Talk to Astrologers

General Overview

The five-time champion Mumbai Indians (MI) will be locked in a ferocious faceoff against the beloved Virat Kohli team, with captain Faf du Plessis holding the reins of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The M Chinnaswamy Stadium’s pitch is one that batters favour; because it is batter-friendly, the game is anticipated to be high-scoring. The spinners, however, have a significant effect on the game.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)

On Sunday at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Royal Challengers Bangalore, who have yet to win the Indian Premier League, will open their 2023 season against the five-time defending champion Mumbai Indians.

Due to Rajat Patidar and Josh Hazlewood missing at least the first half of this IPL due to injuries, RCB is expected to have a few holes in their starting XI. Glenn Maxwell of Australia is also not expected to play on Sunday, and Wanindu Hasaranga of Sri Lanka will not be available for the team until after April 9 due to his international cricket obligations.

RCB has a power-packed team of batters like Dewald Brevis (o), Rohit Sharma (c) & Suryakumar Yadav. It has bagged three phenomenal wicketkeepers: Ishan Kishan, Tristan Stubbs (o) & Vishnu Vinod. Finally comes the bowling squad of RCB, including Akash Madhwal, Jason Behrendorff (o), Jasprit Bumrah, Kumar Kartikeya, Piyush Chawla, Raghav Goyal & Sandeep Warrier. There are a number of all-rounders as a part of the team. 

The probable playing 11 team is:

  • Virat Kohli
  • Faf du Plessis (c)
  • Mahipal Lomror
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Shahbaz Ahmed
  • Dinesh Karthik (wk)
  • Michael Bracewell
  • David Willey
  • Harshal Patel
  • Mohammed Siraj
  • Aakash Deep 

Mumbai Indians (MI)

Mumbai Indians, the five-time IPL champions, had a disastrous season in 2017, losing an unprecedented eight games in succession at one point. Picking themselves up from that point was indeed a tough task. The Rohit Sharma-led team ended last in the standings with just four victories from 14 games as their batters struggled and their bowlers were rendered useless. But since then, it has been all uphill. They have proved themselves time and again by winning the IPL season not once or twice but 5 times to make themselves loud and clear. They play to win. 

The probable playing 11 of the team is:

  • Rohit Sharma [c], 
  • Ishan Kishan [wk]
  • Cameron Green
  • Suryakumar Yadav
  • Tilak Varma
  • Tim David
  • Vishnu Vinod
  • Arshad Khan
  • Jofra Archer
  • Kumar Kartikeya
  • Jason Behrendorff. 

Mumbai is in a rough spot because their key bowler, the one and only Jaspreet Bumrah, will not be playing the entire season on account of a surgery he is going through. Let’s see how the game unfolds. Whatever happens, you will be on the edge of your seat trying to articulate what happens next!

RCB vs MI Toss Prediction

In T20 games played at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, only 41.1% of sides who bat first have won. Therefore, in IPL match 5 toss prediction, both sides will likely want to get the ball first. At this location, bowlers frequently feel in the game, so on Sunday, 2nd April 2023, we anticipate a par score of no higher than 175 on this field. The contest will take place in warm weather with a high of 20 degrees. In the second part of the game, the humidity will rise, but only to a maximum of 45%. 

As per our astrological calculations. Mumbai Indians have a higher chance of winning the toss. However, the probability is just 60-40, with Royal Challengers being the latter. So a shocking twist of events can be expected.

RCB vs MI Match prediction

Who will win IPL match 5?

In its last 5 games against MI, including the most recent 3, RCB has prevailed 4 times. This season, the Mumbai Indians are without some of their essential stars, including Bumrah. On their side, the Royal Challengers have a superior sense of balance. While Bumrah is out this season, Jofra Archer is back in the MI team. Hazlewood, who is injured, won’t be seen competing for RCB in the opening rounds of the IPL. Cameron Green, an all-around player, will help the MI team this year. With such heavy weights on both sides, the scales can tilt in anyone’s favour. Therefore, let us look at some astrological predictions to knowSCB vs MI who will win today?

Royal Challengers Bangalore

At the mini-auction, which took place in December of last year, Royal Challengers made a few wise decisions. Reece Topley, an English speedster, cost them INR 1.9 crores, and Will Jacks cost them INR 3.2 crores. Michael Bracewell has substituted Jacks because he has been forced to withdraw from the competition due to a thigh injury. And then comes the evergreen player Virat Kohli. Virat’s horoscope features the Rahu Mahadasa in the third house, which bestows upon him qualities of bravery, assurance, and vigour. Virat, the blunt and powerful man, easily dominates the sport of cricket. The most important planet in his horoscope is Saturn, which is considered to be the strongest by shadbala and represents sincerity, punctuality, and willpower that will propel him to success. With these qualities in the hands of a strong player, RCB is all set to win. 

Mumbai Indians 

Let’s use astrological calculations to predict the Mumbai Indians’ IPL 2019 performance. Astrologically speaking, Rohit Sharma is a Libra, while the Mumbai Indians are Leos. The extremely fortunate Navpancham Yoga is formed when Leo and Saturn, who is in Sagittarius, combine. Rohit Sharma will have the conflicting influence of his planet with the team’s horoscope. This means there is a big chance that he might be a liability to the team today. However, there is an equal probability that the stars will be in his favour, and the tables turn towards Mumbai Indians. It is going to be a nerve-wracking match for sure. Mumbai Indians still have a team full of match-winners of the highest calibre despite their extremely disappointing 2022 season. But this is a very challenging first game.

Final Overview: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians astrology prediciton

As per astrological calculations and past performances, it can be said that the match is in favour of Royal Challengers Bangalore today. With Mumbai Indians missing a few of their best players, they will struggle to maintain a fine run rate throughout the game. 

According to RCB vs MI match prediction, today will mark the start of the Royal Challengers’ first trophy campaign. They reached the playoffs last year but were prevented from going any further by a defeat in the second eliminator. They have a brand-new season ahead of them and will aim to capture their first IPL title. On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians had a terrible season and finished last in the standings last year. They only succeeded in winning four of their fourteen games and only managed to rack up eight total points. It will be interesting to observe how they act without Jasprit Bumrah’s assistance. They would go above and beyond to win their sixth IPL championship. Today IPL toss win will be playing a key role in determining the fate of the teams.
