Indian Premier league 2018: Slow starters Mumbai Indians in familiar space after back to back 3 losses
Kohli said at the toss that the dampness and overhead conditions had prompted him to elect to bowl, an assessment that seemed ideal after the first two balls, both of which beat the inside edge, one of a right-hander and the other of a left-hander, one off the pitch another with bend through the air. Mayank Markande is the budget enabler of choice, if you need the money to afford one of the big hitters, though I wouldn't expect too much from him at a run-laden Wankhede track. So if they perform as per the expectations, fans could witness another high-scoring game. With an average of 89 and a strike rate of 163, he will be risky this year! On five occasions already (till April 15), teams have scored more than 14 in the first over; that happened only twice previous year.
RCB then lost AB De Villiers for one, Mandeep Singh for 16 and Anderson for a first-ball duck before the midway point of their innings. Rohit Sharma then got support from the Pandya brothers - Krunal (15), Hardik (17) - in the latter part of the innings which took the total beyond 200.
K Pandya to C Anderson went down.An easy catch for Duminy (sub) in the deep mid-wicket region.
Anderson's last over went for 21 runs as Mumbai plundered 70 runs off the last 30 deliveries. However, the team lost the match. Similar to this season, they had lost five of their first six matches in IPL 2015, including the first four.
Expect nothing less than a high voltage clash from the two teams. In 19.2 overs KXIP scored 155 runs so far. The dip in run rate between overs 7 and 10 is largely because several wickets have fallen in the sixth and the ninth overs and impacted the scoring rate. The team has been carried by the performances of youngster, Sanju Samson, and the numbers don't lie. They faced defeat in their first match against KKR by batting first. They finished their 20 overs on 167 for eight. One delivery that has been especially effective is the googly. A lot of Indian domestic batsmen have struggled against the googly; they average 18 against the googly, while worldwide batsmen average 15.
Statistics work in favor of Mumbai Indians as RCB hasn't won a single game against them since the past two seasons.
