New Delhi: In a crucial match, the Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in March 42 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 today.
Despite being studded with some of the finest players from across the globe, both these teams have struggled to live up to the expectations of their fans.
MI, who are the defending champions, have won just five out of ten matches and are currently in the points table.
Bangalore, despite their skipper's brilliant form, are sixth.
While both the teams rely heavily on their respective skippers to do the bulk of the scoring, they will have to collectively fire as an unit to advance in the latter stage of the tournament.
Here are the possible playing XIs:
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Lokesh Rahul (wk), Virat Kohli (capt), Shane Watson, AB de Villiers, Travis Head, Sachin Baby, Parvez Rasool, Stuart Binny, Yuzvendra Chahal, Chris Jordan, Varun Aaron
