MI vs RCB Pitch Report:
As usual, the surface at Wankhede Stadium has been extremely favourable for batsmen. This season, the 200-run mark has been surpassed twice in four contests. Additionally, this pitch has bounce, which allows pure strikers to enter the game. A similar pitch is anticipated to be provided, and with some of the best T20 players scheduled to play, a high-scoring match is likely.
Will Pitch Make a Difference?
Yes, unquestionably. It is very difficult to defend the scores at the venue. MI pursued 213 runs at the Wankhede Stadium in their previous match. In addition, the average tally in the first inning during this season has been 192. In four IPL 2023 matches, only once has the team batting first triumphed.
