MI vs BLR Dream11 Team Prediction | 48th Match | Dream11 IPL 2020

Mumbai Indians will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 48th Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will provide MI vs BLR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Mumbai Indians:

Mumbai Indians have been playing brilliantly as they are currently at the top of the points table with 7 wins and four losses and a total of 14 points.

Rohit Sharma’s injury has been a big concern for the team as he is one of the top batsmen in the world and the captain for Mumbai Indians. He has also been excluded from all Indian team formats for Australia’s tour, which has raised doubts about whether he will continue to play IPL.

Quinton de Kock has appeared to be in the right touch and is scoring well from the top for MI. Ishan Kishan has been doing a great job in his newly assigned role as an opener, and Surya Kumar Yadav has been brilliant as always, batting well at No.3.

Hardik Pandya batted brilliantly in the last match and finished the batting for MI at a perfect score, and Kieron Pollard has also been superb with the bat this season. In the lower middle-order, Krunal Pandya has an excellent bat and has also been decent with the ball picking up wickets when required.

Another spinner Rahul Chahar has been one of the best spinners this season as he has been consistently picking up wickets in the middle overs. The bowling trio Bumrah, Boult, and Pattinson have been extraordinary this season as each of them has been performing well in every match and have picked up wickets.

Mumbai Indians need to win one more match to qualify for playoffs, and with the way they have been playing, it looks an easy road for them.

  • Skipper Rohit Sharma/Ishan Kishan will open the inning along with Quinton de Kock.
  • Surya Kumar Yadav, Sourabh Tiwary/Ishan Kishan, allrounder Hardik Pandya, and Kieron Pollard will form the team’s middle order.
  • Krunal Pandya will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • James Pattinson, Trent Boult, and Jasprit Bumrah will handle the team’s pace attack.
  • Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya will be the spin duo of the team.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

RCB has also performed well so far in this season as they are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with seven wins and four losses and a total of 14 points.

The Royal Challengers, after two back-to-back wins, lost very severely against CSK in the last match. The woes for Aaron Finch continue as he got out early in the previous game also. Devdutt Padikkal has been batting decently, but his approach has been prolonged, and thus, the team is not getting the start they would have expected.

In the middle overs. Virat Kohli has played well by rotating strike, and the running between the wickets has been brilliant. Still, he has not been hitting enough boundaries, which is putting pressure on the upcoming batsmen.

ABD has appeared to be in perfect form this season and has even won 2-3 games for RCB with his batting. Washington Sundar has been bowling well in the powerplay and has also picked up crucial wickets.

Chris Morris has been at his best so far, picking up wickets in almost all the matches he played this season and also batted brilliantly in one of the games. Yuzvendar Chahal has been their go-to bowler to pick up wickets in the middle overs, and he is delivered every time.

Mohammad Siraj has either been brilliant or has been just smashed all over the park for runs. Navdeep Saini has been bowling at a perfect pace and troubling the batsmen with his speed, but he has struggled to pick up wickets. Isuru Udana has been brilliant with the ball in the death overs.

Royal Challengers also need to win one more match to qualify for playoffs, but at the same time, if they lose all their remaining games, they might be out of the tournament.

  • Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal will open for RCB.
  • The middle-order looks good with Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Shivam Dube/Gurkeerat Singh Mann.
  • All-rounders Washington Sundar and Chris Morris will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Navdeep Saini, Chris Morris, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Mohammad Siraj will form the team’s core bowling attack.
