Winless Mumbai Indians (MI) will try to get the first points of the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) season. On Tuesday, when they host a beleaguered Royal Challengers Bangalore in an IPL match at the Wankhede Stadium. Both teams are yet to find their feet in the cash-rich league and are desperate to find their form back. Both the games played at the Wankhede so far have gone down to the wire and on both occasions MI have had their chances to register a victory but failed to do so. First, against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the season opener and then to Delhi Daredevils.
If MI have their problems to sort out, having lost at the death in all three games so far, RCB too have their own shortcomings to address with only one win in three games under their belt. Having lost all the three matches till now, the three-time champions led by Rohit Sharma are currently placed at the bottom of the table. RCB started off on the losing note to Kolkata Knight Riders but brought their campaign on track immediately with a convincing victory over Kings XI Punjab at home and then lost a high-scoring game to Rajasthan Royals at home on Sunday.
