IPL 2024 MI vs RCB: Match preview, head-to-head and streaming details

In their 32 head-to-head encounters, MI have emerged victorious on 18 occasions, while RCB have triumphed 14 times.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 witnesses a much-awaited face-off between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai tonight at 7:30 PM IST.

The five-time IPL champions have occupied a precarious eighth position in the points table, having managed just one win in four matches. Their solitary victory came in their previous outing against Delhi Capitals (DC). Openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan, along with middle-order batters, Tilak Varma and Tim David, displayed glimpses of brilliance but haven’t converted them into substantial scores consistently. The return of the explosive Suryakumar Yadav adds firepower to the batting lineup, while Romario Shepherd provides depth. However, their bowling attack remains a concern, lacking consistency except for Jasprit Bumrah and the promising Gerald Coetzee.

On the other hand, the Bengaluru-based franchise finds itself in an even more state of bother, languishing at the ninth spot with just one win from five matches. Their batting has largely relied on the in-form Virat Kohli, the current leading run-scorer in IPL 2024. However, skipper Faf du Plessis and the Aussie duo of Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green haven’t fired yet, putting immense pressure on the rest. The bowling attack, spearheaded by Mohammed Siraj, has been a major letdown. With every defeat, RCB’s chances of a playoff berth diminish, making this match a must-win encounter to gain momentum moving ahead.


In their 32 head-to-head encounters in the IPL, MI have emerged victorious on 18 occasions, while RCB have triumphed 14 times. This match promises a fierce battle between two teams desperate to get their campaigns back on track.
