batting lineup.


They’ve also roped in the NZ wicket-keeper batsman Finn Allen to add more firepower to their batting lineup. Devdutt Padikkal is a promising top-order batsman who had a great season last year. He will be crucial once again to get RCB off to a great start. Some key additions to the RCB bowling attack are Kyle Jamieson and Kane Richardson. Mohammad Siraj had an impressive outing on the international stage and will come in with a lot of confidence. Navdeep Saini will be the one to watch out for in the pace attack.

Our Prediction for Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Mumbai Indians to win this match

Both teams have strong squads with great bowling and batting all-rounders. RCB signing Daniel Christian, Daniel Sams, Maxwell, and Jamieson adds more strength in the all-rounders’ department. Kohli and company are likely to be revamped with the new options they’ve got in the squad. However, Mumbai Indians have worked with the same squad for a quite long while RCB will have to work to form a new playing XI and a new approach to their game. Moreover, Mumbai also has their players in great form and are coming off a solid international season. As a result, the top betting sites in India have given MI the advantage over RCB valuing them at odds of 1.67.
