Pitch Behaviour

     Batting favour


     On April 2 at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru, Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Mumbai Indians in the 5th match of the Indian Premier League 2023 on Sunday. The match begins at 07:30 PM IST.

     Jasprit Bumrah, a crucial frontline spinner for Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians, won't be available. Nonetheless, they have Jofra Archer back and he is well enough to play this year.

     As long as Josh Hazlewood is sidelined due to injury, Faf du Plessis will continue to captain the Royal Challengers, who will start the game with just one player. For the 2023 season, MI has acquired Jason Beherendorff from RCB. Siraj and Harshal Patel will be the RCB's pace attack leaders.
