Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – IPL 2020, Match 10

Virat Kohli scored just 15 runs in two games thus far. However, the RCB skipper is expected to come good in this encounter as he rarely misses out three times in a row.


Match Details:

The 10th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.

This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.


The Royal Challengers Bangalore will be back on the field to take on the Mumbai Indians in 10th match of IPL 2020. It is going to be Virat Kohli versus Rohit Sharma once again – one of those battles that are highly-awaited. Historically, the Mumbai Indians have had a significant upper hand over the Royal Challengers. While the Indians won 16 out of 25 games, the Challengers won only 9.

Moreover, the Mumbai-based team is coming into this game after an emphatic 49-run win against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Meanwhile, RCB lost to the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by a massive margin of 97 runs in their last encounter. Hence, their NRR stands at -2.175 at this stage and that is one area where they’d like to improve. However, it won’t be as easy against MI and RCB need to be at their best if they are to challenge this opposition.
