Virat Kohli would hope that his side won't repeat the same mistakes when they face Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians at the Dubai International Stadium on Monday. While MI come into this contest on the back of a win against KKR, RCB will be looking to bounce back with a win after their loss to KXIP. However, both sides are packed with some global stars of the game.

Where is the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) being held?

A lot will depend on Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma who have looked good in the competition.

RCB started on a winning note but then their star-studded collapsed against Kings XI Punjab, resulting in a humbling 97-run defeat.

Quinton de Kock played a decent knock in the first game but missed out in the next one. So, MI would be aware of the threat that the former South African captain possesses. Rohit Sharma was outstanding in that game, smashing 80 off just 54 balls. AB de Villiers continued to impress but he needs the support of batsmen around him to make a mark.

Apart from their batting prowess, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard can jointly perform the role of an additional bowler, but MI coach Mahela Jayawardane has made it clear that they don't want to take any risks with Hardik, who is playing after a long break following a back injury. RCB's Shivam Dube has been the surprise package as he has bowled well with his medium pace. The return of Jasprit Bumrah to form also augurs well for Mumbai.

Their spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar bowled well for them but there was only as much that they could do. Navdeep Saini is also a decent option.

The clash will take place from 7.30 p.m IST onwards and in the absence of fans amid the coronavirus pandemic.The match will be telecast on Star Sports Network, while the live streaming of the tie will be available on Star's streaming application Hotstar.
