MI vs RCB Live: Mumbai opt to bowl vs Bangalore

Virat Kohli: “I would have done the same. As Rohit said, it’s a difficult ground to defend and we’re good at chasing. So, we would have bowled first too. Wouldn’t want to look too far ahead. Key is to enjoy as many games as we have left. I think we were taking too much pressure in the initial few games and we kept falling back. The guys enjoyed a lot in the last game and showed desire. We’re playing the same team.”

Rohit Sharma: “We’re gonna bowl first. The nature of the ground says that it plays better in the second half. Also it’s something our team is good at. Yes, it was a tough loss (against RR) but you need to give them credit. Jos Buttler played a fab knock. We have one change – Alzarri is injured, Malinga is back.”

Pitch report
“There is a bit of grass, a good covering across the surface. 192 is the average score here batting first. High scoring ground it is. Dew is around and so, teams would want to bat second. Score a lot and then, you might have a chance (if batting first)” – Mpumelelo Mbangwa
