It’s Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore in today’s first Match of IPL 10. A beaten and confused RCB side face well confident Mumbai Indians. It’s fair to say RCB management do not know which team to pick – Travis Head failed to impress while others including Mandeep Singh, Vishnu Vinod, Sachin Baby and Stuart Binny haven’t done much. Kedar Jadhav hasn’t lived up to his reputation while de Villiers and Chris Gayle too haven’t done justice to their figures. On the hand MI side look balanced after their nerve-wracking thriller against Lions and are expected to stick to the same starting eleven against RCB. For visitors Shane Watson and Gayle are available if they plan to leave out Travis Head in this match. Check Starting XI for both teams, Watch MI vs RCB Live streaming here.

With RCB still looking for a in-form starting XI it’s easy to say MI has the advantage. However, RCB may play spoil sport. It’s just a matter of time for RCB batting lineup to click just right.
