MI vs RCB Live score - IPL 2013 Match 37 Mumbai vs Bangalore
IPL 2013 MI vs RCB Live score ball by ball updates. Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore is 37th match of IPL T20 2013.
It never got bigger than this in the Indian Premier League: Two big teams, both coming off victories, clash in one of the biggest cricket-loving cities of the country. Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Mumbai Indians in an away match after a resounding win over Pune Warriors India.
Mumbai Indians are also in an upbeat mood after winning their away match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Sunil Narine’s heroics with the ball just not being enough for the home team, which last on the penultimate ball of the thrilling match.
If there is one factor that is going to weigh in favour of the Mumbai Indians, it is the fact that the RCB have home conditions to thank for their run to the top of the points table this far in the tournament.
Close finishes notwithstanding, truth is that RCB ended up losing the two matches they have played away; those against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings. While the match against SRH they lost in the Super Over, CSK beat them with one ball to spare.
How Chris Gayle is able to adapt to conditions at Mumbai is going to be the deciding factor in this match. For, if the conditions here do not bother him and he is able to continue the way he has so far in the tournament, especially the way he batted in the last match, then Mumbai Indians have a match on hand.
Though the Bangalore crowds adore him and cheer him on providing the catalyst for the big-hitting Jamaican, Mumbai’s cosmopolitan and cricket-loving crowd is not going to make him feel out of home. A good game of cricket is much appreciated in Tendulkar’s backyard.
