1. Team News - Royal Challengers Bangalore
The Kohli's Army will have to take a few urgent calls. They will have to mull whether to give a break to Dale Steyn, who had gone for plenty in the last two matches and looked a pale shadow of his terrifying self. Steyn had given away 90 runs 7.4 overs for a wicket at 11.73. The RCB management might bring in either Chris Morris, subject to his fitness, or Sri Lanka pacer Isuru Udana to replace Steyn. Similarly, the other frontline pacer Umesh Yadav too had leaked runs, 83 runs in 7 overs at 11.85. Umesh too could be given a break and they can bring in Moahmmed Siraj.
2. Team News - Mumbai Indians
They came up with a strong effort against KKR and their charge was led by skipper Rohit, who made a fine fifty. Surya Kumar Yadav too chipped in nicely and their bowling unit too looked to have regained its mojo once Jasprit Bumrah refocussed his radar. The Mumbai will be eager to reproduce that wholesome team effort against RCB and get a move on in the IPL points table. They might not do any major rejigging of the squad.
