What the captains are saying:

Virat Kohli: Key is to enjoy as many games as we have left. I think we were taking too much pressure in the initial few games and we kept falling back. The guys enjoyed a lot in the last game and showed desire.  

Rohit Sharma: We're gonna bowl first. The nature of the ground says that it plays better in the second half. Also it's something our team is good at. Yes, it was a tough loss (against RR) but you need to give them credit. 

Apr 15, 2019, 07.44 PM

What to expect:

Fresh from a much awaited victory, Bangalore will be aiming to maintain winning momentum and spoil Mumbai's party. 

After a string of losses where nothing worked in their favour, fifties by skipper Virat Kohli and ever-reliable Ab de Villiers, helped Bangalore register their maiden win of the season on Saturday night. 

The team is heavily reliant on Kohli and de Villiers and both would be keen to recreate their magic in front of a capacity crowd in Mumbai, on a day when the Indian team for the upcoming World Cup is scheduled to be picked.

Despite the win against Punjab, Bangalore remain at the bottom of the points table and remain to win all their remaining league games to have any hopes of progressing in the tournament.
