Coming on the back of their maiden win in the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL), Virat Kohli-led side will look to capitalise on the same and maintain their winning momentum when they lock horns with Team Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday.
Skipper Kohli (67) and AB de Villiers (59) not only pulled back blistering half-centuries but also shared a crucial stand of 85 runs for the second wicket to help Bangalore chase down the respectable target of 174 runs with four balls to spare to clinch an eight-wicket win over Ravichandran Ashwin-led Punjab.
Heading into the clash against Mumbai, Bangalore will once again heavily rely on Kohli and de Villiers.
As far as bowling attack is concerned, India's Yuzvendra Chahal is the biggest asset for Bangalore as he is currently the second-highest wicket-taker of the 2019 IPL with 11 wickets.
