This is the first game between these two IPL giants this season. Their overall head to head record from previous seasons is balanced, with Mumbai winning five of the nine contests.
Although both the teams were favorites to win the IPL before the tournament started, they are not poised in such a position after the completion of about two-thirds of the total league games.
Mumbai stands at the third spot, while the RCB is placed seventh on the points table. However, they are separated by only three points.
Both the teams have very strong batting lineups but Mumbai’s bowling has more bite in it. Mumbai’s top three bowlers are among the top ten wicket takers for the tournament so far, while RCB’s best bowler, Zaheer Khan is at number 18 in that list.
Similarly, Mumbai Indians have the best bowling average of 21.80 in the tournament, as compared to a 36.28 for the RCB. Furthermore, the MI is the most economical team of IPL 2012 against the worst economy rate for the RCB.
The RCB’s skipper, Daniel Vettori sat himself on the bench to make way for Murali in the last game. Murali performed well but the rest of the bowling was impotent.
Overall, with so many big players like Gayle, DeVilliers, Kohli, Vettori, Murali, Zaheer, Tendulkar, Malinga and Harbajhan will make it a treat for the cricket fans to watch.
