IPL 2021 | Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore LIVE Score
IPL fever is yet again upon amidst all the election battles happening across states and even as the gloom of rising COVID-19 cases hang over us. Nevertheless, cricket fans and others will have something else to talk about for the next month and a half, as IPL 2021 kicks off with the Mumbai Indians (MI) taking on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, in what promises to be a blockbuster clash.
The head-to-head numbers are massively in the favour of MI who have won 19 of the 29 games they have played against the RCB. However, the defending champions have always had a slow start in the last few years, having lost their opening game since 2013. RCB on the other hand have always been a hit-or-miss team touted as the biggest under-achievers of the IPL. Kohli will be hoping that the big names in his side turn up on the day, something that the RCB have always struggled with.
The match will begin at 07:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
